The legendary singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell has seen better days according to her new biography, Reckless Daughter: A Portrait of Joni Mitchell, by David Yaffe.
The iconic folk singer has been living as a recluse in Los Angeles and British Columbia over the last decade, and now we finally know why.
Mitchell has recently been plagued with multiple health ailments, including a brain aneurysm that left her unable to talk for a while and an incurable mystery condition.
"I have this weird, incurable disease that seems like it's from outer space," Mitchell said in an interview a few years ago.
However, in the new book, she delves into more detail about the extent of her illness and it is heartbreaking.
