REHAB IS FOR QUITTERS!
Today marks the 6th anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s untimely death. I was a big fan from the get-go. Many people don’t know that she started out as a jazz singer before busting into the pop scene. Here she is in 2004 performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival/The Hague:
Seven years later, after becoming famous (which meant absolutely nothing to her, she just wanted to sing and didn’t gave a damn about fame), she cleaned up her act, finally DID go to rehab, and was looking forward to focusing on her music and leaving her tacky ways behind her. Then, she suddenly died from alcohol poisoning. Or Arkancide. Who knows?
Today I plan to spend my day binge drinking in memory of dear Amy. And also because I’m introducing a new kitten into my home and my existing cat is being an asshole.
