Amy Winehouse threatens crowd and the Pipettes almost catch fire!

It would be funny if… OK, I think it's just funny, but I suppose to balance the global budget of loony female singers, Amy Winehouse is perilously close to becoming "Britney UK" these days. In fact, the BBC reports that Amy was booed off stage during the opening night of her UK tour and proceeded to threaten the audience when they booed her husband, who, by the way, is currently in jail accused of witness tampering. 

Back stateside, the much less controversial Pipettes seem to be much hotter than Amy lately — hot enough to set a monitor on fire onstage! No one was injured during the Boston show, but it had to get cut short. {Hat tip to NME for that}.

And if the Pipettes couldn't get cuter, here they are in cartoon form!
