(Newser) – Whacked out singer Amy Winehouse appeared to lunge for an audience member in the pit yesterday in her first British gig in 7 months, reports the Daily Telegraph. She also blasted headliner Jay-Z, saying he’s “got some front to come here with tunes you don’t even remember," mumbled between songs and said her husband would be “out of jail” soon. In other words, pretty much par for the Winehouse course.

But fans at Britain’s Glastonbury Festival seemed satisfied with the music. “I thought her singing voice excellent as always but between songs, the way she led into them seemed a bit confused,” said one. Winehouse, diagnosed with emphysema last week, is set to return to the hospital today.
