Badly Beaten Amy Winehouse and Bruised Beau: Shocking Photos and Winehouse's Denial

August 24, 2007 10:24 AM ET

Amy Winehouse has admitted she's prone to beating on her boyfriends, but after seeing the astonishing photos that surfaced last night, she's vehemently denying that her husband beats back. According to reports, the singer and husband Blake Fielder-Civil brawled at London's Sanderson Hotel (police confirmed there was an incident to the U.K.'s Daily Telegraph, adding that no charges would be filed). Witnesses say a bloody and disheveled Winehouse sprinted out of the hotel at 3:30 AM with Fielder-Civil close behind, jumped into a taxi and bought cigarettes; the two returned together about an hour later. Winehouse was apparently shocked upon seeing the graphic photos of herself and Fielder-Civil bloody and battered in the papers and texted blogger Perez Hilton detailing the events of the evening -- insisting that her hubby did her no harm: "I was cutting myself after he (BLAKE) found me in our room about to do drugs with a call girl and rightly said I wasn't good enough for him. I lost it and he saved my life."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
