Amy Winehouse's Father Mitch Interested In Making Own Documentary


Amy Winehouse Mitch Winehouse

Mitch Winehouse has maintained his opposition to the upcoming documentary film about his daughter Amy, saying that he would be interested in setting the record straight and working on a project of his own in the future.

Amy, directed by Asif Kapadia and due to be released on July 3rd in the UK and the rest of the world on July 10th, has won critical praise but drawn many objections from the late singer’s family, the most vocal of whom has been her father.

Amy Trailer


Monumentally loved by all who met her, Amy Winehouse quickly rose to fame with her quirky image and extraordinary vocal style. But this was a woman who fell in love easily, and fell hard. A woman not equipped to deal with the press attention that lay before her. A woman too troubled to say no to anything that would help ease the pain of fame. After releasing a set of internationally acclaimed hits such as 'Rehab' and 'Back To Black', she was discovered dead in her home at the age of just 27, following a typical night of heavy binge drinking back in 2011. There were those who adored her and what she brought to music, but there were also those who would to anything to discredit her for a headline story. And headlines are exactly what they got.

Amy - Teaser Trailer


Amy Winehouse was one of the most loved pop artists of her time, but also one of the most troubled. She produced a range of hits such as 'Rehab', 'You Know I'm No Good' and 'Back To Black' ahead of her untimely death at the age of just 27, when she was discovered in her home after a night of binge drinking in 2011. While music lovers revelled in her talent, others delighted in her troubles and were quick to attack her for her lifestyle as well as her relationships, with disastrous consequences. In a new documentary, her life before worldwide fame is explored; the innocence of her youth, her passion for making music and the blissful ignorance of the fate that fame and fortune would ultimately bring her.

Lana Del Rey Kurt Cobain Frances Bean Cobain Amy Winehouse Kassidy

It's not been a good week for Lana Del Rey. The Ultraviolence artist has separated from Scottish singer Barrie James O'Neill and has been seriously chastised by Frances Bean Cobain owing to Del Rey's comments about her father's death.

Barrie James O'Neill and Lana Del Rey
Barrie James O'Neill and Lana Del Rey have split after nearly three years together.

Del Rey announced her separation from O'Neill in a recent interview with Switzerland's 20 Minuten magazine, published on Monday (23rd June). Responding to a question about the possibility of an engagement, 28-year-old Del Rey said "We are currently not together." She continued to vaguely explain the reasons behind their split which apparently result from O'Neill's unspecified issues. She said "He is a wonderful person. But there are some things which he has to deal with. I will not explain in detail. This was hard on our relationship, I no longer felt free."

Jack White, the former frontman of The White Stripes, has apologised for the seemingly insensitive comments he made in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.

Coldplay's 'Ghost Stories' And The Five Best Breakup Albums Of All Time


Coldplay Abba Adele Bon Iver Alanis Morissette Amy Winehouse

Coldplay’s new album Ghost Stories has been released, to quite a mixed bag of reviews. When just three weeks after the album’s track listing had been announced Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow announced their “conscious uncoupling” we all had a pretty good idea what the tone of the album would be like. With tracks like “Another’s Arms,” “Always in my Head” and “Magic,” it became pretty self-explanatory that "Ghost Stories" was going to be a breakup album.

Perhaps he was inspired to call the album “Ghost Stories” as some of these breakup albums have been the some of the most hauntingly heartbreaking albums ever released.

Sigmund’s Freud's Ashes The Target Of Bizzare Robbery - Or Was It The Urn?


Amy Winehouse

Sigmund Freud’s ashes were the bizarre target of an attempted robbery on New Year’s Day. The fact that the ashes are – or were – kept in an ornate, ancient Greek urn might have something to do with the motive behind the crime. Staff at the crematorium in Golders Green, London, were shocked to discover the urn, which dates back to around 300BC, broken into pieces, laying on the floor.

Amy WinehouseAmy Winehouse Also Had Her Funeral At The Golders Green Crematorium 

It had been on public display since Freud was cremated at Golders Green in 1939, after his death aged 83. When his widow died in 1951, aged 90, her ashes were added. The chairman of the Freud Museum, in Maresfield Gardens, Hampstead, speaking as a representative for the Freud family, said news of the damage had brought them “great sadness”.

