Wino's no, no, no to gig

Amy Winehouse has pulled out of a headline performance for Island Records' 50th birthday bash because performing was too 'emotionally painful' for her.

'She is really upset about missing the dates as Island have been so good to her. Amy understands a lot of people will be disappointed,' said a flunky, who also cited her performance at a Jazz festival in St Lucia as a reason why she can't perform.

'Amy is regretful about having to do this but she needs to close this chapter and start a new one. Singing the songs she sang in St Lucia has brought back too many painful memories. She just can't face it.'
