Published May 27, 2011

It's been five years since Amy Winehouse flooded the airwaves with her hit single "Rehab," and life has imitated art on more than one occasion following the success of the song. Where the 27-year-old British soul singer once said "no, no, no," lately she's being saying "yes, yes, yes," checking in and out of various rehabilitation facilities for alcohol and drug problems.

TMZ is reporting that Winehouse recently took up residence at the Priory Clinic, a prestigious UK facility where she is seeking treatment for "alcohol addiction."

Things have gotten so bad that the "You Know I'm No Good" singer reportedly drank a small bottle of vodka while en route to rehab. In a statement, representatives for Winehouse said the following.

"[Amy] wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at the Priory on doctors' advice."


Winehouse won five Grammy Awards for her 2006 sophomore album, Back to Black.
