But What Will the Goyim Think?

From yesterday's New York Fishwrap Post:

AMY JUST CAN'T GET HER SHIRT TOGETHER
By DAN KADISON

December 4, 2007 -- Oh, no, no, no.

Troubled "Rehab" singer Amy Winehouse takes a barefoot walk around chilly East London at 5:40 a.m. on Sunday, while wearing only a bra and jeans. Winehouse, 24, had been partying at a friend's house before she was spotted muttering on the cold streets, the London Sun reported in yesterday's editions. "Amy came out and started stumbling around," one onlooker told the paper. "She popped her head over the fence like she was looking for something. "It was freezing, and she had no shoes and just a red bra," the onlooker added. "She was mumbling something incomprehensible. It wasn't the behavior of someone in the right state of mind."

Winehouse's representative told The Sun that the British R&B singer had been awakened by a sound and simply was out looking for what had caused it. "Amy had been asleep and heard a noise," the representative said. "She went outside to investigate. She didn't realize the time."


God, I love Winehouse. Seriously -- I just think it's so cool that the Keith Richards of her generation is a Jewish woman.

Apparently they just issued her UK debut here in the States. I'd love to see more of her (that has nothing to do with the posted article, I swear!), and hope she can at least be a functioning adult for the next coupla years. Y'know, less Pete Doherty-esque.

Not sure she'll be able to carry off the black teeth quite as well, though ...

And my "word verification is "oyyftw" ... oy!

[winces]

it's upsetting because she really does have talent and it's hard to see her ridiculed and lumped in with Britney, Lindsey, etal. Even if she's the one responsible.

Let's hope she has the last laugh.

I don't mean to be as snarky as I probably sounded -- I really do think she's great, and I hope she doesn't join that stupid "27" club...

Steve:

Re: The stupid "27" club--I presume you're referring to the list of musicians (Hendrix, Cobain, Morrison, Joplin, Brian Jones, et al) that dug themselves an early grave at that age. Unfortunately, at the rate it's going, she might not last long enough to achieve even that. In the meantime, it's unfortunate that not only is she being lumped in with the other train wrecks of 2007 that Virgotex mentioned, but that she is being so typecast by one song that the remainder of her album has become nonexistent in the eyes of radio programmers. If she ever does get her act together, probably even if she doesn't, Winehouse will likely regret having written that song.

Well, Pete Townsend has survived "Hope I die before I get old"....

I'm hoping she makes it...

TMink said...

I hope she makes it as well. She needs to get sober like yesterday. Otherwise she will die. I never, well rarely, worried about Keith falling over dead. And he seems to enjoy his chemical recreation more than Amy does.

Maybe that is the difference between a drunk waste case (Keif) and an addict (Amy.)

Or as was famously said of the guy who got kicked out of the Replacements and finally died of excess -- Bob Stimpson? --

Anyway, Tommy the bass player's older brother...

There's a difference between liking to get fucked up and needing to get fucked up...

virgotex said...

AND.....she just got SIX Grammy nominations.

This should be interesting.

Ain't that the truth!

I could add: There's a difference between liking to get fucked up and needing to get fucked up and just being fucked up.
