If you felt a sharp jab of pain in the part of heart that is reserved for the AVANT and the HAUTE, that’s because ARTIST and CREATIVE PERSON Yoko Ono was rushed to the hospital. Originally thought to be a stroke, it turned out to be less serious “flu-like symptoms” according to her spokesman, via Page Six.
It’s being reported that a call was made to 911 around 9pm Friday night from her Upper West Side apartment and the person calling said she had “slurred speech” and was “possibly having a stroke.” Soon after the call, she was rushed to Mount Sinai West hospital. Her son, hat enthusiast Sean Ono Lennon, tweeted:
Hey guys it was only rumors from press: was NOT a stroke, just dehydration/tired. She is FINE. Thank you everyone for your concern @yokoono

Although some would say “oh that’s creepy!” that she was rushed to the same hospital John Lennon passed away at after he was assassinated in 1980, I don’t. She’s lived in the damn Dakota, aka the Rosemary’s Baby building, since 1973 and Sinai West is the closest hospital. I’m happy she’s ok. I have a lot of friends that love her for her ART and MUSIC but I love her for her greatest achievement – breaking up The Beatles. Yes, I’m a Beatles hater. (Come at me!) Stay strong Yoko.
