Wino To Become Teacher!
Beleaguered walking beehive Amy Winehouse is to offer her top-knotch teaching skills to the children of Caribbean isle, St Lucia.
As everyone knows, the tequila-loving singer has made the sunny holiday resort her new home in 2009 and is officially there in a work capacity to record her third album. Her label bosses are currently hemorrhaging cash on a fully-functioning studio in one of her two rented villas, FYI.
However, as we reported last week, very little recording is taking place - unless by recording you mean waking up and having six tequila shots for breakfast, a crate-load of rum for brunch, a winery for lunch and a brewery for dinner.
But resourceful Ames is not to be deterred by the above and putting the actual recording off again, has announced plans to lend her wobbly talents to teaching the young (uh-oh).
Her spokesman confirmed: "There are community works planned in St Lucia that Amy will be involved in, but they will be music-based projects for the island's youth."
One of her bezzo mates, Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace, added: "She is the mummy in our friendship group. She's really like a mother hen and likes to look after everyone. I know that's not how she comes across, but everyone who knows her, or has ever met her, says the same about how wonderful she is.
"Although she's had problems with her addiction to drink and drugs, she's such an amazing, good person with a kind heart and a fantastic listener."
Just lay off the grog, Ames - for the kids’ sake!
