NEW YORK (AP) -- Pop singer Jewel was injured when she was thrown from a horse at the Texas ranch of her boyfriend, rodeo star Ty Murray, the co-president of her record label said Wednesday.
Jewel, 27, broke her collarbone, her first rib and suffered bumps and bruises, Ron Shapiro, co-president at Atlantic Records, told The Associated Press.
Shapiro said the platinum-selling singer was vacationing at her boyfriend's ranch, about 90 miles southwest of Dallas, when she was thrown from the colt Wednesday.
"They've confirmed to me that nothing was life-threatening," Shapiro said. "But she is badly hurt."

Raphael tapes last show
NEW YORK (AP) -- Sally Jessy Raphael smashed her eyeglasses, but no tears flowed as she taped her daytime talk show's farewell episode.
"I thought it would be sad and it wasn't -- it was very happy," Raphael insisted Wednesday upon ending nearly two decades of daily TV appearances.
Her finale, with guests including the Four Tops and Dick Cavett, also featured video vignettes that showed her destroying her trademark red-frame eyeglasses in various humorous ways.
The finale is scheduled to air May 22.
