I really couldn't even begin to think about writing another celeb obit this week, and with Amy Winehouse's latest drug video, where she is allegedly smoking crack and taking Valium, she was headed for a very dark road. Luckily, her label has announced that the very talented singer has entered rehab.
"Amy decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors," said the statement from Universal Music Group. "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 six categories."
"Amy entered the facility by mutual agreement and continues to receive the full support of all concerned," the statement said. "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 fulfill 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."
The police, meanwhile, are still figuring out what to do with the very damaging video of the singer. "The video has been handed in to us and we are still deciding what action will be taken," a Metropolitan Police spokesman told People.com.
That can't be good, but at least she's getting help. Let's hope she stays there.
