UPDATE: Amy Winehouse wants to save a bar

February 4th, 2008 // 58 Comments

Amy Winehouse recently lent her efforts to preserve The George Tavern a historic pub in London. Apparently an apartment development is planned that would ruin the bar’s 360-degree natural light. When approached by landlady Pauline Forster, Amy came up with the idea to sell T-shirts that say “Save The George.” She hasn’t been able to help lately since, well, she’s in rehab. That sort of puts a damper on the ol’ drinking. People reports:

“She’s not well, so nobody’s allowed to contact her,” Forster said. “I spoke to her on the phone twice before she went into rehab, and I’ve spoken to her father a couple of times. He told me I could write her a letter, so I sent a handwritten one and popped a t-shirt in the post.”

You know what’s always a smart move? And, really, you can’t miss with this one: Sending an alcohol-related T-shirt to a friend in rehab. I bet there was a card inside that reads: “Hope to see you soon! Drinks on me!” That’s just good manners.

NOTE: These are pictures of Amy taking a walk this morning outside of her rehab facility. She actually looks decrackified. That being said, how cold is it in England right now? I’m pretty much convinced Amy Winehouse would wear a mini-skirt while dog-sledding through the Antarctic.

UPDATE: During Amy’s walk she apparently renewed her visa because, according to Us Magazine, she’s going to the Grammys! Now we’ll get to see what a drug-free Amy Winehouse performance looks like. Will we understand her lyrics and what sober items will she pull out of her beehive? I’ve got my fingers crossed for a Gameboy.

  7. santas hat

    Her hair is full of secrets. And Snarf’s pizza.

    hey jimbo, pull my finger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Looks like there may be a new clutch of black widows being hatched in that nest she calls a hair-do any minute now…

  11. Hacklerf

    How cold is it here in London? FUCKING FREEZING!

  12. Wow, she hasn’t looked this good since the last rehab stint. What’s that? This is her first time? Oh… toothpick lookin’ ho…

  14. squab

  15. hot

    Oh. My friends told me she is on millionairefriends.com where Charlie Sheen found his new love there. I will check if it is true.

  16. grump

    why isn’t her hair blond and short anymore? do they do extensions in rehab now?

  17. This is what happens when weird science blows up in the microwave.
    Could anyone live up their name more?

  18. deaconjones

    my farts smell like semen.

    I hope the best for Amy. She got caught up in drugs and I hope she finally beats her demons. She has a beautiful soulful voice.

    PRAYING FOR AMY!

  21. Kevin

    She actually looks like she has a nice rack in those pics.

  22. She’ll be back on the streets, shooting up, smoking crack in no time. Seriously, if I had to look at that face in the mirror everyday I’d have overdosed by now..

  23. Jeff

    Nice rack.

    The only difference between crack addict Amy Winehouse and crack free Amy Winehouse is make-up. Amy’s still the same person underneath her clown face.

    She now cares that her face is aesthetically horrifying: She cakes the powder (pun), blush, whatever women use, all over her hook face to lessen the poor publics guttural aghast.

  25. p0nk

    Amy Winehouse sober at the Grammy’s. HAHAHHAHAHAA fish guy, you crack me up.

  26. nipolian

    Is William Shatner teaching her how to walk?

  27. cocker

    love u amy. u can beat the drugs honey. if u need a reason to stay clean look at ms. Spears. She lost her mind and Im sure u dont wanna end up like her. love u picolina.

  28. Southie

    Weird for her to be saving a bar, albeit the George (I’m guessing the old carriage house pub, not the one in Wanstead). However, the George is an awesome old pub… still, she left rehab for that?

  29. p0nk

    william shatner? i thought mickey rooney was trying to sell her life insurance.

  30. Ugliest Bird Legged Pig with Hideous Voice

    Damn. Why can’t this actrocity go far far away? What is it that other humanoids find engaging about this skank? I have listened to her several times and I find nothing at all entertaining. Ugly fake trashy boring nonentity.

  31. Her stylist is Stevie Wonder.

  32. MoronicShitney

    Looking like an Auschwitz reject – shame on you Amy.

  33. amma

    F! I need some pizza too Snarf;) Are these really pics from Amy in rehab?….’cause…correct me if I’m wrong…didn’t she have short bleach blonde hair like…three days ago? She got sober and wanted her beehive back?! I’m just questioning if these are really rehab pics…based on the hair, they look old. Now, where is that pizza?

  34. Captain PP

    p0nk – comment 29 – funny! I haven’t laughed that hard in a while!

  35. aeuwave

    i love the hair, amy. keep on bringing sexy back!

  36. Daddy? Don’t you think Amy looks much better now? Maybe you should try rehab? They always say it’s never too late…daddy??? Are you listening???

  37. mkell

    She still looks fucking ridiculous.

  38. is this the daughter of Elvira?

  39. zang

    She should take up a collection at the rehab. You just know everybody will kick in.

  40. EuroNeckPain

    I had some of her songs in my ipod and did not realize it was her because it was mixed with everything else and playing randomly. And I thought, wow, this is good, who can it be ? The lady is definitely very talented.
    After all, there are so many pretty girls who have little or no talent in the show business; having a counter example is good.

  41. my comment

    Great shoes.

    I hope she gets better.

  42. eww

    Gawd she’s gross looking.
    In these pictures she looks like a terribly ugly and terribly freaky alien version of Dita Von Teese gone bad. Yuck.

    TASTELESS chick

    Dear Amy,

    I love your shirt idea! Don’t you worry about these haters. You just keep talking about t-shirts.

    amy it’s always the drugs that destroy us…
    ALSO,I want to warn all Democrats and our OBAMA supporters…The Republican Right is out to get us again…They have found one of OBAMA”s college room mates (now a Republican) and as soon as OBAMA wins the Democatic nomination- they are going to pull “another Lewinski” on the American public…apperently OBAMA’s old roomie will admit to the PRESS that he witnessed OBAMA snorting & even dealing Cocaine to several of his close friends in their shared dorm room!!!…The Republican’s hope to sway the independent vote and the undecidedes with this shocker… They are betting that the fallout will put John Mc Cain over the top and will win him election for President.
    I think this may be a false rumour but Obama did admit his Cocaine Use and I think we have to take this admission by Obama very seriously…It may come back to bite him…if this roomate story is true I don’t think the Republican’s are going to leave this Drug issue alone!!!

    amy has to get off the drugs…

    #45. Many people have used cocaine in their lives… many people just experiment with it and then they drop it, some people don’t (especially in college… do you have any idea what kind of drugs you can buy?). You can’t judge someone by that and I’m sure that if they found out he was doing cocaine in the white house he would be forced to step down as president… not that I support him he doesn’t seem to know what he’s doing, he’s a bit of a joke.

    Anyway, I hope this chick gets better.

    Is Amy feeling lonely? I saw many celebs including her at the celebrity and millionaire dating site named”SearchingMillionaire.com”recently. seems they are feeling loney though they are famous.

    For someone who has a HUGE wig and/or weave, she actually keeps her hair fairly tidy and clean. As opposed to Britney, who ha the greasiest nastiest unkempt extensions I could imagine.

    Amy actually looks pretty good here compared to recent pics. Looks-wise, the rehab is definitely helping.

  49. joho777

    In the pics, Amy looks like they just hosed her off, and then repainted her makeup before steering her outside and propping her up for the cameras.

    Can you imagine being in rehab at the same place with Amy down the hall screaming her lungs out? The whole place must be like a 1950′s snake pit.

    What a trip! No wonder 95% of the patients hit the drugs again once they’re back on the streets.
