Is Winemouse Worse Than 2 Girls, 1 Cup?

May 19th, 2008 // 10 Comments


Amy Winehouse actually did something semi-music-related this weekend, when the above clip–of her plonking away on a guitar and mewling backing vocals while her goddaughter pretty capably sang Alicia Keys’ “If I Ain’t Got You”–was posted to Pete Doherty’s very active YouTube channel. But of course, it was another clip on Doherty’s video blog, titled “winemouse,” that got most of the attention and made me wonder one thing: How low could the Internet go?

For its part, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is not amused by Amy and Pete’s shenanigans.

The RSPCA warned that handling mice at such a young age could mean they are rejected or eaten by their mother.

Becky Hawkes, a spokeswoman for the RSPCA, told Sky: “New born babies should be undisturbed, and with their mother – smell is critical for small rodents.

“It’s because the babies will be contaminated by human smells and the mother could reject or eat them.”

A worker for the National Animal Welfare Trust said: “You don’t disturb any baby creature, whether it’s puppies or kittens or mice – you leave them with the mum.

“And you should definitely scrub your hands – just as you would with a new-born baby.”

Nice for you to assume they knew that.

    Yeah…I stumbled across some Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse getting their Bosom Buddies on and uploading it to You Tube, and I reacted pretty much the same way I do everytime I see a video clip of Miss Winehouse post her marriage to “Blake-Incarcerated”; I just sat there in silence with my jaw to the floor. I don’t even know how to respond to her antics and/or live performances post marriage to “Blake-Incarcerated” anymore. P.S. Pete Doherty and Amy Winehouse? Together? Chilling and living it up? Seriously? WHY ARE THESE TWO BESTIES? WHY LORD? WHY? Also, I’ll believe that these “chilling” videos are being most viewed and most discussed on the interwebs when John Mayer and his cronies mocks them and recreates them for his blog. Finger on the pulse with his ear to the ground, that guy.

    I am more interested in how “If I Ain’t Got You” became something of a standard than anything involving Winehouse’s crusty fingernails. Wasn’t it something of a secondary single from whatever Alicia album it was included on?

    Seriously, how many baby mice do you have to eat to accumulate that much mouse poop under your nails?

    i wish winehouse and doherty’s mothers had had the sense to eat them when they were babies.

    @Maura Johnston: Maybe you mean “secondary” in the sense that it was the second single from its album, but it was a big top 5 hit, and it certainly is the most standard-y “old fashioned”-sounding hit by one of the most standard-y “old fashioned” hitmakers of the decade.

    Gross and creepy. Those nails made me gag. I really think that on a crazy-per-day scale, Wine-O has Britney’s best days beat.

    My favorite part was when Dougherty marveled at the prominence of the mouse’s veins. Real class.

    @Maura Johnston: Yeah, Al’s right – “Ain’t” was the Energizer Bunny of Alicia Keys singles. Never as massive as “Fallin’” or “No One” but hung around the charts forever, and it’s become probably the most reliable “gold” track for buppie-R&B stations in her entire catalog.
