Winehouse Blues

Posted in Not the Job by 200

Working with a shift mainly made up of women, I get to see an awful lot of trashy celeb magazines. I don’t generally read them as I’ve no interest in the lives of the rich & stupid, and to be honest, I’m fed up to the back teeth with people of questionable talent who suddenly achieve riches beyond most people’s wildest dreams and don’t have the first idea how to control it.

I’m sick to the back teeth of hearing about how Amy Winehouse needs help. As far as I’m concerned the only help she requires is to divest her of a significant proportion of her massive riches (in the form of some hefty fines) & a spell between the four walls of one of Her Majesty’s finest establishments. I was somewhat gratified that the USA appear to be taking a step in the right direction by refusing a visa to the drug-crazed bint. What a pity that the people who run the Grammy’s aren’t following the same line and are allowing her to perform via satellite link.

A good start would be for the Grammys to refuse to have anything to do with her, all radio stations to take her off their play-lists & then the message might get round that she is an appalling roll model for youngsters who just get to see that drugs misuse & huge earnings are acceptable partners & there are no consequences to illegal & ill-advised behaviour.

If she wants to snort mind-altering substances up her nose, I really don’t have any problems with that, it’s her life. But I don’t see why she should profit whilst doing so.

    Of course, seeing the state of Amy Winehouse is enough to put many people off anything stronger than junior aspirin…..

    Isn’t it strange, however, how many talented and creative people completely screw up their lives? Amy Winehouse is just following in the steps of Keith Moon and others.

    At last, someone who has the same view as me of this stupid druggy tart who can (apparently) sing a bit. When the young people, mainly females, see such as Winehouse and her mate ‘Sniffer’ Moss and think that taking drugs is a good thing they don’t realise that there is an army of hangers-on and fawning tabloid hacks who are only too happy to make them seem like victims. The fact that Sniffer apparently has the skin of a 50 year old and a rapidly disappearing septum is sorted out by digital imagery. No chance of that for Sharon, Kaycee or L’Iza down at the community centre. When will they learn?

    I would like to see the makers of television programs prosecuted for promoting the drug culture by featuring it in every film, games show, chat show etc etc and continually making jokes about it as if it were something to be proud of.
