Does not want Swift to portray her

Mitchell does not want Taylor Swift to portray her in a film adaptation of the book Girls Like Us.

I squelched that! I said to the producer, ‘All you’ve got is a girl with high cheekbones.’ It’s just a lot of gossip; you don’t have the great scenes.

Confirms Mitchell’s condition

Makes Statement

Cosby confirms that Mitchell had an aneurysm and says she is currently unable to communicate.

I have not spoken with her. To my knowledge she is not speaking yet. She is home, she is in care, she is recovering. She took a terrible hit. She had an aneurysm, and nobody found her for a while. And she’s going to have to struggle back from it the way you struggle back from a traumatic brain injury…She’s a tough girl and very smart. So, how much she’s going to come back and when, I don’t know and I’m not going to guess. I love her… She’s probably the best of us — probably the greatest living singer-songwriter.

Official statement: Mitchell speaking, improving

Makes Statement

Mitchell’s official website elaborates on her condition, saying the artist is speaking and her condition is improving:

Joni did in fact suffer an aneurysm. However, details that have emerged in the past few days are mostly speculative. The truth is that Joni is speaking, and she’s speaking well. She is not walking yet, but she will be in the near future as she is undergoing daily therapies. She is resting comfortably in her own home and she’s getting better each day. A full recovery is expected.
