Singer Billie Joe Armstrong, who had to cancel a show in Bologna, Italy, after being hospitalized, told MTV that he was still recovering from a stomach parasite. “I'm doing better. It was a little rough,” he said before performing at last week's Video Music Awards. “But when you get a parasite inside your body — I've always had a parasite inside my body. This time he decided to dance a little bit more.”
