Amy Winehouse became famous for her self-destructive behaviour, including: physical injuries & a drug addiction.In 2007 Amy Winehouse had a paronychia on her right middle finger.

Since 2007 Amy Winehouse’s problems with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as self-destructive behaviour, became regular tabloid news. An early example of the many physical injuries was the ‘paronychia’ on her right hand middle finger which was spotted in september 2007:

The Guardian reported:

“Amy Winehouse has hurt her finger. That’s the news this morning. How she did it, nobody knows, though surely it won’t be long before some news organisation suggests contacting the Portuguese police about it.

All we can tell you is this: La Winehouse’s right middle finger is swollen above the top knuck and has turned the colour of a red Skittle. There also appears to be a little problem around the cuticle area, with a certain unevenness apparent in the pics posted by both Vicky Newton and 3am this morning of the singer attending a performance of the popular musical Chicago.

Though the reason for the injury is unknown, speculation is rife. Vick, using her fabled gothic humour, posits: “I’ve narrowed it down to stabbing it with a hairpin putting up her beehive or burning it lighting a fag.” Others have suggested that she has, innocently, contracted some kind of fungal infection. But, whatever the cause, the big question remains: what does it all mean? And the even bigger question, too: why bother publishing the photo in the first place?

The answers to these questions are: don’t know and, also, really don’t know. We just thought you would want to know about it. That’s all.”

In 2008, Winehouse faced a series of health complications that threatened both her career and her life. In 2009 the UK singer returned occasionally on the stage and announced working on new music projects, while her problems continued (in june her father said in an interview that she was in a drug replacement programme and in september media reported that she has started a dental dental reconstruction to improve her teeth after her battle against dring and drugs).
