Quote Of The Day: Lauryn Hill Clears Up Rumors About Performing With Nicki Minaj

"No disrespect to Nicki, but I need to clear up an inaccuracy. I was not scheduled to be a special guest on her set at Summer Jam, I was invited by Nas to perform with him. I don’t have details on exactly what transpired between the station and the artists, but I do support artists standing by their beliefs, and walking with integrity. We have to find a better way to commercially exploit music, while giving artists their proper respect. This cannot be done while taking their contributions for granted, or trying to control the scope of their growth and power through threats and fear tactics. We can do better than this, there is a better way, or else ‘we’ (the proverbial we) find ourselves in danger of being hypocrites!!! Ms. Lauryn Hill" - Lauryn Hill, on supposedly performing with Nicki Minaj and supporting her pulling out as headliner. [via Karen Civil]
