Joni Mitchell, who was famous in the 1960’s for her songwriting and being synonymous with the Woodstock era, has reportedly been hospitalized in intensive care.

According to TMZ, the 71-year-old musician was found unconscious in her home earlier this afternoon, when a 911 call was placed around 2:30 P.M.

The site reports:

Sources tell us paramedics went to 71-year-old Mitchell’s Los Angeles home around 2:30 PM. We’re told the 911 call was for an unconscious female, but she was alert on the way to the hospital.

Mitchell was in intensive care late Tuesday. It’s unclear what prompted the medical emergency, but it appears to be quite serious.

We’ve put in several calls to Joni’s rep … but haven’t heard back.
