I’m sure you’ve heard that Justin Bieber had collapsed on stage last night in London. Poor him, probably overworking himself (it was his third show in a row at the O2 arena) and is under a lot of stress especially with what the media’s been saying lately. However, being so dedicated to the fans, he decided to pull through and finish the rest of his concert before rushing to the hospital.
However, all is fine, and he’s better now. He tweeted his progress while thanking the fans and also posted a shirtless picture on Instagram, with the caption: “Gettin better listening to Janice Joplin“. Never have I ever been so jealous of a hospital bed before.
But wait – what? I did not know that Justin Bieber listened to Janice Joplin. Who would’ve thought? I would’ve expected him to listen to something around his genre, maybe some Michael Jackson, or even old school NKOTB. But I wouldn’t blame him, Janice Joplin’s music does contain some kind of magic in it. Maybe it’s the reason that he healed so quickly? All jokes aside, I’m really glad that Justin’s feeling better now. He has his fourth show in the O2 Arena tonight, so let’s hope nothing drastic happens. We wouldn’t want you to collapse again. But seriously Justin, take a break sometime.
If not for your health, maybe your safety. Those paps haven’t been so kind to you lately. Read more…

Diddy was rushed to the hospital last night during a party at the Playboy mansion, due to an extreme migraine. He hosted the party for Hugh Hefner but his entourage became so concerned that they drove him to the UCLA emergency room.
Apparently the headache had nothing to do with the party and Diddy was a good sport about it. Later he tweeted: “This is actually one of the HOTTEST parties I’ve ever thrown!! Right now at the Playboy Mansion!!!! Let’s goooooooo!!!!” He tweeted later on: “Best grammy party I ever threw!!!! Thanks for comin out yall.”

“We’re trying to be as festive as possible under the circumstances but please keep Nick in your thoughts because this is very painful,” Mariah writes. “They tried to kick me out of the hospital but here I am pon de bed with Mr. C.”
There is proof for you. Mariah is a very dedicated wife who is at her husband’s side when he is in need. Who would have thought?

Selena Gomez has apparently been suffering from malnourishment and exhaustion, reports CTV.
The singer and actress, who lately has been ill and receiving tremendous support from fans, was hospitalized on Friday when she fell ill with nausea and a severe headaches.
“I was very malnourished. I was dehydrated and very low on iron and exhausted. So, I just gotta take care of myself,” Gomez says.
The 18-year-old has missed promotions of her new film ‘Monte Carlo’ in Santa Monica, California, and although disappointed, she is ready to head back to work.
“I’m doing great, much better. I was very disappointed I couldn’t be here, but I’m here now,” she tells Access Hollywood.
Gomez has been dating 17-year-old pop star Justin Bieber since the beginning of this year, and Bieber recently tweeted his support for the star, saying ”getwellselena.”
Glad she’s back on track and ready to go. She has to host the MMVAs in five days, so she needs to be in tip top shape!
Heather Mills has left a hospital after receiving treatment for a shoulder injury she sustained during a skiing accident in Austria, Access Hollywood reports.
Best known as Paul McCartney’s ex-wife, Mills crashed on the Moelltaler glacier Wednesday and was flown by helicopter to a hospital in the southern city of Lienz. She was diagnosed with a fractured right shoulder blade.
She is expected to make a full recovery and was released midmorning Thursday. Mills, who uses a prosthetic leg, recently bought a house in southern Austria and is training there for the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games..
Mills said she crashed into a plastic pole that had turned as hard as steel due to the cold.
“That’s skiing, you know,” Mills said. Uh, I’m pretty sure ramming into a pole isn’t part of the sport.
Mills, a former model, married ex-Beatle McCartney in 2002. They divorced in 2008.
This is nice and all that she’s recovering, but my question is: why was a woman with one leg skiing? Seriously – that spells a recipe for disaster. What if her leg popped off! She must be quite the athlete to be able to balance on her one leg – I can’t even ski with both my legs.
