Lauryn Hill got herself in a sticky situation with fans at a recent concert in Washington, D.C. - she made the audience wait for more than three hours because her manicure wasn't dry.
The reclusive former Fugees frontwoman made her return to the music scene earlier this year (10), and has been praised for a string of successful gigs, including a festival in Rwanda in July (10).
But the star lived up to her diva reputation after stalling her show in America's capital last week (31Aug10) because her nail varnish was still wet.
According to the Washington Post, the Doo Wop (That Thing) hitmaker then rushed through a 20-minute set and left the stage to a chorus of boos.
A representative for Hill says, "She's sorry she kept her fans waiting, but couldn't go out there looking busted (unattractive)!"
