London, England (CNS) – Troubled British singer Amy Winehouse, who had been in the news in 2008 for all wrong reasons, is now planning to make her comeback in 2009 as a fashion designer. There is speculation in media that the Rehab singer is currently in negotiations with iconic British label Fred Perry.
According to reports, the singer says she has already sketched some designs for them. Winehouse blurted out the news in a hotel bar of Caribbean island St. Lucia. A holidaymaker told The Sun, “She was almost childishly excited and couldn’t stop talking about it.”
The source added that the singer was not partying to excess as she is looking better and doesn’t seem to be drinking that much.
Winehouse has received media attention apart from her singing. Her distinctive style has been the muse for fashion designers such as Karl Lagerfeld.
The singer’s problems with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as self-destructive behavior, have become regular tabloid news since 2007. She and her husband have been plagued by legal troubles that have led to the cancellation of several tour dates.
