(Newser) – Though her hit song may deny it, Amy Winehouse is going to rehab, E! reports. The Grammy-nominated singer today checked herself into an undisclosed drug-treatment facility a day after police began investigating a video in which she inhales from a smoking glass pipe. No word yet whether Winehouse, 24, will still perform at the Grammys in Los Angeles next month.

The incriminating footage was first published online Tuesday by British tabloid the Sun, and was then turned over to authorities. Winehouse has a hit song, "Rehab," in which she  insists she won't "go, go, go" into a treatment facility. Winehouse's father said he was actually grateful the video was released, adding, "It may finally be the thing to focus her mind and convince her to get the help she needs to quit for good."
