Amy Winehouse Onscreen Not So Different Than Amy Winehouse Offscreen

Since losing all that weight and gaining all that back-comb, Amy Winehouse has been looking like a cracked-out whore—and now she's playing one on cable TV! Thanks to photographer/film director David LaChappelle, who directed Winehouse's latest video, "These Tears Dry on Their Own" (probably the best single from Back to Black), we get to see what it would be like if Amy were a hooker on Hollywood Boulevard. (Spoiler alert: It's sorta the same as her regular life!) The upswing, though, is that every single extra in the video is sinfully ugly, which comparatively makes Amy look kinda pretty. —Slut Machine

I remember when I heard Back to Black i was astounded by it's eerie sound. It sounded like the ghost of Dinah Washington was coming to me in the night and haunting me with songs she would have made if she had lived today.

I downloaded the songs instead of buying a CD, so for two weeks I was afraid to even look at the cover because I already had this idea in my head that Amy Winehouse was equally, hauntingly beautiful and I'd hate to have that impression shattered.

Her drinking and drug problem fits the music and the whole "ghost/reincarnation of Dinah Washington" thing, but her look is so OFF. It disturbs and disappoints me every time.

I guess what I'm saying here is that just looking at her makes me want to check myself for lice.
