    Spinner reports that Roots drummer ?uestlove is working on a supergroup featuring troubled, bee-hived singer Amy Winehouse. But there is a wee bit of international drama preventing the pair from getting this project up off the ground and running. ?uestlove told Spinner that "[the supergroup is] definitely going to happen — it's just that we have to work overtime to get her visa situation together," he revealed. "The closest she can come to the States is Jamaica." The hip-hopper said that he hopes to discuss shit with Winehouse in the flesh when The Roots hit France next week. In the interim, ?uestlove said that the pair are "Skype-ing the shit out of each other." Collaborating through Skype? It's not shocking. I am surprised more bands don't do this. It's such a "right now" method of communicating.

    Who else could ?uestlove recruit for this project? Will Winehouse get her shit together long enough to do this right? Or has Winehouse jumped the shark?
