Nick Cannon Instagrams Pic from Hospital Bed
Apparently Nick Cannon thinks he's a superhero, according to his hospital bed Instagram photo posted yesterday. "Dont worry, Temporary pit stop... Sometimes I can be a little too bull headed and stubborn. I gotta stop running my body to the ground. I be wanting to grind nonstop but the engine can't run on fumes. On the low though, I really think I'm a super hero... Now I'm not saying I'm Batman, but I am saying nobody has ever seen me and Batman in the same room together. LOL #ImGood," he captioned. Though there's no word on the issue that landed him here, it looks like Cannon will be in good shape in no time! [Instagram]

Swift tweeted, "I thought I was being called out. I missed the point, I misunderstood, then misspoke. I'm sorry, Nicki. @NICKIMINAJ." A bit overdue, but a good deed none the less. [Twitter]
