TMZ reported that paramedics were called to the 71-year-old’s Los Angeles home around 2:30 p.m. to treat an unconscious female. The woman was awake on the trip to the hospital, the website reported.

Famous for early ’70s hits such as “Both Sides Now,” and “Big Yellow Taxi,” Mitchell was one of the most prominent musicians to come out of the legendary 1960s Laurel Canyon music scene, which included the Doors; Neil Young; Crosby, Stills & Nash; Carole King; the Eagles; and the Mamas and the Papas. Since then her music has inspired and been covered by artists including Prince, Bjork, Janet Jackson, Steely Dan and Chaka Khan.

TMZ said the Canadian singer-songwriter was taken into intensive care following a 911 call

Mitchell survived polio and scarlet fever as a child and in 2010 said she suffers from with Morgellons, a controversial condition that causes people to experience a crawling sensation on the skin.
