Beyonce and Lauryn Hill Turn Down Interview With Oprah
She seems to have conquered all, the presidents, the royals, the celebrities and the Kardashian’s, but contrary to popular belief, Oprah Winfrey doesn’t always get what she wants.
This week it emerged that Grammy winner Lauryn Hill, who is currently awaiting sentencing on her failure to pay taxes on more than $1.5 million over a number of years, had declined Oprah’s request for an interview, as apparently she’s in no mood to discuss her tax woes.
Though Hill opened up about her reasons for not paying taxes in a missive posted to Tumblr, she just wasn’t up for discussing it on national television. Winfrey admitted Hill had turned her down on Twitter, responding to a fan’s request for a Lauryn feature with, “Tried. She said no.”
Oprah also revealed that she also hasn’t had any luck in getting Beyonce for a one-on-one interview. “See if you can convince Beyonce, I haven’t had luck yet,” Oprah tweeted to one fan.
Now y’all know Oprah too gets a ‘No”.
