Beyonce Pissed Over Lauryn Hill Diss

Beyonce Pissed Over Lauryn Hill Diss
Entertainment

Beyonce wasn’t laughing when presenters joked about Lauryn Hill at the BET Awards.

At the award ceremony, comedian Mike Epps and the group Mindless Behavior were co-presenting the aware for Best R&B Artist when Epps began to sing.

One of the group members responded: “You sing bad … like Lauryn Hill’s tax accountant bad.”

The diss made Beyonce angry. When the singer won the award, she tossed her original acceptance speech and instead defended Lauryn Hill, saying: ”I want to thank all the talented R&B women that came before me like Lauryn Hill and Mary J. Blige.”

When Beyonce left the stage, she spoke to a woman, saying that the Lauryn Hill insult was “disrespectful and not cool.”

The woman complimented Beyonce for adding Hill’s name to her acceptance speech. Beyonce replied, ”I just felt [the diss] was wrong.”
