Do I need to put on my nurse costume and head to NYC to take care of LL?

JUST KIDDING!  I’m sure his lovely wife Simone Smith‘s got that covered.  Seriously, I hope that LL is okay.

LL Cool J said in a statement to People, “I know it’s disappointing to the millions of fans but my test came back positive for COVID, which means I’ll no longer be able to perform as scheduled at NYRE.  We were ready and I was really looking forward to ringing in 2022 in my hometown in a special way, but for now I wish everyone a healthy and happy New Year. The best is yet to come!”
