-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.
