Breakout phenom British singer Amy Winehouse (who could be a stand-in for Diana Ross circa The Supremes) is getting married this Summer and wants a traditional Jewish wedding. Unfortunately for Amy, her fiance is not Jewish which requires that he undergo the necessary conversion before he can be “fit” to go under the Chupah. The glitch is that the wedding is slated for the Summer and a typical conversion can take over a year (not including circumcision). Clearly Winehouse found a more (er, um) lenient rabbi to perform the conversion.
Well Kudos to Amy and Mazel Tov on the marriage. We only hope it lasts longer than fellow Jewish mystical follower Britney Spears.
ps In lieu of the possible complications that might arise from this conversion and the trademark Rocker-style squabbles that might ensue between now and then, Michael, you may still have a chance to squeeze yourself in.
