The singer — who owes somewhere around $1 million in taxes, civil penalties, and interest for the years 2005 to 2007 — was given a two-week extension at her sentencing hearing yesterday. Hill’s lawyer says she’ll have a loan by the May 6 deadline; she faces between 24 to 36 months if not. Meanwhile, Hill is still posting Tumblr updates about the saga. (She is not squatting, despite what you’ve heard.)
