Exhaustion? Dehydration? Hung over? Too many pills? Does it really matter what spin we put on this?

Ashlee Simpson Hospitalized in Japan.
Us Weekly is the first to report that singer Ashlee Simpson, 21, is currently in a Tokyo hospital after collapsing yesterday following an MTV Japan performance. The singer, whose album I Am Me, debuted at Number 1 last month, had just performed hthe album’s title track before the audience when she told the crowd she felt unwell, and said to them, ‘I love you guys.’ She then collapsed in an elevator at MTV Japan and was rushed by ambulance to an undisclosed hospital where she has remained. Her publicist, Rob Shuter, confirmed the hospitalization to Us, but no further details. The singer has been on a strenuous tour schedule supporting her critically-lauded comeback album. ‘She’s wanted to prove over and over to her fans that she can perform live after what happened on SNL last year,’ says one source. The singer’s performamce at the Radio Music Awards on Monday has been canceled, and her family is currently waiting for a diagnosis before deciding whether to fly to Japan, or have Simpson return to the States. One source says the likely diagnosis will be exhaustion.

    Ummm somone at US needs to do a little proof-reading before they post their story.

    The article says she’s hospitalized in Japan then the 2nd to last sentence says “her family is currently waiting for a diagnosis before deciding whether to fly to Japan, or have Simpson return to the States.”

    Duh did they mean to fly her to another island that makes up Japan?

    Sorry for the double post my company’s computers suck big time.

    chicakms:

    I think you misunderstood what you read. The article is stating that Ashley’s family, here in the U.S., is awaiting the diagnosis to determine whether or not they need to go to Japan to be with her or, if she’s stable enough, have her sent here to the U.S.

    Oh, and I guess her name is spelled “Ashlee” and not Ashley. Her parents suck for not spelling it right. :P

    I’m the first in line to bash the bottle blonds of Hollywood~ but I like Ashlee. She can actually sing- as opposed to her sister who warbles, shakes her ass, and now has lips the size of a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day float.

    Her CD is pretty damn good- it isn’t off the chart original- but damn near every song has a catchy hook and she wrote the shit herself.

    Now I feel like a total loser for trying to defend little miss thing! I just think it would suck to grow up in Jessica’s Louis Vuitton shadow– esp. when you are the one with the true talent…

    And her mama needs to stop shopping, get on a damn plane, and get her ass over there ASAP. You don’t leave your kid laid up in a hospital bed 6,000 miles away while you cruise Rodeo Drive…

    I cant believe she’s that popular. And yes, where is her mother?? Poor thing, all Joe cares about is how much his daughter’s are rack’n in to pay for his mansion and toys. He’s out golfing while his daughter’s fainting!

    I’m sorry but Ashlee has no talent other than than her abilities to be an obnoxious, waste of space ho. How can you be hostalized for exhaustion when you don’t work? And who the fuck in the real world ever gets the luxury of being hospitalized for exhaustion? What a celebrity crock of shit. I work my butt off and I’m not fainting in elevators.

    This has got creepy joe simpson and publicity stunt written all over it.

    Once again, SMroxx has hit the nail on the head.

    Exhaustion (n.):
    see RELAPSE
    see OVERDOSE
    see WITHDRAWAL

    Take your pick.

    I agree with SMroxx. I’m a single mother of two young active girls, wait tables, and run a household. I have yet to pass out from exhaustion!
    Claiming ‘exhaustion’ is a celeb excuse for overdosing, drunk, or some other chemical related condition!
