Amy Winehouse is onto her second UK concert cancellation this week. Maybe all the recent praise from super divas like Elton John and Prince has gone to her head, or maybe it really was “exhaustion.” Either way, she was clearly in need of a drink since both times she was spotted hitting the bottle shortly after. Apparently her friendship with ex-boozer Kelly Osbourne has not scared her into living a tamer lifestyle. Those of you looking to see her when she finally arrives stateside this fall might have a better chance at getting a glimpse of the bee-hived Jewess if you spend that ticket money on a round of drinks at the bar. Sounds like someone might actually go to rehab…yes, yes, yes. –Sophie Rosenblum
