According to Amy's official page the 'BRITS' have confirmed that this is the first ever posthumous BRIT nomination.
Amy’s Father, Mitch Winehouse said, ““The Winehouse family are delighted with this wonderful nomination for Amy. It proves that her muziki still has an enormous effect on the public now and for the generations to come. We are proud that her legacy will live on forever through her incredible songs and performances and the many, many young people that are being helped through the Amy Winehouse Foundation.”
It's hard to believe (at least for me) that today marks one mwaka since Amy left us.
Seems like it was yesterday when it appeared the announcement of his tragic death in the news, putting a sad and early end to a life filled with career triumphs and personal tragedy.
Amy left behind a musical legacy never to be forgotten with two albums in life (Frank and Back to Black) and a third posthumous realise (Lioness: Hidden Treasures) which debuted at No.1 on the muziki charts in its first week. Many will say it was little, but the truth is that she accomplished what many...
When wewe upendo someone who suffers from the disease of addiction wewe await the phone call. There will be a phone call. The sincere hope is that the call will be from the addict themselves, telling wewe they’ve had enough, that they’re ready to stop, ready to try something new. Of course though, wewe fear the other call, the sad nocturnal chime from a friend au relative telling wewe it’s too late, she’s gone.
Frustratingly it’s not a call wewe can ever make it must be received. It is impossible to intervene.
Well sometime I go out kwa myself And I look across the water And I think of all the things,what you're doing And in my head I pain a picture
Cos since I've come around Well my6 body's maharage, maharagwe a mess And I missed your ginger hair And the way wewe like me dress Won't wewe come on over Stop making a fool out of me Why don't wewe come on over Valerie?
He left no time to regret Kept his dick wet With his same old save bet Me and my head high And my tears dry Get on without my guy wewe went back to what wewe knew So far remove from all that we went through And I tried a trubled track My odds are stracked I'll go back to black
We only alisema good-bye with words I died a hundred times wewe go back to her And I go back to...
Meet wewe downstairs in the bar and hurt Your rolled up sleeves in your skull t-shirt wewe say 'what did wewe do with him today?' And sniffed me out like I was Tanqueray 'Cause you're my fella,my guy Hand me you're stella and fly kwa the time I'm out the door wewe tear me down like Roger Moore
I cheated myself Like I knew I would I told wewe I was trouble wewe know that I'm no good
They tried to make me go to rehab but I say 'no,no,no' Yes I've been black but when I come back you'll know,know,know I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine He's tried to make me go to rehab but I won't go,go,go
I'd rather be at nyumbani with ray I ain't got seventy days 'Cause there's nothing That I can't learn from Mr Hathaway
I didn't get a lot in class But I know it don't come in a chort glass
They tried to make me go to rehab but I alisema no,no,no
In many years past, I was taken aback and astounded at the incredulous decision to give Kim Carnes the juu award for 'Betty Davis Eyes' over the award winning (how ironic) Winelight album featured song, 'Just the Two of Us'. I have never been so mad as that example of poor taste in award giving. So, it seems, do many people share my emotion of yesterday with their criticism of Winehouse's selection today. Things have a way of evening out over the years as I am quite happy for Amy. There is no swali in my mind that she has demonstrated a superb and unique talent as a singer (that...
Amy Winehouse's estranged husband Blake Fielder-Civil has apparently reached the point in his long climb up the 12 steps where he's making a orodha of the people he's harmed. At the juu of that fearless moral inventory: His self-admitted mess of a missus, whom he says he turned into a drug-ravaged disaster zone.
"I dragged Amy into it and without me there is no doubt that she would never have gone down that road. I ruined something beautiful," the currently rehabbing jailbird tearfully but indiscreetly tells Britain's News of the World (listen to audio of the interview here). "Now...
