Subject: Is it time to call Amy Winehouse(?)DONE?

Written By: saver on 06/23/08 at 1:10 am

Was this a flash in the pan talent....now she continues to get word she's falling apart..My feeling, if she keeps it up, there are plenty of other talented people out there.

Which brings up the question..where's HANSON..oh, they are there but who's waiting for them? They are good talents but,.. Just wondering?? ???

They tried to make her go to rehab.

She said no, no, no.  :-\\

I would certainly consider partying with her, as long as no alcoholic bevereges were involved...  :P

I never really got Amy. I just don't know what to really say about her. I just think she needs to get her self better and clean herself up. She used to be really pretty. It's a shame. I hope she straightene's herself out.

Easier said than done.  Despite being told that if she continues her ways, she will die (DUR!), she just doesn't seem to give a crap.  She's like every other addicted person out there....you can't help them unless THEY want the help.  Sad but true fact of life. :-\\

A shame, too.  I think she's really talented.

I heard she is doing better of late, her father was with her in the hospital and her father says she is doing well.. Yes she is very talented I think too.

I think a close listen to her BACK TO BLACK album and her talent as a singer and (very clever) songwriter is more than apparent.
Such a bummer she spends so much of her time completely off her face to appreciate how much her music and obvious ability is loved and appreciated over here...but yeah she should be ashamed of herself for being almost incoherent at several of her UK gigs last year.
Wish she'd get a grip.

She definitely needs to get a grip on her life..she's in a tailspin of self destruction,which usually gets worst before it hopefully  gets better(ala Boy George who has been denied a Visa to come to the United States)
The good part is she is only 24 and hopefully turn her life around and not end up like Janis Joplin.

She definitely has oodles of talent.  If she could only take control of her self-detructive tendencies she could really have a great, long career ahead of her.

Yeah I agree Ninny and thought the same about her age, just such a shame she isn't lucid enough to enjoy her enormous success. She looks like a little doll on her album cover, soo pretty,  now she looks like a complete hag, it's tragic, but I also think she is still devastated after the break up with her love who was a really bad influence on her and she has sadly turned to booze and drugs.  She'll come back.

Maye Amy's family should put her A&E's Intervention.

It might be beneficial to her. She needs to get clean, wash her face, wash her HAIR and eat something. She really needs help.  :-\\

as Ninny says the latest news put out to the media that she has emphysema is her get out clause for not doing that concert..it's very sad  :(

Does anybody know who's filling Amy's place at the concert?


Michael Jackson? (I know he was friends with Mr. Mandela)

Prince?

Hmm?  ;D

But really, I think her condition is more than emphysema. I mean we ALL know that.  :( Poor Amy.

No one is filling in for her because she will be there, singing a version of The Specials Free Nelson Mandela song. She even turned up for rehearsals.

either of those 2 would be great, but if AW is actually performing that's good news...anyway I'm keeping an eye open for when the Jacksons eventually decide to tour the UK..I'll be first in the queue for tickets

I did not see her on stage last night, but did at Glastonbury this evening, and something tells me that her singing of the lyrics to a song are quite not there.

Heh heh,

I think it's to do with Mandela's birthday or something like that.

I just get this weird feeling that Winehouse will be another Janis Joplin.

She is a good performer.  However I fear she'll end up being remembered as a druggie with a lot of talent, much like Jim Morrison.

I didn't like her 'Rehab' song at first, but then it got stuck in my head and now it's kinda catchy. I really hope she gets it together, she has amazing talent. She has an old 1920's charm to her and her music. I wonder sometimes, though how she survived her childhood running around playing in the streets while cars could've hit her. She's so unstable and wild, I'm surprised she's lived for a quarter of a century! Lol.
