Amy Winehouse’s “Back to Black” gets covered

"Back To Black"

It's been almost two years since Amy Winehouse's death, which I guess means the statue of limitations on looking back and covering her songs has finally been lifted. Just a few days after plans for Amy's documentary were announced, here's the cover of "Back to Black" that Beyoncé and André 3000 did for The Great Gatsby (opening May 10th). Apparently, not everyone is up on it, but let's be honest: "Back to Black" was an amazing song, and no one MORE

So far, the highest bidder is the center for disease control. Spinner reports: According to the Independent, the auction takes place this Friday at the Cob Gallery with private diaries, guitars, military jackets and other items included.

Thoughts on Amy Winehouse’s ‘Hidden Treasures’

Amy Winehouse

The other night on Twitter I tweeted about not being impressed with Amy Winehouse's new posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, but of course being a huge fan of Amy's, it's great to hear previously unreleased material even if it isn't quite up to snuff. I have mixed feelings on the release, on one hand some proceeds are benefiting her foundation yet if Amy was alive today, would she have put this out? Probably not. It's still really hard MORE

BREAKING: Amy Winehouse died from alcohol poisoning

Amy Winehouse

After Amy Winehouse suddenly mysteriously died back on July 23rd, Amy's family was adamant that she wasn't drinking or doing drugs at the time and that she actually died of sobriety somehow, and we all just sort of nervously said nothing because ... well, you try being the dick who has to remind Amy's family that she made a song called Rehab. Anyway, turns out the sobriety theory was actually the total opposite of what actually killed Amy, MORE

Amy Winehouse detoxed herself to death?

Anderson Cooper and Amy Winehouse's family

Despite the fact that it's been something like two months since Amy Winehouse's untimely death, no one is still really sure as to the cause of her unfortunate demise, although part of me is just going to assume it was some combination of drugs and alcohol. Anyway, Amy's father Mitch Winehouse is more or less validating my theory, because he told Anderson Cooper on his new daytime talk show that Amy actually died from a seizure she suffered from MORE

People are robbing Amy Winehouse’s flat!

Amy Winehouse

Because apparently, there are a few people in London who think that "standing up to an apathetic government in order to affect change to support neglected neighborhoods" and "BREAK THINGS AND STEAL SHIT WEEEEEEEE" are interchangeable concepts, it really shouldn't come as a shock that fans have already started stealing shit from Amy Winehouse's house. Amy's father is reportedly furious -- claiming someone entered the home and swiped unreleased MORE

Amy Winehouse: Rest In Peace

Amy Winehouse - NME Magazine

I still can't seem to get my beloved Amy Winehouse out of my head, I'm still very upset about her sudden death this past weekend, at the age of 27. Her funeral took place in London earlier today, then she was cremated, her physical being has left this world forever, but Amy's spirit and incredible talent remains.

Amy Winehouse’s unfinished album up for release?

Amy Winehouse

So as I write this, Amy Winehouse has just been laid to rest, and I'm not going to breathlessly cover the funeral because those are meant to be private moments meant for grieving between close friends and family, not as tabloid fodder. What I will discuss is how Amy's label is currently planning on releasing the unfinished album Amy was working on before she died because that totally seems like the respectable thing to do. Winehouse had spent MORE

A quick word on Amy Winehouse …

Amy Winehouse

The worst thing you can do for a person is pretend that they’re fine when they’re not. Pretending that there isn’t a problem when there is won’t magically fix anything anymore than pretending your house is not on fire while your kitchen is ablaze won’t save your curtains from bursting into flames. Let me make one thing clear: everyone here at PopBytes, including myself, adored Amy Winehouse. We really did. I still remember buying MORE

Amy Winehouse: In Memory Of Her Music

Amy Winehouse

I'm still quite torn up about the passing of Amy Winehouse yesterday. All of her demons, addictions and messy drama aside, the main thing that turned me onto Amy was first and foremost her music. That is why I ended up with over seventy posts about her, of course we chronicled her crazy times but the one thing I always swore by was her incredible voice and retro style, instantly I made an emotional connection to Amy's music that will last me a MORE
