Amy Winehouse

was too high on drugs to record a proposed James Bond theme song.

The “Rehab” singer - who teamed up with producer Mark Ronson for the title track in 2008 - allegedly ruined the collaboration by partying too hard at the recording studio. Amy’s estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil told Britain’s The Sun newspaper: “It just turned into an excuse for a wild drink and drugs party. She wasn’t concentrating on work.”

Eminem bugs bunny rehab says he felt like Bugs Bunny during his stint in rehab. The rapper, who just launched his latest album , admits his worldwide fame left him feeling like a cartoon character when he checked into rehab in 2005 to receive treatment for drug addiction.

Marshall Mathers told BBC Radio One, “When I landed myself in rehab in 2005 I felt like I wanted to reassess everything. I remember sitting in rehab thinking, ‘Is this what it comes to, really?’ So when I got out I knew I needed to pull back from the spotlight because of the fame thing. I was like Bugs Bunny in rehab, Bugs Bunny walking in the room. The second you walk in the room…There were some people who were as supportive as they could be, some people that were like, ‘I don’t look at you as Eminem. I’m seeing you as Marshall.’”

Eminem recently revealed he wanted to kill himself at the height of his problems. According to him, he just wasn’t taking care of himself, and at times wanted to just give up. “I was in a dark place. I wanted to pull back from the spotlight to reassess my whole career. I got sober but it was pretty rough. A couple of years were bad for me.”

Paula Abdul Conflicting press reports and the overall loopy nature of American Idol judge makes it hard to pin down the answer, but there’s a lot of rumor regarding the Idol panelist and drug abuse. The burning question seems to be, is she addicted…or not?

An upcoming issue of will reveal that Paula Abdul suffered painkiller addiction and sought treatment for this affliction, but practically on the heels of giving the interview Abdul has denounced pretty much the entire thing. “I was quoted as something I didn’t say,” she tried to explain the situation on a recent radio show.

So…was Paula Abdul ever addicted to painkillers? Did she go to rehab for this problem? She’s saying no…but only after she said yes first. Confused? That’s just classic Paula Abdul.

Dustin DiamondJust when I was convinced Mario Lopez was the slimiest thing to come out of Saved by the Bell, Dustin Diamond does something that makes me reevaluate my choice.

To be fair, Dustin actually did something slimy years ago when he exploited his sex tape for his career. But I’ve been trying to forget about that. Now, still nothing more than a D-lister, Diamond has now moved on to exploiting his former cast members.

According to New York Magazine, Screech Powers is going to have a ghostwriter produce a tell-all about his years on the show. The book, titled Behind the Bell, promises to talk about “sexual escapades among cast members, drug use, and hardcore partying.”

But will it explain how Elizabeth Berkley wound up in Showgirls? If not, I’ll pass.

Steven told the Associated Press that his treatment was for the what came after his procedures. “To have your feet done, to have your leg done, you have to be on narcotics.
