The incomparable Lady Gaga was forced to cancel a concert in West Lafayette, Ind., at the last minute Thursday night after falling ill and being advised to rest.

The cancellation was announced after the two opening acts had already performed, disappointing a sold-out crowd at Purdue University's Elliott Hall of Music.

It was no joke, though. Lady Gaga became dizzy and was having trouble breathing an hour before the show - a result of exhaustion and dehydration, she said.

"Can't apologize enough for how sorry I am. I could hear my fans cheering from my dressing room. I begged everyone to let me go onstage," Gaga Tweeted.

"My stage has complicated mechanical elements, everyone was concerned I'd be in danger during the show, since I had passed out earlier. I am devastated."

Lady Gaga had to cancel a show. That's gotta be killing her.

Just to further clear things up, she stated: "I have performed with the flu, a cold, strep throat: I would never cancel a show just based on mere discomfort."

"I hope you can forgive me,. I love my little monsters more than anything, you are everything to me. I will make-up the performance on January 26."

It truly must have taken something to knock this dynamic performer out, and it had to eat away at her inside. She's like the Kevin Garnett of music.

However, Gaga will rally in time for today's appearance on Oprah, her rep tells E! News. It's a good thing, too - Winfrey is PUMPED about the interview.

She wrote on Twitter: "Just saw Avatar. WOWEE KAZOWEE!! Interviewing James Cameron tomorrow and LADY GAGA. Can't sleep. So excited!"

Well summated, O.

Stop us if you've heard this one before: Amy Winehouse collapsed yesterday.

The cause, as hilariously described by the singer's rep? Nervous exhaustion!

Wino is being treated at home for exhaustion after a chest infection "coupled with the stress of her recent arrest on suspicion of assault" both took their toll.

THG NOTE: Also taking their toll? Massive amounts of hard ass drugs.

A source close to the 26-year-old train wreck said that she is “soldiering on” to get her latest album completed (riiiiiight) despite not feeling well these days.

The star has been told to “keep low profile and fully recuperate” over the festive period. That means keeping Blake Fielder-Civil at least 100 yards away.

Amy’s recent arrest - for allegedly attacking a theatre manager at a performance of Cinderella in Milton Keynes on December 19 - has led to her being charged with assault - or in UK terms, "a public order offence and common assault."

She will appear in court to answer to the charges on January 20.

Madonna's "Sticky and Sweet" tour sure is getting a lot of attention as she barnstorms Eastern Europe. But perhaps not the kind she anticipated.

First, she was booed mercilessly in Bucharest, Romania, for comments she made mid-song about Gypsies, gays, and other "people who are different."

The crowd apparently did not care for such individuals.

Now, the Material Mom is making more headlines for a near-collapse on stage in Sofia, Bulgaria, calling into question whether her incredibly grueling tour and exercise schedule may be too much for a person her age - or any age.

Footage of Madonna in Bulgaria shows her almost faint, collapse or lose consciousness while singing "Holiday." She had to be supported by a dancer.

A backup dancer had to shake Madonna and wake her up.

The Sun (UK) claims she passed out leaving the stage, and while we can't corroborate or necessarily believe that, the footage does show her looking faint.

“She refused to end the show or take a break after the 'Holiday' dizzy spell," says a source. "It turns out she’s suffering from exhaustion. She is anemic."

"She was advised to postpone the last two shows in Israel for a few days, but logistics and stubborness stopped her. She’ll do them then take some rest.”

Hopefully Jesus Luz steps in and nurses his mom girlfriend back to health.

Check out the video of Madonna's collapse, or near-collapse, on stage:

All of a sudden, finishing second on Britain's Got Talent is the least of Susan Boyle's worries.

The singing sensation was rushed to the hospital a day after Saturday's finale, as judge Piers Morgan said:

"I spoke to her yesterday for about half an hour and she's fine. She's gone in for some rest. She needs to get away from everyone – get away from the show, from the media, the public, and just have a bit of down time to herself."

He added that Boyle entered the hospital entirely of her own volition and wished her a speedy recovery.

"Nobody, and I stress this, has had to put up with the kind of attention that Susan has. And no one could have predicted it – so we entered uncharted territory," Morgan said.

Hang in there, Susan Boyle! An adoring public awaits your return.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown even chimed in on the talent competition, congratulations winning dance troupe Diversity and adding:

"I hope Susan Boyle is okay, because she is a really, really nice person, and I think she will do well."

Daisy De La Hoya is tired. Really, really tired.

After all, it's not easy entertaining a slew of bachelors with names such as 12 Pack and Big Rig, as this reality TV star is forced to do every week in the VH1 series Daisy of Love.

Daisy de la Hoya Nude

For this reason - and certainly not because she's the type of woman that would use drugs -  De La Hoya was rushed to the hospital yesterday. Her rep just says Daisy needed a bit of rest and relaxation. And who can afford to go to a spa in this economy?!?

"Daisy was taken to the ER early this morning suffering from delirium as a result of exhaustion," Cassandra Grill told E! News. "There was no overdose. She is fine this evening and resting comfortably."

