Winston-Salem, NC– Maya Angelou is setting the record straight about her health after recent reports that she was in a Los Angeles, CA hospital.

“I’m celebrating 81-itis, and if I live to next year 82-itis,” said the world-renowned author and poet. “I’m doing very, very well.”

Late Saturday night, TMZ reported that Angelou was a no-show at an awards show in Los Angeles because she had to be taken to the hospital. Later, the website posted an update blaming the inaccurate information on the awards show organizers.

“It’s been a burden,” said Angelou, who expressed frustration with the poor reporting. “I have family in Europe and in Africa, and they have phoned me in tears trying to find out am I alright, am I alive.”

Serenus Churn, who pastors Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Winston-Salem, said Angelou called Sunday to address the rumors about her health. “She is an active member of our church,” he said. “She called to inform me that she was perfectly fine.”

Angelou attended an event at the Lovejoy Library in St. Louis Sunday afternoon. While speaking to reporters, she found some humor in the rumors. “I was anxious to come to St. Louis, but I wasn’t dying to come to St. Louis
