Amy Winehouse’s Fame Hinders Her DJ Battle Stance

Amy Winehouse lost the DJ battle at her London local last night–perhaps because she only picked the songs and stood there, since her 30-minute set included some inarguable classics like Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up” and the Supremes’ “You Can’t Hurry Love.” But at least she won the war of, um, being famous: “[She] was just trying to do a bit of DJ-ing, but because it was quite a small venue and she’s so famous instead of dancing to the music like normal fans would, everyone was crowded around the DJ box trying to take pictures of her. So it was less like a gig and more like a photo shoot or a press conference,” an Evening Standard reporter told Reuters. This might explain her decision to depart the pub while cloaking herself with a lampshade and a box, as shown. [Reuters / Photo: WENN]
