They say Cowboys are rough and tumble and Country star Granger Smith proves that statement to be very true. The singer was performing in New Jersey on Friday when he fell off the stage and landed on metal barricade. Instead of waiting for assistance, he got up, made a joke and kept on singing.
After the show, he was taken to the hospital where he was diagnosed with two broken and separated ribs and a punctured, partially collapsed lung.
Let’s hope he is back on the road again in no time, although it sounds like nothing can keep him down for long.
Tone Loc was performing with the I Love the ’90s Tour in Sioux City when the audience was given quite a scare. The rapper was singing his hit Wild Thing and dancing with several audience members on the stage when it seemed like something was wrong. His people came to hold him up as he was starting to faint and rushed him back stage.
You know the saying, the show must go on? It did for him because after a short while he returned to the stage like a Funky Cold Medina.
How is he doing today? His friend and tourmate Vanilla Ice Tweeted this update, “Tone Loc is fine and doing great. Thanks for you guys concern. He got lightheaded and dizzy, Dehydrated. See you tonight. #ILoveThe90sTour” Thankfully he is OK and going on with the tour.
It has not been a good year for musicians on stage in June Meat Loaf collapsed on stage, in July Joe Perry nearly did before walking off the stage to do it, in August Smash Mouth frontman Steve Harwell did it, in September Eddie Montgomery did the same and finally last week Kanye West walked off the stage after an outburst and was hospitalized two days after that. In fact, according to several sources he is still there with his wife by his side.
Let’s hope that 2017 is better to musicians than 2016 was. What a year it has been for music, so many greats passed away like David Bowie, Prince, Merle Haggard and Leonard Cohen just to name a few.
It has been a year of ups and downs for Michael Buble. It started off with the birth of his second son, followed by surgery on his vocal cords in May, the release of a new album last month and now his 3 year old son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer. The singer released the below statement on Facebook.
“We are devastated about the recent cancer diagnosis of our oldest son Noah who is currently undergoing treatment in the US. We have always been very vocal about the importance of family and the love we have for our children. Luisana and I have put our careers on hold in order to devote all our time and attention to helping Noah get well. At this difficult time, we ask only for your prayers and respect for our privacy. We have a long journey in front of us and hope that with the support of family, friends and fans around the world, we will win this battle, God willing.”
No parent should be going through what they are going through and hopefully he will be cancer free in no time.
Ben Stiller plays a funny man on the big screen, but he got real serious today on The Howard Stern Show when he told the Shock Jock that he was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer two years ago.
He not only talked about it on the radio show, he blogged about his diagnosis and treatment. He started out his post by saying, “So, yeah, it’s cancer.” Then he reveals he was diagnosed on Friday the 13th of June in 2014 and three months later on September 17, 2014 he heard he the words, “cancer free.” The actor had his prostate removed with all of the cancer and he remains free of cancer 2 years later.
He is coming forward to tell men to get the their PSA levels checked even before the mandatory age of 50 because he was only 48 when he was given the scary news. All a man has to do is take a blood test. It is so simple and it can save your life.
It saved his life and it saved my father’s life. Men do it. Do it today!
Two weeks ago, Shannen Doherty shared photos of herself gradually shaving her head and now she has revealed to Entertainment Tonight why she did it. Sadly, her cancer has spread. She said, “I had breast cancer that spread to the lymph nodes, and from one of my surgeries we discovered that some of the cancer cells might have actually gone out of the lymph nodes.”
Due to the cancer spreading, she has been put on Chemo. She explained, “After my second treatment, my hair was really matted, like in dreadlocks. And I went to try and brush it out, and it just fell out…I just remember holding onto huge clumps of my hair in my hands, and just running to my mom crying, like, ‘My hair, my hair, my hair, my hair.'” She grabbed a pair of scissors to cut it off, but her mom put it into a ponytail and chopped that off. She liked the Bob, but the hair was still falling out. At that point she decided to shave it all off, but did it in steps.
Her husband, Kurt Iswarienko, has been helping her deal with the ill effects of Chemo and being her support system as she battles this disease. A battle that cost her a breast and her hair, but hopefully not her life.
After she finishes the Chemo, she will go through Radiation. Hopefully, together all of those treatments will leave her cancer-free. If there is one thing we know about Shannen, she is a fighter! Fight Shannen, fight!
