UPDATE 8:14 PM EST: Joni's website claims that she is alert and responsive despite initial reports to the contrary!
So, so sad!
Joni Mitchell is still at the hospital, and according to the latest reports on Tuesday, the singer is not responsive at all.
Sources say Joni is in a coma at the UCLA Medical Center, and it's not looking too good.
Last month, the Big Yellow Taxi singer was rushed to the hospital and placed in intensive care, after she was found unconscious at home in LA. Sadly, unlike reports from earlier this month, it seems Joni, in fact, is not improving.

The songbird's close friend Leslie Morris has now filed for legal conservatorship over the music legend. Leslie has been Joni's friend for 44 years, and says there's no one else who could do this for her.
There have been some questions lately about whether or not the musician suffers from a rare condition called Morgellons. The symptoms of this condition actually sound pretty terrifying, and you can read more about the disease here.
We're devastated to learn of Joni's worsening condition, and our hearts go out to all of her friends and family.
