    Grammy-winning singer/rapper Lauryn Hill has been sentenced to three months in prison for failing to pay her taxes, which amounted to about $1 million in earnings.

    She was also sentenced to three additional months of home confinement.

    According to the Associated Press:

    The 37-year-old South Orange resident pleaded guilty last year in the case.

    During a forceful statement to the judge, Hill explained she had always meant to eventually pay the taxes but was unable to during a period of time when she dropped out of the music business.

    Before the sentencing, her attorney had said Hill had paid more than $970,000 to satisfy the state and federal tax liabilities.

    It is unclear where she will spend her time behind bars.
