Breaking News: Amy Winehouse says YES to rehab!

Posted by Dean Piper On January 24th, 2008

Here’s some good news – Amy Winehouse has finally checked herself into rehab within the last few hours. Read the statement below that just dropped from her PR firm minutes ago…..
I give it until the weekend before she’s out walking around. I hope gets clean this time.
Universal Music Group Statement: Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse’s planned appearance at the NRJ Awards in France on Saturday has been cancelled as the artist has entered a rehabilitation clinic.

Amy decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors.  She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction and prepare for her planned appearance at the Grammy Awards. She is nominated in an incredible 6 categories.

Amy entered the facility by mutual agreement and continues to receive the full support of all concerned.

Amy is the most talented and important musical artist of her generation and has made huge strides on her road to recovery.  Universal Music Group wants nothing more than to see her take the time she needs to come back to full health and fulfil her incredible potential with the label.

The label has always had the best interests of Amy at heart and has been guided by her family and doctors in the last few months as to the best direction to take.

All concerned feel that Amy must put her health before all other considerations and will be by her side whenever and wherever they are needed.
UPDATE: Just to let you know. I’m wearing a slogan t-shirt today that reads: “I’m back like cooked crack”. How very appropriate.
