31-year-old singer checked into a Las Vegas hospital on Monday morning after The Billboard Music Awards, for exhaustion and jet lag. Yesterday, he got the all-clear from his docs.
His rep said,
“Ray J has been released from the hospital in Las Vegas and is back home in Los Angeles following an extensive battery of tests to make sure that he did not have a blood clot in his lungs which is potentially a deadly condition that can occur following a long haul plane flight.”
Clotting isn’t exhaustion, thankfully. All right, Ray J. You’re back in the headlines- at least it isn’t for a sex video.
Katy Perry not only picked up the Spotlight Award for matching Michael Jackson’s record of five No. 1 hits on a single album, but she also debuted her new song “Wide Awake” live on the Billboard stage.
The song was written for her upcoming 3D movie, “Katy Perry: Part of Me”. “I’m wide awake. I was in the dark, I was falling hard with an open heart. How did I read the stars so wrong. I was dreaming for so long. I wish I knew then what I know now. I wouldn’t dive in, I wouldn’t bow down,” she sings about her divorce from comedian Russell Brand.
“Not losing any sleep, I picked up every piece and landed on my feet. Need nothing to complete myself. I am born again, outta the lion’s den. I don’t have to pretend. The story’s over now, the end.”
But is anyone surprised? Glad to see some powerful female artists at the top of their game!
Adele has been nominated in 18 categories: Top Female Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, Top Artist and more. And of course, hit single “Rolling in the Deep” is up for awards in seven categories. Rihanna is at her heels, nominated for 13 nominations at the awards, while Lady Gaga garnered 10 nominations.
Those are the big lady nominees, but also up for awards are Lil’ Wayne in 10 categories and LMFAO in 17 categories. Not bad, gentlemen- but I have a feeling these ladies will steal the show!
