If you were to guess what sort of emergency situation might put John Mayer into the hospital, you might say it could have something to do with accidentally drinking a bottle of cologne, or a strong burning sensation during urination. But this time, John’s appendix pulled a fast one on him, and he was forced into emergency surgery.
A rep for John tells TMZ that he was rushed to the hospital early this morning in New Orleans. He underwent appendectomy surgery. John is currently on tour with Dead & Company. They had a show scheduled tonight in New Orleans.
Dead & Company released a statement concerning John’s sudden exit, saying that the show planned for this evening is postponed and that people can get a refund if they want to. But they didn’t say how John is doing. Or whether they sent something nice to the hospital on behalf of the band. Like a stuffed Grateful Dead bear wrapped in a tie-dye scarf that says “Get Groovy Soon, Man.” Although Dead & Company founder Bob Weir did wish John a speedy recovery.

Waking up in the middle of the night to the kind of awful pains that land you in the ER is no joke. It’s such a shitty situation. You’re confused and scared, and nothing the doctor says makes any sense. I can only imagine how terrified a half-asleep John Mayer was when he heard they were going to have to remove his appendix. “Oh god, not my dick!!! Anything but that! I use that organ the most! Wait – did you say appendix? Phew. That’s still bad, but…not as bad.”
While wearing one of Hedda Lettuce’s old wigs as a Las Vegas Statue of Liberty on her Halloween episode today, Wendy Williams lost control of her words, her eyes widened like mine did whenever I got apple slices instead of candy during trick or treating times and she passed the fuck out on live television. No, Wendy was not doing performance art commentary on the Statue of Liberty’s reaction to what the Jabba the Trump administration is doing to this country. Wendy had a “man down, code 10 situation” (copyright: the legendary Frankie Lyons). Continue reading
I really should’ve saved this story for Monday, because “Heather Locklear drove her car into a ditch” is everyone’s Monday morning metaphor.
E! News host Maria Menounos tells People that in February, she knew something was wrong with her health when she started getting headaches and lightheaded on set. Now, getting headaches is a symptom of working with Ryan Seacrest, but what was happening to Maria was much more serious and scary. After she had trouble reading the teleprompter and started slurring her words, she had an MRI and learned that a golf-ball-size meningioma brain tumor was pushing against her facial nerves and fucking with her.
“Bitch, the fuck did you do to your hair?” – Joe Perry, who even while dealing with the sicks, can’t help but wonder why Johnny Depp’s hair now looks like a taxidermy platypus.
Last month, Meat Loaf ended up in a hospital bed after he collapsed while yodeling during a show in Edmonton. And last night, Joe Perry of Aerosmith collapsed after leaving the stage during a Hollywood Vampires show in Coney Island. What is happening to our rock legends? They’re all collapsing! QUICK! Everyone form a prayer circle and line mattresses around Vixen. Hey, they’re rock legends to me, okay?
Page Six says that during the show at the Ford Amphitheater, 65-year-old Joe wasn’t feeling well at all and at one point, he went to the back of the stage where he sat on the drum kit. Joe tried to keep playing, but realized that something wasn’t right and he went backstage where he reportedly passed out.
Well, this is shitty. Obviously for the person it happened to, but it’s also a little shitty for the audience as well. Nobody should be denied the raw operatic power ballad emotion of the legendary Meat Loaf.
TMZ says that 68-year-old Meat Loaf collapsed on stage at a show in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada last night. It all happened during an encore performance of “I’d Do Anything For Love.” Meat Loaf just sort of lays his mic stand down (always such a goddamn gentleman, that Meat Loaf), and rolls onto the floor. A bunch of musicians and roadies then rush to his side. And as you can see from the video below, it was a really awful, crappy moment for everyone involved.