New UK Museum Exhibit Will Show The Real Amy Winehouse


Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse is being honoured in a special exhibition being held at the Jewish Museum in London, with the deceased singer's legacy being remembered in a showcase that looks to give fans an intimate look in Amy's private life. 'Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait' opened at the UK museum on Tuesday (July 2) and features a detailed history of her family's past and a vast array of Amy's personal belongings.

Charting her roots and leading to the legacy left by her death, the exhibit is more than just a fan's sanctuary, as curators hope it will also be an intriguing visit for those who aren't necessarily fans of the late singer. Museum chief executive Abigail Morris said upon the opening of the exhibit, "It's a story that people don't know about Amy, her family story... You can forget there's a person behind the hype."

Bulimia, Not Drug Abuse, Is To Blame For Amy Winehouse's Death, Says Brother


Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's tragic passing in 2011 is still thought about regularly as her lasting impact on the entertainment industry continues to hold strong to this day. For the first ever time the singer's brother, Alex Winehouse, has opened up on his sister's passing, giving his own opinions on why he thinks the singer passed away.

Amy's struggle with drugs was well-known and plagued her for much of her short adult life, however Alex reckons that despite what people still say, drugs are not to be held responsible for his sister's passing. Instead, Alex think that Amy's less publicised battle, with bulimia, is in fact to blame for her passing at the tender age of 27.

"She suffered from bulimia very badly," he said. "That's not, like, a revelation – you knew just by looking at her. . . She would have died eventually, the way she was going, but what really killed her was the bulimia. . . I think that it left her weaker and more susceptible. Had she not had an eating disorder, she would have been physically stronger."

Camden Council Approves Amy Winehouse Statue


Amy Winehouse

Camden’s local council has approved plans to build a life-size statue of the late singer Amy Winehouse, it’s been revealed. The statue will be designed by Scott Eaton and will see Winehouse with her styled in trademark beehive style and wearing a short dress.

Some conservationists had felt it was too early for a memorial, but according to Sky News the plans have been approved anyway. So you better believe that Amy’s father Mitch has something to say about the whole thing. Here he is: "Amy was in love with Camden, and it is the place her fans from all over the world associate her with. The family have always been keen to have a memorial for her in the place she loved the most, which will provide fans a place to visit and bring extra custom to local businesses.”

The statue will be placed outside the Roundhouse venue, causing Mitch to comment "The Roundhouse seemed an obvious choice of location as Amy had a special relationship with the venue. She played there with Paul Weller when the venue re-opened in October 2006 and her last public performance was on the same stage just days before she passed away in July 2011. We are strong supporters of The Roundhouse and their innovative music programmes which provide access to projects and opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds and we have funded their Roundhouse Radio programme for the next three years.” Finishing, he said "Amy was a wonderful person, she did a lot for Camden and did a lot for kids, she was one of the greatest singers the world has ever known."

Bafta Winning 'Senna' Filmmaker To Helm Amy Winehouse Documentary


Amy Winehouse Ayrton Senna

Asif Kapadia, the British director who won a Bafta for his 2010 documentary film about Ayrton Senna, is helming a new movie about the late singer Amy Winehouse. The multi-million selling Londoner died in 2011 at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning. "Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent," said Asif Kapadia in a joint statement with film producer James Gay-Rees. "She wrote and sung from the heart."

The documentary about Winehouse is thought to be similar to Senna, about the Brazilian Formula 1 racing driver who died at the age of 34. He was killed in a crash while leading the 1994 San Marino Grand Prix. Kapadia and Gay-Reese noted the similarities, in that both stars were still at the top of their games at the time of their deaths. "Everyone fell under her spell," the pair said of Winehouse, "But tragically, Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle."

The new Amy Winehouse film has yet to be given a title - we're guessing Winehouse - but it is likely to be shown at the Cannes Film Festival in May. The movie should be relatively quick to make, given it will mainly include archived footage and interviews with family, friends and industry professionals.

Bafta Winning Director Asif Kapadia To Direct Amy Winehouse Documentary


Amy Winehouse

The British director Asif Kapadia is due to release a documentary film about the late singer Amy Winehouse, BBC News have reported. Using unseen footage of the singer, the movie is expected to be ‘similar’ to Kapadia’s documentary about Ayrton Senna, which earned him a Bafta in 2010.

“Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent," said Asif Kapadia in a joint statement with the film’s producer James Gay-Rees. "She wrote and sung from the heart." They continued: “everyone fell under her spell, But tragically, Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle.” Amy Winehouse died in 2011 from alcohol poisoning, at the age of 27. She had long battled with substance abuse issues and personal issues that had begun to have a negative effect on her career before she passed away. Despite this, she remains an inspiration to many and a statue of Amy Winehouse has been commissioned, to be placed in legendary Camden music venue The Roundhouse.

Kapadia’s movie about Ayrton Senna detailed the life and death of the Forumla 1 racing driver, who dies at the age of 34. He was killed in a crash whilst leading the San Marino Grand Prix in 1994. His death, to this day, is the last fatality in Formula 1 motor racing. The Amy Winehouse documuentary has not yet been named.

Documentary About Amy Winehouses Life And Death Is In The Works


Amy Winehouse

Two years after her death, Amy Winehouse continues to haunt the public consciousness and now, a documentary about Winehouse’s life and career is in the works. The film will feature previously unseen footage of the soul singer, the distributor said yesterday (Wednesday, April 24th).

When a young, troubled celebrity dies, it always attracts attention and feeds the myth around them. This is what happened with Winehouse. She gained international stardom with her debut album Back to Black, released in 2006. She died five years later, in 2011 and her death was attributed to substance abuse.

Now the task of retelling Winehouse’s life will fall on the shoulders of director Briton Asif Kapadia, whose 2010 film “Senna,” about Brazilian auto racer Ayrton Senna, won a BAFTA for best documentary.

A Week In Music, Suede Return With A New Album To Match Their Best, Vampire Weekend Release Unusual Double A Side, Beyonce Causes A Stir With 'Bow Down'


Suede Unknown Mortal Orchestra Cold War Kids Vampire Weekend Noah and the Whale Three Blind Wolves Robin Thicke Beyonce Knowles Amy Winehouse David Bowie

Suede Bloodsport Promo Picture

Albums of Note... Tasked with the tricky mission of releasing an album that stood up to their back catalogue, after several years in the wilderness and a brief spell of time on the reunion circuit, Suede have finally released Bloodsports. Rather than opting for replicating one of their previous albums, they have amalgamated elements of all five of them.
They’ve not lost their distinctive, Bowie-obsessed sound and Suede will forever have one foot in the Britpop era but with Bloodsports they have achieved what few can manage: to come back after a lengthy hiatus, ties unsevered, water under the bridge and still get back to making a quality album and reclaiming their mark on the British landscape.“Bloodsports then, is exactly the album that Suede needed to make. It is loud, aggressive, uncompromising and absolutely, defiantly Suede. Nobody else could have written these songs. Suede have done the almost impossible task of simultaneously looking back at the past while planting a foot firmly into the future.”

Pitched somewhere between The Killers and the Kings of Leon, Cold War Kids have returned with much of the same kind of material that they showcased on their first album. Dear Miss Lonely Hearts is a little bit “Cold War Kids by numbers” and although they’re pretty adept at what they do, if they just stepped out of their comfort zone for a moment, they could surely achieve much greater heights.
The album's sure fire highlight is Jailbirds, a jaunty rocker, with a fat bass line and a noisy breakdown reminiscent of Queens of the Stone Age. This song offers something a little different and breaks the slight monotony of the rest of the album.

Bound For Camden Town: Amy Winehouse Statue Unveiled


Amy Winehouse

Preliminary images of the Amy Winehouse statue, due to be unveiled in Camden in 2014 have been made public as part of the planning application process. The artist Scott Eaton will be creating the life-sized bronze of the late singer, to be erected on the first floor terrace at the Roundhouse in Camden, the London borough where Amy lived. On his website, he explained his reasons for sharing the image: “In my opinion it is a little early to be sharing these images given that there is a lot of sculpting still to do, but the planning application is now public and it is in the news.”

Eaton stressed that the images are merely a work in progress, saying “There is much more work to do on the piece, but for application purposes it is a good representation of the scale and the gesture of the sculpture.” In 2012, Amy’s father Mitch announced that the statue is due to be unveiled alongside a special commemorative concert which will take place at the Roundhouse on September 14, 2014; which would have been Amy’s 31st birthday. “We want to make it like a Live Aid type concert where we get maybe four, five, six hours' worth. People doing a couple of songs each. Obviously that involves a lot of people,” said the singer’s father.

