Franklin Soults of the Cleveland Free Times gave his thoughts on the Lauryn Hill ‘MTV Unplugged 2.0’ effort, which has many questioning Hill’s mental health, and hasn’t exactly been getting rave reviews.

As she explains again and again in her songs and monologues, being a star is a tremendous burden that can stifle creativity and hamper personal growth. In fact, it’s hard to imagine anything more vacuous than the trite image of sexy success that average pop stars are expected to live by. More power to Hill for rebelling against it.” The full story at bostonphoenix.com has since been removed.
