Amy Winehouse will not perform at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sept. 9, her U.S. record label confirmed to the Associated Press.

"In a continued effort to support Amy Winehouse's well being, in addition to the postponement of her U.S. tour, all other U.S. appearances have been canceled," Universal Republic Records said in a statement.

The 23-year-old Winehouse – currently on vacation in St. Lucia with husband Blake Fielder-Civil – was hospitalized Aug. 8 and treated for exhaustion, the start of a roller coaster ride of canceled commitments and impassioned pleas from her parents and in-laws to stop taking drugs. All of her U.S. appearances have been postponed until 2008.

Earlier this month, the singer and her husband checked into a retreat in Essex where, Fielder-Civil said, "The main thing is that me and Amy are getting better."
