Lauryn Hill has made an official statement today following a failed performance in Atlanta over the weekend.

Hill’s sound was cutoff after she showed up two hours late for a show the Chastain Park Amphitheatre.

Hill’s statement, which was created as an open letter to fans, was posted earlier this morning via Facebook.

According to her post, the singer writes that she is excessively late mainly because of her “artistic process.”

The former Fugees singer writes:

“Because I care so deeply about the artistic process, I scrutinize, have perfectionist tendencies, and want space made for spontaneity, which is not an easy process, with the many moving parts on the road. Some days we are more successful than others re time. However, the vitality that is infused into the performances is always appreciated by the audiences, who may not know exactly what it took to accomplish.”
