Lauryn Hill Passes On Interview With Oprah Winfrey [Details]

Peaches GrantAugust 21, 2012

Lauryn Hill isn’t interested in a one-on-one interview with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.

Oprah may have lured the Kardashians, Rihanna, Bobbi Kristina Brown, Gabby Douglas and more to her weekly interview show Oprah’s Next Chapter, but Hill could careless. Oprah reached out to the reclusive singer and she turned her down.

Winfrey revealed the news to her Twitter followers after someone tweeted, “Get Lauryn Hill on your show ASAP!” Winfrey replied, “Tried. She said no.”

Winfrey uses her show to help boost ratings for OWN network, which has struggled to remain above water this year. An interview with Hill would have been a big score for Winfrey. The former Fugees front woman hasn’t granted many interviews or opened up about her personal life.

Hill recently pled guilty in June to tax evasion charges for not paying the IRS nearly a million dollars during 2005-2007. Hill said that her failure to pay taxes occurred during a time in which she removed herself from the public spotlight to protect her children. She faces up to three years in prison if convicted.
