Apparently Amy just cancelled her European tour.

I'll say it again...I hope she does not throw her talent away. She is the best female singer I've heard in too long a time.

Me too. The songs were good, but I liked the production on Back to Black a lot better.

I'm just not a fan of the jazz flute .

I really liked "Stronger Than Me".

Sexists can shove it

I listened to Back to black but I think Rehab just overshines everything else on the album. From all the nu-soul UK singers I prefer Joss Stone.

I previewed Frank on iTunes last nigh; only about half the songs sounded interesting to me, so I might just buy those, or I might skip it altogether for the time being. Back to Black was one of my favorite albums of this year, though. It's a shame to see things falling apart for her, but a lot of it sounds like bad choices on her part. I guess it's good that she canceled her shows for the rest of the year, given how poorly that one performance went a few weeks ago, but it's still too bad, because when she's on, she's got such a powerful voice.

When I asked my mom what CDs she wanted for Christmas, she said she didn't know the singer's name and started singing Rehab. It was so funny

She's just entered rehab. I wish her the best. She is so fantastically talented.

Amy Winehouse enters drug rehab program
Associated Press Writer

LONDON - Amy Winehouse, beset by allegations of substance abuse, entered a rehabilitation facility Thursday to battle drug addiction.

The announcement came just days after the 24-year-old singer was pictured in British tabloid The Sun inhaling fumes from a small pipe. Police have launched an inquiry into the matter.

"Amy decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors," Universal Music Group said in a statement.

"She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction," the statement said.

Winehouse, who is nominated for six Grammy Awards for her acclaimed "Back to Black" album, seems to be as famous for her drug problems as for her music. Since the album's U.S. release last year, she has canceled a slew of appearances amid reports of drug use.

The album's most popular song, "Rehab," references her struggles, and is a defiant anthem against entering a treatment facility.

"Amy is the most talented and important musical artist of her generation and has made huge strides on her road to recovery," the statement said.

Universal said it hoped Winehouse would "come back to full health and fulfill her incredible potential with the label."

The statement also indicated Winehouse still planned to attend and perform at the Grammys, to be held Feb. 10 in Los Angeles.

She canceled a scheduled appearance Saturday at the NRJ music awards ceremony in France, Universal said.

According to The Sun, video of Winehouse apparently using drugs was shot before she attended a court hearing to see her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, appear on charges of assault and lying to police.

Winehouse was photographed walking outside her London home last month wearing only a bra and jeans, with no shoes, looking distressed.

Am I the only one who is sick of hearing that fucking rehab song???

Every damn time one of those entertainment shows or news shows does a piece on her they always play it. Now that she is actually going into rehab (which I have a crazy feeling wont last) it will be non stop again

Did you all see the blonde dye job she gave herself recently? I saw someone mention online the other day that she'd dyed it back, which is good. It was nice she'd ditched the ratty hive, but yeesh.

I'm sick of hearing about her, period. Go to rehab, take care of yourself, and if you want to, put out a new album. If you don't feel like it, retire from the public eye and have a wonderful, sober life.

I like Back to Black, but sometimes I feel it's a little one-trick-pony. I'd like to hear what she'd come out with next if she decides to make more music. (I realize her first album wasn't like Back to Black, but I'm just kind of over the album.)
