Amy Winehouse’s dad Mitch Winehouse supposedly told the Daily Mail last week that the cover of Back to Black that Beyonce and Andre 3000 did for The Great Gatsby remake didn’t make his ear holes tingle. Mitch said that he never approved it, but he doesn’t really have a problem with it since they paid a lot of money (the rumor is $100,000) for the rights and that money is going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The full version leaked last night and Mitch went on Twatter and said that he likes Beyonce’s part, but Andre 3000’s part should be torched and its ashes should be molded into a butt plug and shoved up an alley rat’s ass.
I like Beyonces cover and have no probs. monies received will help lots of kids. She can do another cover if she wants. We need the money!
I just heard the Andre part of Back to Black. Terrible. He should have let Beyonce do it all.
The full cover is below and Andre 3000’s part does sound like a wreck. He sounds like he has the hiccups, the burps and the heaves. I don’t even know what he’s doing. It’s like he’s doing vocal warm-ups while a crab tickles his anus. And Beyonce sounds like Beyonce.
And does anybody know which radio station this came from? I don’t think they said it.
