Manilow walks into a wall...

Barry Manilow Hits the Wall, Breaks His Nose
Wed Jun 4, 6:52 AM ET


LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Veteran singer-songwriter Barry Manilow (news), recently waking up disoriented in the middle of the night, walked into a wall and broke his nose, knocking himself unconscious, the entertainer disclosed on Tuesday.


The accident occurred at his home in the desert resort of Palm Springs, California, just after Manilow had returned from a two-week stay in the seaside town of Malibu, where he was producing an upcoming album for his old boss, Bette Midler (news).


Roused from a sound sleep thinking he was still in Malibu, Manilow got up and "veered to the left instead of the right and slammed right into the wall," he said in a statement released by his management company, Stiletto Entertainment.


He passed out for four hours, and though he was not seriously hurt, the 56-year-old performer said the mishap left his nose quiet swollen. His sense of humor remained intact, however.


"I may have to have my nose fixed, and with this nose, it's going to require major surgery," he said, referring to his famously prominent profile.


The statement did not make clear exactly when the accident occurred.


Manilow said he intends to finish work on the Midler album -- a tribute to the late Rosemary Clooney (news) -- as well as on his own two-disc live collection, "Two Nights Live."


He also is going ahead with plans to begin rehearsals for an original stage musical with Bruce Sussman, "Harmony," scheduled to open in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, this fall, with a possible Broadway debut early next year.


Starting out as a pianist, arranger and musical director for Midler in the early 1970s, Manilow became a solo sensation with a string of hits later that decade, including "Mandy," "I Write the Songs," "This One's For You," "Can't Smile Without You" and "Copacabana."





off of yahoo news..... I really dont like his music...

I came for the hatred.
I stayed for the ballbag.

That's funny... I don't care for his music either. It does make me laugh that someone can break their nose walking into a wall and be sober

I can see that happening to me someday, except it will involve a cat or dog lying innocently on the floor.

Because he's famous and you're not.

if a famous person walks into a wall, i dont care. i think its a little narcissistic of him to announce a press conference for something as trivial as this... dont you?

ok, then i would direct my wrath at the news media. why do they need to know if someone broke their nose? isnt there something more important to cover? i know this sounds like grasping at straws but its a legit peeve.

Because it's extremely funny that a famous singer, who is very famous for his prominent nose, broke his nose.



I dunno, they gotta do something, right?