Amy Winehouse will also be honoured in a Walk of Fame due to open in Camden later in 2013. Camden will twin with Hollywood, according to NME, to honour international music figures this summer.

Tony Bennett To Record "Big Swing Album" With Lady Gaga


Tony Bennett Lady GaGa Amy Winehouse

Legendary New York crooner Tony Bennett is to record his next album with Lady GaGa. The somewhat unlikely pair collaborated on 'The Lady Is A Tramp' for Bennett's Grammy-winning 'Duets II' album, and although they're yet to hit the studio, Bennett says he "can't wait" to record his next album with the Born This Way singer. Bennett confirmed the news after receiving a lifetime achievement award from the Amy Winehouse Foundation on Thursday (March 20, 2013), calling the new record "a big swing album."

After developing his singing technique following a stint in the U.S. Army during World War II, Bennett signed with Columbia Records and had his first number one with 'Because Of You' in 1951. Further hits followed including Rags To Riches and Bennett peaked in the late 1950s with albums The Beat of My Heart, Basie Swings and Bennett Sings. The New York rock music era led to his music suffering an extended downturn, though few could deny Bennett's class and the singer staged an eventual comeback in the late 1980s and 1990's, putting out gold selling records and winning a slew of Grammy awards.

"Complete Misery" - Blake Fielder Civil On Jeremy Kyle - He Introduced Amy Winehouse To Heroin


Amy Winehouse Blake Fielder-Civil

Amy Winehouse’s former husband Blake Fielder-Civil has appeared on the daytime TV show hosted by Jeremy Kyle and confessed that he was the person to introduce Amy to heroin, The Sun reports. “I'd taken it about three or four times, we were in a hotel in East London and I think I had about £10 of heroin with me, which is something I used to do after a club,” Blake explained. “I was smoking it on foil and she said, 'Can I try some?' I think I might have put up a weak resistance, the fact is whatever I said she did end up having some.”

Fielder-Civil was in jail when he discovered that Amy had passed away and told Kyle that he and Amy had discussed reuniting, despite the fact that he now had a new girlfriend and a son. “When I got discharged there was text messages on my phone from Amy. I don't know when they were from but there was one talking about being a godmother to Jack, we'd spoken about her visiting me and had an emotional phone call about how we were thinking about maybe getting together.”

In an interview reminiscent of Oprah Winfrey’s recent chat with Whitney Houston’s brother Michael, who admitted that he had been responsible for introducing Whitney to cocaine, Blake admitted that he felt responsible for Amy’s drug use. “I have to be really conscious about what I say because I don't want it to seem that I'm shirking responsibility… of course I regret it… It was the worst part of my life being with somebody that I love, having the opportunity of total happiness but being in complete misery."

BRIT Awards 2013 Nominees Announced: Diverse? Or Just Weird?


Amy Winehouse Emeli Sande Bat For Lashes Paloma Faith Jessie Ware The XX Alt-J Mumford And Sons Muse One Direction Tom Odell AlunaGeorge Michael Buble Laura Mvula Rihanna Cat Power Alicia Keys Lana Del Rey Adele Brit Awards

This year’s Brit Awards nominations look as though they were concocted by a group of strangers, with wildly different cultural backgrounds, on a drunken night out. Is this a sign that the mainstream music world is finally starting to accept that it’s becoming more and more acceptable to have diverse musical tastes? Or are the organisers of the BRITS simply trying to spark controversy? have they lost the plot? Or is this an honest reflection of the mindset of a 2013 British music buying public? Let’s take a look at the evidence, and scrutinise some of the more baffling categories…

British Female Solo Artist Nominees – One of the more sensitive and contentious issues, here, in the British female solo artist category. Of the five nominees, only four of them were alive this year. We understand that Amy Winehouse has a lasting legacy in British pop music. We understand that she was – and, in many ways remains - a tour de force. But, for the sake of the awards, we simply have to ask, at the risk of sounding flippant, what has Amy Winehouse done for British music in the last 12 months? Sadly, nothing. Her posthumous album (released in December 2011, we should add), Lioness: Hidden Treasures was politely and quietly denounced for being little more than cuttings from the studio floor. We simply can’t get our heads around her inclusion on this list. With Bat For Lashes throw in as the ‘alternative’ wild card, to lend a touch of outsider cool to the category, it’s between Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith and Jessie Ware to catch this one, we reckon.
