Lil Wayne spent the weekend in the hospital, triggering the most overheated celebrity deathwatch in recent years. His reps told the Associated Press that the rapper, 30, had suffered a seizure, which have plagued him in the past, and that he was recovering. But a TMZ report suggesting he was on his deathbed revved up fan interest — and set off a wave of furious Twitter denials from relatives and famous pals. As of Sunday, reps told CNN he was fine, “just resting.” Provocative backdrop, anyway, for the release of Weezy’s new album next week. In unrelated news of other fragile music icons, Tone Loc collapsed on stage in Des Moines (another seizure-prone guy who does that a lot, actually), and Morrissey canceled the rest of his U.S. tour because of ailments including a bleeding ulcer and double pneumonia.
