Attorney Nathan Hochman says Hill has been permitted to work during the last six weeks of this year before finishing the balance of her three-month home detention. Hill pleaded guilty last year to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.5 million earned from 2005 to 2007. The winner of multiple Grammys and former member of the Fugees was sentenced in July to three months in prison and three months of home detention. She lives in South Orange, N.J.
Grimes, who said that she is still "refining" the rest of her list, "requires that everything is conducted in as green and eco-friendly a manner as possible backstage."

The former leaders of the "Bike the Bridge" tour say they've turned to Tour de Troit to plan Sunday's international cycling event. The 20-mile international ride starts at southwest Detroit's Clark Park, crosses the bridge to Windsor, Ontario, and heads back to Michigan. Registration for this year's ride is closed because the 150-rider limit has been reached.
Yellowstone visitor says her tour group was locked inside park hotel during slimdown
The group -- roughly 40 senior citizens from around the world -- was allowed to return to the Old Faithful Inn to spend a second night at the hotel, but some with limited English skills thought they were under arrest, she said. Vaillancourt said the guards looked like armed "Hulk Hogans" who told group members they couldnt leave the hotel and that some of the Asians guests said, Oh my God, are we under arrest? The federal government owns the inn but it is run by private contractor Xanterra Parks & Resorts, said Tom Mesereau, who handles public relations for the company. He also said inn staff was not aware of anyone being held inside under armed guard. A recorded message on the Yellowstone National Park phone line said officials could not be reached because they had been furloughed in the slimdown. Vaillancourt told the newspaper the two-and-a-half hour ride leaving Yellowstone wasnt much better because tour members couldnt make a scheduled comfort stop at a dude ranch because the owner was told he would have his license revoked for accommodating the group.
