Singer suffers undisclosed ailment, released from jail

January 22, 2003 12:00 AM ET

Bobby Brown, who was jailed last Friday after pleading guilty to a 1996 drunken driving charge, was admitted to a hospital in Atlanta on Tuesday.

Brown was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital after complaining of an undisclosed ailment. The thirty-three-year-old singer had been sentenced to eight days in prison but was to be released three days early for good behavior, and therefore will not have to return to the DeKalb County Jail. Brown was also ordered to perform 240 hours of community service and pay $2,600 in fines as part of his sentence.

Brown faces other charges in Georgia stemming from a November arrest for possession of marijuana, speeding and having no driver's license or proof of insurance.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
