The organisers of a French music concert are threatening legal action after headliner Amy Winehouse pulled out on Friday with just hours to go.

Winehouse failed to travel to the three-day Rock En Seine festival in Paris where the line-up included the Raconteurs, The Streets and Kate Nash.

The 24-year-old singer was said to have been taken ill at her London home.

Rock En Seine said there was “no explanation of the exact reasons for her absence”. Continue Reading…

It serves the organisers right! Why book Amy Winehouse as the headliner??? why book Amy at all???

I don’t understand why concert organisers here and overseas, insist on booking this car crash. WTF????

This wotless woman is a hard core drug abuser, who as far as I am concerned isn’t interested in “getting clean”. She is unreliable, an attention seeker, and when Amy does perform she is clearly off her face on drugs/alcohol.

Still they keep throwing gigs and money at what some might deem as this circus freak show.

Perhaps that’s why they do it. They know that people will pay just to see Amy acting the fool, sounding off key, and looking like she’s just been dragged through cactus.

  1. exactly, why bother, everybody knows Amy Is mash up, I don’t understand when do they stop hiring her to play at gigs, maybe her prices have hit rock bottom, so she is the cheapest entertainer.

  2. but the thing is that she is prob’ truning more ppl onto it than off it, like young ppl think rahhh she’s doing it, why not, and pete doherty doing it, wah Kate moss is doin it,…

    Not the kids that grow up in the hood, they don’t know what happens top dope fiends..

  3. young ppl think rahhh she’s doing it, why not, and pete doherty doing it, wah Kate moss is doin it,…

    I truly hate the idea that young people by default of having lived on the earth a little bit less than the rest of us, that they just copy what anyone over the age of 21 does.

    It’s patronising cos we all know that we never watched an equivalent of Amy Winehouse say, Paula Yates in my era and thought “Yeah, iI’m gonna do some heroin and shag lots of rock stars” so why do we think this of our young. Maybe the feral kids with no parents/uncles and aunts like ourselves could be affected ,but even then their reasons for doing drugs would be about availablitiy and freewill.

    My belief is that it’s old out-of-touch wanna be young industry people who refused to let go of their yuff who desperately want to ‘relate’ and thus, do a fantastic job in completely missing the point whe n deciding who should be a celebrity and shouldn’t be.
