Troubled pop star Amy Winehouse has canceled a Saturday (Jan. 26) appearance at the NRJ Awards in Cannes, France, after opting to enter a rehab clinic at an undisclosed location.

According to a statement, Winehouse is still planning to attend the Feb. 10 Grammy Awards, where she is nominated for six trophies.

"Amy decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors," reads a statement from the Universal Music Group. "She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction and prepare for her planned appearance at the Grammy Awards."

The statement adds that Winehouse checked into rehab "by mutual agreement."

This week, the artist became the subject of an investigation by Scotland Yard over a video that allegedly shows her smoking crack.
