To combat her obvious drug addiction, Amy Winehouse has finally decided to make the decision to check herself into a drug rehabilitation center. The announcement came just days after the 24-year-old singer was pictured in British tabloid The Sun inhaling fumes from a small pipe. Police have launched an inquiry into the matter.
“Amy decided to enter the facility today [Thursday, January 24th 2008] after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors,” Universal Music Group said in a statement. “She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction,” the statement said.
Winehouse plans on going through the whole rehab process, and has every intention of performing at the 50th annual Grammys this February. As much as I joke and poke fun of Amy, drug problems are pretty serious, and we’ve all seen what they lead to … death. No one deserves to die like that. So on behalf of T2W, I’d like to offer my support to Amy in hopes that she realizes that her life and career are very important, and doing drugs isn’t the answer to solve whatever she’s going through right now. Get well soon, Amy!
