Winehouse recounted a meeting with the newly knighted singer and labelmate at a recent awards ceremony, where she refused to stand -- or allow her father to stand -- during an ovation for U2. The firecracker singer mumbled "shut up" throughout Bono's acceptance speech, and when he later introduced himself, saying it was "lovely to meet you," all Winehouse could muster was a cool kiss-off of "Thank you for funding my albums.
