I love this woman! Her music reminds me of great late 60's to early 70's R&B. It's whisky drenched, floor rattling post-modern Motown. I'd listen to this lady any day over the other vanilla, over-produced "talents" out there, like Britney Spears, K.T. Tunstall, Ashlee Simpson, etc.
Sure, Amy has lots of problems in her life, but it seems like she's trying to get her life together. Here's hoping she'll be rocking that beehive for lots of years to come!
Amy Winehouse may have a great voice, but she's also an obvious junkie.
She may be talented, but I don't believe she deserves fame until she gets her life together. She is hardly a role model. Like it or not, a part of fame is being a role model.
DESERVE FAME??? LOLOLOLOL!!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!! LOLOLOLOL!!!
~~~what a bunch of heavy-handed crap. Clueless finger-pointing from unfamous people. Nobody answers to this media obsessed culture of ours anymore. They all think we are rediculous which we are.
THIS IDEA OF DICTATING HOW FAMOUS PEOPLE SHOULD BEHAVE IS SO STUPID & IT'S EXACTLY WHY THEY RUN IN AND OUT OF REHAB EVERYDAY!
Who made them famous? D'ya think of that?
The irony of her singing about and also probably desperately needing Rehab is why it was honored with all those Grammys. Art imitates Life and reflects Truth. Got it?
Sorry to those of you who didn't need to hear that but it sure had to be said.
Amy Winehouse is so so talented. Her behviour shouldn't even be part of the conversation.
I have a recording of her doing a reggae version of Sam Cooke's 'Cupid' that will break your heart and I have her doing a cover of "Will You still Love Me Tomorrow?" Same thing. Amazing.
She has an amazing voice, but sadly she isn't going to last long if she doesn't get herself together.
Over populated and the music aint right great, Everytime i see or hear of her its all about the drugs she is on and what she did with a crack pipe.
Na i aint a fan of her.
If drug addiction is the criterion for good music, one would have to throw out half of the great jazz ever played. Yes it is sad, and I don't romanticize drugs. She is a mess. But that album with Rehab on it is really good.
Junkie or not, I love Amy's music.
"They tried to make me go to rehab but I said 'no, no, no'"
Artists with drug problems usually make the best music, or artwork or entertainment. It's the sad truth. The worse part is, they don't penalized for it like your average joe would.
I like her music, but i will not buy her music and support her drug habit
I try not to judge people who are ill. I don't expect musicians to be my role models. If we judged all artists on how they live their lives we wouldn't celebrate any of them.
She's a rare talent. One of the best around. And quite probably more in control than you might think.
I like her song Rehab, but if she continues the way she is going it is going to be very bad.
I think the drugs are taking away her talent. I don't think she is as talent as people are making her out to be. I have her CD and it was all just about drugs, addiction, depression,obsession and sex. Very one dimensional.
I agree about the songs, but they aren't her strength. IT'S THAT VOICE.

I'm sure you've all heard about this sad, sad news. She was a music legend and although we may remember her for her troubled life, this story really hit me hard and got me quite upset. She was obviously very desperate for a long time and although she had the most help she could possibly get from...

Why do so many people care that Amy Winehouse died?She was not a genius. She was a musician who had 2 albums and 11 singles. She was a drug addict, just like millions of other drug addicts in this world. Why do you care that she died? Did you know her, were you her friend?

Toxicology reports will either confirm her family's theory-- or not. In the meantime, there IS a lesson to be learned here. Just as you can die from alcohol poisoning, you can, if your body is used to a steady level of alcohol, die from acute alcohol withdrawal.If you think you're at risk for...
