I just saw the Amy Winehouse movie “Amy” on #AmazonPrime. So much talent, such an amazing voice.
If only someone had listened about her bulimia at 16. If only she hadn’t fallen for an addict, if only, if only. And if the press could have given her more space.
Oh what could have been with Mos Def, Amy Winehouse, Questlove and her other collaborator. Like too many geniuses, fame messes with a fragile mind. And I so wish creativity, mental illness and addiction didn’t go together so often.
My blessings to all of those in recovery. And everyone dealing with the dangers of fame and the spotlight.
“Valerie” was the closing song in the credits, this is an acoustic version.
And here is the BBC Sessions show from 2007
