Amy Winehouse cancels entire tour; Penn Badgley cast as Jeff Buckley

A few entertainment headlines on my radar this morning...

In the wake of her incoherent, seemingly drunken performance in Belgrade over the weekend, Amy Winehouse has now canceled her entire 12-city tour. Yesterday, it appeared she would skip just two gigs, but Winehouse’s management issued a statement Tuesday that called the whole thing off. “Despite feeling sure that she wanted to fulfill these commitments, she has agreed with management that she cannot perform to the best of her ability and will return home,” the statement read. Presumably another trip to rehab is imminent. (People)

Penn Badgley of “Gossip Girl” will play Jeff Buckley in abiopic about the singer’s life, “Greetings from Tim Buckley.” (The film will focus on what happens during the days prior to Jeff’s appearance at a tribute concert to his father, Tim. Hence the movie’s name.) The resemblance is definitely there. But is the gravitas? (Update: This Buckley project is different from the one that will be produced by Buckley’s mom, Mary Guibert. An actor has not been cast in the lead yet for that project.) (The Hollywood Reporter)
