Amy Winehouse Goes on Drunken, Topless Hospital Spree, Because Why Not?
Amy Winehouse is no stranger to hospitals. And as her most recent encounter with Britain's health-care system demonstrates, she's definitely feeling more comfortable with the places these days.
The "Rehab" singer was admitted to the same London clinic where she had her breasts enlarged last year on Sunday, after taking a drunken tumble and complaining of pain in her ribs. But she wasn't about to let a little bit of rib pain get in the way of a good time. According to one hospital worker,
"Amy was running up and down the corridors with her top off and reeking of booze...She has been heard complaining of pain caused by bruising on her breasts and around her ribs. The nurses had to step in and ask her to calm down. Eventually she had to be taken back to her room. The ward sister was absolutely fuming."
The put-upon ward sister won't find relief anytime soon, alas; Winehouse so enjoyed the experience of causing chaos at the clinic that she's decided to stick around for a bit, according to a rep for the singer:
"She really likes the clinic so may stay a few days."
Memo to Congress: We sure hope that health-care reform bill contains a clause barring Winehouse from visiting any American hospital for any reason whatsoever. Ever.
