Mitch Winehouse has expressed his disappointment Beyonce has chosen to cover his late daughter Amy's hit 'Back to Black' rather than donating money in her honour.
The late soul singer's father appeared far from impressed when he discovered Beyonce had teamed up with Andre 3000 on a cover of Amy's classic 'Back to Black' track for Baz Luhrmann's movie 'The Great Gatsby'.
Mitch took to Twitter to voice his scepticism about the project - which came about because Beyonce's husband Jay-Z is executive producing the opulent drama's soundtrack - and to suggest the superstar would be better served donating a hefty sum to the homelessness charity he set up in Amy's name instead.

With at least 22 people dead and 1 million without power in New York, Lindsay Lohan's outburst about Hurricane Sandy seems more ridiculous by the day. You may remember the actress telling followers last week, "WHY is everyone in SUCH a panic about hurricane (i'm calling it Sally)..? Stop projecting negativity! Think positive and pray for peace."
Mayor Michael Bloomberg didn't quite agree with Lindsay, shutting down the subway system in New York shortly before the devastating hurricane ripped through Manhattan and the East Coast, with at least 22 fatalities. Bizarrely, Lohan also began re-tweeting advice and details about the hurricane, including a New York Daily News piece that read, "Over 6,800 flight cancellations so far as a result of #HurricaneSandy. Read the latest details on our site." Though the worst is now over for New Yorkers, Mayor Bloomberg warned citizens today, "We expected an unprecedented storm impact here on New York City and that's what we got. So while the worst of this storm has passed, the conditions are still dangerous. Clearly the challenges our city faces in the coming days are enormous."
Almost 4,000 utility workers, some from California, are expected to arrive in New York this week to help turn on the power. We suggest Lindsay Lohan hires a new publicist ASAP, just somebody, anybody, to stop her saying stupid things.

The Training Day star was selected to deliver an honorary graduation speech at his son Malcolm's University of Pennsylvania last May (11) and Washington confesses he was so daunted by the task, he commissioned the politician's right-hand man for the project to help ease his stress.
He says, "First of all, I'm in South Africa (filming a movie) and I'm putting my ideas together, I'm really working hard, then I realise I'm not really a speechmaker. I didn't know how to put it together. So actually my young agent said, 'Hey, you need a speechwriter.' So I actually got the guy who writes speeches for Mayor Bloomberg.
"What you do is you get on the phone with him and we talk for hours and hours and he gets a sense for what I wanted to talk about. And then he would write something and I would read it, then you would talk some more, and I would come up with something."

Actress and activist Mia Farrow is showing her support for the Occupy Wall Street movement by signing a petition calling on New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg to allow protesters to return to their makeshift base camp.
Demonstrators turned Zuccotti Park in downtown Manhattan into a camp site in September (11) as they campaigned against corporate greed.
Their numbers swelled within two months and riot police were called in to evacuate the privately-owned park in the early hours of 15 November (11) under the instruction of Bloomberg, who claimed the masses had become a danger to public health and safety.
Activists have since been allowed to re-enter the park, which is now barricaded and heavily guarded by cops and security guards, but they have been forbidden to set up tents there.
