She ought to get her ass in rehab, I said yeah, yeah, yeah.
So here we have this talented woman, whose music I do dig some, (she has a very tight band, even if her voice is not the best in the world) and what does she do? Piss it all away and become nothing more than a crackhead. Robin Williams has said numerous times in the past that cocaine is God's way of telling you you're making too much money.
Now it seems as if her lungs have started showing the beginning signs of some sort of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) condition. There is a debate as to whether or not it is emphysema, but smoking crack aside, she also smokes cigarettes like a chimney. Either way, unless she stops now, the only thing she will be facing next is either a lung transplant, or permanently tied to an oxygen tank.
If absolute power corrupts absolutely, what does absolute egoism do? I don't begrudge anyone making it as a singer, actor, etc. To be able to make a good living at an artistic endeavor is something that only a very few get to achieve, especially at the worldwide level that Amy Winehouse has been able to achieve. She is throwing it all into the shitter though, and at the end of the day, is no better than any of the crack addicts that I would pick up day in and day out in Brooklyn. She just has easier access to it.
The only person that can help her is herself. Maybe she hasn't hit bottom yet, but I suspect she doesn't have that much farther to fall.
