Amy Winehouse: What Your Reaction to Her Death Means to Me


(Real Quotes from around the web)

  • What a waste of talent!

  • I’m not surprised she’s dead!

  • It’s her own fault!

  • I guess she should of gone to Rehab!

  • Fuck Amy Winehouse!

So many of you have become uncaring, unsympathetic, and desensitized to death, especially celebrity deaths. What if Amy Winehouse were your relative? Would you still feel the same way?

So what she has a song called Rehab where she talks about avoiding getting help with her real life drug addition. Addiction is a disease that millions of people all over the world are suffering from. Some will get clean and some will not. It’s not humorous to make fun of or disrespect anyone that has passed on from a drug overdose.

So what you are an ex addict that was able to beat your demon. Congratulations, you obviously have a wonderful support system and are a much stronger person than Amy and all the other people who have succumb to addiction.

Lastly, Amy Winehouse has family and close friends who are devastated and will miss her dearly. If you don’t give a damn about Amy, at least think of her family.

Note: The cause of her death has not yet been confirmed.

Here’s the music video for her song, You Know I’m No Good. Since she warned us she was trouble, is this also an indication that we should not care?


Everybody Hurts…Sometimes

I used to hate this song when I was younger because I thought it was depressing and sad. It may very well have an air of sadness, but I definitely understand the lyrics now that I’m older and have more life experiences. Everybody Hurts is an anti-suicide song, but I have heard that people have actually committed suicide while listening to it. I’m sure this is another reason why I initially didn’t like the song.

What made me think of this song, you ask? I was watching So You Think You Can Dance and there was a beautiful dance routine to the Tina Arena version of this song. I like her version better but I gotta give respect to the original.