Of course she is. And if you believe mere lack of sleep was the reason for De La Hoya's amubulance ride, you must be really excited for the upcoming, totally unscripted new season of The Hills!

Celebrity gossip photographers are going to have to bust out the long lenses if they want to get the money shot of Amy Winehouse from now on.

The 25-year-old "Rehab" singer has won a court order preventing celeb news personnel from snapping photographs outside her north London home.

Photographers are now banned from approaching Winehouse within 100 yards of the house. The injunction is hanging outside her home in Enfield.

However, all is never well in Amy Winehouse's world - she was hospitalized for "dehydration" on Friday in St. Lucia, where she's been on "vacation."

  • Rehab Regular
  • Young Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse now, and in her younger days. Just saying.

Her spokesman confirms that Winehouse, who is scheduled to perform at the annual jazz festival in St. Lucia next week, spent the night in the hospital.

She was taken there after fainting and becoming exhausted.

He said that prior to passing out and being hospitalized, Amy Winehouse was "running around with children" and "failed to drink enough water."

That's what they call it now?

Turns out life as Lindsay Lohan's girlfriend is nothing compared to Chanukah shopping.

Having withstood a media firestorm for dating the troubled actress, Samantha Ronson was hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles Saturday night. The cause, according to Ronson? Holiday gift-giving.

"Thanks for all your messages," Ronson wrote in a MySpace blog yesterday. "I'm home and all good. Was just pretty exhausted from traveling and working too much to buy Chanukah gifts and my Jewish mother was worried about me."

Oh Vey: Samantha Ronson was overwhelmhed by the numerous days and nights involved with Chanukah.

Fortunately, while the Jewish holiday wore Ronson down, her ethnicity's food selections have her on the road to recovery:

"I had good company and a Jerry's Deli delivery of chicken soup and potato pancakes and am feeling much better. [I] am back to watching all my favourite Jerry Bruckheimer shows."

Since his "affair of the heart" was exposed, the personal life of Alex Rodriguez could best be called tumultuous. At worst, a train wreck.

The Sun (UK) reports that things aren't well with Madonna, either.

Apparently, the troubled Material Girl was recently diagnosed with anemia and exhaustion because she hasn't been taking care of herself.

Or so the British celebrity gossip paper claims. You know those Brits and their celeb gossip. Says an unnamed source quoted by The Sun ...

“Madonna is doing less than OK. She has been rehearsing for the tour and she is totally miserable. She’s down physically and mentally. The situation with Guy is very, very tense. The way the press are going crazy with the A-Rod story, her brother’s book and her physical exhaustion are all taking their toll on her."

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP NOTE: Is anyone surprised that Alex Rodriguez has exhausted Madonna? Those marathon sex tape sessions will do it every time.

The Hollywood Gossip has learned that Amy Winehouse was rushed to the hospital this morning with exhaustion after some sort of incident.

Winehouse's representative confirmed to TMZ that the hard-partying singer was taken to a London hospital and treated for what is described as severe "exhaustion."

What a Boob

Amy Winehouse has since been discharged and is currently at home. She has been ordered to take "complete rest."

When asked what prompted this, the rep said that a marathon lip-locking session with Blake Fielder-Civil was likely to blame.

Just kidding. Amy's rep would only say "it came about quickly." No other details are available at this time.

The singer's grueling world tour schedule is most likely to blame. At least a little.

For now, "no, no, no" more shows for the 'House. Really! They've been canceled!

It's hard to say what "exhaustion" consists of, as it varies from case to case. To use recent examples, Dave Chappelle was just wicked tired, while Jennifer Garner was out too long in the withering heat. Lindsay Lohan's stomach sometimes has to be pumped after going to town on six different guys. You just never know.

In any case, here's hoping Amy Winehouse a speedy recovery.

We've mocked past celebrities for being "exhausted."

Skeletons such as Nicole Richie and Lindsay Lohan, for example, seemed to check into hospitals purely because they hadn't eaten in weeks. Or had sniffed massive amounts of coaine.

But it does appear as though Dave Chappelle actually has some physical or mental problems.

The comedian checked into to an emergency room in an undisclosed Los Angeles hospital Saturday because he was suffering from exhaustion.

According to a story in People, Chappelle was treated and released a few hours later.

"It was exhaustion; he had been traveling," his rep said. "He's fine."

This isn't the only time the comic has had health issues, however. He often ends up on his back more often than Paris Hilton beneath her latest boy toy (Tyler Atkins, as it currently stands).

In May 2005, Chappelle generated headlines when he walked out on a $50 million Comedy Central contract and abandoned his Chappelle's Show in mid-production.

As was eventually revealed, he spent two weeks in Durbin, South Africa, before returning to his farm â€" and his wife and two children â€" in Ohio. He said the escape was a "spiritual retreat," which sounds like a euphemism Jason Wahler should adopt every time he hits the bottle.

Chappelle has since resumed performing live standup; in April broke the endurance record at the Laugh Factory comedy club in Los Angeles by performing his routine for more than six hours. That's almost as long as Diddy can have sex for!
