Joni Mitchell remains in the hospital and is "resting comfortably," according to an update on JoniMitchell.com. CBC News reported that the singer suffered a "minor medical emergency" when she was found unconscious March 31 in her Los Angeles home and rushed to the hospital. It's still unclear what caused her to become unconscious.
"Joni remains under observation in the hospital and is resting comfortably," Mitchell's site states. "We are encouraged by her progress and she continues to improve and get stronger each day."

The 71-year-old singer-songwriter has openly spoken about her rare skin condition, called Morgellons disease, which prevents her from touring.
"You have two options," Mitchell told Rolling Stone in 1979. "You can stay the same and protect the formula that gave you your initial success. They're going to crucify you for staying the same. If you change, they're going to crucify you for changing. But staying the same is boring. And change is interesting. So of the two options. I'd rather be crucified for changing."
