At the time, R&B superstar Beyonce had brought out songs including 'Irreplaceable' and Winehouse - who died in July 2011 from alcohol intoxication aged just 27 - released her critically-acclaimed LP 'Back to Black', and Stevens says it felt like a ''different'' world to return to.

Rihanna chose the moment that Bey's name was read out for Best Urban Contemporary Album to apply some lip gloss. Shade?
In amid the annual music industry bunfight that is the Grammy Awards last night, social media went wild after a few eagle-eyed viewers thought Rihanna shaded Beyonce as she lost out to her for Best Urban Contemporary Album award by disinterestedly applying lip gloss as Bey’s name was read out.
Surprising, as they’re both among the most loved female pop stars in the world at this moment in time and not normally associated with petty spats with other celebs.

Jay Z snapped a photo of Beyonce as she posed in an elevator in Paris this week - but the image caught a reflection of him holding the camera as he did so.
A fairly innocuous photo of Beyonce taken by her husband Jay Z on tour this week has accidentally gone viral, with corners of the internet finding an image of Bey in an elevator hysterically funny because it shows Jigga as an ‘Instagram husband’.
The photograph was posted on Bey’s official website earlier this week, showing the pop star in a mirrored elevator in the French capital city of Paris while on her 'Formation' tour. However, a reflection of the rapper can be seen the background taking the photo on a phone, which he may not have realised.

Who posed competition for Bey on the red carpet?
It was the fashion Oscars last night (June 6th 2016) at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York; the CFDA Fashion Awards presented a host of the most glamorous women in showbusiness as it announced the designers and icons who have bagged prizes this year.
Jennifer Hudson gave some Red Queen glamour
Of course, it was Beyonce who landed the coveted Fashion Icon Award by the Council of Fashion Designers of America and indeed she showed off her talents in the wardrobe department by eschewing the traditional red carpet gown in favour of a striped pant-suit and an enormous brimmed hat (kind of like a cross between Beetlejuice and Winona Ryder in the same film). Bey-utiful. It's just as well she opted for something a little different given that her contemporaries were especially difficult to beat; Jennifer Hudson showed off her enviable curves in a black and red Prabal Gurung piece that was more reminiscent of the Red Queen.
The conservative pundit described Jay Z as a ‘drug dealer’ earlier this year during a rant about Beyonce’s Superbowl performance.
Jay Z has hit back at conservative pundit Tomi Lahren on his new track with Pusha T titled ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’. The song was released last night on Jay’s streaming service Tidal and samples Lahren’s viral rant from earlier this year, in which she labelled Jay a drug dealer and criticised wife Beyonce’s Superbowl performance.
Jay Z has dropped new track ‘Drug Dealers Anonymous’.
Before Jay’s verse Lahren is heard saying: "Your husband was a drug dealer. For fourteen years, he sold crack cocaine.” The sample comes from an online video Lahren made for The Blaze in February in which she criticised Beyonce’s Superbowl performance and in particular the use of Black Panther style imagery.
Futuristic fashion flooded the floor at this year's Costume Gala.
This year's Met Gala hosted probably one of the best themes its ever seen, with celebrities entering in their droves decked head to toe in futuristic fashion; metallics, latex and dark lipstick galore. Some of the best dressed included Beyonce, Taylor Swift and Blake Lively.

The 2016 Costume Institute Gala held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art featured an interesting fashion theme: 'Manus x Machina: Fashion In An Age Of Technology'. It was a chance to really get to grips with one's inner sci-fi fox, though many stars were disappointingly minimal with their costume execution.

The video for 'Hymn For the Weekend' was filmed in Mumbai, India.
