45. Lauryn Hill
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 she’d be taking more time off for the birth of her sixth child. Now the hapless star is facing three years in prison for failing to file federal income tax returns between 2005 and 2007. Sentencing is in November.—Jeff Royer
