“The airbags didn't deploy,” the 81-year-old singer said. “I don't know if that was a blessing or a curse.”

Gilley suffered a broken ankle and fractured shoulder after the car he and his son were in flipped at an intersection to avoid another car, KTRK reported.

Gilley said his son was driving a Toyota Scion northbound on U.S. 59 as they headed toward the singer’s home in Branson, Missouri. When another car crossed in front of them at an intersection, Gilley’s son swerved to avoid it and their car flipped, KTRK reported.

“It was like slow motion,” Gilley told KTRK. “The unbelievable feeling you get when you know you're going to hit something and there's nothing you can do about it.”

He remembers his son cutting him out of his seat belt. He was photographed in a red jacket after he was rescued.

“At 81, I'm very lucky. When I open my shows now, I tell the people I just turned 81, I hope I look like I'm 50. I walk like I'm 90,” Gilley said. "So I'm gonna be walking like I'm 100 now, with this boot on my left leg.”

Carrie also told fans that she’s still “healing and not quite looking the same,” but when she’s ready to get in front of a camera, “I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different. I’m hoping that, by then, the differences are minimal, but, again, I just don’t know how it’s all going to end up.”

Despite Underwood's update, it looks like a new photo of her post-fall has already surfaced on social media.

Adrienne Gang, a reality star from the first season of Bravo’s “Below Deck," shared a photo on Twitter of her posing next to Carrie after a Dec. 12 workout class.

Later, Gang also revealed that she “had no idea” the “Church Bells” hit-maker had ever been hurt.

“She had a wrist brace on, but I didn’t think much of it until I saw the headlines after I posted our picture together,” Gang told US Weekly on Tuesday. “I didn’t notice anything amiss on her face. Simply, she looked lovely. She was extremely friendly and gracious.”

Carrie Underwood tells fan club that she injured face in fall, needed 40-50 stitches

Sometimes, things aren’t what they seem.

Carrie Underwood fans were concerned when the country star took a spill on her front steps in November, causing her to cancel an appearance at a benefit show in Nashville and husband Mike Fisher to come home from a hunting trip. Underwood revealed that she had broken her wrist significantly enough that it required surgery, which is why Fisher came back to Nashville.

But a few days after her surgery, Fisher shared a poignant post on his Instagram that made it seem as if that tumble down her steps may have been something worse. Still, no other details were shared by either Underwood or Fisher. And since then, the couple has been relatively quiet.

In a letter to members of her fan club, Underwood has shared more details of the injuries she sustained in that fall.

Underwood explained that she is still receiving physical therapy for her wrist, then added: "There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up. It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”

She continued: “In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”

She also wrote: “Now … 7 weeks later and, even though I’ve had the best people helping me, I’m still healing and not quite looking the same. I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful. I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”

Underwood said she has a long way to go in the recovery process but is also hopeful.

Mariah Carey finds her New Year's tea, takes Twitter by storm

Mariah Carey got another chance to perform during “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest” after bombing last year, but she didn’t just slay her performances — she became an internet sensation in the process, and it was all thanks to her love of tea.

>> PHOTOS: New Year's celebrations around the world

At Sunday evening’s event, after she had finished performing her first song, Carey noticed that there was no tea on hand to warm her up in the tundra-esque New York climate.

“I was told there would be tea. Oh, it’s a disaster!” she told the audience. “OK, well, we’ll just have to rough it. I’m gonna be like everybody else with no hot tea.”

Given Carey's diva reputation, the request was fairly mundane. But social media users had plenty to say:

But of course, Carey always gets her own way, and in the end, she found her tea.

The pop icon announced the news that she would be performing at the televised celebration in a joint statement with Dick Clark Productions, saying, “We can all agree that last year didn’t go exactly as planned and we are thrilled to move forward together to provide America with an incredible night of music and celebration on ‘Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2018.’ See you in Times Square!”

In a public spat, the singer blamed her disastrous performance last year on ear piece issues and later accused the production company of purposely attempting to sabotage her. Dick Clark Productions denied involvement in Carey’s meltdown in a statement:

"In very rare instances there are of course technical errors that can occur with live television, however, an initial investigation has indicated that Dick Clark Productions had no involvement in the challenges associated with Ms. Carey’s ‘New Year’s Eve’ performance. We want to be clear that we have the utmost respect for Ms. Carey as an artist and acknowledge her tremendous accomplishments in the industry."

“It is difficult to perform in Times Square,” Seacrest followed up on his "On Air With Ryan Seacrest" radio show last January, “[Carey] knows what Times Square is about. It’s complicated. Imagine every single TV outlet in the world was there. So, there’s all kinds of technical things going on."

That was on the  menu for celebrity rocker Jon Bon Jovi during his visit to a South Florida restaurant Wednesday afternoon. Bon Jovi and a party of nearly 20 adults and children dined at Benny’s on the Beach in Lake Worth.

His visit was not a surprise, Benny’s manager Justin McCall said.

Bon Jovi is a friend of Benny’s owner Lee Lipton and it was known that he would be stopping in. His appearance was not promoted out of concern that it might attract a larger-than-capacity crowd, McCall said.

“He was super chill,” McCall said of Bon Jovi, who ordered the seared Tuna Tostada, one of the restaurant’s best sellers. “He came and he ate and on his way out out, he stopped and took pictures with anybody who asked him.”

Lorde cancels concert in Israel amid criticism

New Zealand crooner Lorde has canceled a planned show in Tel Aviv amid pressure from activists who oppose the Israeli occupation of Palestine, according to multiple reports.

Lorde planned to perform in Tel Aviv on June 5, 2018, according to

She said in a statement obtained Sunday by The Jerusalem Post that she got “an overwhelming number of messages (and) letters and … had a lot of discussions with people holding many views” before making her decision to cancel the performance.

“I think the right decision at this time is to cancel the show,” the statement said. “I'm not too proud to admit I didn't make the right call on this one. Tel Aviv, it's been a dream of mine to visit this beautiful part of the world for many years, and I'm truly sorry to reverse my commitment to come play for you. I hope one day we can all dance.”

The announcement came after a pair of New Zealanders wrote an open letter to Lorde asking her to reconsider her decision to perform in Tel Aviv.

The letter, published last week on, was penned by Justine Sachs, who is Jewish, and Nadia Abu-Shanab, who is Palestinian.

“Today, millions of people stand opposed to the Israeli government’s policies of oppression, ethnic cleansing, human rights violations, occupation and apartheid,” the letter said. “As part of this struggle, we believe that an economic, intellectual and artistic boycott is an effective way of speaking out against these crimes. This worked very effectively against apartheid in South Africa, and we hope it can work again.”

The pair urged Lorde to “act in the spirit of progressive New Zealanders who came before you and continue their legacy,” by canceling her show.

Lorde acknowledged the letter last week in a tweet and said she was "considering all options."

Some fans praised Lorde’s decision, while others decried it. Miri Regev, Israel's culture minister, urged Lorde to rethink the cancellation.

“Lorde, I’m hoping you can be a ‘pure heroine’ like the title of your first album,” Miri Regev said in a statement obtained by The Guardian. “To be a heroine of pure culture, free from any foreign – and ridiculous – political considerations.”

Lorde was not the first performer pressured to cancel a planned appearance in Israel by pro-Palestinian activists. According to the country’s Ynetnews, Elvis Costello and Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore have canceled shows in Israel amid criticism. Rock band Radiohead was also urged to cancel a show last summer in Tel Aviv but went through with the performance after corresponding with critics, Ynetnews reported.
