Amy Winehouse is back and how. The R&B and soul singer is being flown to the Russian capital by private jet to perform at a billionaire oligarch on New Year’s Eve party. For which Richie Rich is paying her a clean one million pounds (almost $1.5 million). This was her first private gig since 2008 when billionaire Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich paid the rehab singer a whopping £1.5million to sing at the launch of his girlfriend’s Moscow Art Gallery. According to sources, the stage will also be used by the singer to prepare for her upcoming six gigs in Brazil in January that will get her a windfall of around £300,000.
The singer who confesses of “feeling the strongest in a very long time” considers this a “very-needed” financial windfall. On Thursday night, Amy, who landed in Moscow, is staying with her entourage at a £1,700-a-night hotel. And while the details of her very private performance are kept under wraps, what’s crystal clear is the Midas-touch comeback Amy has. And here we thought troubled celeb comebacks are a painful affair. Not this one for sure.
