To pay taxes, Lauryn Hill signs with Sony

– Lauryn Hill says she has signed with Sony to pay her overdue taxes.

Hill pleaded guilty last year to not paying federal taxes on $1.8 million earned from 2005 to 2007.

The 37-year-old posted on her Tumblr blog late Thursday that she “signed a new record deal, and that I did this to pay taxes.”

The total Hill owes is in dispute, but it is around $1 million. Her next sentencing date in New Jersey is May 6.

Hill also says she’s working on new music. She hasn’t released much music since her 1998 solo debut, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.”

It has sold more than 10 million albums and won five Grammy Awards.

Hill writes that she’s not only signing with Sony because of her legal woes, but also because she needs to express her creativity.
