Amy has always been under media scrutiny due to her controversial personal life, drug abuse and self destructive behavior.
In August 2007, Winehouse cancelled a number of shows in the UK and Europe, citing exhaustion and ill health. She was hospitalized during this period for what was reported as an overdose of heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, ketamine and alcohol.
Winehouse has become a staple in polls. The 2008 NME Awards nominated Winehouse in the categories of ‘Villain of the Year’ and she even won the award for ‘Worst Dressed Performer’.
