LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — Folk singer Joni Mitchell was reportedly hospitalized in Los Angeles for an undisclosed condition.
Los Angeles fire officials said that paramedics responded to a 911 call at the Bel Air residence where Mitchell lives on Tuesday afternoon and transported a patient to the hospital, but for reasons of privacy could not disclose the name of the individual.
However, a post on Mitchell's website said: "Joni has been hospitalized. We are awaiting official word on her condition and will post it here as soon as we know."
The 71-year-old Canadian singer-songwriter no longer performs, telling Billboard in December that she suffered from a rare skin disease, but she attended Clive Davis' Grammy party in February.
Mitchell. a member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is one of the seminal figures of the California folk scene in the late 1960s. Her 1969 hit "Clouds" won Mitchell her first Grammy Award, one of seven she would win over the course of her career.
Although Mitchell announced her retirement in 2002, she released another album "Shine" in 2007, which won her a Grammy for Best Instrumental Performance. – Staff Writers
