Amy Winehouse: Gotta Kick That Habit
Add another malady to Amy Winehouse's ever growing list of medical afflictions. Winehouse was recently diagnosed with Emphysema which was, not surprisingly, closely linked to her on-going crack and cigarette addiction. Sources say her lung capacity has been cut to approximately 70%, rendering her performance career utterly finished, if it wasn't already. Crack is a hell of a thing. Winehouse's seminal record Back to Black, opened the door for today's revolutionized R&B-pop performers (see Adele...) Hopefully, she can regain control of her life, and get back in the studio - dubious, dubious.

We would also like to take this time to send our regards to comedian George Carlin who passed at 71. See the New York Times for details.

After the jump.
