No, no, you read that correctly, Amy Winehouse’s career has been put on ice, rather than smoking ice as she has done in the past. After last weekend’s disastrous car crash performance in the Serbian capital, Belgrade, on the weekend, the next two shows in Istanbul and Turkey were canned.
However, in the most recent development, her whole European tour has been cancelled while her despairing management try to drag her back to rehab to try and make it work. According to a statement issued by her management, “Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen.”
Local media dubbed the concerts a ‘scandal’ and the ‘worst ever gig in Belgrade’ after Winehouse stumbled around the stage, slurred and forgot her lyrics, proceeding to get her backing band to fill in for her at times.
