Amy Winehouse is, yes, returning to rehab once again.
The 27-year-old singer checked into The Priory rehab clinic on Wednesday, making a quick stop on her way there at a grocery store in North London where she picked up a minature bottle of Smirnoff. There could be jokes made here, clearly, but it all seems too sad.
A witness told the Sun that she did not seem in the best condition during this pre-rehab pit stop.
"She seemed out of it," the "onlooker" said. "She was stumbling about, slurring her words. I was shocked to see her buy vodka so early in the day, and even more shocked to see her knock it straight back."
Winehouse's rep told the Daily Mail that the singer decided to check into the center because "she wants to be ready for performances in Europe this summer and decided to seek an assessment. She will remain at The Priory on doctors' advice."
Winehouse previously spent time in rehab in 2008 due to her issues with drugs and alcohol.
