Sadly, pop star ailments are now officially a trend. Please send your get well cards to:
–Eminem (left), who announced he’s scrapping his European tour due to exhaustion and other medical issues.
–Madonna, who marked her 47th birthday with a horse-riding accident that resulted in three cracked ribs, a broken collarbone, and a broken hand. Said her colorful publicist Liz Rosenberg, ”I don’t know if she’s going to be hanging from a disco ball any time soon.”
–Billie Joe, whose voice problems have forced the postponement on doctor’s orders of two Green Day concerts this week.
–Edwyn Collins (”A Girl Like You”), who is, thankfully, canvalescing at home after six months of hospitalization following two brain hemorrhages.
