Amy Winehouse Needs to Check Into 'Rehab'

Amy Winehouse, the turbulent diva of British pop, has been discharged from hospital after collapsing from a suspected drugs overdose.

The wayward Winehouse, 23, was given an adrenaline shot and had her stomach pumped at London's University College Hospital on Tuesday.

She was admitted in the early hours of the morning shortly after being nominated in three categories at the MTV Video Music Awards.

The two time Ivor Novello Award winner, who has admitted using cocaine and marijuana, was visited by her husband Blake Fielder-Civil and her father before leaving the hospital via a back entrance on Tuesday evening.

This latest set back has meant that Winehouse has had to cancel yet another gig. She was due to perform at the Oya music festival in Oslo, Norway. Organisers were told at the last minute that she had pulled out, and they were given "no explanation".

The singer, whose biggest hit is Rehab, has a reputation for hard drinking. But in a recent interview, she put her habit of cancelling gigs down to being a perfectionist. "I know it's last-minute and a bit irresponsible. But I'm a perfectionist and would rather reschedule a show than do it half-heartedly," she said.
