Amy Winehouse One Year Later In Memory

22 July 2012, 22.43 | Posted in Music, celebrity | 3 comments »

Winehouse&Ronson

Tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of Amy Winehouse’s death at the age of just 27.  This is one of my favorite videos of her and I’ve been watching it all day today. It’s a live performance featuring Mark Ronson, who backs-up performances by Adele, Daniel Merriweather and finally Winehouse singing “Valerie,” at the Brit Awards in 2008.

The tendency if you’re a Winehouse fan is to skip past the first two performances, but watching the whole video gives insight into the special relationship between Winehouse, Ronson and her fans, which is really fascinating to watch.

If you ever want to experience the living embodiment of chemistry, watch how Ronson, the audience and the orchestra all light up when Winehouse marches on stage at 2:55 and see how Ronson and her connect throughout the performance: her seeking musical direction from him at 3:42, him silently encouraging her along as he mouths the lyrics at 3:56, the way he symbolically shields her and keeps her on track with his guitar and of course the blissful ending when it’s clear they’ve pulled off quite the moment.

Winehouse does that very true artist thing where she just sort of goes to this faraway place when she performs and it seems Ronson knew how to make her feel safe and protected so she could zone out all the more, at least that is on stage. The great ones, after all, possess a certain fragility that is best served by some shepherding though it seems in the end they are destined to walk their paths alone. It’s all very bittersweet and beautiful. Wonderful and a blessing that we are able to witness it at all but sad that we never will again.

So the rumors of Adele landing the cover for U.S. Vogue turned out to be true. She looks good, love the boobiliciousness, Vogue did her justice. All hot on the heels of Karl Lagerfeld’s bishy comments about her needing to lose a few pounds.

This was Tweeted by Roozlynn a couple hours ago…something tells me she’s gonna have a few more followers by the end of the day!

MTVKreayshawn 384x540 MTV Video Music Awards: Kreayshawn, Nicki Minaj, Adele, Etc.

The MTV Music Awards last night fashion-wise didn’t do much for me so I only have a few celebs here: Kreayshawn (who is currently working a nude pic scandal), Nicki Minaj, Lady Gaga posing as a cast member of “Jersey Shore,” Amber Rose, Katy Perry, Skylar Grey and Adele. In Adele’s photo, check the nude, talon mani. Though for a young woman of 23 she her outfit was a tad matronly, no? Whatever, you know how some days you feel so cynical and can’t stand a thing about celebrities? In fact the opposite? Well I am having one of those days. Enjoy the glitter and don’t mind me glowering in the corner.
