Amy Winehouse’s Bestival Boozefest
She’s well-known for being notoriously late to her gigs, and yesterday Amy Winehouse was true-to-form, showing up onstage 45 minutes late for her concert at the Isle of Wight’s Bestival.
The “Rehab” songstress took the stage sporting a flirty checked sleeveless belted minidress along with her usual massive beehive hairdo and gave a nearly-perfect performance, much to the delight of the patiently-waiting festival goers.
According to a report, part of Winehouse’s pre-show rider included 48 bottles of Jack Daniels whiskey to be delivered to her dressing room. And that had event coordinators concerned.
A source told press, “It’s common for artists to make requests for food and beverages before they arrive. But organizers have heard Miss Winehouse has ordered in an extremely large amount of Jack Daniel’s, in fact, a ridiculous amount that she and her team could not possibly consume during their short stay.”
