Mark Ronson has rigorously denied a recent newspaper report that claimed he was furious with Amy Winehouse for not turning up to a video shoot, calling it “a crock of shite.”
A British Tabloid claimed the producer and master of shite cover versions was irate for Wino because she didn’t turn up for the shoot of Valerie, apparently opting to go on holiday instead.
Writing on his blog, he said: “Argh, I hate that I even have to address this ‘cause it’s such a crock of shite, but I must clear this up…
“Some daily paper published a completely fictionalised story about me being "furious" with Amy for not turning up to the video shoot for our song and swearing never to work with her again. It's all bullshite, all of it.
"Originally, neither of us were gonna be in the video. Then, I'd known for weeks Amy wasn't gonna be in the video.
"The entire premise of the video (conceived by the director, Robert Hale) revolved around her not being in it. I knew she was going on holiday, etc etc & was fine with all of it.
"There wasn't one thing on the entire page that was true, except for the part about my sordid romp in the bathroom of a Soho nightclub with a tranny, midget hooker named Perry."
