Lauryn Hill Attempts To Explain Anti-Gay Lyrics In New “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” Song




As Lauryn Hill gears up for her upcoming album, the Miseducation singer is being accused of incorporating anti-gay lyrics into her latest song “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)..

In “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix),” the 38-year-old activist sings about the perils of society.

In addition to making references about psychological massacre and superficial vanity, Hill’s songs seem to include anti-gay statements, slamming ”drag queens,” “girl men” and ”social transvestism.

BET reporter, Monica Miller reports:

Whether or not Hill is merely using these comments as examples of the smokescreens and sleight-of-hands that pervade this “Neurotic Society” is unclear. Beyond intention, these sorts of statements suggest that society is in a shambles because it’s been taking too many cues from the LGBTQ community, acting like “girl men,” “drag queens” and “transvestites.” Is her beef with oppressive society or is her issue with people who don’t abide by a traditional family structure? Hill raps about “drag queens” after naming “greedy men and pride fiends.” She also mentions “social transvestism” and “subliminal dressed up as piety.”

Hill offers her thoughts in a May 6 post on her website:

“I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there,” she wrote about dropping her new single with Sony. “In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!”
