Ailing and visibly frail lung diseased singer Amy Winehouse is still smoking.
The 24-year-old checked out of her London hospital for a few hours Monday to practice for her performance at Nelson Mandela's birthday celebration this Friday.
Her publicist now spin the story that Winehouse is not suffering from emphysema after all.
It's a "scarring of the lungs which could lead to emphysema", says spokesman Chris Goodman. "If she keeps doing the wrong things, then it could lead to it. If she does the right things, it won't."
Smoking is top of the "Don't" list.
Reports say the concert promoters were happy with her performance at rehearsal.
