Winehouse's Husband to Remain Incarcerated for 27 Months

July 21, 2008 2:38 PM ET

Amy Winehouse's husband/enabler Blake Fielder-Civil was sentenced to 27 months in prison today. "Blake Incarcerated" was arrested after assaulting a London bar owner and then attempting to "pervert the course of justice" following the assault by bribing the bar owner to abandon the case. Fielder-Civil pleaded guilty to the charges last month. Winehouse was not in court today when the sentence was read. Since Fielder-Civil has already served nine months in jail, he may get out of prison in 18 months. The judge said Blake Incarcerated's supposed drug use behind bars had a bearing on the sentencing.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
