Here’s Beyoncé And Andre 3000′s Cover Of Amy Winehouse’s “Black To Black”

beyonce back to black

It’s finally here: the Andre 3000 and Beyoncé cover of Amy Winehouse’s song “Back To Black” for the “Great Gatsby” soundtrack.

I’m going to say something controversial: I don’t like it. It’s creepy. Imma let you finish, Andre 3000, but Beyoncé should have just sang the whole song herself.

But judge for yourself! Listen after the jump… Keep reading »

"Cherry Wine"
  • A new Amy Winehouse song! Well, sort of. Nas has released his rap “Cherry Wine” featuring vocals from Amy and it’ll tug at your heartstrings that this amazing voice is gone. [Vulture]
  • Speaking of voices, “Grease” co-stars Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta are reuniting for a Christmas album that already sounds like it is going to be schmaltzy. Amelia, who loves Christmas music, is super psyched. [Celebrity Cafe]

Amy Winehouse and Adele photo

[Amy Winehouse and I] spent a little time together and talked about [working together]. But, what little time we had, well, it was tense. She was in a bad state, God knows why. I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out. She liked her, but Adele’s success was making Amy feel upset, competitive, restless. Anyway, we lost touch briefly. And before she and I could really start the process of beginning a new album, it was too late. 

–Mark Ronson reveals that Amy Winehouse, with whom he worked on her “Back To Black” album, was feeling really competitive and anxious about the success of another young, talented British female with a big voice: Adele.

Musician Pete Doherty is one of my favorite misunderstood anti-heroes, a true artist and transcendent thinker whose messages are often sadly sacrificed to his drug-addled lifestyle. He said it best in one of his own songs: “I’m so clever, but clever ain’t wise.” His inconsistencies are glaringly apparent, but Pete is openly, unapologetically who he is, and he’s so damn compelling!

His most publicized relationship goes without saying (I’ll just say it anyway, Kate effing Moss!) but he also happened to be a great friend (and predictably terrible influence) of the late Amy Winehouse. Together they created a series of bizarre, likely crack-fueled YouTube videos and I guess they made art together, too, because as part of an auction filled with his belongings, Pete is auctioning off a painting that he claims incorporates Amy’s blood. Yes, the musician says that his work, “a portrait of his band The Libertines,” was created with the help of his young son and the deceased siren. Amy’s mark is on the right side, next to where it says “Ladylike,” which is also the title of the painting. The piece is anticipated to fetch over £80,000 ($104,000 US) when it’s sold later this week in London. Of all the oddities Pete and Amy created together, why, oh, why couldn’t just one of them have been a song? [Hint]

When Amy Winehouse passed away after a long battle with drug and alcohol addiction, there was an understandable fear that the circumstances surrounding her death would overshadow the talent she had in life. But the response from fans and many critics to Lioness: Hidden Treasures, her posthumous album, out today, suggests we have nothing to worry about. Recorded over the course of her career, many of these tracks are remastered versions of old favorites, like “Valerie” and “Tears Dry On Their Own.” But there are also a few new tunes, like a gorgeous cover of “Our Day Will Come” and a collaboration with rapper Nas called “Like Smoke.” While Lionessisn’t the Winehouse album we would have gotten if she was still with us today, the craving that remains for Amy’s music above all else is proof that her true legacy lives on. [$9.99, Amazon]

Eva Mendes Looks Freakishly Like Amy Winehouse On Set Of New Film

We spotted Eva Mendes with red hair on the set of her new movie “Holly Motors” in Paris yesterday. Mendes looked eerily like deceased soul singer Amy Winehouse. Winehouse, 27, died as as an “unintended consequence” of drinking too much alcohol on July 23.

Mendes, 37, sported a similar beehive hairdo and eye make-up like the British singer. In the film, French actor Dennis Lavant plays a man who who travels between different lives, including that of a murderer, beggar, CEO, monstrous creature and father. Mendes plays a character from the past. Check out more photos here!

Twelve previously unheard Amy Winehouse songs will be released on December 5 in an album where a portion of the proceeds will go to a charity set up in the singer’s memory. Amy recorded the 12 songs, which have been tweaked by her longtime collaborators (including Mark Ronson), at various points during her career. The songs will include favorites she performed in concert, like “Valerie” and “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”; “Body & Soul,” which she recorded with Tony Bennett before her death; and a brand new song called “Between The Cheats.” Amy’s dad Mitch Winehouse called the album “incredibly beautiful” and a “fitting tribute.” Aww, now my eyes are watering.

  • Amy Winehouse died from over-consumption of alcohol, according to a coroner’s report released today. Amy’s blood alcohol level was four times the legal limit when she died on July 23, so she clearly was struggling with sobriety. The Winehouse family released a statement which reads: ”It is some relief to finally find out what happened to Amy.  We understand there was alcohol in her system when she passed away, it is likely a build up of alcohol in her system over a number of days. The court heard that Amy was battling hard to conquer her problems with alcohol and it is a source of great pain to us that she could not win in time. She had started drinking again that week after a period of abstinence.” How terribly sad. RIP, Amy. [TMZ]
