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]
