Bret Michaels!

We were thrilled to see you doing so well on American Idol last night, but please be safe!

The Celebrity Apprentice winner, who has had THREE serious health scares back to back, apparently performed on the reality competition last night without consulting his doctors or family!

He says:

"The doctors, I didn't tell them I was going to do this. I never told them I was coming here. They're going to find out in a few minutes! To be honest, there's still obviously a lot of pain I’m still experiencing … [but] I feel great. Here’s the thing. They have not said everything’s OK. I’m running about 75 percent realistically, physically, but in my soul and my heart, I feel great. I needed to do this tonight, just to come here. It’s my first musical performance back and after this, I’m hoping to go out on the road, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m going to see how that goes and just take it a few shows at a time. Later on, I may collapse, but right now, I feel great. I got on stage, first of all, the fans and friends and family were all here. It was such an awesome feeling to see everyone screaming and cheering and singing along with the song. I was like, 'Hey, that’s three generations out there, that’s all I’ve wanted to do is have a great music career and to be able to do that, 20-some years later, that’s a great feeling. This was good for my soul."

He argues himself a good case! What an inspiration! And he sounded AMAZING last night! You could tell how much the appearance meant to him!!

We just want to make sure you're not pushing yourself too hard, bb! Try and take it easy!

    I was a huge fan. It is beyond obvious that he is addicted to attention/fame/money. Why would he risk his life like that? I thought he loved his children. Very sad and shameful.



  2. 2

    Love Bret - what an awesome guy!



  3. 3

    Just wanted to add my two cents… this was the most amazing part of the show IMHO. He really is an inspiration even if I do think he's pretty much a hoebag! :)



  4. 4

    Seriously, you need to take a break or your kids are going to grow up without a Daddy.



  5. 5

    Brett is a FATHER and he should want to get WELL for his children!!!!Does he need the money? Is that why he is doing so many shows??? He is killing himself.



  6. 6

    Bret, take a fucking break. You got lucky about 8 times now and your camera whore-ishness is evident for all to see. How about you chillax with your daughter and marry your longtime girlfriend so your daughter isn't a bastard anymore?



  7. 7

    I'm so sick of people idolizing drug fiends. It's truly disgusting in this world that absolutely NOTHING anyone does is looked down on as wrong to do.

    I was never a big fan of this guy but his hard work on The Apprentice and everything he's gone through recently has definitely changed my mind about him…it was so awesome to see him on Idol last night…best part of the show for sure!



  9. 9

    He is a selfish douche what do you expect.



  10. 10

    Not very smart. Hopefully he doesn't run into any problems…there is no point in having a career if you aren't here to enjoy it!



  11. 11

    The sympathy tour/death watch will continue every second of the day for the next 6 months, and Pig Face will be there every step of the way enabling yet one more famewhore. Milk it, honey, this is the best promotional material you've had in your career.



  12. 12

    one of the best performances…i was pretty nervous watching him though, just because of all he's gone through. clearly he doesn't care what the docs say, he knows he could die any minute, so he's just saying screw it and doing what he loves-performing.



  13. 13

    I have to tell you I am starting to think he's an idiot. He obviously loves the attention more than himself and girls. If he had part of a brain he would know to not jump back in and take what his doctors say to heart, or brain and slow down. If he winds back in the hospital and dies that all his fault and he leaves two little girls wondering what happened.



  14. 14

    This is a true rock star. Even if it kills him, he will go out fighting and doing what he loves and what makes him happiest. Why take that from someone. Good luck out there Bret.



  15. 15

    YEAH TEE HEE HIDE IT FROM YOUR DOCTORS CAUSE WHAT? DO YOU THINK THEY CARE ABOUT YOUR LIFE MORE THAN YOU DO? I DON'T GET IT? ARE YOU SNEAKING OUT BECAUSE MAYBE THEY WOULD TELL YOU IT COULD BE DEADLY?



