According to TMZ, moments ago Lauryn Hill plead guilty to tax evasion charges brought forth by the government.
More from TMZ:
Hill pled guilty today to three counts of failure to file tax returns for the years 2005, 2006, and 2007 -- when she earned more than $1.8 million.
When the judge asked if Hill "intentionally and willingly" failed to file the returns, she replied, "Yes."
In addition to the 3 years behind bars, Hill could be smacked with $75,000 in fines.
Hill was released on $150,000 bail and her sentencing is set for November.
Jay-Z no longer holds the record for most shows in 24 hours as the Flaming Lips have knocked Hov out of the top spot.
From Rolling Stone:
This week the post-punkers from Oklahoma put on a fast-paced bus tour, stopping in eight different cities from Memphis to New Orleans and outperforming Jay-Z on the way.
The road trip was live-streamed as part of the third annual O Music Awards, which aired exclusively online. Viacom's newest award show became the company's most-viewed digital event and a Twitter trending topic as it aimed to recapture MTV's early off-the-cuff irreverence and unpredictability.
"When I was 16, this was the dream," Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne told reporters during a tour bus press conference, "the great inclusive adventure of touring. Honestly, I don't think a lot of artists now would look very good doing this."
In other news, Jay-Z wakes up everyday to Beyonce and half a billion dollars...so yeah.
