One of our brightest writers, actress Carrie Fisher was cutting loose and having fun on what appeared to be a gay men's cruise ship, singing karaoke style in an informal setting.

Except someone recorded her and the Daily Mail proclaimed Fisher was having a "bizarre" cruise ship experience.

Really? Fisher has always been up front about her struggles with bipolar disorder, and seemed to be having fun with her friends on stage in a very informal and quasi-private sing along with a small audience.

Now it is reported that Fisher was taken to hospital for treatment following this event.

According to TMZ, a rep for the actress attributed the whole ordeal to Ms Fisher's ongoing battle with the mental disorder after a video of her appearance surfaced online.

In the video Fisher is on a small stage aboard a Holland America Eurodam ship in the Caribbean, with her dog having an accident on stage while she sang.

Carrie appeared on stage as a 'surprise' celebrity guest and after her discharge from the hospital, the rep told TMZ, "There was a medical incident related to Carrie Fisher’s bipolar disorder. She went to the hospital briefly to adjust her medication and is feeling much better now."
