Amy and Mark make up

By Simon Rocker, September 28, 2010

In the seasonal spirit of forgiveness, Amy Winehouse has made peace after lashing out at fellow Jewish musician Mark Ronson.

The troubled singer, who calls herself the "Jewish lioness", on her Twitter page, got her claws into Ronson after he claimed credit for her album Back to Black, tweeting "ronson you're dead to me."

But the star was quick to explain away her anger, albeit in language the rest of us might struggle with. On her personal Twitter account amyjademermaid she wrote: "Ronson i love you; that make it better? you knoww i love you- it's a jew thingz x whup rza."

It may not be any kind of proof that Amy Winehouse is back on the straight and narrow, but her father sets a lot of store by the fact she will be at the family Seder this year — and, with luck, not touching even a ritual drop of her four glasses of wine.

Amy, your drug drama is boring us

By Bryony Gordon, January 21, 2010

And so we didn’t even manage to get to the end of January without breaking our resolutions. More pointedly, Amy Winehouse didn’t. Just 20 days into the year, the singer turned up at court in Milton Keynes charged with drunkenly assaulting a theatre manager during a pantomime performance (my first thought was: “what on earth was Amy Winehouse doing at a panto starring Mickey Rooney?”).
