Joshua Bassett is in hospital recovering from surgery for an unspecified health problem.
Just hours after releasing his new single “Lie Lie Lie”, the 20-year-old performer was stunned when he posted a video on Instagram on Thursday, January 14th in a hospital bed and gown. He stated that he had had surgery that night after severe pain and was staying there to rest and recover.
“welp … not the first place I assumed I’d be on my Lie Lie Lie Release day … the emergency room !! (before you ask, no, it’s not covid.)”, Joshua signed the video. “After an unfamiliar, uncomfortable feeling, times 10, had become the worst pain of my life, I thought I was just trying to sleep. After several, very, very ugly days and nights, I had no choice today but to. ” Hospital.”
The High School Musical: The Musical: The series star hailed hospital staff as “the cutest, most professional people” who “made me feel very safe.” He said that he would have more clarity about his condition in the morning, but judging by the fact that he was laughing from his bed in the footage, he appeared to remain in good spirits.
