LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell remains hospitalized but alert and "has her full senses," her official website said Tuesday, contrary to media reports that she had slipped into a coma.

Mitchell, 71, who was taken to a Los Angeles-area hospital last month after being found unconscious in her home, is not in a coma and is expected to make a full recovery, her website said.
