Singer Joni Mitchell hospitalized in Los Angeles
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Joni Mitchell has been hospitalized in Los Angeles.
Mitchell’s website and Twitter account reported Tuesday night that she was in the hospital, but gave no details on her condition.
Los Angeles fire officials say paramedics answered an afternoon emergency call in Bel Air, where Mitchell lives, and took a patient to the hospital. But they could not verify her identity.
The 71-year-old singer-songwriter told Billboard magazine in December that she has a rare skin condition, Morgellons disease, which prevents her from performing. Still, she released a career-spanning four-disc box set last year and appeared at Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party in February.
Mitchell has received eight Grammy Awards, including a lifetime achievement award in 2002. She was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1997.
