Joni Mitchell Is NOT In a Coma - Read the Official Statement

Joni Mitchell is not in a coma, despite a report earlier today that said she was unresponsive.

The 71-year-old singer’s reps released a statement on her website after the false rumors spread.

“Contrary to rumors circulating on the Internet today, Joni is not in a coma. Joni is still in the hospital – but she comprehends, she’s alert, and she has her full senses,” the statement read. “A full recovery is expected. The document obtained by a certain media outlet simply gives her longtime friend Leslie Morris the authority – in the absence of 24-hour doctor care – to make care decisions for Joni once she leaves the hospital. As we all know, Joni is a strong-willed woman and is nowhere near giving up the fight. Please continue to keep Joni in your thoughts.”

We’re glad to hear that she is doing better!
