Later, Mitchell's official Twitter account confirmed she was hospitalized and that she was "awake and in good spirits."

Variety reports Mitchell previously confessed she's been a life-long smoker and said, "six decades of smoking have robbed me of my voice."

Last year, the singer-songwriter also published a revealing memoir in which she opened up about her struggles battling polio as a child, along with a fight against a rare condition where sufferers believe their skin is irritated by things like insects and parasites.

The Canadian-born folk music icon is known for hits like "Woodstock" and "Big Yellow Taxi," which earned her wide-spread fame in the 1970s. She went on to win eight Grammys throughout her illustrious career. (Video via BBC)
