by Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill is as notorious for her beauty as she is for her musical talent.
Her dread-locked look became emblematic of her spiritual and political outlook.
She now renounces her 1990s fashion statements, saying she did not understand just how heavily pigeonholed her appearance would make her.
This image of Lauryn Hill was so iconic for a while in the late 90s that her face adorned a designer watch, among other things.
Gone are the famous dreadlocks.
Although Rohan Marley—yes, Bob’s son—is the father of five of her children, Hill announced in 2011 that he is not the father of her sixth. Both say they have had a loving (if complicated) relationship over the years.
Hill makes a public appearance with no makeup (Gasp!) with her oldest son and daughter in tow.
