Blake Fielder-Civil finds a novel way of getting high in prison
Amy Winehouse’s husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, has reportedly been swapping signed pictures of his wife for heroin.
According to The Sun, Fielder-Civil, currently in custody at London’s Pentonville prison, has been receiving small amounts of heroin in exchange for the pictures, which inmates plan to sell on eBay. The newspaper quotes a source as saying: “He’ll [Fielder-Civil] take orders from other inmates then ask Amy to bring in signed photos of herself during visits.
“Once he’s back on the wing he’ll swap these for Joeys [small amounts of heroin]. The boys think they’ll get a few quid for them on eBay.” The newspaper also reports that Fielder-Civil was ill last night (Feb 17) after taking contaminated heroin.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Dolly Parton's breasts may be two of the wonders of the entertainment world, but the country music icon says they are a pain in her back.
Parton, 62, said on Monday she would postpone her upcoming North American tour after doctors told her to take it easy for six to eight weeks to rest her sore back.
"Hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have back problems," the folksy singer-songwriter said in a statement.

Singer Amy Winehouse finally got her work visa on Friday, but not in time for her to make the trip to Sunday's Grammy Awards. Winehouse's original visa application was denied under U.S. immigration rules regarding the "use and abuse of narcotics," a senior State Department official said. The rehabbing British singer will go ahead with the backup plan that was concocted while her visa was still in limbo: a live performance, via satellite, from London, where she will also accept any awards she might win for her "Back to Black" album, nominated for Grammys in six categories.
