Designer Jean Paul Gaultier paid homage to Amy Winehouse’s unique style at his Paris runway show earlier this week. Imitation is the highest form of flattery, right?
Wrong, if you’re the late singer’s father, Mitch Winehouse.
“We don’t support the Jean Paul Galtier [sic] collection. It is in poor taste,” the elder Winehouse tweeted, incensed at his daughter’s image being used to sell clothes.
“The family was upset to see those pictures. They were a total shock,” he told The Sun.
“We’re still grieving, and we’ve had a difficult week with the six-month anniversary of Amy’s death.” MitchMore >
Amy Winehouse’s life, while tragic, would make an amazing movie.
The rise to stardom, the drugs, the disaster that is Blake Fielder-Civil, the late night melees and most of all the music … it’d be brilliant if the right woman played her.
Rumors are swirling that Lady Gaga herself covets that very role. And better yet, Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, supposedly gave his stamp of approval on the casting:
“I have heard Lady Gaga is keen to play Amy in a film,” the elder Winehouse is quoted as telling the U.K.’s Mirror. “I don’t know what her English accent is like.”
“It’s not just an EnglishMore >
Amy Winehouse’s official death report, containing both highly personal and confidential information, was mailed to a random stranger instead of her family.
Must have been quite a surprise for the London resident who, as far as anybody can tell, has no connection to the late singer, who died this summer.
At least this stranger seems to have been an honest one: The material was turned in to a London police station. Still … how the heck did that happen?
A spokesman for the Metropolitan police explained the mix-up, saying that the paperwork was simply delivered to the wrong address, per TheMore >
Reg Traviss, boyfriend of the late Amy Winehouse, said in a new interview that before her passing, the pair were talking seriously about getting married.
This is the first we’ve heard of it, but who knows. Maybe they were.
Reg shed light on what their wedding might be like and said that they had not set a date, but both knew they were destined to be together forever …
“You might say we were halfway through a conversation in our life together and then, suddenly, she disappeared,” said Reg Traviss of his late lady love.
“Absolutely we had talked about getting married. It wasn’t planned asMore >
The late Russell Armstrong had a history of domestic violence dating back long before his assault on estranged wife Taylor became public knowledge.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars’ five-year-old daughter Kennedy never saw Russell attack Taylor Armstrong, however, a new report says.
Entertainment Tonight, who aired this Taylor Armstrong abuse photo and spoke with the reality star, made the revelation on its program Wednesday.
ET reported that six weeks before he hanged himself (or was murdered, according to some people), Russell sought to change his will, although he never didMore >
Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch is basically calling out Blake Fielder-Civil for killing his little girl by virtue of laying the groundwork for hard ass drug addiction.
Hey, it’s not a hard sell to even the casual observer.
Mitch Winehouse feels that it was Blake Fielder-Civil who first introduced Ames to the hard drugs, specifically heroin, that ransacked her body for years.
In an interview with Anderson Cooper, Mitch is careful to say that he doesn’t blame Amy’s death on Blake, but reading between the lines, he likely does.
Were it not for Fielder-Civil, who’s currently serving time for aMore >
Amy Winehouse’s final recording turned out to be a collaboration with Tony Bennett on the classic song “Body & Soul” for his upcoming album, Duets II.
“Body & Soul” drops Wednesday with the full album – also featuring Lady Gaga, Aretha Franklin and Carrie Underwood – set for release this Friday.
Bennett recently spoke about recording with the late Amy Winehouse, who he saw as a kindred spirit carrying on an endangered musical legacy …
Amy admitted she was nervous, but still seemed at ease working with one of her idols in Bennett, 85, onMore >
Amy Winehouse died trying to save her own life.
That would be the argument of her father, Mitch Winehouse, who continues to make the case that withdrawal killed Amy, not a major drug overdose that many suspected for obvious reasons. The singer passed away in July at age 27.
Why is Mitch so certain this happened?
“Everything Amy did, she did to excess,” he says on Anderson Cooper’s new show Anderson, debuting tomorrow. “She drank to excess and did detox to excess.”
It is true that no illegal drugs were found in his daughter’s system.
However, Mitch believes his daughter likely suffered anMore >
The late Amy Winehouse was readying to adopt a 10-year-old girl from St. Lucia at the time of her death, the girl and her grandmother told a UK paper.
Dannika Augustine says she met Amy during one of her long visits to the Caribbean island over the past couple of years. Amy often went there for R&R.
She says she was living in poverty with her single mom when Winehouse took an interest in her, and that the two remain close from that point on.

In honor of Amy Winehouse, the folks behind this summer’s Glee concert movie have released a clip from the film.
The 3D flick will hit theaters on August 12, but the sneak peek below features Naya Rivera belting out Winehouse’s “Valerie,” while cast members such as Heather Morris and Harry Shum Jr. dance (incredibly!) all around her.

Amy Winehouse’s past with drugs was well documented, but despite reports that drugs were to blame for her death, her family feels otherwise.
Instead, they believe a sudden abstinence from alcohol might have been what led to her untimely passing last Saturday at age 27, sources say.
Winehouse ignored doctors’ advice to cut back gradually from her heavy drinking and went cold turkey in the past month, Britain’s Sun reports.
Her official cause of death is still inconclusive, but her family believes that this decision simply caused too much of a shock to her fragile system.
“Abstinence gaveMore >
On September 20, Demi Lovato will release a new album, one she recently said will feature an R&B flavor.
Now, thanks to the beauty of Twitter, we have an even clearer idea of what the CD will sound like: Lovato has entered the recording studio with Timbaland, as the rapper/producer wrote following their first session together:
“Yo @ddlovato you killed dat song i gave u. I just pick 2 more for you from one of the producer out my camp @wizz_dumb for u to do 2morrow. (sic)”
Timbaland’s younger brother, Sebastian Mosley, also chimed in: “Demi (@ddlovato) is killing it in the booth singingMore >
Reg Traviss, Amy Winehouse’s heartbroken boyfriend, says of his grief over the singer’s sudden death: “I can’t describe what I am going through.”
“I want to thank all those who are mourning the loss of Amy – such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love,” Traviss told the UK’s Sun.
Reg, 35, wept beside fans who paid tribute to the music star outside her North London home, and again today at Amy Winehouse’s funeral.

The soulful singer with the beehive, velvety vocals and turbulent personal life took the music world by storm in 2006 with the acclaimed Back to Black.
Tragically, she was never able to overcome her demons and passed away just five years later at age 27. Police found Amy Winehouse dead Saturday.

Young British singer Adele, whose album 21 is currently enjoying widespread critical and commercial success, has paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse.
Adele, like Amy, attended London’s BRIT performing arts school, says the singer, who was found dead Saturday “paved the way for artists like me.”
While Winehouse single-handedly “got people excited about British music again,” Adele doesn’t think she “ever realised just how brilliant she was.”
Adele’s statement, headlined “AMY FLIES IN PARADISE X,” appears below:
