If I was as awesome as a jazz singer as her and I was asked to sing "Beat It" on a television show, I'd probably get wasted and not care either.
Hit the nail on the head for me.
I love Amy, and though live, she often tends to be really messed up and messy, in general, i cant help but still like her.
i do think she is extremely talented, but i also think that someone who gets such enormous success so young, and with that, a lot of money, can go down the wrong route.
i hope she gets out of drugs, because it would be a shame to see a talent like this disappear.
and personally, i think that the media focus on the drugs, etc, only makes things worse. the spotlight could only make someone in that situation want to further escape into drugs in order to get away.
but i also must admit, some of the videos of her while messed up are priceless.
i highly recommend:
- her appearance on Never Mind the Buzzcocks - so hilarious
but for an amazing clip of her, see her live acoustic version of "Valerie".. so much better than the other version... AND she is clearly all cracked out in the clip.
