Winehouse's Visa Rejected!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaAmy Winehouse

mx0068647__opt.jpg

Even though she wanted to come to America for the Grammy Awards this weekend - she's nominated in six categories - Amy Winehouse will be forced to stay in rehab after being turned down by the U.S. Embassy in London.

And that's a good thing!

Wino's health is the priority right now, not collection awards.

The singer's publicist has released the following statement after the visa rejection:

"Amy Winehouse will not be performing at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony.

The singer has been invited to appear at the event on Sunday (February 10) after receiving an amazing 6 nominations for the prestigious awards.

Unfortunately, her application for a visa to enter the United States of America has been rejected at this time by the American Embassy in London.

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.

Amy has been treated well and fairly by the Embassy staff and thanks everyone for their support in trying to make this happen.

There will of course be other opportunities and she very much looks forward to visiting America in the near future."

Get well, Amy!

    Well i am a bit sad. It would have been great seeing amy at the grammys. especially now since shes looking soo much better!! and i would have LOVED to have seen an amazing sober comeback performance, but alas denied. BUT that means she will stay in rehab - and hopefully get all better. Thats more important.

    Reguardless, i hope she wins all the grammys
    i wish her the best
    because she IS the best!

    LOVE YOU AMY

    That sucks! All due to one pot conviction….wtf!

  62. blablabla says – reply to this


    62

    I'm glad she's clean, and I'm glad she's in rehab, but once again, US laws and their interpretation by its bureaucracy has proven how IRRELEVANT it can be. Why? BECAUSE IT CAN!!! Oh yea, let's keep a CLEAN Amy out of the US while our own celebrities continue to USE WITH IMPUNITY and other KNOWN drug users continue to come to the US and USE in the US! Oh yeah.

    US Immigration is a power unto itself and is accountable to no one (picture driving 5 mph over the speed limit in the backwoods of Georgia and being caught by the sherriff — and you KNOW what I'm sayin). This is the same department whose (again completely arbitrary) rules required the BEATLES to play as a backup band to a US musician before they would be allowed to play solo. It's called KISS MY ASS BECAUSE I CAN MAKE YOU!!!

    Amy, hope you're plannin lots of US tour dates to maka-de-casha. If not, then on your live-feed acceptance speech, TELL-EM ALL TO FUCK-OFF!!!

    Thank God, someone has some sense. This crackhead train wreck needs to stay right where she's at, in rehab and out of the public streets causing kaos and melting down like our native nuevo riche trailer trash, brit.

  68. socalguy says – reply to this


    68

    You make it sound like she was denied because they wanted her to get well. They denied because we don't want anymore hollyweird skanky crack whores.

    oh well her health its more important so perhaps it for the better.

    Perez, is this a new pic of Amy? She looks good here.

    Get well Amy!!!

    75

    Sucks to be rich and crazy.

    I saw her at SXSW in Austin - and would've flown to get tickets to see her again - great voice and very funny lady. But……I am hopeful that she will be well and here to write and perform for a long time, which was sort of doubtful a few weeks ago. A clean and sober Amy will be worth the wait.

    P.S. Dear Amy, Dump that weenie husband.

  76. the wino says – reply to this


    76

    To all you americans slating her. fuck you. who gives a shit whether she performs or not. she's getting help for her problems. like america isn't the most fucked up country in the world. with bush at the helm and drugs a plenty - sounds like a riot. cunts.

  77. Labby says – reply to this


    77

    Amy, Im disappointed becuz I wanted the world to see what a bad ass chick u are and more importantly that u are the most amazing singer to come along in a very long time. Ur health is what matters. There will be a ton of other awards to receive and a ton of other chances to perform in front of millions. Work on your Bond song, stay sober one day at a time. I loved seeing u in Baltimore on 8/4/7 and look forward to seeing u back in the states. YOU CAN DO THIS.

    good, that bitch needs to stay in rehab…

  80. some bitch from the State Dept. says – reply to this


    80

    Re: blablabla – Nope, sorry. This shit is all based on law passed by Congress. You no likely, write your representative. USCIS has SOME discretion in granting waivers for visas denied by the State Department, but not much when urines turn up dirty.

    Get well Amy!

  81. KJ says – reply to this


    81

    Why does she need a visa? The UK has a visa waiver agreement with the US so she can legally enter the US on just her Brit passport for a period of 3 months.

    84

    For purely selfish reasons I am pissed that her Visa was rejected. But I knew without a doubt it would be rejected after the shocking video exposed her smoking something.

    Hopefully she will continue in Rehab and concentrate on getting herself well. And that she kicks ass at the grammy's despite her not attending.

  85. peltam says – reply to this

    Why she needs a visa? isn't she brittish? Brittish are not supposed to need a visa to come here :-S

    I hope she stays in rehab it will be good for her. She's already looking better

    THAT'S ACTUALLY VERY SAD. AS AN ARTIST YOU STRIVE TO BE RECOGNIZED AND THAT'S THE ULTIMATE RECOGNITION! HER HEALTH IS IMPORTANT THOUGH, BUT I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO SEE HER THERE!

  89. mia says – reply to this


    89

    I am so glad. She has done nothing to deserve an award. Talent doesn't equal character, and wealth should not overrule the law. Until she is cleared of any illegal actions, she should not benefit from the American system.

    Holy crap how old is she? up until now i have only seen photos of her while she was using and I assumed she was damn near 30 something, but she looks pretty good and YOUNG in this photo.

    GOD BLESS AMERICA !!!! WE HAVE ENOUGH OF A MESS WITH SHITNEY…. and she is talentless.

    STAY IN REHAB AMY….AMERICA will still love you and play Rehab. Plus most of us are actually looking forward to your next album, unlike our popwrecks (lindsey, paris, heidi, and shitney)

    Uncle Sam to Amy Winehouse: "I hear you knocking…but you can't come in!" Has no one heard of "live via satelite?" Stay in rehab - dahling - get clean, be well - to sing yet another day.
