Amy Winehouse Cancels Her MTV Appearance

Posted on

Amy Winehouse will not perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 9, her U.S. record label confirmed to the Associated Press.

“In a continued effort to support Amy Winehouse’s well being, in addition to the postponement of her U.S. tour, all other U.S. appearances have been canceled,” Universal Republic Records said in a statement.

The 23-year-old Winehouse – currently on vacation in St. Lucia with husband Blake Fielder-Civil – was hospitalized Aug. 8 and treated for exhaustion, the start of a roller coaster ride of canceled commitments and impassioned pleas from her parents and in-laws to stop taking drugs. All of her U.S. appearances have been postponed until 2008.

Earlier this month, the singer and her husband checked into a retreat in Essex where, Fielder-Civil said, “The main thing is that me and Amy are getting better.”
