The theft of her tomorrows

“Amy [Winehouse] increasingly became defined by her addiction. Our media though is more interested in tragedy than talent, so the ink began to defect from praising her gift to chronicling her downfall. The destructive personal relationships, the blood soaked ballet slippers, the aborted shows, that YouTube madness with the baby mice. In the public perception this ephemeral tittle-tattle replaced her timeless talent. This and her manner in our occasional meetings brought home to me the severity of her condition. Addiction is a serious disease; it will end with jail, mental institutions, or death.”

-Russell Brand

  1. Good choice of song and artist to capture your insightful post.


  2. It’s sad that she was defined by her addiction. Just like her song, she didn’t want to go to rehab. I have to think that maybe if she went one more time it may have worked!


  3. Uneeviblable how well-written and informative this was.
