Lauryn Hill probably still has a few bills to pay — which is why it’s nice the judge in her tax-evasion case is letting her take a break from home detention to go on a concert tour in November and December. AP reports that the eccentric R&B starjust released from a federal pen in Connecticut after serving three months — got a waiver to return to work temporarily. She got the wheels of commerce moving again this week, touting a new song, “Consumerism,” on her Web site as “a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently.”
