You people are idiots - 1 album gets 5 Grammys - u dumb*sses dont know music!!! Why dont u Google her lyrics and witness her genius... I'm amazed how people with NO TALENT can be the biggest critics!!! You can't compare Lauryn Hill 2 no one before her! I wish some of you would just OFF yourself - the world would be a better place!!!

When I first saw this, I thought TMZ was saying that the guy who played Urkel dressed as Lauryn Hill.

OMG! WTF happened?!

I agree you don't get 5 grammys for ripping off other people's music. But, then again the statement made by a White trash, and so it stands we have stupid ass white trash who doesn't know what the heck, duhh, because white trash never do know ****.

In this industry image is everything... even substance. Heck, beauty sells records more than talent.

Lauren is still hands down one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen and still is. I don't blame her for keeping her true beauty at home.

She is playing with the media because she understands it and manipulates it to her will. She is like the complete antithesis to Madonna.

If she is back, its for her true fans. Not the media and those sucking on media's tit!

Ok, I'm taking bets. The smart money is on "Vicodin" but Vegas odds are tilting towards "accidentally took too much Ambien and cough syrup". Her "shot like JFK, if JFK was a naked black chick" video will be admitted as evidence at her psychological revue. All together now - "Koo Koo..."

Baddest female Mc ever not only female Mc but can outdo most her male counterparts as well but obviously some people know nothing about real music because the woman was/is the epitome of what IT is.Who gives a damn what she's wearing and shame on TMZ for even reporting this ish..

I get out, I get out of all your boxes
I get out, you can't hold me in these chains
I'll get out
Father free me from this bondage
Knowin' my condition
Is the reason I must change

[Verse 1]
Your stinkin' resolution
Is no type of solution
Preventin' me from freedom
Maintainin' your polution
I won't support your lie no more
I won't even try no more
If I have to die, oh Lord
That's how I choose to live
I won't be compromised no more
I can't be victimised no more
I just don't sympathize no more
Cuz now I understand
You just wanna use me
You say "love" then abuse me
You never thought you'd loose me
But how quickly we forget
That nothin' is for certain
You thought I'd stay here hurtin'
Your guilt trip's just not workin'
Repressin' me to death
Cuz now I'm choosin' life, yo
I take the sacrifice, yo
If everything must go, then go
That's how I choose to live

[Pause]

[Singing rest of Verse 1]
That's how I choose to live...
Hehehehe, awhh
No more compromises
I see past your diguises
Blindin' through mind control
Stealin' my eternal soul
Appealin' through material
To keep me as your slave

[Singing Chorus]
But I get out
Oh, I get out of all your boxes
I get out
Oh, you can't hold me in these chains
I'll get out
Oh, I want out of social bondage
Knowin' my condition
Oh, is the reason I must change

[Singing Verse 2]
See, what you see is what you get
Oh, and you ain't seen nothin' yet
Oh, I don't care if you're upset
I could care less if you're upset
See it don't change the truth
And your hurt feeling's no excuse
To keep me in this box
Psychological locks
Repressin' true expression
Cementin' this repression
Promotin' mass deception
So that no one can be healed
I don't respect your system
I won't protect your system
When you talk I don't listen
Oh, let my Father's will be done

[Singing Chorus]
And just get out
Oh, just get out of all these bondage
Just get out
Oh, you can't hold me in these chains
Just get out
All these traditions killin' freedom
Knowin' my condition
Is the reason I must change

[Singing Verse 3]
I've just accepted what you said
Keepin' me among the dead
The only way to know
Is to walk then learn and grow
But faith is not your speed
Oh, you've had everyone believed
That you're the sole authority
Just follow the majority
Afraid to face reality
The system is a joke
Oh, you'd be smart to save your soul
Oh, and escape this mind control
You spent your life in sacrifice
To a system for the dead
Oh, are you sure...
Where is the passion in this living
Are you sure it's God you servin'
Obligated to a system
Getting less then you're deserving
Who made up these schools, I say
Who made up these rules, I say
Animal conditioning
Oh, just to keep us as a slave

[Singing Chorus]
Oh, just get out
Of this social (?)-----> PURGATORY
Just get out
All these traditions are alive
Just get out
Superstition killing freedom
Knowin' my condition
Is the reason I must die
Just get out
Just get out
Just get out
Let's get out
Let's get out
Knowin' my condition
Is the reason I must die
Just get out *Lauryn Hill* I get out

i think she looks good no matter what shes wears you people would rather see he all dressed up in sexy attire or lady gaga wear then dress in a conservative manner i think this is a breath of fresh air and i hope it catchs on and maybe people would focus on vocal skill then on shocking looks and maybe noe adays music wouldent suck so much
