Glastonbury 08 & Amy Winehouse

#1
I watched some of BBC2's coverage of 'Glastonbury 08' this evening. Amy Winehouse was the main attraction at that time. However, I just cannot see what people rave over her singing for. It was dreary, dull and she was slurring her voice. I just could not understand a thing she was wailing about. It certainly did nothing for me, I turned over the channel and watched NCIS.

She also looked a tad unsteady on her feet at times, and her eyes looked glazed over. That might have been from the meds, as she has recently been in hospital. I have a feeling that she will embrace the old 'falling doon water' and the 'white powder' for the old hooter.

She really needs to get herself sorted. She needs to forget about her junkie husband in jail, he has to face his own demons. Forget about her singing career - put it on hold. Get back into a Rehab and get real about her personal problems, else she won't have a career to continue with. Beleive you me, I have seen what addictions can do to people!!

You probably missed her forearm smashing some punter in the mosh pit as well. May have been deserved as I think he threw something (his lunch?) at her.

What a darlin'.

Is it me or does she look doped up in that clip? She doesn´t seem to know what planet she is on.

Lock her in a 10ft by 10 ft room for a month, and then it to some 1 on 1 therapy.

Agreed, funny though Plod nowhere to be seen when an obvious crime of violence has been committed. Weren't so slow with the Jock who got kicked off Big Brother, but that was warm and dry I suppose.

Relinquishing junk. Stage One: preparation. For this you will need: one room which you will not leave; one mattress; tomato soup, ten tins of; mushroom soup, eight tins of, for consumption cold; ice cream, vanilla, one large tub of; Magnesia, Milk of, one bottle; paracetamol; mouth wash; vitamins; mineral water; Lucozade; pornography; one bucket for urine, one for feces, and one for vomitus; one television; and one bottle of Valium, which I have already procured, from my mother, who is, in her own domestic and socially acceptable way, also a drug addict.

Renton swallows several Valium tablets. Voice-over continues.

And now I'm ready. All I need is a final hit to soothe the pain while the Valium takes effect. - Trainspotting

Vvaannmmaann,

what do you mean by " before it all went wrong"

She was born a mutated dog and will die one, albeit missing her septum due to drug abuse....

Hope the crack whore dies a lonely painful death. Her performance was atrocious, total crap singing, if you could understand it through the slurring.

What was the 15minutes of introducing her band for.

She should have been nicked for being under the influence of drugs and the polis should have raided her dressing room.

Let's face it; any FAN of Winohouse DESERVES not just a slap but a rightous shoeing!

What I fail to understand is why 'creatives' apparently have an exemption clause from the normal rules of society. Why was Winehouse booked to perform at a festival attended by impressionable youngsters? Surely the organisers should strike her from the list of acceptable performers until she is clean.

Although having said that, there don't appear to have been any impressionable youngsters there - most of the audience appeared to be people like Andrew Marr - middle aged hacks either clutching freebie tickets so they can plug the festival to the superannuated, middle-class liberals desperate to clutch on to their 'youth' or with tickets paid for from my license fee.

Do you mind confirming that. Andrew Marr at Glastonbury, whatever for?

Andrew Marr's main concern is politics and everybody knows,
'Politics is show business for ugly people.'

Whereas Glastonbury is,
'Show business for show business people who are out of their heads and think they are beautiful.'

Amy Winehouse has (or at least had) a fantastic singing voice. That is about the only thing going for right now as everything else in her life seems buggered. IMO she is just a messed up young woman, everyone (damned near) makes mistakes and AFAI am concerned she is free to go piss her life against the wall.

What irritates me more is that our entire system seems to be promoting her inadequacies. Who made the decision to book her as a performer? Who decides to plaster her pictures everywhere? Why is she not arrested when she blatantly breaks laws?

Celebrity culture pisses me off. Jade Goody is listened to FFS! A woman that is proud of her ignorance and yet she is worth millions. What sort of incentive is this for people to educate and better themselves?

Amy Winehouse
Pete Doherty
Naomi Cambell
Jade Goody
Kate Moss
etc etc etc

Heroes of our time!

I am afraid to say it is true:

You'd do a dog on the street if it gave you the opportunity! :)

Winehouse is one fukced up lady, ugly as sin, old before her time, junked out, worn out and totally knackered. Nice voice, sometimes, lousy personality and a total waste of space. Quicker she leaves this life, the happier I'll be

Shame that Joss Stone seems to be wandering down that same old path into obscurity. Once a fit bird with a great voice, but not content to just sound like Janis Joplin, she appears to be set for the same endgame and mixing it with an unwholesome crowd

And as much as I admire his Joseph-like role in the delivery of the Saviour of London, the fact that Boris Johnson's dad is at 'Glasto' rather hammers the final nail in the coffin of this particular festival. Although I may be wrong, perhaps they are all huge fans of 'The Arctic Monkeys' as our alleged 'Prime Minister' apparently is...
