She looks like a corpse here, and the third picture in the slideshow is pretty much mortifying
seriously this is going to far now...i'm pretty cold to this sort of thing normally but we are literally just seeing a young woman killing herself..do newspapers have to keep documenting it?
so they probibly think oh shit we should leave her alone now...
I wish her well it's not good what she is going thru.
These ones are even worse
I pity her, I wouldn't be surprised if she doesn't last much longer
All these politically correct Lefties who want to downgrade drugs should take a look at this awful picture of Amy Winehouse to remind themselves just what drugs can do to you. What a silly girl she is. She has thrown all that talent away.

Up the Daily Mail!
you mean legalising, that would be to cut crime rates, not aid people's addictions.
harming yourself and harming others.
I think tom_edwards meant legalising drugs would cut crime associated with the high cost of obtaining drugs, not the actual taking of the drugs themselves.
In fact, ANYTHING is bad in too large doses. Should chocolate cake be banned because so many people are obese ?
Or maybe people should be free to decide what they want to put in their own bodies, rather than the state.
I like how you used a south park reference that is in an episode that's VERY pro-drug legalisation.
there's a difference between having legalised cannabis and legalised alcohol?
Alcohol can do this to a person just as easily as most drugs can. The only reason alcohol is because it has become so ingrained in society.
about how various substances came to be prohibited in our country in the first place? Or about society before these substances were proscribed? Or about the countries where prohibition has been abandoned, and how that's gone?
Well maybe do some research before you come here with your ignorant "Drugs Are Bad" rhetoric. Are you even capable of thinking for yourself?
someone needs to sit her down and make her watch requiem for a dream, half nelson and trainspotting.
drugz ruin lives, films told me.
stating the obviouse that there isother stuff going on in the world though.
I mean this is a thrad about this not everything else...
It doesn't mean we care any less about worl issues.
that person just winds me up they are always moaning and grumpy they well need to grow up heheh
and I have had some beers
just focus less
and you might get it
its not that hard.
suck big time your right
you gota think though its mad what she is putting her self thru and its really mad the amount of shit that gets printed on her.
She is on telly now and is lookin alright to be honest heheh
for her anyway
She looks like such a ghoul in those pictures. Its a shame but will no doubt secure her immortality in the annuls of musical history. I said 'annuls'!
if i stuck a pair of novelty googly eyes on a sanitary-towel bin it would look good, for a sanitary-towel bin
I doubt she makes this association. Somebody in charge of her career probably does though.
The tabloids are baying for her blood, just like they are with Docherty. They'll probably sell a shit load of papers if she does OD and cark it. Reminds me of the Britney Spears south park episode.
just because i posted a link from the Hate Mail, doesn't make me a moron. Fuck you
Because actually, it was the opium addiction and disgrace of a certain actress back in the early twentieth century which led to the prohibition of that drug, and the subsequent proscription of 'drugs' we've had to endure ever since. So really, Amy's predicament is very much news. Don't be such a snob.
such a shame :-(
Someone I once knew told me a story about how,
-He was standing at the bar in the Hawley Arms next or near to Her and got served first. …Apparently she kicked up a fuss.
I heard that story the first time I met the anus, and was subsequently enlightened with it on several occasions.
I very much doubt Miss Winehouse would have taken it on board, but at least he’s got something to tell the grandchildren.
She ain’t Billie Holiday, but …
the fact that her father has now made some lame excuse for a media career out of this car-wreck is disgusting. an agony uncle on a radio show? come on. would you take advice from someone who is publicly letting his daughter descent into a nightmare?
i know parents are often helpless when their child is addicted to drugs, but selling his story every week to the tabloids isn't exactly helping her
Her mother, father, best friend, management, agent, record company or someone.Please. Someone needs to take responsibilty for her. One month at one of those harsh detox places in Thailand with those Buddist Monks who take no shit from anyone would sort her out. What a waste of talent.
It's not unlike the Britney situation. She seems to be on the right track now. Though a headline in one paper read; 'blah blah, she's better now, and her guiding angel was the UNLIKELIEST person; her father'.
Who'd have guessed it. What a star he is! Though the media did have a negative effect on her, it seemed, and that doesn't seem to be the case with Amy Winehouse.
I don't understand her, she always seemed level-headed. I get Pete Doherty; he's weak-minded, a waste of space, but her, I don't get.
Pete has always seemed a lot more smarter than her.
I couldn't bear the legend status she'd receive after death.
I mean I don't really like her music at all, but like so many of you have said, why oh why is NOBODY helping her out?
The hangers on, the gutter press and her cunting dad make me feel sick.
Yeah she probably will die soon, and its sad.
Why her Dad comes out half the time saying she's doing ok.
Although he may have changed his view, didn't he tell Amy years ago she didn't need to go to rehab (obvs where the song came from)..but that was a silly thing to do.
the day after she dies. everyone will be saying similar things to isthisinteresting. she'll get no sympathy from that lot, no doubt they'll also blame that on gordon brown.
i won't mourn for her, but i don't blame her either. we're all addicted to stuff, when i gave up ciggies a few years ago i really needed help to get through that. seems laughable now... what she is going through is unthinkable.
it's all your fault she's like this. someone has to take the blame.
lung cancer as an effect on smoking don't deserve sympathy though.
lung cancer is more or less self inflicted in most cases
my dad's probably gonna die of lung cancer, i will be upset, but i won't feel sympathetic, everyone knows the danger
who started smoking way before it was publicly known to be dangerous? And beyond that, really, where's your humanity?
What, you've never made a mistake? It's just that getting addicted to nicotine is for some people a fatal mistake. That doesn't mean they deserve to die.
Because you know what? It ain't easy. At all.
