Hey, remember that Seinfeld episode where Kramer wants to get a tan to impress his new girlfriend’s family? And then he ends up falling asleep in the tanning bed and shows up to her parents’ place all burned and lobster-like?
Ha. Yeah. That was a good one.
According to the Mirror, Amy Winehouse‘s life imitated art when she took a hungover nap in her home tanning bed and emerged a nice crimson color with “raw and puffy” eyes. The source said:
“Amy has recently had a sunbed installed in her new house and was keen to try it out. She’s developed quite a solid base colour from her two- month holiday in
she’d had a bit of a heavy night the evening before and was a little
too relaxed by the time she clambered into the bed – and promptly fell
asleep. Luckily, the bed has an automatic timer which goes off
after 20 minutes – otherwise the results could have been really
horrific. As it was, she emerged badly burnt, with her eyes
particularly affected. Within an hour, her eyelids were red raw and puffy, and she was feeling in real pain. She wanted to call the doctor but was a little embarrassed. Poor Amy is mortified. Not to mention sore. All in all, it wasn’t a great weekend.”
Oh, what we would do for a visual to go along with this delightful tale. But the biggest concern? Why in God’s name is Amy Winehouse bashful about a little sunburn?
This is the same woman who cavorted topless in St. Lucia, stole drinks and hissed at tourists, terrorized the streets of Camden cracked out in dirty ballet flats and assaulted a man on a plane for looking at her.
And she’s coy about a sunburn?
