Winehouse No-Shows At Own Birthday

Although she frequently turns up late for shows, or doesn’t turn up all, the U.K. tabloids have still made much of Amy Winehouse apparently failing to make it to her own birthday party.

One unnamed source told the Daily Star her family and friends – presumably waiting to sing “Happy Birthday Dear Amy” – were “disappointed” when she failed to show.

“Everyone was really upbeat about the night and buzzing about Amy getting there. But as it got later, it all started to sink in, no one could get hold of Amy, and Mark Ronson had to entertain the crowd with an impromptu performance,” the Star’s mystery insider revealed.

The lavish celebration was at London nightclub Jazz After Dark Sept. 13, reportedly including “live bands, a guitar-shaped cake, and jugs of cocktails.”
