Lily Allen may be posting some respectable sales numbers, but otherwise the British singer can’t catch a break lately. The “Smile” hitmaker has been in the hospital since Thursday morning after suffering from “projectile vomiting” due to potential food poisoning, according to her social media accounts. 

Allen’s illness followed an appearance on U.K. comedy show Chatty Man. “Prepping for chattyman feeling a  little bit #QUEAZUS and very #SNEEZUS green juice emergency,” she wrote on Wednesday. Hours later, she added, “I can’t stop projectile vomiting, also temperature #poisoned.” By Thursday morning, Allen tweeted, “#SHEEHYDRATING #poisoned.” Allen then shared a hospital selfie, below, and continued tweeting from the hospital earlier today (May 9).

The spell of poor health comes as Allen’s new album, Sheezus, is on pace for No. 1 in Britain (per NME) and a top 10 start in the States (per Hits Daily Double). That’s despite it being, as SPIN put it, “a tepid mess of bitch bombs and botched satire.” Allen also recently found herself forced to deny mocking Beyoncé with her “Drunk in Love” cover. Watch Allen’s “Sheezus” video here.