  16. 16

    I never was much of a fan but Im sure the last thing he wants is any show of fake compassion from the likes of Mario. He would probably prefur the 2 were never mentioned in the same conversation. I know I would want to distance my self from the fat hatefull pig that is the monster Mario were I in the public spotlight



  17. 17

    Re: backfire – and then if he listened to his doctors he would not have done it, and guess what OMG BRET MICHAELS IS ALIVE TODAY. So why make a big deal about it, the event is over. No harm, no foul.



  18. 18

    OMG more of this idiot! I can't wait for him to stroke out on national TV! I will TiVo it and watch it over and over again and laugh my ass off!



  19. 19

    He's such a fame whore for god sakes he just was in critical condition a few weeks ago, the only reason why he went on American idol was because of what they are paying him and of course more TV exposure. Before this all happen he was playing dive bars across the west and from the pics of rock of love bus they even had a hard time filling them up. Yes terrible situation he was in and of course still is but come on here isn't this just a little to much?



  20. 20

    When it come down the pike it's gonna hit this egomaniac hard. I don't think he'll like paralysis and brain damage very much. I hope he's having fun now because he's tempting fate big time.



  21. 21

    The poor guy has been trying to be on headlines since Poison split LOL now he's taking advantage and living his moment… The more he shows up the more attention he gets.. he's selfish he's doing everything for attention while other people really care for him IDIOT



  22. 22

    Some of the younger performers today need to take a lesson from Bret. He is the epitome of class and hell yea Rock.. He did an awesome job last night and clearly he was into it.. Although he looked very tired he rocked just like he wanted to.. God Bless ya Bret.



  23. 23

    what a big farce, this guy has been in obscurity for the past 20 years and even 20 years ago wasnt even that famous and now all of a sudden he is everywhere you look and for what? these nobodies are just being forced down our throats by the media now, no talent needed.



  24. 24

    go away get better please



  25. 25

    Anyone drinking Bret Michaels'
    Snapple Trop-A-Rocka Diet Tea
    need to know it is sweetened with
    ASPARTAME.

    Google ASPARTAME and DIABETES
    to see many claims that ASPARTAME
    may cause diabetes,
    among many other health side effects.

    Aspartame is bed news,
    just Google it and take a look.

    he gonna throw a clot or something with all the air travel, and it's gonna be over. i wish he'd stay home with his kids!



  27. 27

    WHATEVER!!! AGAIN, thank you SHARON OSBOURNE for making this happen! PUBLICITY, totally FAKE!!



  28. 28

    I feel the same way, Perez! Great show but please PLEASE please be careful and don't work too hard, Bret! I would be so sad if we lost him.



  29. 29

    FAME WHORE ALERT…..HIS DYING BREATH WILL BE TRYING TO GET THE COVER OF PEOPLE MAGAZINE..I WOULD BUY THE GOSSIP RAG THAT HAD HIS TWITCHING DYING BODY ON THE FRONT OF IT…I DON'T KNOW WHAT I THINK ABOUT THAT.



  30. 30

    MAYBE HIS AUTOPSY PICTURE WILL FINALLY SHOW US WHAT HIS HAIR LOOKS LIKE????????



  31. 31

    There was a crew that took to the stage at the very end of Janet's performace when the screen came down to cover her dancers. Among them was a woman with some dramatic hair, but affter the commercial they were gone. Who were they and what was the next performance which followed Janet?



  32. 32

    Sunday night in New York he needed a moment to compose himself on the red carpet and was not up to celebrating his win on The Apprentice. Two days later he is in LA, rocking out on stage and feeling great? I fear we may (literally) witness his next (and final) collapse if he does not take time to rest and heal. I'd rather celebrate his life while he is breathing, rather than in the ground. YOU NEED A TIME OUT BRET MICHAELS!!!

  33. @v@ says – reply to this

    Well, if you have to go, go with your boots on and happy, but so far so good for him; 75% is pretty good. I'll bet his kids were ecstatic that their Dad was singing on Idol.



  34. 34

    Casey and Bret's duet was the highlight of the Idol finale.



  35. 35

    Sad Perez will post anything on just about anybody he gets $$ for on here. And who cares about this ancient child luring, sex addicted, hee-haw delusional hippie???
