Can you all say it with me…STANS! The Disaya dress worn by Amy on her “Back to Black” album cover sold in the Kerry Taylor Auctions for a charity set up in Amy Winehouse‘s name. Her father said the almost $68,000 bid will be a “wonderful start to the foundation.” Kudos to them for the foundation. Amy was so talented, but $67,120.00 for a dress! I wonder what they’re going to do with it? Wear it? Archive it? Wow. That is all.
With news of Amy Winehouse releasing a posthumous album “Lioness: Hidden Treasures”…we get a taste of what is to come on December 5. A new song has surfaced “Like Smoke” which features NAS. Originally recorded by Winehouse back in 2008…Nas was later added to the track and he includes lyrics referencing the late star’s passing.
Jojo is all grown up these days. She’s been covering lots of songs (including hits by Drake, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars) and she’s added Amy Winehouse’s “You Know I’m No Good” to the list. I’m guessing she’s stirring up the buzz for her upcoming album “Jumping Trains.” Tell us what you think…it’s a pretty tough song to sing. Continue reading
Twenty-seven year old “Back to Black” singer, Amy Winehouse died three months ago and there was no report on the cause of the talented singer’s death, until now. Coroner Suzanne Greenway says, “Ms. Winehouse had consumed sufficient alcohol at 416mg per decilitre [of blood] and the unintended consequence of such potentially fatal levels was her sudden and unexpected death…” Amy had no illegal drugs in her system but with such high levels of alcohol in her body, it stopped her breathing and forced her into a coma. Very, very sad. If this isn’t a lesson in “drinking responsibly, I’m not sure what is. Rest in peace Amy.
