Amy Winehouse’s Visa Denied; Will Not Attend Grammy’s

Published: Thursday 7th Feb 2008 by Sam
It has been announced that Amy Winehouse will not be attending the Grammy Awards on Sunday, as her visa request was turned down by the US Embassy. Check out the report via Yahoo News below:

The Outside Organization, which counts the troubled retro-soul sensation among its clients, said in an e-mail that Winehouse — who shot to fame with the autobiographical single “Rehab” — was disappointed but had been treated well by embassy staff.

“Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago and although disappointed with the decision has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery,” the Outside Organization said.

The statement didn’t say why her application was rejected. The U.S. Embassy in London declined to comment late Thursday. Shane O’Neill, Winehouse’s spokesman, said he had nothing to add to the statement.

The 24-year-old singer and her acclaimed “Back to Black” album are nominated in six categories at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday.

I guess it’s, somewhat, of a shame. There’s no doubt her past drug use had something too do with it. She’s fixing herself up now, which is what’s most important. The Grammy’s will come and go, but she only has one life.

Your thoughts?

    Oh no, that’s horrible. Poor Amy! I am a big fan of Amy Winehouse’s MUSIC. Her music is in a league of it’s own; It’s quality is out of this world. She definitely deserves to win atleast two Grammys on Sunday. Despite her image she knows how to make wonderful music, just like Britney.