TMZ reports that Dr. Paul Nassif, husband of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Adrienne Maloof, was one of the two people who drove Charlie home from the hospital on Thursday.
Apparently the car ride was very casual, where they discussed “fun things.” Nobody brought up Charlie’s issues, and it was just a relaxing ride.
Wow Charlie, you are quite a guy! You have gotten to the point where you and your associates just accept a cocaine bender as a regular activity for you. Also good work on staying sober since Thursday.
Paramedics paid a visit to the Kardashian household this weekend after Kourtney’s son, Mason, suffered a very serious allergic reaction.
Radar Online is reporting that an ambulance paid a visit to the home of Kourtney Kardashian and and daddy Scott Disick around 10pm on Friday night. After a few minutes of treating Mason within their home, the 11 month old was strapped to a gurney and driven to the hospital for further care.
Sources say that Scott “was terrified,” while Kourtney kept her cool. “[She] Was far more in control of the situation,” an onlooker noted.
Mason is allegedly allergic to peanuts, a very common food allergy among babies and children.
You did the right thing, Kourtney! There shouldn’t be any messing around with allergies and babies. They could be fatal in kids that young!
Where are his handlers in all of this?!
Charlie Sheen has totally fallen off his rocker, according to Radar Online. Ever since the star was released from a New York hospital after being treated for his excessive cocaine use, his life has been a constant parade of hookers, coke and alcohol.
Sheen was held in the hospital for a psych evaluation after tweaking out in his room at the Plaza hotel, dropping several N-bombs while his hooker du jour, porn star Capri Anderson, cowered in the bathroom. He later flew home to LA, but it seems apparent that his habit has followed him there.
“It’s been a non-stop party of drugs and hookers since Charlie [arrived home in Los Angeles],” one source says. “He is completely out of control. No one can get through to him.”
In all fairness, who wouldn’t stumble into a death spiral after wasting away on season after season of Two and a Half Men?
Somebody get this man into rehab stat!
Radar Online is reporting that Dog the Bounty Hunter, AKA Duane Chapman, arrived at UCLA medical centre this past Saturday with extreme leg pain, a common indicator of a blood clot behind the knee. The injury was suspected to be a by-product of (we’re not kidding) Dog kicking in too many doors on the job.
Upon close medical examination, it was determined that Dog’s muscle separated from the bone and caused massive internal bleeding at the site. Naturally, the injury had been worsening with time and had come to be too excruciating to bear.
Ew! We’re pretty sure you shouldn’t wait a week when you’re in that much pain! If medical science has taught us anything, it’s that pain is the body’s way of saying “something isn’t right here.” So, Dog, when your knee became unbearably swollen this weekend, we’re pretty sure your body was trying to say something along the lines of “SWEET WRATH OF ZEUS, SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION BEFORE YOU DIE A TWISTED HORRIBLE DEATH.”
Thankfully, Dog was discharged after it was decided that he was not at risk for developing a clot. It’s probable that he will return to the hospital later this week to receive more treatment.
Let that be a lesson, kiddos! If you’re going to kick in doors for a living, respond accordingly when your kicking leg swells to the size of a small Eurasian nation.
TMZ is reporting that former ladywrestler Chyna was admitted to UCLA medical centre earlier today. Initially it was thought that she had alcohol poisoning, especially due to her complicated past with the substance, but it was later discovered that she overdosed on Benadryl.
Chyna took 4 to 5 times the suggested dosage of the allergy medicine to help her sleep last night. She woke up this morning unable to walk and with intense nausea.
It looks like the WWE star is going to be fine. She’s been put on an IV drip in the ER to rehydrate and will probably be released soon.
Chyna’s substance abuse problems came to light on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab, where she openly admitted to having a severe alcohol dependency. Hopefully that addiction hasn’t been transferred over to Benadryl! That stuff can’t be good for you in high doses.
Maybe try some Sleepy time tea next time, Chyna Doll?
