R&B/pop diva Janet Jackson was taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Monday after battling the flu, according to the singer's representative Patti Webster.

"Janet did go to the hospital last night due to the fact she's been suffering from this flu that's kicked a lot of people's behinds," Webster told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "She was never admitted and she is fine."

Jackson is reportedly feeling better, but the 41-year-old singer will not be appearing on this weekend's 'Saturday Night Live,' as previously scheduled. "The main prescription to get over this flu is rest -- and that's what she has to do," Webster told People.
