Does life imitate art? It does when you’re Liza Minnelli. The legendary singer – who played vertigo-suffering Lucille Austero on Arrested Development – “felt dizzy” before passing out during a concert in Sweden Tuesday:
Liza Minnelli collapsed on stage during a performance in Sweden and was rushed back to the United States for medical treatment, a concert spokesman said Thursday.
“As she walked down the steps, she passed out. She was taken immediately to her hotel where a doctor was waiting,” Nedanovski told The Associated Press.
He said Minnelli was flown to the United States on Thursday on the advice of her doctors there.
The Old Queens of America Coalition announced plans to hold a vigil for Ms. Minnelli. “This is the biggest tragedy since AIDS,” said the group’s representative, Seymour Buttes.
