Amy Winehouse's spit show
Jul 19, 2007, 11:10 GMT
Amy Winehouse outraged fans by spitting into the crowd during her latest performance.
The 'Rehab' singer - who cancelled a series of shows over the last two weeks citing "exhaustion" - disgusted the audience with her bizarre behaviour at Cornwall's Eden Project on Tuesday (17.07.07).
Amy's show began well as she sailed through her first two songs, but then she dashed off stage without any explanation.
When she returned she appeared in a confused state forgetting the lyrics to her songs, mumbling swear words and constantly rubbing her nose.
The 23-year-old star even slapped herself in the face, repeatedly hit herself in the head with her microphone and abused worried members of her entourage who came on stage to help.
The final straw for fans - who had paid £33 to watch the notorious hellraiser - came when Amy spat over them.
Dozens left in disgust, booing and jeering as they exited the outdoor venue.
Amy dropped her microphone halfway through her last song, a cover of The Zutons hit 'Valerie', before storming off.
One fan said: "It was a bizarre performance. She was disorientated, disinterested and dishevelled. I paid a lot of money because I was a huge fan - but I am not anymore."
Amy - who has been nominated for this year's Nationwide Mercury Prize for her album 'Back to Black' - has built up a reputation for disappointing her fans in recent months.
Two weeks ago, she was seen drinking in a London pub with her husband Blake Fielder-Civil, just hours after cancelling a Liverpool show claiming she was too ill to perform.
She also pulled out of scheduled performances at the T In The Park and Oxegen music festivals.
