Winehouse delivers the goods, with both music and controversy at Glastonbury Music fest:
GLASTONBURY, UK (Hollywood Today)
She appeared on stage, on time, somewhat intense but nevertheless THERE for the audience who had spent the night in tents waiting for her at the Glastonbury fest, the Woodstock of the UK.
Sporting four cocktail umbrellas in her trademark beehive’do, she launched into what was to be a full menu from aperitif to digestif of full Amy.
And she was on best behaviour until she went into the security pit for her last two songs.
She delivered her songs and shared her emotions with an audience who were not there to judge just to enjoy.
Amy drank , gyrated and spat on stage: she did what she does best …she performed
Why was it, she queried, that it took a girl so long to get dressed and so short a time to be undressed ?
An allusion maybe to how quickly the media had been to expose her private struggles and how slow, lately, to applaud her hard earned fame.
Her husband ,she told us, was to be “released from jail in two weeks time” clearly tonight this is the man Amy loves.
She, like her music , is two tone ; she wandered among the crowd flashing aggression and intimacy.
The star rambled: “This one was another one where I never thought I would see Blake again.
When people in the crowd jeered, Amy threatened:
Amy Winehouse provided expectant Glastonbury festival-goers with the controversy they were anticipating last night,
Her beehive was slipping and you could just feel the sting itching to get out but it seems Amy is back willing and able and at the end of her set she still had 2 cocktail umbrellas in her hair……

SAG members and line-workers that could be affected by a SAG strike have voiced their opposition for months over SAG’s aggressive stand towards its smaller union and not spent that energy working towards a contract with the studios.
The industry is still feeling the pain from the writer’s strike which cost the local economy an estimated $2.5 billion.
The cinema photographers union in Hollywood has expressed anger at SAG for the manner and delay it has handled their contract negotiations.
The statement from Rosenberg comes at a time when the count down towards uncertainty is leaving industry personnel, nervous and fearful for their jobs during this tough time in the economy.
