Wineheezy DENIED!

2/7/2008 5:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly reports Amy will perform at the Grammys -- but via satellite.

Uncle Sam does not, not, not want Amy Winehouse! TMZ has learned the cracked-out singer will not perform at this year's Grammy Awards because her visa has been denied.

After the decision came down, her publicist issued the following statement: "Amy has been progressing well since entering a rehabilitation clinic two weeks ago and although disappointed with the decision has accepted the ruling and will be concentrating on her recovery."

No word on why the visa was denied, but perhaps this, this, this and getting caught on tape allegedly smoking crack might be to blame.

Winehouse, who has been in and out of rehab, also canceled a slew of tour dates this year.

I don't understand why she needs a visa at all. Anyone living in the EU countries can visit the USA for up to 90 days without any visa. The only thing I can think of is that she wanted to perform at the Grammys and needed a work visa to do that. If she just wanted to fly over to visit she would not need a visa but would have to leave the USA before 90 days are up.

All these Hollywood druggie make their own bed, including those that are in Europe. Drugs and fine music and theatre just do not mix. It's too bad California doesn't take a stronger position on druggies.
