During an interview with HuffPost Live, David Crosby said that Joni Mitchell has suffered an aneurysm and, to his knowledge, has lost her ability to speak. “She took a terrible hit. She had an aneurysm, and nobody found her for a while,” Crosby said. “And she’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury.”

In May, Billboard reported that Mitchell had suffered an aneurysm, a report that conflicted with an update from her website indicating that she simply had a “minor medical emergency.” The last official statement from Mitchell, which also came from her website, stated that the singer is fully aware and in possession of her “full senses”

Crosby remains hopeful even though he hasn’t seen or spoken to Mitchell: “She’s probably the best of us — probably the greatest living singer-songwriter. … We’re all holding our breath and thinking a good thought, hoping that it’s going to turn out okay.” [Huffington Post]

Taylor Swift and Calvin Harris have replaced Beyonce and Jay Z, stealing their throne and crowning themselves as the richest celebrity couple. Forbes named Swift and Harris the world’s highest-paid celebrity couple in 2015. The two earned a combined $146 million, while Bey and Jay earned a paltry $110.5 million. The report indicates that Harris is the world’s “highest-paid DJ,” a phrase that induces both giggles and quizzical looks. [Us Weekly]

Rita Ora recently told British tabloid The Sun, that Chris Brown isn’t the terrible, no good person that everyone thinks he is. “[He’s] strong, powerful, and someone that is important to me personally and professionally,” Ora said while defending her collaboration with the terrible person. “He’s a good person with a good heart and a lovely family,” she added. Ora also alluded to the “discrimination” Brown has faced since beating a woman and being arrested multiple times: “the discrimination and all what people think? If you have a great song then no one cares.” Ora is right, there is no greater salvation for terrible people than a “great song” and a little bit of celebrity. [Just Jared]