A new biography is being written about pop princess Lady Gaga by Maureen Callahan titled “Poker Face: The Rise and Rise of Lady Gaga.” In the book, Gaga’s former tour manager David Ciemny claims Gaga has extremely dangerous dieting habits.
PopEater reports that in the book, Ciemny alleges that in 2009 alone, Gaga was hospitalized six times because of poor eating habits. Additionally the singer binged on junk food when not depriving herself of calories altogether.
In the book Wendy Starland is quoted as saying “The pressure on her to lose weight was very high.” Wendy help discover Stefani Germanotta before she changed her name to Lady Gaga.
Gary Coleman is currently in a Utah hospital on life support, reports ABC News.
Coleman has “slipped into a coma.” Gary suffered a intracranial hemorrhage from his fall on Wednesday.
“Anything they could say would be premature because they don’t know the full extent of his condition right now,” Randy Kester, Coleman’s lawyer, told The Associated Press.
Earlier in the day, Coleman’s wife, Shannon Price, released a brief statement to KUTV asking for support, saying: “Gary was taken to the hospital with a serious medical problem yesterday, we are asking for everyone’s prayers at this time. We hope those prayers are answered and that Gary will be able to recover and return home soon.”
Gary Coleman has been admitted into a Utah hospital, TMZ reports.
Coleman was apparently admitted yesterday after being transported to a local hospital at 12:50pm.
His brother-in-law tells TMZ that Coleman was injured after suffering a fall.
Coleman has a history of seizures, including one during a TV interview in February and another one in January while with a friend.
According to Bret’s rep, the singer was complaining about “numbness on the left side of his body, predominately his face and hands.”
TMZ reports that doctors performed numerous tests on Michaels, identifying that he had suffered “Transient Ischemic Attack” — more commonly referred to as a “warning stroke.”
Further examination showed that Michaels had a Patent Forum Ovale – which is essentially a hole in his heart. However it is believed to be “operable and treatable.”
What started as a headache for rocker Bret Michaels turned into something much more serious, PEOPLE reports.
Michaels was experiencing an excruciating headache Thursday night before he was rushed to an undisclosed hospital. According to a source close to the situation, it was there that doctors discovered he suffered a massive subarachnoid hemorrhage – bleeding at the base of his brain stem.
The 47-year-old singer is currently in critical condition.
“After several CAT scans, MRIs and an angiogram, [doctors] decided to keep Michaels in the ICU and are running several tests to determine the cause. [It] will be touch and go for the next few days while he is under intense observation,” the source says.
His reps confirm that the information is accurate and said, “We will have no additional information until further testing is done.”
Earlier this month Michaels was rushed into a San Antonio, Texas hospital for an emergency appendectomy. There is no word whether this hospital visit is related to his recent appendectomy or his diabetes.
After his appendectomy, the Poison front man remained in the hospital under his doctors’ care, before being transferred to a rehab facility specializing in diabetic patients.
He remained in good spirits while he was recovering and updated fans on his progress. He was also still in the running to win this season of NBC’s Celebrity Apprentice.
The Pennsylvania native wrote a note to his fans about the pain he experienced.
“They told me that if I had gone on stage like I wanted to, [my appendix] likely would have ruptured and I could have died. There is just no way around the fact that getting your appendix out HURTS. I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts.”
E! Online reports the pop diva was in Switzerland on her European tour when she was taken to the hospital. Rihanna was escorted to the Hirslanden Clinic with two members of her entourage.
No comment was made by Rihanna’s people why she took a visit to the hospital. A spokesperson for the clinic said “We do not know the details.”
Nevertheless it could not have been anything too serious. Last night she rocked the house in Lyos, France performing to a sold out crowd.
Conan O’Brien took an unexpected visit to a Vancouver, British Columbia hospital yesterday, reports TMZ.
Conan’s tour manager had to be taken to the hospital after showing “symptoms” (what kind of symptoms we don’t know).
Luckily the new TBS host was in a joking mood with the cameramen, and couldn’t help but comment about the free Canadian healthcare system. “I think they’re gonna take his American Express card … because we’re American.”
