At least she hasn't lost her sense of humour.
On Friday Miley Cyrus took a selfie showing her wearing a duck-face oxygen mask and shared it with fans on Instagram.
Her pun-filled message read: 'This hospitals full of a bunch of QUACKS (get it??? Quacks) #punnyeveninthehospy #stayinglightlovingandpositive #imissbangerztour #tryingtonotbebitter'
The 21-year-old pop star is in a hospital in Kansas City recovering from a severe allergic reaction to the antibiotic cephalexin that was prescribed for her sinus infection.
In the morning she tweeted: 'Sick of waking up to needles.'
Aside from trying to make light of the illness that has forced her to cancel a number of dates on her Bangerz tour, she has been defending herself from various rumours about her health scare.
The singer has not taken kindly to the gossip as she hit out at the detractors on Thursday with a defensive tweet.
She wrote, accompanying a note from her rep describing the details of her health scare: 'shut the f*** up & let me heal. stop scaring my family, friends, & fans. OFFICIAL STATEMENT.'
News of her health scare is accompanied by a slew of cancelled tour dates in St. Louis, Missouri, Nashville and Kansas City, according to People.com.
Mirnada Kerr has landed yet another endoresement deal and she wants the world to know it.
On Thursday the model shared a photo of herself holding on to a very large bottle of Escada perfume, which she has become the spokesperson for.
The former Victoria's Secret looker added a reminder that she soon will turn age 31 - on April 20 - with her caption: 'Surprise early birthday gift!'
'Surprise early birthday gift!' Miranda Kerr took to Instagram to debut the new fragrance she's the face of for Escada, called Joyful, on Friday
Wearing a chic and sheer white blouse, Miranda clutches the enormous bottle - surely larger than those intended to be sold in stores - and shoots the camera her signature dimpled smile.
Her brunette tresses are elegantly styled in neat waves and her pretty face is decorated with a light layering of makeup.
She wore simple diamond earrings as her only jewelry.
Easter surprise: Miranda Kerr wears a pair of Playboy style bunny ears for an Easter shoot for Love Magazine
It was announced in mid March that Miranda would be the new face of Escada's Joyful fragrance, and she was quick to share the news on her various social media platforms.
The Italian brand shared the same photo a few hours earlier saying: 'Thrilled to welcome our new #Escada face!' but Friday was the first time the actual product was seen in the model's hot hands.
Meanwhile, on Thursday Miranda used Easter as a good excuse to post a racy video of herself.
She took to Instagram with a sultry snippet of her new Love Magazine spread in which she writhes around amid collection baskets filled with Easter eggs.
‘Sneak peak of my new Easter video for @thelovemagazine by @kegrand Shot by @seanthomas_photo,’ she captioned the social media post.
Kris Jenner looks great in tight leather trousers as she visits tobacco shop two days after hospital
Kris Jenner was hospitalised for 'internal pain' on Wednesday, but she appeared back on track by Friday.
The 58-year-old momager cut a very hip figure as she stopped by Dementia smoke shop in Los Angeles' Sherman Oaks suburb.
Kris, who was perhaps buying a gift for someone special, was clad in a clingy pair of black leather trousers and a stylish black jacket tailored to her figure.
Hip and healthy: Kris Jenner looked amazing as she stepped out in black leather trousers to visit Dementia smoke shop in LA's Sherman Oaks area on Friday
She also had on a black top that seemed moulded to her body, along with spiked black leather boots that added a punk-rock look to the ensemble.
Kris emerged from the store wearing tinted shades and a wide smile as she clutched her purchases along with a chic animal print handbag.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star no doubt had her family concerned earlier this week after she began experiencing internal pains and went to a hospital in Thousand Oaks where she had 'a scan for precautionary reasons,' E! News reported.

