Amy Winehouse Takes Ballet Lessons

Amy Winehouse in a tutu? Yes, please!

A source says that Amy’s started taking ballet lessons to get in shape and learn how to dance:

“Amy has started ballet lessons at home and she’s really enjoying them. She wants to get fit, tone up and become more supple without getting too muscly. She really likes kick-boxing too, but she loves the glamor of ballet.”

The source says that Amy wants to be in shape by the time she stages a comeback at the end of a year.

“When she moved in she swore she was going to change her lifestyle – that’s part of the reason she had her own gym and studio installed. She wants to be fit and look good ready for her comeback at the end of the year.”

Ballet? Comeback? Awesome? Yes.

Amy Winehouse Admitted To Hospital

Amy Winehouse is back in the all-too-familiar walls of the hospital.

The singer checked into a hospital in London after she started feeling a “bit ill,” according to her publicist.

Winehouse is reportedly ill with influenza, which she likely picked up while doing concerts in Brazil.

Amy likes to say no to rehab, but we’re glad that she says yes to hospital visits!

Amy Winehouse's Dad Almost Died!

Amy Winehouse's dad almost died of gall bladder complications

60-year-old Mitch Winehouse has been so busy dealing with his daughter's, Amy Winehouse, drug and alcohol fueled problems since her music career took off, he made the nearly fatal mistake of never dealing with his own health problems.

The dedicated father ignored intermittent stomach pains, until it was so bad that he was rushed to an emergency room where he had to have his gall bladder removed!

By the time he finally made the trip to the hospital, he had developed septicaemia and according to doctors, if he had gone much longer without treatment, he could have died!

Woah, scary stuff!

Mitch says he was afraid to go to the hospital for a long time since cancer seems to run in his family, stating:

“I've had an uncle and aunt and a stepfather who died from cancer and my grandparents did as well, so in my subconscious something told me if I went through hospital doors, I wouldn't be coming out.”

Although a terrible scare, the incident seems to have turned the man’s life around as he has lost a significant amount of weight and is even taking his own leap into the music industry with an album of jazz and swing covers.

'We're having the launch soon and it's going to be Amy this time in the front row applauding me and not the other way around,” he jokes.

We're excited to hear if Mitch Winehouse has a better voice than his famous daughter, but hope he can avoid the perilous pitfalls of drug and alcohol excess lurking in the jazz and swing music scene.
