(Newser) – Amy Winehouse was released from the hospital today, but her emphysema scare doesn’t seem to have left much of an impression on the singer. As she emerged from the facility, Winehouse was seen lighting a cigarette, the Daily Mail reports. Though Winehouse has only early-stage lung disease, odds are that was against doctor's orders. But doctors have cleared the singer to perform for Nelson Mandela this weekend.
