The Website of Joni Mitchell Counters Reports on Severity of Illness

The official website of Joni Mitchell has partially countered a TMZ report earlier today that the singer was in a coma and unresponsive.

According to Mitchell's representatives, Joni is still in the hospital but is alert and has her full senses. They added that a full recovery is expected.

The following is the official statement:
Apr 28: Update on Joni's health

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. 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.
