Amy Winehouse makes her way to court

Amy Winehouse makes her way to court

Amy Winehouse was in court yesterday (24.07.09) over allegations she hit a dancer. Amy is accused of attacking Sherene Flash at a charity ball last September when she tried to get her photograph taken with Amy. Speaking at the City of London Magistrates’ Court, Sherene said: “She punched me forcefully in my right eye. I started crying. I was shocked. I couldn’t open my eye for a while.” She also claims Amy was intoxicated at the event, adding: “Maybe like she was on drugs or something.” Amy has hit back saying she merely pushed the woman away and said: “She moved her left arm to lean down and tried to pose next to me. Her friend came round in front of us and started taking a picture. I was like, ‘Do I get a choice in this, hello?’ I pushed her up, like away. It was more like an indication of ‘leave me alone, I’m scared of you.’ I didn’t know what she was going to do. She lunged at me and put her arm around me. She’s a nice girl, she was just drunk.”  And the trail continues…which side are you on?

Angelina in Iraq

Angelina in Iraq

Angelina Jolie proves she isn’t one of those half hearted celebs who just lend their name to a charity, only to run scared when the going gets tough. She has jetted out to Iraq to see for herself what’s going on. On behalf of the UN Refugee Agency, Ange toured a camp on the outskirts of Baghdad, where she visited four families who have been affected by the war. This is not the first time Angelina has visited the war torn country, and spoke about the injustice she feels, she said, “They are right to feel that it is not fair.” She went on to say: “The picture in this camp is a rough one but there are also some people that were able to return home to other safer areas.” Well it’s good to see Angelina using her status for a decent cause, more celebs should take a leaf out of her book.
