Joni Mitchell Hospitalized

Joni Mitchell was hospitalized yesterday after being found unconscious in her Los Angeles home. According to a statement on her website, she regained consciousness in the ambulance on the way to the hospital and, as of last night, was “currently in intensive care undergoing tests and is awake and in good spirits.” It’s unclear what the cause of the incident was. Mitchell told Billboard in an interview last year that she was diagnosed with a rare skin condition called Morgellons Disease, which prevents her from singing or going on tour. The statement on her website promises an update when there is new information, and encourages everyone to “light a candle and sing a song, let’s all send good wishes her way.”
