Amy Winehouse Punch-Out Victim: “I Was Just Trying To Grab The Free Hat”

AP080627020672.jpgLondon resident James Gostelow, the 25-year-old who achieved minor notoriety when he was punched by Amy Winehouse at Glastonbury Festival on Saturday night, is not mad at the troubled songstress at all. Hey, at least he has the best story of all his friends who went to the festival, right? Gostelow would, however, like to clear up the whole discrepancy over whether or not he was trying to paw Winehouse’s cleavage before the attack. He was just trying to get a hat that was flung by someone in the back rows! Why a hat would be worthy of grabbing during a once-in-a-lifetime extra-slurry Winehouse performance is beyond me, unless it was a Hat FM model.

“I saw a hat being thrown from behind me and it hit Amy’s beehive,” he said. “She looked down, saw me looking up, and her elbow went for me.

“She caught my forehead, then someone may have shouted something from the back, which is when she went in again.

“At the end of the day it is all part of being at the front and being pushed by thousands of people. It is all part of the Glastonbury experience. I’m just pleased I got to see her. She did a great act.

“Not everyone can say they have been hit by Amy Winehouse. I just want to shake the person who threw the hat.”

Well, now we know: You do not fuck with Amy Winehouse’s hair. Hey, if she ever gets her life together, maybe she can be in a remake of Spaceballs!
