Lauryn Hill
just bought herself a couple weeks of freedom.

The R&B legend was to be sentenced to prison today after pleading guilty to blowing off her 2005-2007 tax returns ... but the sentencing was moved to May 6 to give Lauryn a chance to repay a chunk of her $968,000 tax debt.

Hill's attorney said the singer recently signed a million-dollar recording deal with Sony ... she was also planning to take out a $650,000 loan to put toward the bill.

Hill faces several years in prison ... but her attorney is hoping for probation.

She was at a concert in Western New York and said that all the white people had to leave. She said she wasn't going to feed her babies with white peoples' money. I hope she rots in jail.

Sure she should have paid her taxes like everyone else. Hopefully she will pay and avoid jail. This woman has house full of children and their Dad. Mr. Marley's walked out on her and his kids for another woman. So lay off Lauren. If she goes to prison then so be it. Her life has not been a bed of roses. Mostly her fault I am sure. But please just leave her alone.

If everyone else even wesley snipes have to pay/go to jail the same rules should apply to her. She was one of the top female artist n she chose not to pay, I would put her ass behind bars.
