Amy Winehouse: Visa Denied!

Amy Winehouse will NOT be performing at the Grammy Awards this Sunday in Los Angeles as her visa application to enter the United States was just rejected by the American Embassy in London.

DENIED!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago and although disappointed with the decision has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery,” reads a statement from her U.K.-based publicist. “There will of course be other opportunities and she very much looks forward to visiting America in the near future.”

Winehouse and her acclaimed “Back to Black” album is nominated for six Grammys this year.

    Amy Winehouse Back to Black Lyrics

    He left no time to regret,
    Kept his dick wet,
    With his same old safe bet.
    Me & my head high,
    And my tears dry,
    Get on without my guy.
    You went back to what you knew,
    So far removed
    From all that we went through.
    And I tread a troubled track,
    My odds are stacked,
    I go back to black.

    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her
    And I go back to
    I go back to us

    I love you much
    It’s not enough
    You love blow and I love puff
    And life is like a pipe,
    And I’m a tired penny rolling up the walls inside.

    We only said goodbye with words
    [Back to Black lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com

    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her
    And I go back to…
    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her
    And I go back to…
    Black
    Black
    Black
    Black
    Black
    Black
    Black
    I go back to…
    I go back to…

    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her
    And I go back to

    We only said goodbye with words
    I died a hundred times
    You go back to her
    And I go back to black

    WOW

    Question for Americans

    Was she denied a working visa because she would be preforming?

    I’m going on holiday to LA & NY in May and my travel agent said that I don’t need a visa cause I will only be there for 10 days.

    If I don’t need a visa then can’t she just attend but not perform?

  • Rachel

    Whoops I ment

    “Was she denied a working visa because she would be performing?”

  • !?!Queen12!?!

    That sucks and number 14 was it nesary to writ so much of nothing??

  • Diva
  • anon

    She sounds like Lauryn Hill. Anyone else think so?

  • Lara

    Rachel,

    Where are you from,UK? I think it differs for each country, most countries need a visa but I know for example you won’t need a Visa if you are a Canadian citizen. I would google and find more info if I were you.

  • lola

    Of course she was denied! She and her criminal hubby have a, well, criminal record.\

    MAN! SOME PEOPLE ARE BORN BEAUTIFUL AND HAVE A TO GO TO REHAB AND THEY CAN GET AWAY WITH IT MAYBE, BUT IF YOU’RE BORN PLAIN UGLY!!!!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!

  • George

    Oh, good! We don’t need any additional drug-addicted celebrities. Our quota has been filled already!

    Re: Visa requirement – you need one if you are going to work. If you are just visiting for a brief time, I don’t believe you’ll need one.

  • Helena

    Shame, I was anticipating her performance at the Grammys! Damn you, American Embassy!

  • Mia

    serves her right smack head

  • Rachel

    Thanks Laura and George for your replies.

    I’m not from the UK (Aussie) and I double checked with two different travel agents and they both said if your just visiting not working then you don’t need one unless you stay longer than 3 months so I’m sweet =).

    But I still don’t get why Amy couldn’t just go to the awards but not perform. As far as I know she doesn’t have a criminal record so it does seem a bit unfair.

  • lily

    And RIGHTFULLY SO. This crackhead skank doesn’t need to be collecting royalties. Bi-t-ch needs to stay in rehab.

  • lily

    and i bet she messes up via satellite too.

    2 weeks is NOT enough time to “recover” from Crack, cocaine, heroin,meth, ecstasy and whatever else she is on.

    She should just concentrate on her health. We will all understand the absence.

    Get well AMY.

  • anom.

    Grammy will be boring without the best singer of the world!

  • karma

    i agree with #10. i hope she wins all six grammys, she deserves them. she might be battling her demons but, she is talented and one of a kind. and also because she would shut the mouths of the people that call her trainwreck and other mean names. good luck amy!

  • awshuck

    What a pity, she’s probably one of the most talented singer to have emerge in a long time :(

  • +greenpeace+

    i love her album altho it’s too bad she’s a crackhead. hope she get better soon….

  • http://www.conneryweb.de/?betteln=cloudy&ref=cloudy !!!

    @Rachel: You don’t need a Visa for the USA if you are planning to stay less than 3 months. It’s different if you are planning to work there of course, but you only need a tourist Visa if it’s more than 3 months.

  • cristine

    it’s sad the way she’s destroying herself she doesn’t harm anybody but herself

  • kaylie

    why do the commercials keep saying shes going to perform tomorrow?

  • alemba

    she sucks
