I'd still hit it. Granted, I wouldn't track her into my own apartment or anything, but if I thought I could get away scot-free I would.

My intention has always been to get this situation rectified. When I was working consistently without being affected by the interferences mentioned above, I filed and paid my taxes. This only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.

I.e., I'm crazy now, leave me alone. Interesting defense. Good luck with that.

I conveyed all of this when questioned as to why I did not file taxes during this time period. Obviously, the danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution


Funny. I was sure that would work Lauren.

Lauryn dearest. We, the people of these cannabalistic, fascist United Hates of Amerika, don't really care if you've disappeared yourselves and are chillin' out in Ted Kaczynski's cabin in the woods. Neither do we care to ever see or hear from you again. But, we really would like to see the money you owe us in taxes. Otherwise the revenue police will getcha and send you away to Tax Cheat U. You might get a cell with Wesley Snipes and you might start collaborating on a book -- Tax Advice for Dummies (from Dummies).

FTA:

Having put the lives and needs of other people before my own for multiple years, and having made hundreds of millions of dollars for certain institutions, under complex and sometimes severe circumstances, I began to require growth and more equitable treatment, but was met with resistance. I entered into my craft full of optimism (which I still possess), but immediately saw the suppressive force with which the system attempts to maintain it's control over a given paradigm. I've seen people promote addiction, use sabotage, black listing, media bullying and any other coercion technique they could, to prevent artists from knowing their true value, or exercising their full power. These devices of control, no matter how well intentioned (or not), can have a devastating outcome on the lives of people, especially creative types who must grow and exist within a certain environment and according to a certain pace, in order to live and create optimally.

In other words, "I signed some pretty shiatty record deals that I regret, and now no one wants to listen to a broke down has-been whose voice has been obliterated by who knows what."

I knew a guy who was born and raised in the US (Missouri, I think) and only spoke English. But his mind was so disorganized, that talking to him was like talking to someone who spoke English as a second language, poorly, and only having learned it from books.

She's crazy, but her heart's in the right place.
In 2003, she was invited to do a Christmas concert at the Vatican and pulled a Sinead, attacking the Church for the child molestations.

The Pope wasn't there, but many cardinals were. That's awesome.

She's a really talented and bright artist, but too much money and fame hit her too young. That can really f*ck up a person. Fame isn't easy to live with.
 
2012-06-09 12:01:57 PM
"For the past several years, I have remained what others would consider underground. I did this in order to build a community of people, like-minded in their desire for freedom and the right to pursue their goals and lives without being manipulated and controlled by a media protected military industrial complex with a completely different agenda. Having put the lives and needs of other people before my own for multiple years, and having made hundreds of millions of dollars for certain institutions, under complex and sometimes severe circumstances, I began to require growth and more equitable treatment, but was met with resistance. I entered into my craft full of optimism (which I still possess), but immediately saw the suppressive force with which the system attempts to maintain it's control over a given paradigm. I've seen people promote addiction, use sabotage, black listing, media bullying and any other coercion technique they could, to prevent artists from knowing their true value, or exercising their full power. These devices of control, no matter how well intentioned (or not), can have a devastating outcome on the lives of people, especially creative types who must grow and exist within a certain environment and according to a certain pace, in order to live and create optimally.

I kept my life relatively simple, even after huge successes, but it became increasingly obvious that certain indulgences and privileges were expected to come at the expense of my free soul, free mind, and therefore my health and integrity. So I left a more mainstream and public life, in order to wean both myself, and my family, away from a lifestyle that required distortion and compromise as a means for maintaining it. During this critical healing time, there were very few people accessible to me who had not already been seduced or affected by this machine, and therefore who could be trusted to not try and influence or coerce me back into a dynamic of compromise. Individual growth was expected to take place unnaturally, or stagnated outright, subject to marketing and politics. Addressing critical issues like pop culture cannibalism or its manipulation of the young at the expense of everything, was frowned upon and discouraged by limiting funding, or denying it outright. When one has a prolific creative output like I did/do, and is then forced to stop, the effects can be dangerous both emotionally and psychologically, both for the artist and those in need of that resource. It was critically important that I find a suitable pathway within which to exist, without being distorted or economically strong-armed.

During this period of crisis, much was said about me, both slanted and inaccurate, by those who had become dependent on my creative force, yet unwilling to fully acknowledge the importance of my contribution, nor compensate me equitably for it. This was done in an effort to smear my public image, in order to directly affect my ability to earn independently of this system. It took a long time to locate and nurture a community of people strong enough to resist the incredibly unhealthy tide, and more importantly see through it. If I had not been able to make contact with, and establish this community, my life, safety and freedom, would have been directly affected as well as the lives, safety and freedom of my family. Failure to create a non toxic, non exploitative environment was not an option.

As my potential to work, and therefore earn freely, was being threatened, I did whatever needed to be done in order to insulate my family from the climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism that I was surrounded by. This was absolutely critical while trying to find and establish a new and very necessary community of healthy people, and also heal and detoxify myself and my family while raising my young children.

