Amy Winehouse calls Caribbean home

Amy Winehouse said she likes being back in the UK to work on her third album, but considers the Caribbean her home now

Amy Winehouse likes being back in the UK, but considers the Caribbean her home.

The 'Back To Black' singer returned to her native England last month to work on her third album, but said she plans to return to her adopted home, the island of St Lucia, where she enjoyed an extended break earlier this year.

She said: "I'm going to be in London for a while now. I'm not going to go home for a while.

"I've got a lot of stuff with my record company to sort out. This is a new chapter for me. I've got some things we're very excited about, definitely. I like being back."

Amy – who was recently granted the first stages in a divorce from husband Blake Fielder-Civil – also said she has no plans to find another man, and made reference to her heartbreak, saying: "Cry yourself to sleep because that obviously helps."

The 25-year-old singer also admitted she doesn't have much of a head for the business side of her success, which includes her own label, Lioness - to which she has signed her teenage goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield.

Amy added to Britain's News Of The World newspaper: "I went into business about seven years ago when I first signed my publishing deal. But I'm not good with that side of things. I'm good at the creativeness.

"The record company director is me, but all me and Dionne do is creative, we're not good at dealing with business. That's not us, that's bulls**t."
