Now, apparently, they've taken a vacation to get away from the "drugs in London." Apparently they don't sell them anywhere else.

I find this lady wholly ridiculous, mostly. I can't take anyone with hair like that seriously. And it's not like people are force-feeding her drugs. She started on her own sometime. She sounds depressed and confused, but mostly delusioned and in desperate need of a straitjacket.

Hmmm. I met Amy Winehouse a couple of weeks ago. She was small.

Did you seriously meet her?

And yeah, I hear she's especially dainty.

You would be, if you were anorexic, wouldn't you?

Sorry, Leonie, I'm a big fan of hers and I'm genuinely worried about her, and I didn't particularly make this thread for people to gawk and comment about problems nobody knows anything about.

Alas, it's the internet.

Her dad spoke to Radio 1 this morning and confirmed that almost all of the shit that's been written about her lately isn't true. He also said that she's put on some weight lately and said she feels fitter. (She put on a stone, and it actually shows.) But he also said unfortunately when one has a dependancy and feels "better" momentarily, they feel like it's ok to go out for drinks or indulge into their addiction.

He seems like a pretty wise man, and so does her mother. What happens to these people!?

I don't see why I can't express an opinion. I'm not a fan of hers at all, but I still think that the situation she's in is sad. That said, I feel the same way about her substance abuse as I would about anyone else's - you got yourself into it somehow.

As far as I knew, she'd admitted to being anorexic. I haven't made a study of it, admittedly, but I thought she'd spoken about it.

No need to get upset with me, really.

I'm not upset at you personally, just peoples' general attitude towards celebrities when they have problems like this. Would suck to be famous with any kind of problem.

It's still a choice, though. Being famous is. Doing drugs is. If she chooses both, then the consequences are hers to deal with. The press' response to it all is quite predictable.

AMAZING comeback at the Mercury Awards. She's put on weight and her voice was in top form.

Edit: AND!! she fixed the gap in her teeth.

I liked the gap...less celebrities should get them fixed to give us gap-toothed freaks people to look up to.

I have to bump this for the sake of the intrigue...

She went on vacation while her husband rots in jail....WITH her ex-boyfriend.



Ouch. And also, she's blonde now.

Haha, yes. She wouldn't be Amy without it though.

She seems to be doing a lot better right now. She's staying with her family right now and her dad's always in the paparazzi photos with her for the most part. He's always talked about getting her cleaned up and how he doesn't like Blake.

I hope she gets straightened out. It's sad to see talent go to waste.

Amy Winehouse has been singing with her dad to improve her self-confidence.

The troubled singer - whose husband Blake Fielder-Civil is currently in prison on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice - performed on several occasions with 57-year-old Mitch at parties at her London home in the run-up to Christmas.

Mitch is now hoping it will give Amy the boost she needs to perform at next month's Grammys, after being nominated for six awards.

A source said: "Amy had her fair share of troubles in 2007, and she's still dealing with Blake being in prison. But her little parties at home have given her quite a boost.

"She often has friends round for drinks and inevitably most of the time she ends up singing. One night Mitch joined in and Amy loved it. They had a great giggle and it really made her feel good about herself so Mitch wants to repeat the experience as often as possible."

Amy recently returned from a New Year holiday in Mustique and her family are desperate for her to put her troubles behind her and focus on her career.

The source added to Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "Amy is settling back into London life after her trip to Mustique but Mitch hopes she can keep in high spirits.

"With the right preparation she should be able to light up the forthcoming award ceremonies with her stunning voice and remind people what she does best."

The prestigious Grammys take place on February 10.

Not exactly sure how reliable that story is, but I hope it's true. If she wants to perform at the grammys, she really needs to get into shape for it. Mentally and vocally.

There was an article on this paper here titled "Place your bets on Amy's death". It talked about this website called "when will Amy Winehouse die?" which presumably holds a poll for the exact date the singer would, I quote, "self-destroy completely". The winner - the one who picked the correct date - would be titled Mr. or Ms. Death (or something along those lines..) and win an Iphone.

Revolting. Not entirely sure if it's true, but still revolting.

I'm tired of seeing her all over the TV, internet, and in any newspaper I pick up to read. It wouldnt be so bad if she were some sort of wild, newfound talent - which she may have been at some point - but she has pissed it all away and doesnt deserve any of the attention she gets.

I dont care one way or the other. If she goes and gets cleaned up, thats great. But I still dont want to see her face all over the media. She's done nothing to deserve the attention and promotion it generates.
