so you all know winehouse has passed away....another young artist who died prematurely from the so called killer "drugs"....hmmm.... what i want to
discuss now is the possibilty that she was killed off by her "RECORD LABEL".
before you start disagreeing...let me explain what is evident.
an artist is expected to gross about 20 million dollars (this is just a random number)....the label has already forecasted a figure they expect to get
back from their "investment"......now.....the artist goes on tour to plug the new album (that she worked on for about 2years)....the artist while on
tour starts to effect her sales and her brand by behaving like a moron and getting boo`d by her fans.....the sales figure expected falls
drastcally...ie from 20 million down to 5 million.....now..... if the label was to "engineer" her death....her sales figure increases to 500
i think that record labels should not automatically own artists rights after their death....two main artists are bob marley and micheal jackson...we
all saw how much the label made after they died.....could this be the motive for her death...i dont buy the drugs line after they used it on O.D.B.
from wu tang....
something to think about...peace
here is a clip of her last stage appearance...where she is being boo`d...and her record label cancelled the rest of her comeback tour....

It was a conspiracy involving Jack Daniels, Johnnie Walker and Jim Beam.
All joking aside - any deaths a shame, but when it's somebody young and so self destructive, it seems to be even more tragic. Probably because the
victim's also the perpertrator. Not that I know how she died.
Amy Winehouse was a drug-drink addict who was clearly not taken proper care of by her "friends" and "management". I saw the video of her
"performance" in Belgium and her band all had smiles on their faces and were laughing as she staggered about incoherently. When I saw that I said,
"She ain't gonna make it". Enablers all of them for a very sick woman. Tragic.
Sure they would see a surge in sales, but you have to realize she only had two albums out. There isn't anything there to make a ton of cash on.
They will lose sales on her albums pretty quickly. It would have been in their best interest for her to live and go on making albums. She was young
enough and popular enough (although I never cared for her) to have been a major revenue source for many, many years.
She was another wasted talent who liked her booze and drugs. She liked them so much she made a hit song that told how she refused rehab.
I agree with you. The only reason I ever knew who she was is due to the media going on and on about her drug addiction. I'm honestly not sure what
shecontributed to the music industry. What I found really sad was that people I know offline knew more about her being dead than about anything that
happened in Norway.
