Jewel Thrown From Horse

April 25, 2002 12:00 AM ET

Jewel sustained a broken collarbone and a broken rib yesterday, when she was thrown from a horse at her boyfriend, rodeo star Ty Murray's Texas ranch. The singer also suffered severe bruises but did not need to be hospitalized. She will, however, have to wear a collar and a sling for the next four weeks.

Per her doctor's orders, Jewel will not travel for the next two weeks, forcing her to cancel her appearance at Fan Nation in Irvine, Calif., on April 27th. A decision about upcoming promotional stops and European tour has not been made and will depend how she recuperates from her injuries. For now, the European dates are set to begin May 10th in Milan, Italy, with a U.S. tour scheduled to begin in June.

Jewel's ranch accident is the second for a pop singer this year. Last month, Lyle Lovett was seriously hurt when he was trampled by a bull at his uncle's farm in Texas. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation for his broken right leg.

“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."
