I've been a Winehouse fan since I first saw the video "Rehab" on youtube about a year ago. I think in a world that is becoming more fake day to day, it's really refreshing to see a real artist that writes and sings their own songs.

Yes, Amy is a druggie and a hot mess but she as real as it gets. She doesn't hide anything, she is all out there in the open for everyone to see.

I just want to know what you people think about this talented broad.

I'll embed a couple of clips so you can understand what I'm talking about.

i often have a hard time seeing past things like drug problems, and i find myself a little repulsed by her actually. for example, when i was in high school there was a girl that all the guys thought was "hot". i couldn't see it. i tried to see what they saw but she acted like such a moron that it turned me off. there was ONE moment when the girl was giving a report in front of the class, so she had to act like a normal person. in that instant i suddenly went "wow, yeah i guess she is pretty."

maybe if winehouse cleaned up her act i might go "yeah, her music is good."

it's not really apples and apples depending on how you look at it, but maybe i made my point. in short, no i find nothing appealing about her or her music.

that's okay, you are entitled to your opinion.

But throughout modern history, great art comes out of tortured souls. IMO, a tortured soul is a direct result of a rebellious mentallity. Fighting that of which you know is BS and constantly searching for love(truth), but repeatedly falling on your face in doing so.

Winehouse is a true throwback to an era when people used to fight the system and didn't care what the outcome would be. Today, people are too scared to be "themselves", if they even know what that means.

Fear is dominant in today's society and when you see someone that is fearless, the people will try to bring them down into their fearful existence.

To have an Amy Winehouse exist today is a miracle.

Amy has a really nice voice and she is talented I must say.

Many of our most revered musicians have been junkies. Just look at Jimmy Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison. John Lennon wasn't exactly straight edge either.

She is very comparable to Janis isn't she? I never thought of that!

KT Tunstall is an original in a sea of replicants as well.

Conundrum...NO ONE is more bad than Sarah Silverman!

I had not payed any attention to her - I just saw a couple pics of her in tabloids (it seems she just came out of no where). From the little you tube clip I did get to see, I am impressed. I will definitely check out more of her stuff. I am frustrated though that the two clips provided aren't working well on my computer.

Junkie or not, God gives to whomever he wishes.

here are the lyrics....you have to hear the note though

When you walk in the bar,

And you're dressed like a star,

Rockin’ your F me pumps.



And the men notice you,

With your Gucci bag crew,

Can’t tell who he’s lookin’ to.



Cuz you all look the same,

Everyone knows your name,

And that’s your whole claim to fame.



Never miss a night,

Cuz your dream in life,

Is to be a footballers wife.



You don’t like players,

That’s what you say-a,

But you really wouldn’t mind a millionaire.



You don’t like ballers,

They don’t do nothing for ya,

But you’d love a rich man six foot two or taller.



You’re more than a fan,

Lookin’ for a man,

But you end up with one-nights-stands.



He could be your whole life,

If you got past one night,

But that part never goes right.



In the morning you’re vexed,

He’s onto the next,

And you didn’t even get no text.



Don’t be too upset,

If they call you a sket,

Cuz like the news everyday you get pressed.



You don’t like players,

That’s what you say-a,

But you really wouldn’t mind a millionaire.



Or them big ballers,

Don’t do nothing for ya.

But you’d love a rich man six foot two or taller,



You can’t sit down right,

Cuz you jeans are too tight,

And your lucky its ladies night.



With your big empty purse,

Every week it gets worse,

At least your breasts cost more than hers.



So you did Miami,

Cuz you got there for free,

But somehow you missed the plane.



You did too much E,

Met somebody,

And spent the night getting caned.



Without girls like you,

There’d be no fun,

We’d go to the club and not see anyone.



Without girls like you,

There’s no nightlife,

All those men just go home to their wives.



Don’t be mad at me,

Cuz your pushing thirty,

And your old tricks no longer work.



You should have known from the jump,

That you always get dumped,

So dust off your # me pumps.

Here's the clip you are talking about, but it's not indicative of what this chick can really do. F me Pumps was the first sing I ever heard of Amy's, Rehab was second, and it was like listening to two different people.

Here, watch them both and notice the huge contrast. Also, the sound on her first album Frank is much more different then Back to Black.

I'll also throw in Love is a Losing Game, great song.

Yeah man she has some pipes.

And her music rocks.

Better to burn out than to fade away.

My favorite song by her is "You Know I'm No Good". I love the lyrics in that song.

And I want to know how she gets her hair like that!

I don't know, she doesn't seem jewy to me.

Her dad is an Israeli and mom an American. She has lived in the states from a very young age and it doesn't seem like she grew up in a jewish environment.

What seems "Jewy" to you?

I'm not sure. I mean, come on, you've never ran into a women, started talking to her and thought "this chick is Jewish"?

It just seems to me that she wasn't brought up in a Jewish household, that's all.
