#NowPlaying – Amy Winehouse “You Know I’m No Good” RIP 9/14/83 – 7/23/11

by THE INFAMOUS JCITY™

On July 23, 2011 Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment. No specific cause of death was giving, so everyone claiming that she died from a drug overdose can just shut the fuck up with that bullshit until her autopsy report comes out. I’m sure drugs deteriorated her body to the point where she looked like she was malnourished and fragile, but until people know the specifics then they really shouldn’t speak on it. While most of society will remember Amy for her problems with illicit narcotics, I will always remember her as a raw soulful talent that never quite reached her full potential. She lived her life by her rules and while others sat around and judged her for it, I found that to be quite an admirable trait. Amy joins other talented musicians that died at the age of 27, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Freaky Tah and one of my all time favorite musicians, Kurt Cobain.

“You Know I’m No Good” was the first single released from Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” album, which is an emotional soulful album that went on to win 5 Grammy Awards. I swear that I can feel some of her pain on this album and to me that is the mark of a true exceptional artist. It’s also the first time I have ever seen Amy and she caught my attention fairly quickly seeing as I love me some hot chicks with tats.

After the jump are a few unedited thoughts on Amy Winehouse’s death as tweeted by a few celebrities. May you rest in peace Amy, you were an inspiration to those who live their lives the way they see fit despite what anyone else may think or say about it.

    I didn’t like her music and I do think her death was drug releated but may she rest in peace.

      Nothing has surfaced about drugs at the scene of her death, but I’m sure it deteriorated her heart to that of a 60 year old so I wouldn’t be surprised if she died from cardiac arrest after years and years of substance abuse. I never knew her personally so I can give a fuck less. I knew her music and that Back To Black album was a good showing.

    This would be better if it was in interview form and by me.

        The world is a fucked up place and if my comment sounded rude sorry lol no disrespect of course it is sad she died too of course it just got to me all day at work its what everyone talked about and no one knew about norway i was just like wow

        • July 24, 2011 at 7:33 pm

          I just read a bunch about this. This is rediculous. How could no one get there faster? Why would they organize to have a bunch of kids on a island and now have anyone near by in case of an emergency? This is too messed up.

            True. It’s just fucked up.

            • July 25, 2011 at 1:05 am

              They weren’t ready for such an event to go down. The country is usually a quite peaceful one so they never thought a psychopath would do such a thing. Plus they were on an island. It takes time to get to a remote area like that. The guy obviously had this planned out to perfection. The retard had plenty of time to get away too so they are lucky they even caught him.

    Props to you, J. Somebody should post a Three Dog Night song called “Easy to be Hard”. Sometimes, I think truer words have never been spoken. And I’m glad you didn’t follow in trashing her. RIP
