Amy Winehouse was born September 14, 1983, in London, England. She is a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter who is best known for the groundbreaking hit songs "Rehab" and “You Know I'm No Good.” Her debut album, Frank, was released in 2003, but it was her second album, 2006’s Back to Black, that made her a superstar. The album earned her six Grammy nominations, of which she won five, thereby tying the record for the most wins in one night by a female artist. It also made her an A-list celebrity in her home country; in 2007, she won both a BRIT Award and three Ivor Novello Awards, Britain’s top music awards. Since hitting it big, Amy has become world-famous for both her distinct fashion style (especially her ’60s-inspired eyeliner and messy bouffant) and, unfortunately, her serious drug- and alcohol-abuse problems, which have led her in and out of rehab. In July 2009, she divorced husband Blake Fielder-Civil after two years of marriage, but the two reconciled in 2010. She’s currently working on another album, which she hopes to release by January 2011.
