Having spent the last month-plus on "vacation" in the island paradise of St. Lucia, recovering addict Amy Winehouse is apparently planning a change of scenery.
She's moving to island drug paradise Jamaica.
The "Rehab" singer, 25, wants to record her hugely-delayed third album in the Caribbean nation where illegal drugs are known to be widely available.
Moreover, her record label will apparently foot the bill for her recording sessions, which are likely to run into tens of thousands of pounds.
Amy has been on holiday in nearby St. Lucia since before Christmas and has told the Island Records brass she does not want to return to England.
There, estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil is trying to divorce her.

A source said: “Amy Winehouse is having the time of her life on her St. Lucia holiday and doesn’t want it to end. She is looking and feeling so much better and is worried about the bad influences waiting for her back in London. She has written a big chunk of her new album and has told bosses she wants to go to Jamaica to record it.”
The record label is “fully aware” that Jamaica is awash with drugs like crack cocaine and cannabis. But the source said: “They are keen to accommodate [Amy Winehouse] as long as she keeps getting better and carries on working.”
Hey, whatever works. Producer Mark Ronson said: “She’s got time pencilled in at a studio abroad soon.” Just don't use a pen, though, Mark.
