Amy Winehouse has long refused to give up her hard partying lifestyle and now new pictures reveal it is quickly catching up on her.
The troubled singer looked barely recognisable as she peered out of her window to collect a postal delivery just after midday on Saturday.
Her trademark beehive had slipped, leaving tumbling matted tresses in its place and there were lashings of black make-up smeared across her puffy eyes.
Despite what appeared to be a refreshing escape to St Lucia with husband Blake Fielder-Civil last month, it seems Winehouse has resumed destructive behaviour in recent times.
Her family continue to be concerned, with her mother Janis Winehouse recently saying: “Amy is playing Russian roulette with her health and musical gift.”
“She’s lost herself. We’re not talking about my Amy. It’s not someone I recognise. She has become her own stage creation.”
Still, Winehouse has played down her drug and alcohol battles, claiming: “I’m sorted out. Nothing’s wrong with me. A lot of fuss has been made about nothing.”
She also recently revealed she is working on fresh material. She said: “I’m writing some new stuff and can’t wait to be back on tour.”
Meanwhile, Winehouse’s acclaimed album Back to Black is up for four gongs at tomorrow’s Mobo awards including Best UK Female, Best R&B, Best Song, and Best Video.
