Amy Winehouse: a bit of a mixed day

Some good news for Amy Winehouse: she's been granted a visa for entry into the US. So that'll help her building her career in the US.

Although, maybe not. As this evening, the Daily Mail is reporting that police have raided her and Blake's Camden home:

Police were refusing to comment on the 5pm raid, only saying: "It is part of an ongoing operation."

Three armed officers and ten plainclothes officers broke into the house, which was empty at the time.

Miss Winehouse had earlier fled to her father's home in Kent while her husband left the house an hour earlier.

The officers left carrying several boxes.

Four men, two aged 25, one aged 22 and a 19-year-old, were later arrested in east London in connection with the raid.

Not sure she could have actually "fled" hours before the raid was coming - unless she'd been tipped off that the cops were coming. And if you had a half-day's notice, wouldn't you do something more useful with your time than running away to a place where even the Daily Mail knows where you are?
