Amy Winehouse Returns to That Place She Really Didn’t Want to Go

There are many reasons to be dubious about reports in sketchy U.K. tabloid the Sun, but the life of Amy Winehouse is so bizarre, we're inclined to buy this morning's report that the singer is back in rehab... and possibly stopped off for a bottle of vodka on the way. In other words, "They wanted me to go to rehab, I said no, no, no... OK, fine, shut up already, but I'm just gonna drink this first."

At least part of this story is accurate -- Winehouse's rep told Us Weekly the 27-year-old singer is indeed at London's Priory clinic because "She wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment." The other details are a little sketchier: A stumbly Winehouse allegedly popped into a hair salon, puked in the bathroom, and then confirmed what she'd done by announcing, "I just puked all over your bathroom." Then she supposedly stopped into Meadway Food and Wine in North London's Southgate neighborhood, bought a bottle of Smirnoff, and downed it on the spot.

Paging Snoop Dogg: It is not too late to help this woman!
