As Amy Winehouse rolls around in the gigantic filthy ballet slipper that is heaven, everybody has a million words to say about her death, music and addiction to the bad shit. Russell Brand wrote a long piece on his time with Amy and his thoughts on addiction. And of course, the self-proclaimed Captain Save-a-Ho Courtney Love told Rolling Stone that she tried to knife fight Amy’s demons twice.
Amy’s father Mitch Winehouse was at JFK in NYC when he found out about his daughter’s death and he immediately jumped back on a plane to be with his family in London. Mitch, Amy’s mom Janis and her brother together issued this statement:
“Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives,” the Winehouse family tells Us Weekly in a statement. “We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time.”
Before she asked for privacy, Janis told The Daily Mirror that she spent a little time with Amy on Friday and her daughter told her she loved her before she went left. Janis said that Amy seemed completely out of it on Friday and she knew this day was coming, “but her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me.”
Amy’s autopsy has been scheduled for tomorrow and Scotland Yard is telling the media not to assume that she died of a bad shit overdose. But the Daily Mirror is hearing that Amy twirled into The 27 Club from filling her body with a bad ecstasy pill and a lake full of booze, which many ravers have told me not to do. During my ten second-long raver days (I couldn’t burn my Elmo backpack and JNCO jeans fast enough), sensei ravers always warned my ass that booze and ecstasy went together like weed and vegetables. In other words, they don’t.
Oh, and what about BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE?! Blaaaaaaake is currently locked up in the chokey, but his mom tells The Daily Star that she’s putting him on suicide watch, because she says Amy’s death will push him into a bad place. Georgette Fielder-Civil said, “Blake will kill himself. He won’t make it without her. He will be devastated, totally and utterly devastated. He’ll go straight back to self-harming. I’ll have to ring the prison and he’ll have to be put on watch. He was always ringing her and she was always ringing him. Blake always wanted her back. She couldn’t walk away from him and he couldn’t walk away from her. Her and Blake were both lost and we handled it badly.”
Wait. Blaaaaaake is STILL in prison? They should shackle his ankles and let him out for Amy’s funeral, because it wouldn’t be right if she was buried without Blaaaaaake throwing himself on her casket while screaming, “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaamy.”
