It's always nice to hear of what former pop stars are up, to and the reports from Lauryn Hill's recent Atlanta gig sound like something we'll all be a little sad to have missed:

"The reclusive singer emerged from hibernation to take the stage in 60s getup and an apparent mushroom wig to perform at the event. [...] Her band was distorted, and her usually full, soulful voice was unusually raw and weakened. [...] After plodding through three more “Miseducation” tunes and reciting a poem, Hill abruptly bounced to a round of silence. No applause. No boos. No anything, except perhaps stunned silence. The venue’s curfew was soon tossed around as a possible reason for the sudden ending."

There are few things more precious than a gig so puzzling the audience don't know if they should boo or if they're just missing something...
