Winehouse Released From Hospital
British singer AMY WINEHOUSE has been discharged from hospital in London after doctors declared her well enough to go home.
The Back To Black hitmaker was admitted to a London clinic after collapsing at her home earlier last month (16Jun08). She was subsequently diagnosed with traces of deadly lung disease emphysema.
She left the clinic this weekend to perform at a London tribute concert to Nelson Mandela on Friday (27Jun08) and at U.K. music festival Glastonbury on Saturday night (28Jun08), returning to the hospital on Sunday (29Jun08).
But the troubled star was subsequently released on Monday (30Jun08) and will continue treatment at the centre as an outpatient.
Her spokesperson tells British newspaper the Daily Express, "Amy did return to hospital after Glastonbury but her doctors recommended she continue treatment as an outpatient.
"She was allowed to leave for the performances and it was felt that this really went well. As her treatment is coming to a close, it was decided that she should return home."
And the rep added that the star plans on keeping her forthcoming performing commitments, adding, "The next date for her is the Oxegen festival; she's really looking forward to that.
"Then there are other dates including Bestival in September. The idea was to book lots of one-off dates that she can enjoy doing this summer. She loves performing."
Winehouse is scheduled to perform at Ireland's Oxegen festival on 12 July (08).
