Amy Winehouse moving to suburbs

Amy Winehouse is moving to the suburbs.
The 'Rehab' singer - who has been battling her dug addiction on an extended Caribbean holiday - will swap hedonistic Camden for the quiet suburb of Hadley Wood on her return to London.
A friend told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "It's quiet and there won't be all that temptation on her doorstep.
"But it's near to her home London borough of Enfield and to Camden, so she won't feel too isolated. That's why she has agreed."
Hadley Wood's Tory MP David Burrowes says the North London suburb - which boarders Hertfordshire's idyllic countryside - has nothing to tempt the singer back onto a destructive path.
He said: "The area has no pubs, clubs or wine bars. The only nightlife is a whole lot of foxes and wildlife. Amy could take on a role in the community."
It was revealed earlier this month that Amy, who went to St. Lucia in December, is avoiding "bad influences" in London by recording her long-awaited third album in Jamaica, the home of late reggae legend Bob Marley.
A source said: "Amy is having the time of her life in St. Lucia and doesn't want it to end. She's looking and feeling so much better and is worried about the bad influences waiting for her back in London. She's written a big chunk of her new album and has told bosses she wants to go to Jamaica to record it."
