Amy Winehouse Cancels Entire European Tour

According to People, Amy Winehouse's current European tour has been canceled! The tour was to have 12 stops before ending on August 15 in Bucharest, Romania.

This past Saturday, Amy tried to perform in Belgrade, showing up an hour late, then stumbling around and slurring the words to her 2008 song "Just Friends." She even greeted the crowd of 20,000 by shouting, "Hello, Athens," (???!) according to the U.K.'s Telegraph newspaper. Following the incident, Amy apologized to fans and canceled Monday's scheduled performance in Istanbul and Wednesday's in Athens.

Now the entire tour has been canceled. No word if Amy will be heading back to rehab for her problem with alcohol. She has just finished a stint late last month.

I don't deny this woman's talent at all, but she has problems. She commits to change, this is going to be a consistent problem. There is nothing more that pisses me off than when an artist with talent starts blowing it for no good reason. I'm honestly hoping that she goes into rehab now for as long as it takes for her to stop. Alcoholism is a serious problem, and she needs help with it. If that means she needs to take off of music for a while, so be it. That's what I would be telling her if I was on her team. Because what purpose does it do for her to have tours and appearances if she's drunk? And more important than the career, this is her LIFE. I don't know if somebody told her that or not, but she definitely doesn't need to be saying no to rehab.
