Chanteuse Amy Winehouse has sung all over the world. Now she can add a Moscow bus shelter to her list of glamorous venues.

Back To Black star Amy performed her one-off private gig last Thursday to celebrate the opening of a new art gallery set up by Daria Zhukova, the girlfriend of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich.

The troubled diva was reportedly paid £1 million for her one-hour set, with Chelsea FC owner Roman flying her to the event in his private jet.

Hosted by beautiful brunette Daria, a former model, 300 celebrities and famous faces from the art world gathered for the glitzy inauguration of The Garage. The building was a former bus shelter and is twice the size of a football pitch.

"Amy thoroughly enjoyed herself," said the singer's spokesman.

"She was very happy to play her part in the restoring of such a great building to its future use as a space for contemporary art."
