Troubled singers: Winehouse, Spears, Doherty
• Producer Mark Ronson says he and Amy Winehouse have abandoned recording the theme to the latest James Bond film because the singer is not ready to work, the AP reports. She must have thought a Quantum of Solace was some kind of new drug slang.
• Britney Spears can now have expanded visits with her two sons Sean and Jayden after a custody hearing in L.A., the AP says. Of course, whether the tykes are endangered by continued exposure to dad Kevin Federline wasn’t really discussed.
• And just to keep our theme going, Pete Doherty was freed from a London prison after serving just 29 days of a 14-week sentence for violating probation, Reuters reports. But we’re sure he made lots of new friends.
