Amy Winehouse denied U.S. visa

Amy Winehouse won’t be performing at the Grammys after all. The U.S. Embassy turned down her request for a visa, according to the AP:

“Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago and although disappointed with the decision has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery,” The Outside Organization, which counts the troubled retro-soul sensation among its clients, said in a statement.

Apparently the U.S. feels we don’t need another manic celebrity on the loose terrorizing the countryside. Yeah, that’s right. I’m talking about you, Dakota Fanning. Please, for the sake of humanity, just eat all the papaya you want then fly off with your fellow bat-children. Don’t make me chase you with a broom. Oh God, she’s in my hair! Ew! Ew!
