"The Devil is real. And he’s not a little red man with horns and a tail. He can be beautiful. ‘Cause he’s a fallen angel, and he used to be God’s favorite."

V.G. WHAT KIND OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ACTORS JUST STARTING OUT IN THEIR CAREER? 
A.B.: It’s the same with everything: You have to study your craft. Actresses make it look easy because that’s the way it should look—effortless. When a great actor does their job they’re leaving a piece of their soul in the room. It takes a little out of you, but that’s okay. Life will take a little out of you, love will take a little out of you. We’re talking about demonstrating the best and worst of the human experience.

Lauryn Hill turned Constitution Hall into a Block Party y’all! She may have started late but she did not disappoint!  She is definitely evolving as am artist, influenced heavily by reggae music. She took us on a journey, starting with new renditions of songs from the Miseducation of Lauryn Hill to the lovely acoustic vibe of her Unplugged album. She brought things to a standstill with her performance of Black Rage and ended the show with some from her days with the Fugees.  This performance was everything!!!  #HUHOMECOMING2014 #HUHC2014 #LaurynHill
