Cigarette smoking and crack cocaine have damaged lungs of singer Amy Winehouse
LONDON, UK (Hollywood Today)
After Winehouse collapsed a week ago at her London home, she was taken to the hospital for tests and remained there all week.
Winehouse is scheduled to sing at Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday party in London on Friday and to participate in the Glastonbury music festival on Saturday.
It’s also unclear how Amy Winehouse can need serious medical treatment, yet plan to sing at a weekend music festival surrounded by people likely to offer her drugs.
In 2006, Amy Winehouse released her break-out album, ‘Back to Black’, that received six Grammy nominations, won five and tied the record for the most wins for a female recording artist in a single night.
Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, and Kurt Cobain are celebrity members of music’s infamous “27 club”, made up of musicians who died at age 27.

The Day the Laughter Died
HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Today)
Carlin was cutting edge.
Instead of rolling off jokes, Carlin would talk to his audience as if he were a college professor, educating his students of the ways of the world…and just how messed up it could be.
Carlin was the most entertaining and enlightening comedian of a generation, to the Baby Boom generation Carlin was what Bob Hope was to a prior generation.
George Carlin is survived by his wife and daughter….and millions of devoted fans.
To celebrate, he will party like it’s 1948 by holding a concert in Hyde Park, London on June 27th which promises a star-studded line-up.
Sir Paul McCartney wants all Brits to adopt “meat-free Mondays” to cut carbon emissions.
Cutting out meat one day a week was popular in Australia, where shoppers had become conscious of the environmental impact of cattle rearing and meat production.
Now, in an interview with trade magazine The Grocer, Sir Paul called on UK consumers to cut down on meat consumption even if they could not give it up altogether.
Sir Paul, who is a long-term vegetarian and is the latest celebrity to appear in a Peta advertising campaign promoting vegetarianism, said:
A lot of people go to the gym on a Monday.
One of the most significant conclusions of the recent report on climate change was that we should eat less meat.
Alicia Silverstone, Casey Affleck, and Forest Whitaker have all previously worn the “Eat no animal” T-shirt the former Beatle adorns.
