Carrie Fisher hospitalized after bipolar disorder flares up on cruise ship



Erstwhile Princess Leia Carrie Fisher (yes, that is how she will forever be known) is recovering after a strange performance on a cruise ship last week. Her rep confirms Fisher's bipolar disorder accounted for the bizarre act, which was showcased on YouTube (watch above).

In the video, Fisher, who was billed as a "surprise" celebrity guest on the Holland America Eurodam cruise through the Caribbean, according to TMZ, is shown singing Johnny Mercer's Skylark off key while her dog uses the stage as a fire hydrant. It all seemed kind of off, sure, but a lot of folks were saying she was drunk or high, meaning she had relapsed into drug addiction.

"There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder," her rep told the site. "She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now." Holland America doesn't know if she'll be invited back. Well, then, we don't know if we'll take Holland America!
