Is she or isn’t she? Today, Amy Winehouse‘s rep confirmed to UsWeekly that Winehouse, despite reports she’s entered rehab, will be performing at this Sunday’s Grammy awards. The singer, nominated in a whopping six categories — including record of the year, album of the year and song of the year — checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility on January 24th, following the release of shocking footage showing an obviously high Winehouse smoking crack.
To find out more about Winehouse’s sadly ironic song “Rehab,” check out our in-depth analysis on a hit that was created from an off-hand comment and a couple of hours. We’ve also got plenty of interesting info on Winehouse and her competition.
Here’s a new Amy Winehouse home video to brighten your day. In it, the singer continues her Self Destruction 2008 Tour by smoking from a crack pipe and talking about how she just took six Valium. The whole thing is recorded by a friend who then sold the video to the British tabloid The Sun, which should be a lesson to all you famous crackheads out there. If a pal is taping you inhaling/snorting/injecting/smoking/eating drugs, tell them to shut that sh*t off! Learn something from Amy Winehouse – something other than just drugs being bad, obvs. [The Sun]

Watching Amy Winehouse go from top of the charts to coked-up and bloodied was one of the saddest downward spirals of the year (Paris Hilton‘s demise, however, is another story). But it’s the end of the year, and we’ve run out of ways to turn her song “Rehab” into a witty pun that accentuates her actual need to get her ass locked up and detoxing, stat. In truth, the year of Winehouse has just made us feel kind of hopeless and sad. It’s no fun watching someone whose talent leaves you awestruck abandon their gifts for a full-blown drug addiction; it’s even worse when they’re doing it covered in blood. Let’s hope Amy’s New Year’s resolution involves less snorting and more self-care, and maybe a little bit of singing too.

Winehouse: Bloody Face, Slashed-up Hubby
Well, it was bound to happen. Unless Britney joins the army and goes to Iraq or runs for president, Amy has officially become the biggest celebrity mess of the year, with only thirteen days left in 2007. News is still breaking, but apparently the singer was arrested a couple hours ago in London for “perverting the course of justice.” This is the same charge brought up against her husband Blake, after he allegedly tried to bribe the witness in an assault case being brought against him with $400,000. Seeing as he’s like, a production assistant or something, it seems like Amy may be connected to that money somehow. Well, at least she can be close to her true love. She apparently is all ready to kill herself to if she can’t be with the guy, so I guess it all works out in the end. What a happy – albeit f*cked up – ending!

In a desperate attempt to reach her daughter, Amy Winehouse‘s mother has written an 1,100-word open letter, asking her daughter to get help. In the plea, appearing in The News Of The World (the American equivalent of The National Enquirer), Janis Winehouse explains she felt compelled to write to her daughter after seeing pictures of Winehouse wandering the streets in the early morning hours wearing a bra and jeans.
“All I wanted to do was rush into those pictures and wrap you up in a big,warm blanket,” said Janis. With pledges of home-cooking to fatten the emaciated Winehouse up and a request for her to pick up the phone, Winehouse’s mother made no reference to her daughter’s possible drug addiction. She did, however, mention she hopes Winehouse’s recently-incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil turns his life around. In the past week, Winehouse has canceled several tour dates, been photographed wandering the streets in her underwear and kept the company of one of England’s most notorious drug addicts, Pete Doherty.
