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."

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
