Well my parents said that I would go deaf listening to Sugar Ray loud on the radio (I had terrible taste, but like “Fly” is a bop and so is “Every Morning”–fight me) when I was a kid…
Mark McGrath spoke with The Daily Mail and revealed to them that years of performing live have caught up to him, or specifically his hearing. Mark says he can’t hear shit.
In non-celebrity news, but highly in the realm of WTF, the Governor of Kentucky, Matt Bevin, decided he would take his parenting skills all the way left. We currently live in a world where people like Jenny McCarthy and Kristin Cavallari are known as opinion leaders on vaccinations despite having zero medical (or rational) expertise. And you know who loves this? Matt Bevin. He supports parents not vaccinating his kids, and it looks like he’s not into vaccinating his kids either, because he revealed he forced all nine of his kids to purposely contract chickenpox.
In The-American-Healthcare-System-Sure-Works-Well-For-Everybody news: rapper T-Pain revealed on Instagram his brother’s hospital bill and it’s a doozy.
Without much context or full background story, T-Pain posted a picture of a bill to his Instagram and let his followers know that American healthcare is the best in the world and makes total sense and is affordable for everyone. JK, lol, where? Which state? No: he revealed to his followers that his brother had been in two different hospitals over the course of “a month and some change” and during his time getting–I’m assuming–much-needed medical care, he racked up a bill of over $1.4 million dollars.
Looks like all of those friends of Wendy Williams who were worried about her health have more to think about. Mieka reported earlier this week that people in Wendy’s orbit are concerned for her health. She’s fainted on live TV, she took three weeks off, people say she’s been “checked out”, she fractured her arm, and she’s sitting too much on TV. Well, add another issue to Wendy’s growing list, because people were noticing that on Wendy’s show yesterday she was slurring her words like I do on my birthday.
Wendy Williams fractured her arm and cancelled an episode of The Wendy Williams Show at the last minute. Now her friends are worried there’s something more going on with her health than she’s letting on. They say she can barely stand and has “totally checked out”. A source told Radar that Wendy “has been exhibiting strange behavior ‘for weeks’”. Wendy, however, insists that everything’s fine. This is not Wendy’s first health crisis either. Until last year when she had her Halloween, on-air “faintation”, (which she chalked up to menopause), Wendy had never missed a day of work. After that scary (and frankly, iconic) episode, she finally took a 3-week break to take care of her health, and revealed that she was suffering from hyperthyroidism and Graves’ disease.
Kevin Smith almost died! He tweeted a shot of himself from the hospital bed saying he narrowly avoided death after having a massive “Widow-Maker” heart attack.
