28. Lauryn Hill
Stock Watch: Down. So close. It seemed like we were SO CLOSE to finally getting a follow-up to Hill’s first, best and only album, 1998’s “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.” She was finally emerging from that interminable hiatus with a patch of tour dates and festival appearances, including major gigs at Coachella and the New Orleans JazzFest. And then, with anticipation whipped to a fever pitch … Hill announced earlier this month that she’d be taking more time off for the birth of her sixth child.

Extracurricular Activities: Hill likes to spend her life raising her kids, and you can’t blame her for that. She has a few unfulfilled touring commitments this summer. After that, who knows when we’ll see her again? —Jeff Royer
