Why-nhouse?

What is it about Amy Winehouse that makes her some sort of mega celebrity? Why are the same gossip blogs that talk about La Lohan and Brit Brit wagging tongues about her recent wedding? When did this all happen? Stereogum barely got their claws in 'er before People took over reporting on her ventures. Has she even had a big hit in this country? What gives?

YES. Where the fuck did this woman come from? I just checked the hype machine one day and she was *everywhere*.

And she's not even that good! I mean, yes, being a self-destructive drunk makes for good rock & roll theater. But not THAT good.

I know! As far as I can tell, alcohol and tats are her only defining factor. I haven't read a single thing actually talking about her music. WTFrak?

The only thing I can think is that she has a great publicist. Somebody who knows to call up David Gest and say "could you say you want to fuck my client? it'll get you press".

Sounds pretty good to me. If it does have me searching google for "Winehouse Milli Vanilli".

Oh man I really like her sound! She's somehow recreated that cool girl group analog sound. And her voice is so sassy!!!! Give her a shot.
