Now that all the hubbub surround Jetblue's inaugural flight to Saint Lucia is over, we're free to focus on the important things, like getting on the beach and into the warm Caribbean waters, and that's exactly what we did yesterday afternoon during a scuba dive at the northern tip of the island, from the Cariblue Beach at the BodyHoliday LeSPORT resort.
It's weird to think that we've been diving for over 11 years now, and yet we learn new things each time we let out all the air and sink beneath the surface. And so for all you seasoned and wannabe divers, we'll let you in on a few things you've just got to know about diving here in the southern Caribbean, but specifically Saint Lucia because duhwe've got the recent firsthand experience.
Our top tips for free and easy SCUBA in Saint Lucia, after the jump.
Her rep says the concert was cut short because of heavy rain. However, she did make it on stage as this video from YouTube shows. Except it took her quite some time to get it started (around the 1:50 mark.) BV Newswire reports:
Adorned in her trademark beehive, heavy mascara and a slinky electric blue minidress, the 'You Know I'm No Good' singer seemed to struggle to remember some of her best known recorded material, mumbled through a few verses and guzzled an unknown concoction while on stage. Although audiences seemed to weather the storm, one thing became apparent: Winehouse didn't.
Amy reportedly walked off midway through the set, never even performing "Rehab." That's when the "Blame it on the Rain" excuse came in, even though the stage was encased and covered by a roof. Note to all future Amy Winehouse concert ticket-holders: Please try to get a refund now.

Last week we wrote about a man who was unsuccessfully trying to get into the U.K.; now we've found the person whose place he could take, if immigration worked like that. Having only recently returned home from Jamaica, Amy Winehouse is trying desperately to get out again -- but as with the '08 Grammys, she won't be getting into America so easily.
Winehouse's problem is not the rumors of drug use nor her connection to potentially-soon-to-be-ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who was recently released from prison. Rather, the retro-fantastic singer was charged with assault after allegedly hitting a fan who snapped a picture of her, and will have to appear in court next week. No visa means no performance at California's trumpeted Coachella festival next month, where sun-drenched music lovers will have to content themselves with other acts like Morrissey and the Killers.
Having seen Winehouse in a festival setting similar to Coachella's in 2007, it's perhaps not the best venue to see her in -- but since she doesn't seem to be doing any cabaret tours, we'd say she is worth the ticket price in all her wackiness. Worth traveling for? Well, that's another story.

So news broke this week that Jennifer Aniston allegedly got a $56,000 haircut before heading off on her latest promotional jaunt as her adorable-dog movie "Marley and Me" debuts in Europe. Well, it wasn't just a haircut; that included plane tickets and other travel arrangements for her stylist as well as daily do's. Celebrities! They so crazy!
Well, with all due respect, Aniston isn't getting bailed out by the federal government to keep her tresses shipshape. It's her money and she might as well blow it on something that keeps her happy. Plus, she's helping the travel industry, one stylist at a time. Who else is saving travel as we know it one flight at a time? Check our gallery to find out.

Since sheís been menacing the Caribbean since December, Amy Winehouse hasnít graced London with her presence for a while. Most of us are rejoicing that we donít have to see her nightly escapades in the papers every day. But itís a bit of a blow for The Hawley Arms. The Camden pub is her local drinking hole, and whenever Amyís around, itís guaranteed to get mentioned in the press.
But for us lot, Amyís absence could be a good thing. Because it means that, instead of being crammed with journalists feigning nonchalance as they stalk the Winehouse, you might even get a seat.

Around the world, the last New Year's Eve overpartiers are finally crawling into work--but not your favorite celebrities. We figure anyone on a beach this week is just rubbing it in, so let's examine the culprits:
"Heroes" costars Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia walked along a beach in Bora Bora toward their private villa. Also in the Pacific, Kate Moss took her boyfriend Jamie Hince to Surin Beach on Phuket, where she once got married (in a non-binding ceremony) to ex Pete Doherty. Might history repeat itself?
Meanwhile, among those dipping their toes into the Atlantic were Amy Winehouse, who seemed not to leave her house in 2008 at all until this trip to St. Lucia. Jude Law stepped off the London set of "Sherlock Holmes" long enough to take his kids to Copacabana Beach in Rio. And the celebrity-ridden beaches of Cabo provided Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli with a beach holiday and Jennifer Aniston a potential respite from the rumors about her very Mayer Christmas. Must be nice! We're going to go put another sweater on.

Only a geographic imbecile would confuse Spain and Brazil, two countries dissimilar in size, language and continent. But if you're looking for the Rock in Rio concert taking place this weekend, better pack your Spanish-English dictionary: After three editions in Brazil, the fest is expanding its reach and has already held concert blowouts in Lisbon and Madrid.
Organizers are banking that the words "Rock in Rio" can become a brand like Bonnaroo or Lollapalooza, not just a callback to the home of samba and Gisele. This final weekend of Rock in Rio, held in the Madrid suburb of Arganda del Rey, will feature The Police, Franz Ferdinand, Amy Winehouse and Bob Dylan.
Tickets start at 65 ($102) a day.

A British woman, who amazingly isn't Amy Winehouse, was arrested at Trondheim Airport in Norway wearing a large wig:
Concealing 2.2 pounds of cocaine glued to her head.
The bewigged coke carrier was coming off a flight from Copenhagen and had the drugs glued so firmly to her head that she had to be hospitalized to de-stick the contraband from her real hair, a local newspaper said.
Before Amy and others with outrageous dos get too excited about the coke-cloaking potential of their beehives, they should take note that this drug mule's downfall came directly as a result of her unusual hair. According to the AP, customs agents stopped the woman because they "suspected that she was wearing a wig."

Amy Winehouse said yes, yes, yes to a private gig at a new gallery in Russia this weekend. The "Rehab" singer was paid a reported $2 million to sing at the opening of the Center for Contemporary Culture, a new art museum in Moscow operated by the wife of entrepreneur and football team owner Roman Abramovich.
In its past life the CCC was actually a bus garage designed by famous Russian architect Konstantin Melnikov, before Daria Zhukova saw its potential as a loftlike gallery space.
We bet Amy's powerful pipes rang out from there to Odessa--unfortunately, after the singer's return to London she ended up making an unscheduled trip to the hospital amid rumors of a collapse.

The story at last night's Grammy Awards was largely about who didn't make it to the show, not who did: Because of an eleventh-hour visa rejection, award frontrunner Amy Winehouse couldn't leave rehab to sing "Rehab" nor to pick up any of her five trophies.
Of course, maybe Kanye West would rather have skipped the awards when he once again lost Album of the Year--this time to Herbie Hancock for his Joni Mitchell concept album "River: The Joni Letters."
Rihanna performed and picked up an award for best Rap/Sung Collaboration with Jay-Z, a trinket that probably was comforting when she got into a wee fender-bender on the way out. Elsewhere, Barack Obama won a Grammy for the audio version of his latest book, beating out former president Bill Clinton in a coincidence that says absolutely nothing about the election.
