In Memoriam: Amy Winehouse
Very Saddened about Amy's passing. It feels as terrible as when Aaliyah died in the plane crash.
Yes, because of her behavior and drug abuse, we knew that more than likely she wasn't gonna make it, but damn it I held out a bit of hope that she ultimately would come out at the other side of all the darkness around her.
Yes, she was a very troubled young woman, but it doesn't take away from the fact that she was such a raw talent, the likes we seldom get to experience. Making fun of her dead is easy, cheap, and shameful.
At least, her demons can no longer haunt her, she's finally free at last. My heart goes out to her family.
All I can think of now is her exquisite, heartwrenching, and arguably best music video for what I considered her very best song: Back to Black.
