Lil Kim: I wasn't late for Lovebox

Lil Kim has apologised for her cancelled performance at London's Lovebox festival.

The Can't Hold Us Down rapper, whose real name is Kimberly Jones, had been due to give her only UK festival performance of 2013 on the festival's third and final day on July 21, but her appearance was cancelled 10 minutes before she was due on stage.

Festival organisers Mama Group claimed the singer arrived late. Their statement said: "Lil Kim did not turn up to her set on time. The festival had no other option but to maintain the scheduled running order to ensure the other main stage acts were not disrupted."

But Lil Kim's publicist Lizzie Grubman insisted she was on time for the show, tweeting: "NEWS ALERT: Due to circumstances that were out of Kim's control, her performance at #LoveBox was cancelled. Kim was on-site and on time for her performance and apologises to all of her fans for the inconvenience."

Goldfrapp, Hurts, Kelis and Lianne La Havas were among the artists who performed on the closing day of the Lovebox festival, which took place at Victoria Park in east London. Plan B and D'Angelo headlined on Saturday, with Azealia Banks and Jurassic 5 playing on the opening night.

You can communicate effectively about controversial topics like religion, politics and education. When you talk, people listen. Take this opportunity to lobby for changes to an outmoded institution. Making resources more readily available to the public will be a great use of your time. You're tired of seeing only the most privileged members of the community thrive. Promoting a more democratic approach will cause your stature to rise. Don't be surprised if a group asks you to run for office.More
