According to TMZ, Prince Rogers Nelson is either laid up in a hospital bed in a bad, bad way, or he’s lounging on a purple velvet settee as one of his minions gently feeds him grapes dipped in hummingbird juice as another minion delicately fans him with a peacock feather.
But what TMZ does know for sure is that Jehovah’s Sexiest Witness was on a private plane early this morning when he had some kind of medical issue. It was apparently so serious that his plane had to make an emergency landing at Quad City International Airport in Moline, Illinois at around 1am. An ambulance picked up the glitter-dusted dandelion and took him to a nearby hospital. TMZ’s sources are not on the same page about how Prince is doing. One says that he’s still in the hospital and is “not doing well.” The other source says that he’s fine and was already released.
Prince performed last night in Atlanta, GA. Gossip Cop says that his Atlanta show was supposed to happen last week, but he pushed it to last night after he got hit with the flu.
Now, whenever my ass feels a little sick, I just take in Prince’s stunningly perfect passport picture and I pucker until I’m feeling right again. That probably won’t work on Prince, but doctors may not have to try it, because he (or whoever runs his Twatter) just tweeted this from his lair in Minnesota:

I guess that means he’s okay? But just in case, we should still rehearse forming into a prayer
circle Love Symbol. UPDATE: Okay, there’s no need to rehearse that prayer Love Symbol anymore. Prince’s rep says that he’s still dealing with the flu and he felt like shit on the plane. So they landed and he went to the hospital. He was treated and 3 hours later, he was back on his private plane headed for home.
