Remember when Amy Winehouse couldn’t get her ass to the 2008 Grammys because America wouldn’t give her a visa (yet for some reason we’ll take Lindsay Lohan back, sans passport)? Well, Amy’s not been on her best behavior recently, what with the “recent tumbling down the staircase and damaging her new boobs incident” so US customs is still nixing the idea of her coming and damaging our pristine celebrity reputation.
Which is quite hurtful to Amy and her new collaborators, Roots drummer/Brooklyn Bowl DJ ?uestlove and producer Raphael Saadiq, who are based here in America, and are trying to make this new group happen. “I’m off to France soon so I’ll see if she’s up for discussing it over dinner. We’re Skype-ing the shit out of each other,” says ?uestlove (pronounced Questlove). Guess these guys have never heard of Gchat.
