The Daily Ovulation: Irreverant Child Covers Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”

 

There’s nothing more endearing than children singing songs they don’t understand. Best Week Ever rounded up videos of kids singing highly inappropriate tunes. My favorite was young Ava belting out her rendition of “Rehab” by Amy Winehouse. Let’s hope Ava doesn’t follow in Amy’s footsteps, but for now, she’s rad. I hope if I ever have a child, he or she is this irreverent. Other favorites included Penelope’s version of “Bad Romance” and two brothers covering NIN’s “Head Like a Hole” during bath time.

Amy Winehouse Releases Her 2nd Fred Perry Collab–And It’s Awesome

Occasionally, there are things that make you reevaluate what you’ve been doing wrong thus far in life, how you somehow have failed where others — with bigger drug problems or rattier hair — have succeeded. Amy Winehouse “designing” for Fred Perry is one of those things. Ms. Winehouse just launched her second collection for the legacy brand and it’s … actually kind of awesome.

Amy Winehouse Is Back — Sort Of


About four years ago, I was lucky enough to see Amy Winehouse perform at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom shortly after the release of her album Back To Black in the U.S. She was amazing. Her singing was top notch, her stage presence was utterly transfixing, and she was wild in a way where you knew if she kept it just reined in enough, she would go on to have a long and illustrious career. Well, we know what’s happened since. Amy is back to performing again, but video from a recent show in Brazil confirms to me that she’s still go a long way to go before she’s back on the right path. Yikes. Keep reading »

What’s On 17-Year-Old Amy Winehouse’s To-Do List?

Seventeen-year-old Amy Winehouse‘s journal entries and song lyrics have been discovered in a pile of dumped school books. Winehouse apparently scribbled verses inside a red notebook for English Literature (she wrote “Amy’s Songs” on the cover). Some of her early lyrics from 2001 found in the notebook include: “I’m digging myself into a hole/These days I’ll just work when once I had so much soul” and the somewhat prophetic “Drain my drink & order more” and “Find someone with whom I can come undone.” She also writes about “crazy sexual tension” with a boy she knows and plans to wear “that little skirt” and “little white heels” just to tease him.

But most interestingly, Amy Winehouse penned a to-do list of stuff she’d like to accomplish once she got a record contract. And no, “become a sloppy mess drug addict and have a crazy relationship with a criminal” is not on there. Keep reading »

What Do You Think Of The New Amy Winehouse, “It’s My Party”?

Amy Winehouse has come out of “hiatus” to spawn a new single, “It’s My Party.” The track was produced by Mark Ronson, and it’s a cover of Lesley Gore’s 1963 track of the same name. So … how does it sound? Well, I’ll let you be the judge. To me, it sounds, and I hate to say this, slurry. Musically, it’s nothing new: Motown redux. Vocally, it’s kind of sad. But I’m no Simon Cowell! Tell us what you think of the latest from Miss Winehouse in the comments. The song will appear on Quincy Jones’ upcoming “tribute” album, Soul Bossa Nostra, which drops November 9. [ONTD] Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse Takes Her Fashion Cues From Old Jewish Black Men

“I dress like it’s still the ’50s … I just dress like … I’m an old Jewish black man.”

Amy Winehouse describes her personal style in Harper’s Bazaar. One question: Would an old Jewish black man wear dirty ballet flats? [NY Post] Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse Hates On Mark Ronson

“Ronson you’re dead to me; one album I write and you take half the credit—make a career out of it? Don’t think so BRUV.”

Amy Winehouse, in a tweet to Mark Ronson (yes, of those Ronsons). Winehouse is miffed that Ronson appeared on a British talk show claiming that he created all the tracks on her stellar debut, Back to Black, an album that he actually co-wrote with Winehouse. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