James Franco is shirtless in another bedroom selfie... day after he calls theater critic a 'little b****'
James Franco has been sharing some very revealing photos lately. On Friday he shared yet another of himself shirtless in bed, this time holding an apple slice.
This comes the day after the 35-year-old berated New York Times critic Ben Brantley, calling the venerable reviewer a 'little bitch' in a scathing tweet.
The Pineapple Express star made his first appearance on a Broadway stage Wednesday in the revival of Of Mice And Men, alongside Chris Dowd and Leighton Meester.
Apple slice anyone?: James Franco has made a habit of sharing shirtless selfies from bed, such as this latest one from Friday morning
At least he put a robe on: The social media devotee posted this shot from his home on Friday
While the show opened to mostly glowing notices from publications such as Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, the theater community's paper of record, The New York Times, was less enthusiastic.
The critique was hardly a pan however. In fact, Brantley seemed instead to be rather neutral on the play's charms.
'Such responses may bedevil you as you settle in for the respectable, respectful and generally inert revival of John Steinbeck's 'Of MIce and Men,' he wrote in regards to the play's familiarity.
'The presentation is lucid, stately and neutral,' Brantley continued.

They must be the hardest working leggings in showbusiness.

Early start: Kim began the day with a pilates class
The stretchy material clung valiantly to her famously plump posterior, which the reality star has furiously denied was enhanced by implants.
Kim teamed the leggings with a simple workout outfit of a T-shirt, zipped sweater and scarf as she braved the early morning chill.
Arriving for her pilates class in Los Angeles, she hid her make-up free face beneath sunglasses, and tied her hair back.
Can't hide this! Kim revealed the full expanse of her beach bum on holiday in Thailand last week

While there Kim revealed her behind in all it's curvy glory in a series of tiny bikinis.

At least 15 civilians have been killed in a suicide bombing by suspected Islamist militants in north-east Nigeria, officials say.
Six of the attackers also died in the explosion, which took place on the outskirts of the city of Maiduguri, a defence ministry spokesman said.
Authorities said the Boko Haram group was behind the assault.
At least 1,500 lives have been claimed in the restive north-eastern region this year, according to latest figures.
Half of those killed were civilians, Amnesty International said in a reportreleased on Monday.
The organisation blamed both "an increase in attacks by Boko Haram and uncontrolled reprisals by Nigeria's security forces" for the high death toll.Militant stronghold
Tuesday's explosion happened when a militant blew up a vehicle near a checkpoint in Borno state, the defence ministry said.
The blast took place as soldiers were trying to foil the militants' attempt to drive several vehicles with explosives into a petrol station, spokesman Brig Gen Chris Okulade told journalists.
"Three explosive-laden vehicles were demobilised by shots fired at them by soldiers at the checkpoint," he said.
But a fourth car exploded, apparently set off by one of the militants.
Boko Haram was launched in Maiduguri in 2009, with the aim of setting up an Islamic state.
A state of emergency was declared in three north-eastern states last year to help the military crush the insurgency.
However, the militants have stepped up attacks in recent months.
The violence has forced some 250,000 people from their homes so far this year, according to Nigeria's relief agency.
More than three million people are said to face a humanitarian crisis.
Two fans of the singer allege she's partially responsible for the waiting line that grew so raucous when the show's doors opened that they suffered injuries worthy of hospital care. The duo is also suing Chicago's United Center and Live Nation Entertainment
Myself and NY are childhood friends. When she posted this photo three years ago on Facebook, I covered my face in 'shame' while planning the perfect revenge! Lol! Well, it has now come in handy, as it gives us the perfect opportunity to jump on the Surulere train. #FollowFollowTinz #
This our Surulere photo was actually taken in 1993 at the rave of the time studio in Surulere, Le Fayts (*spell check), and the same year Kepy and NY's first daughter, Inyang, was born.
Above is Keppy Ekpenyong too, with his wife and daughter.
This is a nostalgic and 'proud momma' moment for me...we all go back a long way and I babysat this pretty chicka in the middle righ' 'ere! #OriginalSurulere

Finally, I must also use this opportunity to commend Keppy, one of Nollywood's originals, for still being able to make an impact after over two decades in the industry. Keppy's fluency in spoken and written English is effortless and that's the first thing about him that stands out. Read Nollywood legend, Uncle Pete Edochie's remarks regarding Kepy's eloquency here. That is a very powerful endorsement and I hope it encourages others to follow suit.

