i'd like you to explain how this ended up in this "queen" thread...stick it in personal

it's not weird at all...i remember reading soemthing on this once...about stars adjustment to fame.

from what i recall it's all to do with the five/six year period...once they are established and are introduced to all the stuff that comes with fame...drink drugs painkillers etc and also combined with their own lack of ability to cope with fame

the co-incidence is that most (and there have been well over 50 film/rock stars) get their breakthru at about 20/21 so the critical five/six year thing hits at about 27

look at the list ...it's massive...and most of the 27-club who did themselves in, got their breakthru at about 20/21

I can't help but think good riddance.  I'm usually quite a sensitive guy, but she was one waste of time and space who had more chances than she deserved - hope Pete Doherty is next!

That's not sensitive at all.  You are just going on what you've read in the shitty newspapers and seen on tabloid news reports

I said *usually* and *but*.   And how can you say I'm only going on what I've read and seen - surely the candid pics and plethora of footage showing her for what she was is a decent enough basis to form an opinion (which I am entitled to, btw).

WHY THE FUCK IS THIS MENTIONED ON A QUEEN FORUM? Really guys? It's not like she was anybody important but just another one of those slutty performers who call themselves musicians and had drug problems. She was barely even contributing to society and was basically already dead anyways with her zombie-like appearances. Yes, my thoughts go out to her family and friends but still like GOATHEAD1985 said, she was a waste of a human being. What we really should be sad about is the 90 people killed in the Norway massacre, the 35 dead in the China train crash, and the death of Paul Watkin, one of the 9/12 lancers in Afghanistan.


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

^^ Already the backlash about Amy!  So much to say have you?  Have you won 5 Grammys for music and an Ivor Novello Award for best contemporary song from the British Academy of Composers and Songwriters?   She may have wasted her life away but there was talent there. I am not familiar with her music at all - but she did have some music acclaim in her short life.


I'll be right behind you, right until the ends of the Earth

FUCK wished I never posted this discussion.

All human life is a waste when cut short or just cut.

The reason I posted this is I wanted pay my respects to her family and friends.

I don't wanna start a bitch fest here but I remember when Micheal Jackson died and it came up a forum, granted MJ has done a lot more in music, but same with him such a waste.

Doesnt matter how old, young or who you are, no one is better than anyone.

Doesnt matter what she done she was someones daughter, loved one and a waste of talent.

I am sorry if this discussion has caused upset to people my aim was just to pay Tributes and Respect.

We only know about Amy for the newspapers and some webs.
Have more memory boys, i don't know if you remember some persian dude called Freddie Mercury, i was so young, but i investigated, and at the time, the newspapers critisized him for his lifestyle, the sex and drug abuse, and the wild and vicious human being he was. The time flows and we learned that he was a very funny and generous man, a good friend and a good son, a cat lover and a very creative musician, but it wasn't notice at all.

For this, and about Amy, we don't know why she was in drugs and her personal situation, people won't be happy only for be a good artist and have money.
Have more respect with Amy, i really only know that she was a very good singer and a young women who died so soon, so R.I.P.

Sorry for my english.

I will say what I have said on many messageboards in the last 24 hours. There a many, many people celebrating the death of a very talented 27 year old female right now. They have absolutely no knowledge or understanding of addiction and/or mental health issues.

This could be your daughter one day.

Hang your head in shame.

Nobody knows for sure yet what the cause of death was but
there are all sorts of reasons for people to take drugs or alcohol.Its still a terrible tragedy for anyone to die at just 27.
Maybe she was an addict but she wasnt a monster,she never killed anyone.She was just an unstable person who needed help.
I recently went thru a bad spell of depression n it felt so bad Id happily have ended my life because of it.If she did end her own life she must of been in a terrible state of mind where that seemed the only option.
Her music may not be totally to my taste but for anyone to die at that age is a tragedy.

From the BBC website:

Sacha Baron Cohen to play Amy Winehouse.

Baron Cohen had been on board for two years
Mitch Winehouse said Ali G and Borat star Sacha Baron Cohen is to play Amy Winehouse in a film about her, the blues singer's father Mitch Winehouse has confirmed to the BBC.

"We have Sacha Baron Cohen, which will probably be a shock to a lot of people, but he's been talking with us for a long time," Winehouse told the HARDtalk show.

Frost/Nixon scribe Peter Morgan is writing the screenplay, he added.

The film, which will focus on the period leading up to her car crash gig in Belgrade last month, will begin shooting next year.

"I think we'll try and keep ourselves out of it as much as we can," Winehouse said.

Baron Cohen had been "on this project since we started talking about it seriously with Peter Morgan a couple of years ago," he added.

Winehouse Snr and long time friend Ex Libertine frontman Peter Doherty will oversee music featured in the film, which will include songs by Winehouse as a solo performer and also some of her famous duets, including her performance with Charlotte Church in 2007.

Graham King, of GK Films, which is co-producing the movie along with Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal's production company Tribeca, said Winehouse was "a music brand all unto itself".

"Amy Winehouse was an awe-inspiring performer so with Sacha in the starring role, coupled with Peter's screenplay and the support of her father, we have the perfect combination to tell the real story behind her success."

Morgan, whose previous works include the Oscar-nominated screenplays for The Queen and Frost/Nixon, is already working on the script for the as-yet-untitled project.

Winehouse's 90-minute appearance at the Belgrade concert in Serbia featured Valerie, Rehab, and Back In Black. It is considered to be one of the worst rock performances.

The HARDtalk interview with Mitch Winehouse will be broadcast on BBC World News on Thursday 28 July and the BBC News Channel on Friday 29 September.
