Bret Michaels Will Perform Tonight Despite Doctor's Orders

| Filed under: Music MinuteInspiration

Bret Michaels is quite the trooper!

Despite his doctors orders to stay off his feet, the rocker will perform tonight at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, MS.

Even though he had a check-up yesterday and was told everything was fine, Bret's doctor says he's still not "100%."

Sources say that precautions are being taken though, saying that "Bret will be slower on stage … not a lot of dancing and will take it easy" as well as making sure there's "medical personnel" in the house just in case.

You should probably listen to your doctors, Bret! You need to take it easy and slow down!

    Brett Michaels for American Idol!!!

    I was a fan of his before most people knew who he was. But he's being selfish. If he's not 100% and a seizure occurs,…what becomes of his kids??? yea…he and the birth mother have been a couple for years. But that still leaves a void in their lives should he become a fatality due to rockin' out.
    .
    I like his gumshun but he MUST think of his family first!

    Gary Coleman is dead. 2:49 RIP

    Holy shit. I don't think we need a new update on fucking Bret Michaels or Lady Gaga every half an hour…

    Do the words "warning stroke" not mean anything to this guy? The world will not be too sad if he took a little break from his middle-aged rocking out, but people would be very sad if he died.



  6. 6

    $$$$$ that's all this guy obviously cares about!!



  7. 7

    He's not a "trooper" if he's going against his Dr.'s wishes. They know his condition and know if it is safe for him to be performing or not. As much as I love Bret, I'd rather he take the time he needs to get 100% healthy. We don't want to lose him b/c he's being such a "trooper" and overdoing it.



  8. 8

    It's his decision. Anyhow, I wish him well.



  9. 9

    I LOVE YOU, BRET!!!!

    He's had fantastic luck, but he's pushing it right now.



  12. 12

    It's official: This guy is a fucking idiot.



  13. 13

    Stupid. Why is he being a famewhore instead of taking care of himself?



  14. 14

    I hope that is not a bottle
    of Snapple Trop-A-Rocka Tea
    in Bret's hand.

    Trop-A-Rocka Tea is sweetened
    with ASPARTAME -
    which if very unhealthy for people
    with diabetes -
    also very unhealthy for
    people without diabetes.

    Maybe Fox News was right (did I just say that?). Maybe he was faking to get sympathy and win celebrity apprentice. I sure would like to see the x-rays.

    He might consider "Survivor" for his next gig!



  16. 16

    This is so stupid!

    Bret, your fans don't want your blood on their hands- they will still be your fans if you postpone. You need to take it easy for a while.



  17. 17

    I think he needs to take the time to recover!!!!



  18. 18

    He needs to be careful. Celebrity deaths come in threes, and Gary Coleman just died of a brain hemmorage. He's taunting death.



  19. 19

    who cares

    zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz



  20. 20

    This man scares the shit out of me. All I want him to do is REST, REST, REST, until his other surgery and REST some more.

    What a fucking idiot.



  22. 22

    think he might want to rethink this given Gary Coleman just died from the same thing he had a few weeks ago…. death is not so thrilled you you continually give it the finger



  23. 23

    THIS DUMBASS FAKED THIS ILLNESS IN ORDER TO WIN CELEBRITY APPRENTICE AND GET FAME FOR HIS SORRY, WORN OUT ASS



  24. 24

    Re: naomib1 – LMAO!!!!



  25. 25

    HE NEEDS TO STAY HIS ASS AT HOME AND BE A FATHER!! douchebag.



  26. 26

    Ego that still won't die ughhh.



  27. 27

    Thank you SHARON OSBOURNE for makin' it happen!



  28. 28

    He's not a trooper, he's an idiot. But, hey, it's his life (or lack thereof).



  29. 29

    He's an idiot. Only someone immature AND someone with a huge ego would go against doctors orders.
    He's selfish too b/c he has kids. I bet you think you are SO tough Brett. I officially do not care what happens to you now because you are digging your own grave. Utter stupidity.



  30. 30

    why don't he just cut his hair, throw that head band and stupid looking cowboy hat away…he's a grown man….that's why he got sick, too much stuff on his head…



  31. 31

    Bret Michaels is pushing the envelope………..way over the limit. If he's not careful he will be closely following Gary Coleman…………………..

    Doing one tune on Idol is a far cry from doing a whole night. Considering, I think it ill advised, but more importantly, if his physician wants him off his feet, he needs to get off his feet, or risk never being on them ever again. If he listens, he can do what he needs to do and then stage a proper recovery. Dumbass. A Hard Rock gig isn't worth losing his life or his children's father's life and potential Grandpa's life.



  33. 33

    I'll believe it when he's dying. Not to be cruel, but I personally believe this is a crock of shit.

    He should be happy he's alive and spending quality time with family and friends while he's suppose to be recovery, not spreading it all over the tabloids like a fame-whore.



  34. 34

    idiot famewhore



  35. 35

    This is not good.



  36. 36

    I like that he boldly and proudly hangs to the right as he does.

    I would suspect that a genuine rocker would go commando always though.

    Its good advice to all guys out there - to always be ready to be sucked at the drop of a zipper and all that.

    Maybe he's in denial about the significance of his illness/injury? That can happen when someone is rather young and facing mortality issues. Combine that with the fact it is all so new and moving so quickly.

