Amy winehouse dating 2016

And when Amy Winehouse died this weekend (see Sasha Frere-Jones’s Postscript), Brand, who is a former heroin addict, wrote a tribute to the singer on his Web site (it was later reprinted in the ) that ends up being one of the most interesting bits of commentary in this whole mess.It’s hard to say much about a young woman hell-bent on destroying herself, even when that young woman is supremely talented, but Brand manages to sketch out an affecting portrait: When I first met her around Camden she was just some twit in a pink satin jacket shuffling round bars with mutual friends, most of whom were in cool indie bands or peripheral Camden figures Withnail-ing their way through life on impotent charisma.‘I feel like, if somebody had made it crystal clear – even though it was kinda clear to me: “Amy’s going to die tomorrow” – I would’ve gone to her house that night obviously and kicked the door down and do what I needed to do.’ As a recovering drug addict himself though, Russell knows that’s easier said than done, and how hard it is to ‘get clean and co-operate.’ Even when Russell first met the talented singer, he knew there was something there.

Even without the reference to “Withnail & I,” the great mid-eighties British comedy about unemployed actors, it’s a lovely sentence: precise and unsentimental.

Brand recalls his bemusement at hearing that Winehouse was a “jazz singer”; it struck him as “bizarrely anomalous in that crowd,” and “placed Amy beyond an invisible boundary of relevance.” The recollection is set into a broader portrait of addiction that includes an unsparing self-portrait: I was myself at that time barely out of rehab and was thirstily seeking less complicated women so I barely reflected on the now glaringly obvious fact that Winehouse and I shared an affliction, the disease of addiction.

Still, in her short career, Winehouse earned Grammy Awards for Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.

For all his attempts to convince us otherwise, Russell Brand is not an idiot.

The timestamp is only as accurate as the clock in the camera, and it may be completely wrong.

Amy Winehouse’s unexpected death from alcohol poisoning in 2011 sparked newfound sympathy and interest in the singer, who became more known for her personal problems than her talent.

But in what’s most interesting about the piece is not what it says about celebrity, but what it says about talent.Unlike other rock stars who died young from drugs, Winehouse produced relatively little music—her output can’t compare in size to that of Hendrix or Morrison or Joplin or Cobain.It hurtles from her messing about on camera-phones in cars to wobbly film of her early sessions to footage of concerts and red carpets.
