Lindsey Vonn won't be competing in the winter Olympics due to a serious knee injury!

Many Olympic athletes are choosing not to participate in the upcoming Winter Olympics held in Sochi, Russia in protest of the country's archaic homophobic anti-gay laws.

However, skiier Lindsey Vonn doesn't have any choice at all!

After some speculation about whether or not she'd make the 2014 Winter Olympics due to a knee injury, the 29-year-old took to her Facebook earlier today to announce that she's withdrawing from the competition.

In a heartfelt message, she wrote:

Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky Fractures Leg Kickboxing

Filed under: FitnessInjuryReality TV

Ali Fedotowsky injury

Aww! We're so sorry to hear this!

Adorable Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky is on crutches after fracturing her femur while kickboxing last week!

Ouch!

She suffered the injury just weeks after returning from a romantic one-year anniversary getaway trip with her fiancé Roberto Martinez, but at least it didn't happen ON the trip!

When the accident occured, she first thought she'd torn the ACL in her knee, but an MRI later revealed a fracture as a result of a osteochondral defect in the cartilage in her leg.

This is the SECOND time she's been seriously injured while working out too! In April she received a head injury that required staples after her kayak overturned in San Diego waters.

Wow! This chick is hardcore! Ha!

Feel better, Ali!

Aerosmith's Steven Tyler Talks Addiction, Band Drama

Filed under: DrugsMusic Minute

wenn5498410jb.jpg

He's definitely had a rough few years, but it sounds like Steven Tyler of Aerosmith is getting back on his feet!

The frontman recently opened up about his troubles with the band, his addiction to painkillers, his upcoming autobiography and possible solo record!

Here are some highlights:

Being in Aerosmith is like living on the tail of a comet. I've had a lot of injuries over the last couple of the years. I had ACL reconstruction on my knee … operations on my feet, my mom passed away. A lot of things came to play that made it easy for me to abuse some things. … Even though some of the people in the band were going public with some of the stuff which turned very ugly, I managed to pull it all back together again and say, "Look, let's just get out there and be the band that we know we are and not argue about this crap anymore."

I'm doing a book called "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You," and I will be speaking about what it's like to be married to four other guys, and what I've had to put up with. … There will never be another band like Aerosmith, and I just don't want to do anything to hurt that. I love the band so much.

The truth is I've never stopped writing. I've got 12 songs I'm sitting on right now for a solo record. Aerosmith has to finish a studio album; we're gonna do that first.

I realize that the best part of me is who I am sober so that's all there is to it. … I don't know whether I will use tomorrow, but today I'm happy. … There's a 500-pound gorilla on my back, waiting in the parking lot for me that wants to take me down, and I won't for any reason go out there and deal with that. I have to get a knee replacement, I have to have another operation on my feet, and I'll let a nurse take care of my stuff. I just can't be around that stuff anymore. I need to be a power of example for my bandmates, don't I? (laughs)… I'm still in Aerosmith so the circus is still in town. So when it comes to dealing with the band, I take it a day at a time with these guys.

Eek! It certainly sounds like he's got more than his share of issues with his bandmates!

We're glad to see he can bite his tongue and put his love for the music first, though!

Best of luck, Steven! Stay strong!

We can't wait to hear your next batch of new tunes!

The Go-Go's Cancel Their Farewell Tour

Filed under: Music MinuteSad Sad

wenn734606jb.jpg

So sad. We were looking forward to this, too!

The Go-Go's have cancelled their summer tour after Jane Wiedlin tore her ACL!

They released this note:

It is with great regret that the Go-Go’s announce today the cancellation of Happily Ever After, their summer farewell tour. The tour was scheduled to kick off July 7 at Lilith Fair San Diego, and conclude in Austin, TX on July 27. The band will also be unable to perform live on Good Morning America, scheduled for July 16 in New York’s Central Park.

The news comes as a result of guitarist Jane Wiedlin injuring herself after a 20-foot fall while hiking near her home in Northern California a couple of weeks ago. Jane is scheduled for ACL replacement surgery for her knee in the coming weeks, with a prognosis of up to a year recovery time.

The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane’s speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.

Poor thing! Such an unfortunate set of circumstances!

We sincerely hope Jane recovers - keep your chin up, bb! We wish you only the best!
