Over the years, Lauryn Hill has remained relatively low-key, gracing fans every so often with onstage performances and social media posts. Given her rare presence on social media, fans have been taking note of the very few times she does share and have noticed that many of her posts are tributes to lives lost. In response to the observation, the “Nothing Even Matters” singer explained that the RIP posts are simply a sign of the times.

“A lot of folks are leaving. I don’t post often so my responses may sometimes be delayed. In my most recent posts, it wasn’t my intention to be morbid, but this is a reflection of the times,” she wrote, adding her hopes for people to be more sensitive and less eager to criticize others.

“In response to some of the comments — I imagine a world where cynicism is replaced with more sensitivity and wisdom, where people are proactively invested in saving everyone from damage and that those who genuinely desire it, there’s a path of reconciliation, atonement and repair available for people who misstep, rather than only a firing squad,” Ms. Hill continued. “Every moment may not be a party. There are times to rejoice and also times to recognize someone’s passing. There are times to be critical and there are times to consider the humanity of people and offer condolences to the families and communities who are suffering loss.”

According to the Fugees singer, the world is going through a “major shift” but she claims that it is “necessary to bring things to a healthier place.”

Among the many posts on Hill’s page are heartfelt messages to personal friends and family members who passed away as well as tributes to DMX, Biz Markie, Virgil Abloh, Sidney Poitier, jazz musician James Mtumé and Bob Saget.
