Amy Winehouse’s £1 million performance

George Clooney, Julia Roberts offer Winehouse £1 million to perform

A-list pals George Clooney and Julia Roberts have reportedly offered Amy Winehouse £1 million to perform at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute 2008 Spring exhibit on superhero fashion.

The benefit gala, to be held on 5 May, is set to be chaired by legendary designer Giorgio Armani, with George, Julia, and Vogue editor Anna Wintour sitting in as co-chairs, and will feature more than seventy costumes and couture designs from the virtual world of supernatural fashions.

‘Amy was taken a back when she learned that Clooney and Roberts were after her… She hasn’t really taken it in – and keeps saying that her life is getting more surreal by the second,’ says an inside source.

‘After the Grammys, it was expected Amy would be in demand. Clooney and Roberts’ reps have been phoning her offices and sending dozens of emails to convince her to take part. She’s seriously considering their generous offer.’

Adds the source: ‘Giorgio has made no secret to his friends that he would love to work with Amy. He sees this party as an ideal opportunity to sound her out about future projects together.’
