Rock and reality TV star Bret Michaels is listed in critical condition today after suffering a brain hemorrhage last night, KTLA is reporting. Apparently, Michaels was "complaining of an excruciating headache" on Thursday night before being rushed to a local hospital. Last week the diabetic celebrity had an emergency appendectom, but it is unknown if today's case is related to that. "I have a pretty good threshold for pain, but this one hurts," he said in a note to fans, joking that he's being taken care of by hot nurses. The Poison frontman is currently on Celebrity Apprentice.
