So everyone pretty much knows by now that Amy Winehouse, aged 27 died Saturday afternoon around 4pm in London. The real sad thing is everyone expected it to happen sooner or later which is pathetic for anyone in their 20′s. Now I have my opinions on it, I’m not closed minded, or ignorant, this is just what’s in my mind, I can’t help my feelings on the matter anymore than anyone else can.
So if this particular piece is something some of you may not agree on, *shrugs* get over it.
Having reported health issues as early as three years ago, her own father said she was ill due to chain smoking and taking crack cocaine. What really pisses me off is the sympathy she’s getting, I’ve seen it plastered all over Facebook and various other places, yeah she was a talented musician but aside from that, a horrible human being in my opinion, I don’t expect everyone to agree with me but this is what I’ve always thought about her.
The fact that she constantly took drugs and got away with it makes me sick, people are out there saying what a nice person she was, she was nothing but an over-marketed junkie in my eyes. When you see drug users in the streets smacked out of their eyeballs do you think, “I bet they’re a nice person really”? When they’re mugging you for drug money, do you think it then? Winehouse was no better, she was just a junkie that made a lot of money. Before she even became a star she had substance abuse problems, yet I see people blame it on the music industry.
Tried to stick it out in rehab but eventually just relapsed each time, even prostituted her selfish personal life by writing a song about it, in actual fact she should have been put in prison, you see people go to prison all the time for drugs, the only thing is you wouldn’t have to prove it with Winehouse as she constantly confessed to doing so, her constant rehab trips make it obvious as well. It just seems to me that if your classed as a celebrity you can pretty much do what you want and get away with it. That’s one reason of many why I don’t have sympathy.
I can imagine addiction is a hard thing to overcome, but nothing physically forces you to become addicted in the first place, doesn’t matter if something bad has happened, if you think taking cocaine, ecstasy, heroin, ketamine or alcohol is a good idea to get away from your problems then you must be a complete imbecile to begin with.
I’ve seen people post how no one’s tried to help her, no one knows exactly what’s gone on in her personal life. Well you’ve just contradicted yourself, exactly we don’t know what’s gone on in her personal life, only what those pathetic tabloid magazines/newspapers report, so how do you know if she hasn’t had help or not? It’s easy to place blame, but the blame solely rests on Winehouse for taking drugs in the first place. She knew if she carried on doing what she was doing it would kill her, yet she did it anyway.
While real news is happening at the moment, psychopaths shooting up a summer camp killing around 90 people, we have to constantly be told about Winehouse and at least every 6 months or so on the news before that it was “Winehouse is back on the drugs” well what a surprise!
She was no great role model to the people that idolized her and she had no right being in a position of being a role model in the first place, whether it was assaulting members of the public, spitting at Pippa Middleton or headbutting photographers, destroying her body with God awful tattoo’s, that beehive she called a head, people should be glad she’s out of the picture because now impressionable teenagers won’t be trying to emulate her. If people should learn one thing from Winehouse it’s don’t follow in her footsteps.
It will come out on the news eventually how she died, as it’s “unexplained” at the moment, but I would wager it’s either drug related or suicide. I won’t be surprised at either and obviously at her age it’s not going to be natural causes.
And while the music industry has lost a huge talent, the human gene pool has been improved just that little bit more, as it’s one more drug user in the ground.
If I feel sympathy for anyone it’s the friends and family of hers that did actually try and help her, but to no avail.
So yeah, rest in peace Amy Jade Winehouse, because thanks to you and your selfishness, your family certainly won’t.
