Amy Winehouse Finally Got Her Punk Ass Arrested

Amy Winehouse Arrested in Norway for Marijuana Use

From the AP:

British singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse was arrested in Norway for marijuana possession and held overnight, a police official said Friday.

Winehouse, her husband Blake Fielder-Civil and a third person were released at around 7:00 a.m. Friday after paying $715 in fines, Prosecutor Lars Morten Lothe said.

The trio were arrested shortly after 6 p.m. at a hotel in Bergen in southwestern Norway, where Winehouse is on a European tour, after a tip to police.

“They were found with seven grams (about 1/4-ounce)of marijuana,” Lothe said. “She’s paid the fine, so this thing is over for us now.”

Damn, I wanna smoke weed in Norway.

In the U.S., it’s a little more complicated, isn’t it? I’m not a weed person, and I’ve never been arrested for it, so I’m not really sure. Anyone around here been caught with a quarter-ounce of weed in another country? Did you get off this easy?

“We’re taking power from the word. No disrespect to none of them who were part of the civil rights movement, but some … in the streets don’t know who (civil rights activist) Medgar Evers was … they know who Nas is. And to my older people who don’t know who Nas is and who don’t know what a street disciple is, stay outta this motherfucking conversation. We’ll talk to you when we’re ready. Right now, we’re on a whole new movement. We’re taking power from that word.”

Nas, whose upcoming album will be controversially titled Nigger. (Hey, the kids at Bossip printed it, so I can too!)

There’s a ton of really powerful stuff in this MTV interview with him. In fact, I’ve put the whole thing after the jump. It’s just that damn important.

Britney’s Still a Moron

I don’t have it in my to summarize or be snarky about these stories anymore, but it’s my job to bring them to you.

TMZ has learned that Britney Spears stood up her parenting coach yesterday, and apparently, it’s the last straw for the coach.

Sources say Britney had a scheduled time to meet the coach yesterday at her Malibu home. The coach made the trek, but no Britney.

We’re told during the hearing earlier this week, the coach phoned in and asked the Commissioner if she could end the home visits, presumably because they were going nowhere. Seems like Britney was ignoring the coach — like everyone else who gives her advice.

Are they still making those Team Federline shirts?

Isla Fisher Gives Birth to Baby Girl

“There is no way I am going to worry about missing out on work or the pressure to lose weight. At the moment I am not even planning any work. As far as I am concerned I am fully booked up in my personal life and I can’t see beyond that. I plan on just colouring in books. I’ll focus on that for the next few years.”

Isla Fisher, who gave birth to a baby girl on Wednesday night. The baby daddy is her fiance, Sacha Baron Cohen (aka Borat).
