On April 9, 2013, Rivera went public with her relationship with hip-hop artist Big Sean; the couple attended the premiere of 42 walking hand-in-hand and posing for photos together. 

 

Rivera noted in an interview with Latina magazine that she was raised a devout Christian but is very private about it, noting the conflict that can result from revealing such information. “It’s hard and sort of sad that you do feel the need to tread lightly when you say, ‘Yes I do go to church, and yes I do read the Bible, because once you do that, people will be like, ‘Why are her boobs out? Why is her midriff showing?

Why is she playing a lesbian?’ I don’t wanna deal with that stuff, so I’ve never really discussed it, it’s very personal.” According to, Wikipedia.

According to AP/9 News,  Singer Lauryn Hill has been charged with failing to file income tax returns for several years.

Hill earned more than $US1.6 million during 2005, 2006 and 2007, the three years she allegedly failed to file returns, the US Attorney’s office in New Jersey said on Thursday.

Hill’s primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries, prosecutors said.

She also owns and operates four corporations: Creations Music, Inc, Boogie Tours, Inc, L H Productions 2001, Inc and Studio 22, Inc, according to court papers.

The 37-year-old Hill got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

The album, praised by critics for its incisive lyrics and synthesis of rap and soul, sold eight million copies.

She then largely disappeared from public view to raise her six children, five of whom she had with Rohan Marley, the son of famed reggae singer Bob Marley.

Hill lives in South Orange, a suburb just west of Newark, New Jersey, and had attended Columbia High School in Maplewood.

Hill is scheduled to appear in court on June 29.

Rep says Pac’s mom was thrilled with hologram likeness of the rap icon at the music festival.

 

 

A representative for Tupac’s mom, Afeni Shakur, shared her reaction to her son’s surprise appearance at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival last night (April 15). According to TMZ, reps said that Afeni was excited to see her son perform on stage.

 
In case you missed it, concertgoers in attendance last night at Dr. Dre’s closing set at the Coachella music festival were treated to a barrage of special surprise guests including Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and most notably Tupac, in the form of a hologram.

 
Although Afeni wasn’t at the show, she watched the surprise unfold live on the Internet and was apparently in on the secret. Dre reportedly called and asked for her permission to do the hologram in exchange for a generous donation to the Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation.

 
Although it was initially rumored that Nate Dogg would appear on the hologram, he was pulled from the show at the last minute.

 
Coachella continues (with the same set of acts) next week in Indio, California.