There were no exotic trips, no fleet of cars, just an all out war for safety, integrity, wholeness and health, without mistreatment denial, and/or exploitation. In order to liberate myself from those who found it ok to oppose my wholeness, free speech and integral growth by inflicting different forms of punitive action against it, I used my resources to sustain our safety and survival until I was able to restore my ability to earn outside of it!

When artists experience danger and crisis under the effects of this kind of insidious manipulation, everyone easily accepts that there was something either dysfunctional or defective with the artist, rather than look at, and fully examine, the system and its means and policies of exploiting/'doing business'. Not only is this unrealistic, it is very dark in its motivation, conveniently targeting the object of their hero worship by removing any evidence that they 'needed' or celebrated this very same resource just years, months or moments before. Since those who believe they need a hero/celebrity outnumber the actual heroes/celebrities, people feel safe and comfortably justified in numbers, committing egregious crimes in the name of the greater social ego. Ironically diminishing their own true hero-celebrity nature in the process.

It was this schism and the hypocrisy, violence and social cannibalism it enabled, that I wanted and needed to be freed from, not from art or music, but the suppression/repression and reduction of that art and music to a bottom line alone, without regard for anything else. Over-commercialization and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual. I Love making art, I Love making music, these are as natural and necessary for me almost as breathing or talking. To be denied the right to pursue it according to my ability, as well as be properly acknowledged and compensated for it, in an attempt to control, is manipulation directed at my most basic rights! These forms of expression, along with others, effectively comprise my free speech! Defending, preserving, and protecting these rights are critically important, especially in a paradigm where veiled racism, sexism, ageism, nepotism, and deliberate economic control are still blatant realities!!!

Learning from the past, insulating friends and family from the influence of external manipulation and corruption, is far more important to me than being misunderstood for a season! I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities, but I did however put my safety, health and freedom and the freedom, safety and health of my family first over all other material concerns! I also embraced my right to resist a system intentionally opposing my right to whole and integral survival.

I conveyed all of this when questioned as to why I did not file taxes during this time period. Obviously, the danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution.

My intention has always been to get this situation rectified. When I was working consistently without being affected by the interferences mentioned above, I filed and paid my taxes. This only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family.

As this, and other areas of issue are resolved and set straight, I am able to get back to doing what I should be doing, the way it should be done. This is part of that process. To those supporters who were told that I abandoned them, that is untrue. I abandoned greed, corruption, and compromise, never you, and never the artistic gifts and abilities that sustained me."
"To sum up, I didn't file my taxes because I have gone off the deep end."

tells us about your internet PhD. meanwhile you can read about a lot of people who had a taste of fame and saw the ugly side that are the machinations of the USA entertainment industry.

artists have been complaining about mistreatment by record labels since before we were born. there is huge chunks of truth in TFA. talent is treated like a commodity. since the talent is usually a sensitive, artistic and creative type that needs more careful handling than most, the offenses of the industry may be perceived as even more harsh.

her rant is not one born of mental illness. she is one more person who has seen the destructive manipulation of an industry first hand. thankfully she was awake and aware enough to shelter herself and her family from the scum before they fully devoured her.

best of luck to her and her tax problem. hopefully her future artistic endeavors will remain more under her control so she can flourish and grow in her expression.

Do I need a PHD. to mention similarities between somebody that I know who is mentally ill and the rantings of another person? And yes she may be pissed off at the music industry, but does that rant sound like something that would come from a person who is based in reality? A lot of times when mentally ill people have their crazy rants, they are based on a legitimate beef, it is just that their mental illness keeps them from communicating it in a sane way.

Record labels are evil. So why is she blaming the government and the "military -industrial complex"? Surely she should be trying to get the government to investigate the record label contracts? I'm amazed the IRS hasn't started to ask some serious questions, since the labels hide profit from the artists the IRS must be losing out big time.

As for the rest of the article...

OK, please, tell me what laws you would change, how you would restructure government to improve things from "The System".

I'm not saying what we have is perfect. You want to smoke weed while getting blown by a hooker, you've broken 2 laws that are no-one's business but your own. I'd like to change that.

But try living in 15th century Spain and being an aetheist or a Protestant Christian, or being a homosexual in 19th century England, or a Jew in 1930s Germany or an aborigine in 19th century Australia or black in South Africa until 25 years ago or Inca in the 16th Century. See how much justice you get when you don't like proclamation of a king, how your appeals go based on laws or a constitution when the monarch is both.

cookiefleck: Once again, I love you, but not all pedophiles are priests and doing that seems to be a douche move. There are many men and women of all denominations that are perverted peophiles.


True. And people who aren't of any religion that are pedophiles.
However, it was a big deal in the Catholic Church because they knew about it, kept silent about the problem, and instead of reporting those priests to the authorities for having committed crimes, the Church moved the priests to different parishes, which in some cases led to more children being victimized.

I'm not saying that pedophile clergy is a purely Catholic phenomenon or that it was it was somehow institutional, only that as an institution, the Catholic Church failed in their duty to protect children from harm and did not report their priests to the proper authorities.

People like Lauryn Hill and Sinead O'Connor (both of whom, I admit, are probably mentally unstable) were right to bring more attention to this issue.

If it hadn't have been publicized, the Church might not have changed their policies.

/And I love you, too!
