Behind the Scenes with Imelda May - VIDEO

Imelda May talks about performing with back pain

THE Irish Queen of rockabilly, Imelda May, has revealed she performed with excruciating back pain for years – a fact she has kept hidden from the world. At some of her gigs the star would even play with a back-brace hidden under her dress. She told the Sunday Independent: "I had back problems as a kid. Then I fell on my bum at my sister's 50th birthday. I had a collapsed disc. Then I was up to my eyes on some painkillers. I remember once in Spain taking the wrong painkillers," Imelda added. "There is one that you take two of and another painkiller that you take one that is stronger. I got them mixed up and took two of the stronger painkillers. I fell asleep under a bench and I was on stage in half an hour. I was conked out. I was drinking cans of coke and espressos like there was no tomorrow," she laughs. BIM:  Recently, it was reported that Lisa Marie Presley had to cancel her tour dates due to back pain. So it seems THE Queen of Rockabilly, Ime

ABC's Nashville actor Chip Esten @ 2014 White House Correspondents' Dinner

Patty Hanson, left, and Chip Esten arrive at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner at the Washington Hilton Hotel, Saturday, May 3, 2014, in Washington. (Photo by Evan Agostini/ Invision/ AP) ABC's Nashville actor Chip Esten and his wife Patty Hanson attended the White House Correspondents' dinner on Saturday, May 3, 2014. Chip who plays the dreamy Deacon on Nashville is THE break out star of the show. More so than Connie Britton or even the lovely Hayden Panettiere. It's a shame that most publcity photos, CD and DVD covers feature only these women. Nashville is mostly watched by women and we watch for DEACON ! I'd buy ANYTHING with a picture of Deacon on it;)  Others who attended the event include Barbara Walters, Brad Paisley and wife Kimberly (who played Teddy's wife on Nashville), Duck Dynasty Willie Robertson, Katie Couric, Jessica Simpson and many more.
