In response to a fan’s tweet about her birthday, Oprah said, “In bed with an ice pack most of today. Moved a bushel of roses sent by @tylerperry and sprained a back muscle.”

Perry later expressed on Facebook that he “felt so bad” about the injury. “I like to send really large flower arrangements to people for whatever occasion. Well, I sent one to Oprah yesterday for her birthday. She strained her back picking it up. No joke! Feel better Oprah. Happy birthday. Sorry.”

Perry later joked that for Oprah’s next birthday he’d only be “sending her one rose.”

Oprah then replied to Perry’s apology, writing, “No need to feel bad. Love the roses and got an extra day in bed. Can you say #icepack?”

Many believe Oprah had planned to spend her day lounging around anyway, so the back strain simply gave her a reason to stay in bed. Earlier that say day she uploaded a photo of her wearing pajamas while having lunch with her longtime boyfriend Stedman Graham.

“No plans to leave p.j.’s all day,” she wrote.

Clearly, the back strain made sure she really had no plans to leave. For someone as rich and wealthy as Oprah, though, one can imagine back strain is actually quite frustrating. After all, success grows from those who toil, and we all know how much Oprah toils away each day.

Earlier this week Oprah said she was adding the “finishing touches” to a commercial expected to air during the Super Bowl. Here’s to hoping the time in bed didn’t mess with her plans too much.
