Amy Winehouse Is Back, Bigger And Not Any Better

Mark Ronson’s new band had their debut at the 100 Club in London last night, and they had a very special guest share the stage with them.

Amy Winehouse Has Another Day Like This

Perpetually troubled singer Amy Winehouse returned to performing on TV over the weekend on the UK show Strictly Come Dancing, where she was a backup singer for her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield’s performance of the Shirelles classic “Mama Said.” Bromfield’s performance sort of gave me the eerie feeling that I’d get when I watched Winehouse sing…

Having Amy Winehouse At Your Wedding Could Be Way More Expensive Than The Cost Of An Open Bar

Do any of you out there watch Bridezillas? I think it’s a telling commentary on the current moment that so many of the crazyperson weddings featured within are pretty low-budget affairs—hell, there was even one woman on the show who catered her own reception as a way of cutting costs.

VV Brown Spearheads Britain’s Post-Winehouse Pop Economy

Much current British pop seems a reaction to Amy Winehouse‘s success, seeking to capture the qualities that made her popular without the self-destructive issues that make her personal popularity unsustainable. Adele, for instance, was a clear ploy to work the retro side of the Winehouse equation without the crazy drug addict stuff, while Lady Gaga’…

For your pre-weekend reading, here’s the lightning-smart Daphne Brooks on Amy Winehouse and how she engages in racial drag (when she’s able to stand up long enough to perform, anyway): “Winehouse has been lauded for essentially throwing Holiday along with Foster Brooks, Louis Armstrong, Wesley…

Taylor Swift May Want To Rethink Her Hierarchy Of Musical Role Models

I don’t know if I’m the only one who’s alarmed by fresh-faced teenage country singer Taylor Swift’s latest semi-incongruous cover, in which she apparently tries to muddy up her image by covering Amy Winehouse’s ode-to-inebriation “Rehab.”…
