Amy Winehouse is no longer using drugs. According to her mom.
THG NOTE: In related news, Britney Spears has sworn off men.
Winehouse, the acclaimed and troubled singer, was hospitalized earlier this week after suffering a reaction to medication at her north London home with her father, Mitch, claiming his daughter's drink was spiked with ecstasy.
But according to the 24-year-old's mother, Janis Winehouse, the hospital visit was the result of something different - simple human error.
"The truth is that Amy ended up in hospital this week because she mixed up the medication that she's taking to help her come off drugs," she told the UK's Daily Mirror newspaper. "She took a wrong tablet."
Riiiiight. Come on, Janis and Mitch Winehouse. You can't even coordinate your ridiculous cover stories? That's Lying 101, for crying out loud.
The long-awaited reunion of Amy Winehouse and a street light.
Janis' absurd comments only got worse - Amy's recent diagnosis with lung disease has "encouraged her to steer clear of recreational drugs."
"I really don't think she's using now," she claimed. "Being diagnosed with the early stage of emphysema was a real jolt. A wake-up call."
So much so that she's only pictured smoking 2-3 times a day instead of the usual 20. Such enormous progress cannot be understated.
