Amy Winehouse Booed St. Lucia Jazz Festival
Amy Winehouse told booing fans to “fuck off” as she cut short her comeback concert in the Caribbean.
The star, 25, also flashed her knickers, stumbled on stage, and even appeared to forget lyrics.
It all went down on Friday, as Amy was appearing at the St Lucia Jazz Festival “as a thank you to an island and people that have been so welcoming” to her.
On Saturday, her spokesman released a statement saying Amy was “disappointed” at abandoning her performance but blamed the stormy weather. He said rain pounding the stage caused lighting and sound equipment to fail.
“Amy and the band tried to soldier on but the set had to be cut short. Amy is very disappointed as St. Lucia has been wonderful to her and its people have welcomed her with open arms, but circumstances beyond anyone’s control meant that this special show did not go as planned,” the statement read.
But concertgoers who were on-hand for the Grammy winner’s shaky performance tell a different story.
In an interview with the BBC, one shocked fan said: “She seemed virtually asleep at one point while sitting at the front of the stage with her eyes closed. It was weird, she kept taking her shoes on and off. At other times she stopped singing. The audience started booing and she yelled fuck off at least twice.”
