Winehouse cuts tour after poor showing

LONDON »Amy Winehouse is canceling part of her European tour, after the singer was booed for a disastrous concert in Serbia.

Winehouse is canceling concerts today in Istanbul and Wednesday in Athens, her publicity company, Outside Organization, said Sunday.

The concert Saturday in Serbia's capital, Belgrade, kicked off a 12-date tour of Europe. Winehouse, who has struggled with drugs and alcohol, was jeered as she stumbled onto the stage, mumbled through her songs and sometimes wandered off. She dropped the microphone and occasionally disappeared.

Serbian media described the concert before about 20,000 fans as a "scandal" and a "disaster."

Tickets cost about $57, very expensive in a country where average salaries are about $428 a month.

‘Bold and Beautiful' nets best-drama Emmy

LAS VEGAS » "The Bold and the Beautiful" won drama series honors for the third consecutive year at the Daytime Emmys on Sunday night in a bittersweet ceremony that marked the impending daytime departures of two veteran soap operas along with Regis Philbin and talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.

Executive producer Bradley Bell accepted the trophy, saying, "It's over the top. We're so grateful."

Bell saluted his late father, William Bell, who created "The Young and the Restless" and gave the younger Bell his start in the business. "Dad, we did it," he said. "Happy Father's Day."

Laura Wright, who plays Carly Corinthos on "General Hospital," won her first Emmy. "Hell, yeah!" she said, thrusting the trophy high. "This has been 20 years of the best career ever."

Michael Park, who plays Jack Snyder on CBS' "As the World Turns," earned lead actor honors.

Scott Clifton won younger actor honors as Liam Cooper on "The Bold and the Beautiful" and Brittany Allen of "All My Children" earned the show's final Emmy, winning for younger actress. She is no longer playing the role of Marisa Chandler.

The ABC soap opera, along with the network's "One Life to Live," are leaving the air after more than 40 years because of declining ratings.

"My heart breaks for all these people that this is not going to be a part of their lives," she said about the show's impending demise. "Having just gone through something like this, I survived. It was scary, but change is a good thing and it opens the door for new opportunities."
