(Newser) – Amy Winehouse cried tears of joy in a London airport as she returned to England today after 8 months on the Caribbean island of St. Lucia, the Daily Mail reports. “She’s really happy to be back and can't wait to catch up with family and friends,” a spokesman said. Winehouse’s stay on the island was plagued by complaints about her drunken antics. Before leaving, she took a farewell walk on the beach with one of her adopted stray dogs.
