After a loopy Saturday night performance in Belgrade in which she "stumbled across the stage, slurred through her songs, and threw a shoe into the crowd," singer Amy Winehouse has cancelled the rest of her European tour and "scrapped all public performances," reports the Associated Press. Winehouse, who's had previous bouts of drug and alcohols abuse, will be focusing on her recovery, says spokesman Chris Goodman. "Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen," he said. Goodman failed to acknowledge the humor in the fact that his announcement satisfies the prophecy in the opening line of Winehouse's most popular song:
They tried to make me go to rehab but I said 'no, no, no'
Yes I've been bad but when I come back you'll know know know
