First signings rumored

While America
takes a deep breath and reflects today, the rest of the world continues apace –
to wit, news arriving from the British media that Amy Winehouse, who’s been
vacationing lately
in St.
Lucia, canoodling with a new boyfriend, and
declaring herself drug free, is launching her own record label. No, she’s not
calling it Crack City Records; the proposed name is Lioness, and the label will
bow with a record from Winehouse’s goddaughter, 13-year old upstart (and
YouTube sensation) Dionne Bromfield.


Reports indicate the Winehouse is putting a million pounds
into the label and release (which has already included a 15,000 pound tally to
give the young diva singing lessons – not a good sign). Speaking to reporters
last year, Winehouse enthused, “Dionne is young but she has more potential than
any girl I’ve ever seen. I know she’s got an advantage by knowing me but I’d
put her in a room against anyone and she’d do the business.”

Got You,” below. It features Winehouse playing guitar and was shot by Pete
