Talented and troubled singer Amy Winehouse has checked herself into rehab in a effort to kick her horrible drug addictions. The move follows a meeting on Thursday with her record label Universal, her management as well as family members and her doctors. It follows a video released and published in the United Kingdom earlier this week apparently showing the wasted star smoking crack cocaine. A statement from Universal reveals Winehouse's rehab stint -- at an undisclosed location -- is a bid to help her kick her drug dependence in time to appear at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on February 10th. Winehouse has been nominated for six of the awards. The statement reads, "Amy Winehouse's planned appearance at the NRJ Awards in France on Saturday has been canceled as the artist has entered a rehabilitation clinic."Amy decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors. She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction and prepare for her planned appearance at the Grammy Awards."Amy entered the facility by mutual agreement and continues to receive the full support of all concerned. "Amy is the most talented and important musical artist of her generation and has made huge strides on her road to recovery. Universal Music Group wants nothing more than to see her take the time she needs to come back to full health and fulfill her incredible potential with the label."All concerned feel that Amy must put her health before all other considerations and will be by her side whenever and wherever they are needed."