You're forever a recovering addict. Why do you think so many people fail to permanently give up, even when they know it's killing them? Do you think they're all stupid? All weak? Sorry mate, not true.
perhaps you wouldn't get so worked up.
When something's self-inflicted, i.e. lung cancer as an effect of smoking, then I have no sympathy for those who get lung cancer. Yes, it's sad and wouldn't wish it upon anyone, but when you put a cigarette in your mouth, you know the risks.
The examples you gave are not self-inflicted, out of the context of my point, and therefore, I'm ingnoring them.
I'm not after controversy at all, as if I really could give a damn about being controversial on some website... let's be real here. I'm just giving my opinion.
do you know anyone who's died from lung cancer? question.
Yes, my grandad did. It was his fault he got lung cancer, he even admitted it to us all while visiting him in hospital, constantly telling us all that he did this to himself and how selfish he's been to deprive his new grandson a great-grandfather.
Hope that answers your question.
I cried. A lot too. But I was also angry at him, which I've gotten over with time.
You've called me judgemental, but your also judging on how I reacted to the circumstances surrounding my grandad's death, so you're being hypocritical. But whatever.
Deaths aren't "one-size fits all" situations where everyone cries and deals with the loss in their own time. People react differently because people are different and circumstances are different. Yes, I was deeply upset as any decent person would be, but there were many, many emotions I was feeling at the time, as any decent person would.
Not all diseases are self-inflicted. Don't really need to expand on that point 'cuz it's just a simple fact.
The whole "let's just sit around smugly..." bit takes my previous comments grossly out of context. You can never be smug about stuff like that, of course not.
But there comes a time when someone must accept they are to blame for their circumstances, good or bad. The sooner they do, the sooner they can learn to accept the help of others to better their lives.
Your first point... "humans put themselves in situations whereby these diseases have an increased capacity to develop..."
This doesn't make sense to me because it seems to go against principles of evolution. Why would any species put itself in a situation where it could become diseased, thus potentially killing itself? I'm not a scientist (as you've gathered!) but this just doesn't seem to make sense. And don't forget, cigarettes aren't natural, they're a human creation.
Point two... yeah, it does seems nasty. But I believe in the concept of tough love. Just because someone doesn't deserve sympathy, it absolutely doesn't mean that they don't deserve care, help and attention, if not for maiming themselves, but for potentially hurting others. This is where you are completely correct and agree whole-heartedly with you.
But I believe in responsibility, choices and consequences above everything else. The current credit crunch is a superb example of this... people not taking responsibility for their finances.
Point three... mental health problems are very different from addictions in that people can be born are develop mental illness which is in no part their fault. But, is the mental illness is a product of an addiction then, yes, it's self-inflicted and yes, it's that person's fault. But relating this to my previous point where I do absolutely agree with you, this doesn't mean we should just leave them isolated to suffer because it's there fault, no way. They need help, of course. To this extent i agree with you, I don't understand why you can't see this! But, whatever!
Point 4... The difference between myself and Winehouse is that I have self-control. I CAN stop at the next pint and say enough is enough... this is called being responsible for one's actions! In the very early stages of her addiction, way before it got out of hand, she didn't excercise self-restraint. She became irresponsible and decided not to stop at the next beer, but have another and another. Plus, when she starts lashing out at other people because she can't control herself, that's when it becomes totally unacceptable.
Point 5... Maybe some do, certainly younger people as they're more impressionable and likely to submit to peer pressure etc. In which case, they need help. In these circumstances, young people can't be held wholey responsible for their actions. Do they deserve sympathy? Maybe, but I think advice, help, medical assistance etc would be better in the long run.
I'm done now with this, otherwise we'll be going around in circles forever!
You've certainly made some good, challenging points which I've taken onboard and have made me reconsider many of my initial points, for which I thank you, though I doubt we'll ever see eye-to-eye on this issue! But whatever, thanks for engaging in the discussion. Peace.
he has a point (although I wouldn't exactly call her scum of the earth).
clearly no one in her circle has any success in helping her, so any change will have to come from herself.
how everyone will have seen it coming
they know the risks when they get on a plane.
you know what i mean!
One of the risks of getting on a plane is indeed dying. In fact, It's one of the risks of living.
She looks nice and healthy and the vocal delivery is absolutely effortless.
her off as a smackhead who would be burgling your house is she wasn't rich... does this woman look like a smackhead?
Maybe, like karen carpenter, and slight risk of britney spears, she is being worked to death.
those photographs were taken before her dip into constant drinking and crack, so of course she doesn't look like a smackhead
started the drinking and crack to help her cope with the workload, like she had about four major festival shows in the last two weeks. Any normal person would be bricking it, she just removes herself from the world.
for three hours a day over two weeks.. hardly overkill is it? you don't see people in shitty, mundane 9-5 jobs taking ketamine, coke, or heroin to cope. she's an attention seeking twat, as someone noted earlier.
take the heroin out of that sentence, and that's a stupid statement.
tapping the keys on a keyboard is hardly comparable to appearing on stage in front of 60,000 screaming idiots, surrounded by cameras and media people scrabbling over your preemptive grave
for a girl with her supposed talent, why would she have to worry? if she can't hack being a superstar without having to be constnatly off her face, she shouldn't have persued fame in that industry. there are plenty of other performers and bands out there who manage it.
one of them was my ex-girlfriend. it was only 6 months between the time she first used and the time she OD'd. her stepfather and sister and several friends were all junkies. she was a beautiful person, but it was all around her, she couldn't avoid it no matter how she tried.
i understand they can be lying, theiving cunts, but to anyone who wishes death upon them, you are far worse than they are. grow a soul (if souls exist)
is what this thread is.
Wow. Humans are great, aren't they?
mediamodia, you are a good human. Amongst so many shits.
dead and actually re-animated by record industry types. Cynical bastards.
No advert for drugs is she.
