One of our favorite celebrity blogs, Dlisted, is reporting that heartbroken chanteuse Amy Winehouse is planning to get hitched right here in Miami over the weekend. Her fiancé, Blake Fielder-Civil, bears more than a passing resemblance to Pete Doherty.
As big Amy Winehouse fans, we’re a bit concerned about the impending nuptuals. If all goes well, perhaps the Winehouse will evolve into a Mary J. Blige role and start singing about the beauty of her romance. If it doesn’t, we can look forward to Back to Black, redux. After all, Fielder-Civil is the bloke she wrote so many of those heartwrenching songs about in the first place. Either way, welcome to the Magic City, Amy! Our fingers are crossed for you. Here’s hoping that your marriage turns out to be as charmed as your career has been so far. --Patrice Yursik
