Former Fugees singer, Lauryn Hill on why she didn’t bother paying her taxes:  “I am a child of former slaves who had a system imposed on them. I had an economic system imposed on me.”

Needless to say, the judge wasn’t sympathetic to Lauryn Hill’s bullsh*t and slapped her with three months in jail and three months of home confinement. She owes the IRS $500,000. Her lawyers said she has already paid $970,000.
