"Amy Winehouse is, sadly, as messed up as she's ever been. She stumbled onstage and started wailing and skatting to replace forgotten lyrics," says a photog hired to shoot her "comeback" show in St. Lucia.
Amy's been living in the Caribbean for several months, supposedly working on a new album, and looking a little better than her time last year in London. Island Records booked her to play at its 50th anniversary party, but rumor has it that execs have refused to release the all-reggae album she has written. In post on Street Carnage today, photographer Jamie-James Medina — who attended the St. Lucia Jazz-Fest Amy headlined — says that she's not exactly on the road to recovery. And she forgot the lyrics to "Rehab".
Here's some more of his report:
Locals in the crowd…told me how it easy it was to get drugs on the island and how Amy had been spotted out and about, railing in public…She wore a tiny blue skirt, which showed her knickers every time she bent over for a drink, which was at least 17 times. I later discovered she has a guy whose main job is to fill up her glass with rum and coke. What a great job to have in this economy…When she got bored of doing a few messy ska covers…she cut her band off and removed her shoes before blabbing incoherently to the crowd. Then she spat chewing gum at them…the crowd began to boo. Amy walked off in a rage.
