Amy Winehouse once sang ‘I ain’t got 70 days,’ when it was suggested she head off to rehab. She shouldn’t have worried -- her most recent stint lasted only her seven days.

Winehouse checked into the Priory Clinic in London last Wednesday, where the singer’s spokesperson Chris Goodman said she was headed to seek ‘assessment’ before taking off on tour across the continent.


Seven days later and voila! Winehouse is out.

Winehouse is ‘raring to go’ for the tour, according to Goodman, and will continue to seek outpatient treatment when necessary.

The singer was last in rehab in January 2008 for a two-week stint to treat various substance abuse issues, as Winehouse copped to using everything from crack cocaine to Ecstasy.
