Nick Cannon Snaps Selfie From Hospital Bed: ‘I Gotta Stop Running My Body To The Ground'

But first, let's take a selfie.

And Nick Cannon did just that Wednesday when he posted a photo of himself from a hospital bed.

The "America's Got Talent" host posted a lengthy message to fans, vaguely explaining a bit of backstory on what landed him in the hospital in the first place.

"Don't worry, temporary pit stop...Sometimes I can be a little too bull headed and stubborn. I gotta stop running my body to the ground," he wrote.

"I be wanting to grind nonstop but the engine can't run on fumes. On the low though, I really think I'm a super hero ... Now I'm not saying I'm Batman, but I am saying nobody has ever seen me and Batman in the same room together. LOL #ImGood."

A source tells E! News that his hit show is currently on hiatus until August, so there will be no changes to production.

While it's unclear exactly why Cannon is in the hospital, the father of twins has been very outspoken about living with lupus over the years.

In an interview with HuffPost Live, the 34-year-old explained that his illness "actually drives me."

"I just want to get out there and continue to educate and be that pillar in the community to say, 'Hey, well he's doing it and he's strong when he does it.' So I feel like it's given me new purpose on this Earth, so I embrace it wholeheartedly."
