Glastonbury

Thousands of fans converge on the Pyramid stage to witness the fabulous Amy Winehouse perform live and to find out if, as the gossip magazines say, she is indeed truly out of control. [BBC]
I can't believe they really had her play the festival this weekend. Check out some songs, including one where she descends into the huge crowd (and "punches fan"), in the videos below...

Amy Winehouse glastonbury 2008 Mr jones, rehab (punch)

LONDON, England (CNN) -- Amy Winehouse's first full U.K. show in seven months has been overshadowed by an incident in which she appeared to throw a punch at a fan in the front row.

The incident occurred during the troubled singer's performance Saturday at the Glastonbury Festival in front of around 80,000 people.

Stepping down into the pit between the outdoor stage and the audience during a rendition of "Rehab," Winehouse seemed to lash out at a member of the crowd before being gently escorted back to the stage by security staff.

Winehouse lashed out because someone grabbed her breasts, according to festival organizer Michael Eavis.

Winehouse's appearance at the legendary festival had appeared doubtful since she was hospitalized after collapsing at her London home earlier this month. [CNN]

There was a split second where Amy's flame was bright and she appeared to have the world at her fingertips. But then she took that flame, cooked a crack rock, and (literally and metaphorically) smoked her career.
crack is whack.

she has breasts?

The people who buy her records, play her songs on the radio, book her for performances such as Glasto are simply fueling the mess that is Amy Winehouse. She's a fricken nightmare... a tabloid's wet dream.

What's pathetic is worshipping a band like Radiohead, but having no humanity.

The only thing that rocked about that performance was Amy's crack rocks.

She performed at Nelson Mandella's 90th birthday party a few days ago I believe.

Quite odd that they had a violent, racist, crackhead perform there.

"crack is whack."

You mean 'wack'. 'Whack' is what mobsters do.

"she has breasts?"

Who let Stevie Wonder on the Internet?

she has no breasts. her body looks like two pieces of celery holding up a baloon, with a poodle on it's head.

Living legend. Absolutely unmatched.

How many of you actually saw this gig from start to finish? Thought not!

The truth is that she was ELECTRIC. Seriously good. Great singing, great songs, magnetic to watch.

The last 2 songs she went into the crowd. It's called entertainement. So what if there was a minor incident with some jackass.

But the truth isn't what you want is it? You want to believe she was crap even though she was stunning.

that was a punch? i was expecting some crazy björk shit.
