They tried to make Amy Winehouse go to rehab and she said yes, yes, yes ... but not before stopping at at Meadway Food and Wine in Southgate, North London to buy a miniature bottle of Smirnoff. Somehow we can picture it.
"She seemed out of it," an onlooker tells The Sun.
Somehow we can picture that as well.
"She was stumbling about, slurring words. I was shocked to see her buy vodka so early in the day, and even more shocked to see her knock it straight back."
The singer's rep tells The Daily Mail that Amy Winehouse checked into rehab because "she wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and wants to get an assessment. She will remain at The Priory on doctors' advice."
Wonder if the doctors advised easing the transition with that Smirnoff.
This isn't Winehouse's first stint in rehab: the singer sought treatment in 2008 to treat her addiction to drugs and alcohol. Clearly that worked well.
