!! OMG, she’s finally on the comeback tip: Lauryn Hill !!

Last week a determined reporter from NPR managed to land an interview with the elusive Lauryn Hill following her appearance at the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, California.
Hill, who is touring a lot more now that her five kids are growing up, hinted at what everyone is waiting to hear: that she’s about to make her long-awaited return to the recording studio. When asked if she’ll ever release another album she told NPR, “I think it’s just time. I’m starting to get excited again.”
We’ll get ten times more excited when it actually happens, but in the meantime the NPR report is worth a listen thanks to the giddy blow-by-blow account of the reporter’s pursuit through Ms. Hill’s maze of handlers and publicists:

I was told by various people to not touch her, don’t look her in the eye; that instead of talking directly to you, she writes on a Post-It note and sticks it to your chest. I’ve also been told repeatedly not to call her “Lauryn” anything — she goes by Ms. Hill. This is the only rumor that turns out to be true, in my case. Because after her performance in Santa Rosa, when we ask Ms. Hill if we can ride with her back to the hotel and ask her some questions, she tells us to get in the car.

Listen to the interview here. See Lauryn Hill perform The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill in its entirety at the 2010 Rock the Bells festival. Tour dates after the jump.

!! OMG, She’s Back: Liz Phair issues surprise online album !!

After spending the last several years missing in action, Liz Phair just busted out and dropped an entire album onto the internet with pretty much no warning, no label, and no publicity. The album, title FUNSTYLE is super-weird and may be sort of a joke? Still, I’m excited– I haven’t listened to the whole thing yet, but as weird as it is, I’m guessing it’s the most interesting thing she’s done in a decade. Get it here.

Dolly Parton– Patron Saint of Sluts, Floozies and Tramps– has something to say about those who think Miley Cyrus is some kind of teen harlot:

“If you think I’m going to sit here and pass judgment on Miley, you’re wrong. I think she’s beautiful. I love her. She’s trying to grow up, you know, I remember when I was horny and young.”

<3 U Dolly! [Via Crushable]

!! OMG, Are You Itchy?: Bedbugs Invade Abercrombie !!

Hey you in your puka shell necklace and casually weathered cargo shorts! Yes you! Have you been noticing an itch in your undies lately? Perhaps some unsightly red welts on your body? No, it’s not crabs! It could be that your carefully selected gay fratwear has given you a case of the dreaded bedbugs!
You may have heard that the Soho branch ofAbercrombie & Fitch‘s trashy little corporate cousin Hollister was closed earlier this week for a bedbug infestation. And today the mothership has fallen: the South Street Seaport Abercrombie has also been taken over by the little buggers.
Could this be a case of corporate sabotage? Or maybe Abercrombie clothes are just plain nasty?! Either way, it seems clear that no matter how sexy the gay nudie catalog is, the cooties are not worth it!
