Amy Winehouse Collapses Again
Hot mess Amy Winehouse succumbed to the tropical heat and collapsed (again) while holidaying in St Lucia earlier this week. The singer was treated in a local hospital before being released. That's the official story, anyway.
According to a spokesperson: “She fainted at home (in St Lucia) and they took her in for observation, mainly to do with her medication to check everything was OK. They told her that she was dehydrated and needed to drink more water".
The less official version is exactly what you'd expect it to be. After all, most people don't dehydrate themselves to the point of collapse and hospitalisation. Not as far as we know. But hey, we're not doctors.
Winehouse is scheduled to perform her first show of 2009 at the St Lucia Jazz Festival on 8 May. The event has been running on the tiny Caribbean island since 1992 and tends to attract the rich and famous – the British colony is known for its very wealthy ex-pats and very high walls.
Meanwhile, back in the UK, Winehouse has obtained an injunction to prevent photographers from approaching or following her within a 100 metre radius of her London home. It'll be interesting to see how long that lasts - the British paparazzi aren't exactly known for their ethics. No official word on when her long awaited second album will be released, or if it’s even being made.
