After dominating the Grammys (winning five!) on Sunday, Amy Winehouse is back “on the road to recovery,” says her mom, Janis Winehouse.
“Well, it’s Amy coming back, she’s definitely on the way back,” Janis said in a new interview with Britain’s GMTV.
Winehouse, 24, delivered a polished performance via satellite at Sunday’s show — proof that she has already cleaned up her act a bit.
“As you saw, she looks good and it’s a case of she’s on the road – and that’s what it’s about – she’s on the road to recovery,” Janis said.
Amy Winehouse stole the show – even via satellite – at the Grammys.
The troubled R&B / soul sensation went to rehab last month after Britain’s The Sun released a video of her apparently smoking crack out of a pipe.
Her spiral into oblivion can be tied to Blake Fielder-Civil – her husband of about a year, and who she visited in jail yesterday. We hope he’s doin’ well.
While Amy’s mini-comeback and haul of trophies were the talk of the Grammys along with Kanye West’s performance, one past winner wasn’t thrilled.
Natalie Cole, who hasn’t been big since, oh, 1991, blasted the Grammy Awards for honoring the “Rehab” singer, claiming Amy doesn’t deserve her wins as “it sends the wrong message” to award a musician “in the midst of her stupor of drugs.”
First, Amy is at least trying to clean up.
Second, this is music, Natalie. We love Carrie Underwood to pieces, but she might be the only good girl in the entire industry. You want to bar everyone else? An award show in which she wins 87 of them might get a bit tedious.
