Winehouse's beau to convert ahead of shmancy Jewish wedding

The Sunday Mirror reports,

Rock chick Amy Winehouse will ditch her wild image to marry her fiance in a traditional Jewish wedding this summer.
And the Rehab singer’s man, Blake Fielder-Civil, has even agreed to convert to her religion for the big day.
The pair, famed for their wild drink binges, plan an intimate ceremony just for friends and family.
Tattooed Amy, 23, will swap her skimpy tops and skinny jeans for a white wedding dress.
Scruffy ex-barman Blake, 24, who has told pals he will do anything to make his future wife happy, is expected to don a skullcap and morning suit.
A friend of the couple said: “Amy has asked Blake to convert to Judaism. He isn’t religious so it’s no skin off his nose. He will do anything she wants and has spoken to her dad about it.
“Their wedding will be a traditional Jewish ceremony. For Blake and Amy, family is very important.
“They are very close to their parents so they will want them all to be there. It’s not going to be as rock and roll as you’d expect.” The couple will drink seven glasses of wine during the ceremony, where a rabbi will preside, and exchange gold rings.
Blake will break a glass on the floor with his right foot to mark the start of their marriage before the couple host a lavish party.

Full story.
It’ll be okay, Michael. I promise. Give it a year, at best, and you’ll be in the running again…

  1. The couple will drink seven glasses of wine during the ceremony,
    Is that a reference to their wild drinking past or someone’s misinterpretation of sheva berachot?

  2. Is that a reference to their wild drinking past or someone’s misinterpretation of sheva berachot?
    Or perhaps somebody read the bride would do seven hakafot after spending one too many Simchat Torahs at a Lubavitch shul?

  3. My, my, marital bliss for Amy? did Coachella really go that far to her head?
    Who knows….maybe she’s learned something from those other old school bad asses….”Don’t believe the …..”
    Nahhh, I saw photos of all that funky desert shat….it’s the SoCal disease that’s convincing her that celebrity+kabalala=lalalala….ahhhhh, feels good, the spiritual sources we – esp. our poor celebrities – get meaning from these days….

  4. Wow, was I really being cynical. so…
    Dear Amy,
    I take it all back; my best “Mazel Tov,” please send me some pictures after the wedding, I just want proof that you’re not going to become that good-a-girl…
    Sincerely,
    Your CAli contingent – eastside.
