Winehouse's Services Sought By Clooney And Roberts

Subscribe to Amy Winehouse alerts

Amy Winehouse is on the verge of a massive career and financial boost courtesy of George Clooney and Julia Roberts - who have been assigned to recruit the troubled singer for an exclusive New York event. Party host and fashion designer Giorgio Armani has asked the Hollywood pair - who are co-chairs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute, where the event will be held on 5 May (08) - to offer the Back To Black star $1 million (GBP500,000) to perform. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Giorgio has made it no secret to his friends that he would love to work with Amy. "He sees this party as an ideal opportunity to sound her out about future projects together." Winehouse has been absent from the live circuit in recent months - in November (07) she quit her British tour, and in January (08) she was admitted to rehab amid reports her drug taking had spiralled out of control.
