Amy Winehouse back to beach
Amy Winehouse is going back to the Caribbean.
The 'Rehab' singer - who spent more than six months on the island of St. Lucia last year - is flying out to Jamaica later this month but has been warned by her record label not to treat the trip as a holiday.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "She'll fly out next week. She is really excited about going back because she loves the Caribbean so much.
"But she's been told it's not a party. She has to work."
Amy, 26, previously took an extended break in St. Lucia from December 2008 to July last year, and enjoyed herself so much she even launched a residency bid to stay on the island permanently.
Troubled Amy, who was overcoming drug problems during her time on the island, had been asked to work on her much-delayed third album during her stay but recordings failed to materialise and
concerns were raised about Amy's drinking after guests at the luxury resort she was staying at complained about her rowdy behaviour.
Attempts to get her career back on track were disastrous, with her performance at the St. Lucia jazz festival in May abandoned halfway through, reportedly after being booed by the crowd, although the official reason given was adverse weather conditions.
It was also while Amy was in St Lucia that then-husband Blake Fielder-Civil started a successful divorce bid, giving his reason as her infidelity after pictures of her cavorting with another man were published.
Amy and Blake are believed to have since reconciled their romance.Posted on 4 Feb 2010 10:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
