Kelly Clarkson Rushed to Have Surgery Immediately After Hosting the Billboard Music Awards
Those who have seen Kelly Clarkson host the recently held Billboard Music Awards would agree that she did a great job. She looked gorgeous, her hosting was impeccable, and her performances were incredible. However, behind the smile she always had on her face, she was hiding pain. We meant literal pain, because as the show ended, the singer broke down in tears and had herself taken to the hospital.
Apparently, the 37-year-old singer had been suffering from appendicitis for a week prior to the BBMA show; she just did not seek treatment for it. Instead, Clarkson endured the pain until she could not take it anymore. Just a day after her hosting gig, the singer underwent surgery at the Cedars-Sinai hospital to have her appendix removed.
Appendicitis is the condition when the small tube-like organ called the appendix, becomes inflamed. Without proper treatment, this vestigial organ can burst and cause infection throughout the abdomen. It’s okay for doctors to remove the organ, because apparently, it does not have any important function at all. Some of the symptoms of appendicitis include unbearable abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and loss of appetite.
Mild cases of the condition can be treated with medication, but extreme cases need the appendix to be removed via surgery. Clarkson’s case obviously belonged in the extreme category, which makes us want to praise her for giving her best and delivering a flawless performance despite the pain she was in.
When Clarkson went back to work for NBC’s The Voice, she was asked questions and praised by an interviewer at the same time. She downplayed the praises by saying most artists would have done what she did – continued hosting the BBMA show in spite of the pain. The singer could not help but mention Blake Shelton (her The Voice co-judge) and his appendicitis case, which was worse as his had ruptured.