This is the first time I am blogging this year. I have been crazy busy for the past 9 months writing a very important project, and I try not to get distracted when I am in this mode. I am composing a 'Highlights Of 2013' post next in which I will fill you in as much as I can on a few things that I had no time to blog about. I have hardly had time for blogs also, but occasionally glance through some of my favourite ones when I can. I just stumbled across a video that Toke Makinwa made (below) about keeping the vagina healthy and I have mad respect for her for broaching the 'taboo' subject, albeit in a tongue in cheek manner.
This is a very serious topic, so I have decided to take time off my very busy schedule to continue from where Toke stopped and tackle it. I absolutely cannot stand dirty or unhygienic people and never forget my 'encounters' with such people. As embarrassing as this may seem, ladies, this cannot be ignored, so please pay careful attention to my hygiene tips below; I will try to be as detailed as I can.
(1). The vagina is not supposed to have an offensive odour. If it does, please visit your gynaecologist, for you most likely have an infection.
(2). Please do not wash your vagina with perfumed soaps, Femme Fresh etc and do not douche; or else you will get Bacterial Vaginosis (BV) and although it is not sexually transmitted, it stinks like rotten fish. When using soap to wash your backside and around the vagina etc, be careful not to allow soap into the vagina. Rinse the soap off first, then use water and Aqueous cream to wash your vagina. Aqueous cream is very cheap and can be found in all pharmacies in London...pharmacies in Nigeria should have them too.
(3). First of all, try and form the habit of doing a number two before you have your shower and in your own environment/comfort zone. NEVER EVER do a number two and use dry tissue to wipe and pull your knickers back up and feel like it's all good! Gosh! Wash your bottom very well with soap and water EVERY TIME you do a number two. I don't trust wipes to do the same job; they should only be used in emergency situations and if you're not at home, you shouldn't be comfortable until you go home and wash. If you are in a hurry and don't have time to undress, then sit across your bathtub and use your shower nozzle to wash...the same way you sat on the toilet to do your business...so it shouldn't be that hard.
(4). After peeing, please don't just wipe with dry tissue. After wiping yourself, please wet some tissue with water and wipe again.
(5). When you're on your period, try and wash every time you change your sanitary pads or at least three times a day...you no need angry craw craw to add to the already annoying 'bloody' discomfort...abi? Ehen!
(6). Shave shave shave...as in korede (gorimakpa)! At least once a month...maybe after your period. Please I beg you, shave! Okay, for people that don't really want to be too clean shaven, trim down very well. Don't mind those freaky men that get turned on by all sorts of unhygienic ish...if he tells you to keep a bush and you smell of stale urine, he will be the same one to poke jibes at you. Sex isn't meant to be dirty IMO, so he can find a villager to fulfil his unhygienic desires.
Now for underarm odours...or as my friend puts it...those that smell dimkpa dimkpa (whatever that means, lol):
(1). The first rule is to always keep your underarms clean shaven.
(2). After you shower, use a good deodorant...I recommend Sure and if you are extra sweaty, use Sure roll on first and when it dries, use Sure spray again. It is very unattractive to have underarm sweat patches and I believe following this particular advice can prevent them.
Finally, to prevent mouth odours:
(1). If you have closed teeth like myself, then you MUST floss everyday or ban meat from your diet if you don't want your mouth to smell like SHIT. Floss before you brush and pass water through your teeth to ensure that no food particles are left.
(2). Scrape your tongue very well until you can even see how clean it looks.
(3). Brush teeth and tongue very well with a good fluoride toothpaste and keep passing water through your teeth as you do so and gargle.
(4). Gargle with a good mouthwash and pass through your teeth.
Don't forget your hair too. Keep it nice, clean and sweet smelling.
If you practice all these hygiene tips and any part of your body emits an offensive odour, conk me ten times wherever you see me! Ehen...now you can go off and buy the most expensive Gucci bags and you will not be yabbed by me...(okay that was a Pinocchio)...erm...NOT! Lol.
Have a nice hygienic weekend all!!! ;)
