Natalie Cole is hating on my girl Amy Winehouse. She doesn’t think Amy earned her Grammys because she’s a crack ‘ho. According to Ms. Cole, Amy hasn’t earned them and they shouldn’t be rewarding bad behavior.
I have a news flash for Natalie. There’s no Grammy category for Most Upstanding Citizen or Most Warm Mild Consumed At Bedtime. Grammys are awarded (Milli Vanilli notwithstanding) for artistic excellence. Amy Winehouse might be a co-dependant druggie and she’ll probably be dead soon, but she’s a brilliant musician. And here’s another news flash. Lots of great musicians do drugs. Janis Joplin, anyone? Billie Holiday? People still listen to them after all these years. Besides, everyone knows that once artists get sober they immediately start to suck. It’s called Aerosmith Syndrome.
You know who else got high and won a Grammy? Natalie Cole. Yep. Sorry, but she kinda reminds me of women who have twelve abortions and suddenly decide they’re pro-life. They do whatever they want but don’t want anyone else to do the same thing. Whatever.
So Natalie? Don’t hate. Appreciate. Congratulate. Amy Winehouse is a great singer and songwriter. She’s so great that I thought she was black before I got a good look at her. There are lots of loser celebrities that should crawl into a hole and die, but she isn’t one of them. If you don’t believe me just watch this:
