After laying relatively low for a little bit, Amy Winehouse was back to her old tricks this weekend. And by laying low, I mean she spent a week or two just getting drunk and/or high every night, but didn’t do anything else noteworthy. But this weekend Amy saw fit to take it up a notch and make everyone wonder if she’s got an unchecked case of bipolar disorder to go along with her other issues.
Amy’s evening started out by spraying some fans with a hose (supposedly playfully), then running around a building really fast a couple of times, collapsing in exhaustion, and then getting into a one-sided fight with a security fence. So you know, just a regular night for most of us.
She began the night in high spirits, squirting water with a high-powered jet from her garage at fans gathered outside her Camden, north London, home shortly before 1am. About half an hour later she fancied a trip to live music bar Stables at Camden’s Proud Galleries. She started running to the club with a mystery pal, telling photographers she was going to take them on a trip round the back streets.
She also told them – bizarrely – their mothers would like her because ‘it kept it interesting’. The 24-year-old’s behaviour then became more erratic over the next few hours. Before she got to the club she slumped down outside a shop, pushing her security guard away. The star then jumped up to slam her fist into the shop’s metal security blind… Amy eventually got to the Stables but stayed only for about 30 minutes before leaving via the black door.
She arrived home in a distraught, tearful state with a black coat over her head and red marks on her face.

What mother wouldn’t love Amy Winehouse? When I think of my hypothetical children, I can imagine no one I’d rather them end up with than someone like Amy Winehouse. If they settled for someone with a mere drinking problem I’d be pretty disappointed, to be frank. But if they could at least find someone battling some major mental illness or even just a good emotional disturbance, I’d be pretty satisfied.
It’s really hard to pick out the most bizarre moment from Amy’s evening. Although you could really say that about her life in general. I think it’s pretty clear that she’s not just fighting a very losing battle against addiction, but some sort of mental illness as well.
