File this under "you're not a spring chicken anymore." I was very impressed with Madonna's performance at the Grammy awards. I hate Madonna, but she looked great and was dancing like the old days. I thought to myself, "I guess she's still got it." Unfortunately, appearances can be deceiving. She actually gave herself a hernia during her dance number and was taken to the hospital afterwards. I also stumbled across this old article from 2001 where Madonna's reps vigorously denied that had a hernia operation. I'm guessing that was true, and this Grammy incident was only an aggravation of an old injury. Which once again proves my theory, gossip is true until proven false.