    I wonder if Bret is in some form of denial and showing his bulge in such an appetizing way is his way of distracting himself and others from all the peril?



  37. 37

    BULLSHIT. This is all a publicity stunt. I can't wait for the truth to come out. Than he can say goodbye to fame for good. How low of him to do this. Just to get in the spotlight. I have lost all respect for him.



  38. 38

    I THINK HE IS LYING!! How can you have such a serious condition but make it to the Finale of Celebrity Apprentice. Come on people… get with the program. This is ballon boy all over again.



  39. 39

    He is performing because he needs to pay his doctor's bill



  40. 40

    I see an awful lot of comparisons to Gary Coleman here…brain bleed and then death. Keep thinking Bret M must have a death wish . The doctors have told him NOT to do it each time he goes on stage for any reason and he goes and does it anyway. Selfish is the best way to describe his behaviour. He has two little (well, not litttle but young) daughters who need their daddy to be around. He has many fans who want to see him perform for years to come but his recent "I'm gonna go do it anyway" approach is only hurting his chances to LIVE. Gosh, you'd think he would step back and take better care of himself FOR his family. I understand striking while the iron has re-heated to HOT but…jeez….listen to your docs and rest, rest, rest. Diabetees, brain bleeds, and hole in the heart should say REST too. But , for Bret it does not…what IS he trying to prove???



  41. 41

    I am not understanding or buying this whole Bret brain thing. My ex mother in law had one of the brain hemorrage thingees and she was in the hospital for almost 3 months and then in physical therapy for months after that and she walked with a walker. Look now what happened to gary coleman. he died of the same thing as thousands of ppl do all the time. Now all of a sudden Bret is out and about performing and traveling and has all his hair. That's another thing they shave your head. I do think that there was some type of health problem but not the seriousness that they reported. I think it's all a big publicity scam so he won apprentice and so he gets the gig on Idol which if he is a judge I will not be watching. He's a has been, washed up and probably very bald liar.



  42. 42

    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.



  43. 43

    Yes Bret perform and for the finale show us all what a stroke looks like! What an idiot!



  44. 44

    I think he just has a very strong work ethic and doesn't want to disappoint fans for a concert planned months in advance. Good Grief, Brett, I think you'll be forgiven. It's not like you gave 24 hours cancellation notice for a common cold or something.



  45. 45

    fuck it, the guy wants to live….let him live……its just like chris allen says "you gots to live like you dying"



  46. 46

    Brett Michaels is a workaholic.If he is not careful he will find himself six feet under in a minute.



  47. 47

    Now you listen son, this is Granny J talkin' to you. You do what you feel like doin' and when you've had enough,,,,,,,,,,,,you just sit your fanny down and REST



  48. 48

    Despite DR's orders?!
    dumbass

    BRET MICHAELS FAKED THE SECOND PART OF SICKNESS. I KNOW HE DID, AND WITH TRUMPS APPROVAL FOR RATINGS. THE PR MACHINE OF BRET MICHAELS WORKED OVER TIME ON THIS ONE. WHY WOULD THE HOSPITAL LET HIM WEAR THAT BANDANNA BECAUSE WHEN I WAS IN HOSPITAL I HAD THE SAME ONE AND WORE IT AND NURSE MADE ME TAKE IT OFF! BRET MICHAELS PULLED A FAST ONE ON US ALL BUT THAT IS HOW HE IS… HE SAID TO ME ONCE, HIS NICKNAME IS "STICK EM'" I HAVE AN OLD INTERVIEW OF HIM FROM 1984 WHEN NO ONE KNEW WHO HE WAS, AND HE LIVED IN OUR BUILDING IN HOLLYWOOD AND WE THREW WATER BALLOONS OFF THE ROOF OF THE BUILDING AND I HAVE PHOTOS OF BRET AND HIS BAND SITTING ON MY COUCH IN HALLWAY AS I PLAYED AND SANG… PLUS YOU SHOULD SEE HOW THEY LOOK, SO SHABBY AND POOR. BRET IS FINE… ANYONE WOULD HAVE DONE WHAT HE DID, LOOK AT THAT JERK JONNY FAIRPLAY, ALL IS FAIR IN A GAME LIKE THAT… SAD, WE THOUGHT SHARON OSBOURNE WAS THE ONE FAKING! IT WAS BRET ALL ALONG!

    AS FOR GARY COLEMAN, HIS WIFE PUSHED HIM DOWN THE STAIRS OR EVEN LED HIM THAT WAY BY SCREAMING AT HIM AND MAKING HIS TEMPER RISE, THEREFORE BLOOD PRESSURE, THEN HE FALLS DOWN STAIRS, DIES AND SHE COLLECTS HIS SOCIAL SECURITY WHICH WOULD BE AORUND 2800 per month! Because he was disabled, and the gov't pays people like that who have put in certain amount into system. So she did it. No proof but isn't it funny how she moves back with him last week, and this week, he's dead. No one is going to investigate ’cause he was broke and an jerk and not a nice person. So REST IN PEACE. I used to hang out at their studio where they filmed the show, even ran around making trouble with Dana Plato. When Gary had to do scenes, he made them all leave…Dana Plato and I hid behind the seats and laughed and hooted and then go thrown off the set. He was pissed and wanted to know who I was. I was a pal of the costume woman… wild! Those were fun days.
