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

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

Amy Winehouse’s ghost is haunting Pete Doherty!

Amy Winehouse and Pete Doherty

In today's "this is your brain on drugs. ALL THE DRUGS." story, Pete Doherty is apparently freaking out because he's convinced that his London flat is being haunted by the ghost of Amy Winehouse. Which means we can probably assume one of two things: first, that Pete is seriously tripping balls right now. And second, that Amy is presumably spending her afterlife looking for a fix. "Fancy a quick little spin, love? *Heroin needle goes straight 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

Ryan Murphy’s Winehouse joke was cut!

Ryan Murphy

For those of you wondering how long it would take before people started retconning Amy Winehouse jokes out of reruns of TV shows? The answer is 'three days'. In a past episode of The Glee Project that ran a couple weeks back, Ryan Murphy made a joke about how one of the contestants should have come out in full Winehouse drag. So of course, the joke has been cut and will never be seen again, unless you know how Google works. “I’m surprised MORE
