Amy Winehouse "furious" with Mark Ronson
(showbizspy) - Amy Winehouse is said to be "furious" with pal Mark Ronson after he said the troubled singer was "not ready to record any music".
Ronson, 32, confirmed that his plans to record the Bond theme tune for new movie Quantum Of Solace with Winehouse had been put on hold, saying, "I don't think so unless by some miracle of science it gets recorded and someone sings a vocal on it, so probably not.
"We tried to work for a little bit. I'm not sure she's ready to work on music yet."
But Amy is furious over Mark's comments, prompting the 'Rehab' singer's team to release the following statement.
"That is unhelpful, to say the very least," read the statement. "Amy and the rest of the team are furious by what Ronson has said.
"Amy wasn't happy with the finished product and let her feelings known. The whole things smacks of sour grapes. Amy is more than capable of working at the moment despite a turbulent few weeks. In fact, throwing herself into her music is very much an escape for her at the moment."
Amy and Mark have previously worked together successfully on her 2006 album Back to Black, which sold 5.5 million copies and was the biggest selling album of 2007.
Amy's rep added: "Mark presented a track to Amy, but she had other ideas about the direction it should take.
"She has always made her own decisions about her music. Needless to say, this is part of the process between artist and producer and we're sure they'll continue to make great music together."
