Socialite Life BS Awards 2008: No. 5 – Amy Winehouse

December 11th, 2008 // 3 Comments

Considering the year Amy Winehouse had in 2007, it’s hard to believe that she would be able to top herself in ridiculous behavior. However, the substance-abuse-problem-plagued singer simply continued her downward spiral through all of this year, punctuated with some particularly low points.

She first kicked off the year with a video of her smoking crack going public and well, it’s just been getting progressively worse. Her health has been shaky with the 25-year-old a mere puff away from developing emphysema, not to mention the weirdness going on with her skin.

Multiple trips in and out of rehab and the hospital seem to have done little to curb Amy’s appetite for misbehaving. Her husband Blake Fielder-Civil served his time behind bars, got out just long enough to announce that he and Amy were splitting (amidst rumors that he was seeing German model Sophie Schandorff on the side), before heading back into the clink.

Then there was the relationship Amy developed with fellow druggie musician Pete Doherty. Thank God, that appeared to be short-lived. But no relationship of Amy’s has been more volatile than the one she has with her fans.

Multiple attacks on well-meaning albeit ill-advised passersby and/or fans at her shows have resulted in numerous arrests for Amy, and she might even be facing some time behind bars in the near future.

And sadly enough, that might be the best thing for her at the moment.

    Amy, Amy, Amy–you are one of six billion! Your open struggles with the same shit other people have to deal with have given me almost a full year of thoughtfulness re: my own wild-child-lifestyle. Thanks for hanging in there and showing me the Ways in which i’m not “creative” enough to want to tread. Or suicidal enough either.
