Amy Winehouse's dad urges fans to boycott her music until she kicks the drugs

Whatever happened to sex drugs and rock and roll?

Now I'll be the first to admit that I am not in the least bit familiar with Miss Winehouse and her music but all these modern musicians, it seems to me, can't do drugs worth shit. They cancel gigs, go to rehab and are generally pussies about the whole thing :)

I personally think no-one is going to listen to him. Thoughts?

    I thought it was her in-laws?

    Well, I certainly won't be buying tickets to any of her gigs if she is just either gonna get pissed /drugged up on stage or not even turn up!

    I'll boycott her music because her voice goes right through me like a dodgy paella, not because she's on drugs.

    I still get the feeling it's an attention thing with her anyway.

    Yeah sorry, I should learn to read things properly.

    Just seems to me that artists these days can't take their narcotics. Having read books on Motley Crue and all the other old rockers, it just seems like they're a bunch of little girls these days.

    Anyway, everyone knows that all the best music was made under the influence of drugs :D

    It was her Dad. Her in-laws also called in.

    No I wouldn't boycott anyone's music because they are descending into a drug hell. What else do you think drives her on...?

    Well they tried to make her go to rehab, but she said no, no, no.

    :lol:

    I think half of all this that comes out is a major PR stunt.

    I heard she wants a baby so she's going to get clean and put on weight.

    I believe her in-laws spoke out first on an interview on radio, then her dad responded.

    aww no match for Miss. Courtney

    I really like Amy Winehouse I wish she would clean herself up and not waste her talent.

    Pfft, they all pale into insignificance when compared with the mighty Crue.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Her music is alright, but she looks like a man in drag (even before the drugs) now she just looks awful.

    I dont think she is estabilished enough to go down to im to cool to worry about my image route just yet. Think her and her hubby are trying to do a Kate Moss & Pete Doherty.

    I wish she would just fuck off to rehab though, cos im sick of seeing her in the press.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I :heart: amy winehouse and I think most great musicians were off their tits most of the time anyway.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    people should just boycott her music on accounts of taste.

    the ironic thing is the press she's getting is more likely to spike and generate more sales. as if record labels would stoop to such ridiculous pr stunt levels!!

    Courtney > Motley Crue

    she looks like a horse and writes the most offensely shit lyrics, I would dearly love to slap her. Do love her voice though. Oh, the dichotomy!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,328 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Universal Records must be wondering what to make of all this publicity...

    Hahahahahahaha!

    You keep dreaming love.

    Crue = 50 million records
    Courtney? probably not very many at all.

    Crue = many more drugs than everyone bar Keith Richards. Read The Dirt.

    Personally, I think she's fucking wicked.
    Great voice, and her lyrics are clever and witful - probably one of the greatest talents out there. It would be a shame to even compare her talent (especially considering she wrote her debut album at the age of 19) to what the rest of the industry does at her age.

    That said, I don't think it's healthy for anyone to get that hung up on their drug use and wish her a bit of peace of mind.
