Rocker Bret Michaels advanced a novel new medical theory to explain his near-fatal brain hemorrhage last month: He was watching "Busty Cops 3."
If big-breasted women in skimpy outfits or less actually pose a health hazard to Michaels, he will need to make major lifestyle adjustments. Long before his surprising success on the Donald Trump-hosted TV show, Michaels began starring in a still-running MTV show, "Rock of Love," in which dozens of groupie-type babes vie for his affections.
On April 22, Michaels, 47, suffered a subarachnoid hemorrhage, an often fatal condition from which even survivors often never fully recover.
Michaels told Rolling Stone his recovery playlist includes predictable rock n roll dinosaurs Aerosmith, Kiss and AC/DC, but said he heard the much more mellow "American Pie" with after being discharged from the hospital in Arizona and was moved.
"When I heard lines like, 'This'll be the day that I die' ... I get chills just thinking about it," he told the music industry mag.
Michaels plans to return to Sunday night's live finale of "The Celebrity Apprentice," the Donald Trump-hosted show in which he and Holly Robinson Peete are the two finalists from episodes taped late last year. The show airs on NBC at 9 p.m. EST.
Win or lose, the Poison singer plans to resume his band's tour on May 28 with a show in Biloxi, Miss. Already a reality TV veteran from his "Rock of Love" show, Michaels will star in VH1's "Bret Michaels: Life as I Know It," which premieres May 31.
