Poor Amy Winehouse who they wanted to ban

Rumor has it that Amy Winehouse is finally cleaning up her act, but the talented singer has left a trail of trouble behind her. So outrageous were Amy’s antics that she was barred from performing in the United States twice — once in 2008, which forced her to miss that year’s Grammys (where she won 5 awards) and again in 2009. Amy Winehouse has withdrawing from all scheduled performances since June. Hopefully, Amy will learn to keep her beehive, and her behavior, in line.
