I heard this afternoon that singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her Londan, England apartment at the very young age of 27 years old and I have to say that while I was really disappointed, I was not at all surprised.
It was probably a year or 2 ago when I did a blog post about the up and coming female role models who were getting all the press and publicity. Lindsay Lohan – thief, druggie, alcoholic and party in a package was one OD away from death or being in jail for life. Nicknamed “fire crotch” for being caught without her panties on one too many times, even Lohan gave Brittney Spears a run for her money. Spears – mother of 2 young kids, also loved being caught without her panties on. Spears was one talented singer who melted down in front of the world after shaving her head in a very public way. Unstable?!? You could say that. And then there was Amy Winehouse. Deep, beautiful voice, but with those crazy tattoos and unable to stay clean from anything. She looked emaciated, stoned and bombed all the time until forced into rehab way too many times. The last time we heard from her, she was booed off stage during a comeback tour when she was unable to remember her lines. Even her band and back-up singers were trying to help her along, to no avail.
So when Winehouse walked off the stage, many people knew it was probably for the last time ever. She was clearly unable to get over this addiction and it ended up over-taking her and costing her her life. Ironic that her hit song was called “Rehab” and it that song she sings that she is not going to rehab, “no no no” and it was that philosophy that see’s her dead way before her time.
So can we finally move on to better role models for our young daughters please? That Taylor Swift looks pretty wholesome… Or Selena Gomez…
Public Service Announcement: Kiddies… It make be cool to your friends to drink and do drugs, but once you start, sometimes you can’t stop. Just stay away!
So who do you think is going to star in the movie based on her life, and which of the “starlets” do you think is next to fall?
