Amy Winehouse went shopping at 4am this morning (08.05.08), just hours after being arrested on drugs charges.
The singer chatted to photographers as she left her North London home, asking for suggestions for a new tattoo.
Wearing a bandana with her husband's name written on it, she headed for a nearby petrol station to pick up drinks and magazines and seemed unconcerned about events from earlier in the day.
Amy was arrested yesterday (07.05.08) following an appointment at an East London police station over drugs offences.
The charges relate to video footage of the singer allegedly taking crack cocaine in January this year.
Amy, who reportedly sobbed uncontrollably as she was questioned for almost 10 hours, left the police station at 10.30pm last night. She was released on bail to reappear later this month.
Amy's spokesperson said: "Amy voluntarily attended a London police station today by appointment. She was arrested in order to be interviewed and is cooperating fully with inquiries. The interview relates to a video handed to police earlier this year."
A Scotland Yard spokesperson added: "Around 1pm yesterday a 24-year-old woman from the Camden area attended a London police station by arrangement and was arrested in connection with the alleged possession of a controlled drug.
"She remains in custody. This is in connection with an investigation connected to footage passed to the Metropolitan Police on January 22."
In the video footage reportedly taken at the star's East London home, the singer also appeared to snort "highly concentrated" powdered ecstasy and cocaine and swallow six Valium pills.
Amy's arrest follows a caution last month for an alleged assault in a pub near her home.
The singer's husband, Blake Fielder-Civil is currently on remand awaiting trial on charges of grievous bodily harm (GBH) and conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
