This week’s bad buzz: Lauryn Hill’s mess at the AccordHotel Arena
A disaster! American singer Lauryn Hill performed on Tuesday, November 20th and Wednesday, November 21th at the AccorHotel Arena in Paris. The audience was numerous, but not the singer! Indeed, she arrived with a 2:30 late and gave a concert of less than an hour that ended with a sudden cut of microphones and lights (the concert duration policy is very strict, en). After many lynching on social networks, the singer had published a message by presenting her apologies in Paris but also in Brussels happening the day before. The next day for her second date in Paris, Lauryn wanted to catch up. Despite the delay (again), the singer delighted the audience with her hits and her voice to fall.

The release of The 1975‘s upcoming album, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, is no longer very far! To keep the fans happy, the group has unveiled several singles including Give Yourself A Try, TOOTIMETOOTIMETOOTIME, or It’s Not Living If It’s Not With You, several titles that tell a little more about the universe of the record. Some clips have also been released, and this week it’s Sincerity Is Scary that was dressed in a clip. A very elaborate music video that reminds us of a Broadway musical in which the singer of the group Matt Healy, in a gangsta quickdraw, evolves in the street singing and dancing.
