Lauryn Hill seemed set on appearing somewhere during New York Fashion Week — but there were some last minute changes to her schedule, Page Six has learned.
The ’90s hip hop icon was listed as the performer for a fashion event this week, but in a rather unstylish move, mysteriously backed out just days before, we hear.
Turns out, she may have just gotten a better offer?
The “Ready or Not” singer turned up as the surprise performer for Soho House’s 20th anniversary, shocking delighted partygoers as she took the stage in front of the rooftop pool on Tuesday.
We hear the performance came together at the last minute, with the exclusive spot confirming her just a few days before the party.
Reps for Hill however, explained that the other event “announced the show before production and other details were finalized or having a signed deal in place. So Ms. Hill was never confirmed to be a part of the event. Her agents were in talks with the organizers but nothing came to fruition.”
Hill, who is famous for taking the stage late, was pretty much on time, running just 15 minutes behind her scheduled start, we hear.
Hill — who will reunite with the Fugees for a much-anticipated tour for her 25-year-old album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” in October — put a small fan by her feet to help combat sweltering, 80-degree heat, and played the show in a stylish, heavy-looking, mirrored blazer.
She played hits like “Killing Me Softly” and “Doo Wop (That Thing)” to an amped up crowd, but no one seemed more excited than the staff.
“I love my job,” one worker was heard saying as they danced. “I can’t believe I get paid to watch Lauryn Hill!”
Soho House, which originated in London, has clubs around the world.
Madonna, Miley Cryus, Tom Cruise, Kim Kardashian, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Leonardo DiCaprio, Nicole Kidman and more A-listers have all been seen at the hotspot which costs $2,667 a year.
Just this week, Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly were photographed after eating at the hotel.
Guests for the anniversary bash got invites in the form of a members card for “Annabelle Bronstein” — the pseudonym Kim Cattrall’s character, Samantha Jones, gave to sneak into the spot on a Season 6 episode of “Sex and the City.”
The name also popped up during Cattrall’s recent cameo on the HBO spinoff “And Just Like That.”
