When asked to perform the concert in the first place, maybe Amy Winehouse should have said “no no no.” After being holed up for several months in the Caribbean to try to get her act together, Amy was performing at a jazz festival in St Lucia, a concert meant to be a thank-you for the Islanders’ hospitality. But according to News of the World, she boozed it up for six hours beforehand, drank throughout the entire show, forgetting the majority of her lyrics, and exposed her bra and panties as she stumbled around the stage.
Per Hot Momma Gossip:
“One concert goer reported: “well if you can call it singing, she never sang a song all the way through, or kept up with the music, forgot her lyrics, and at one point just stopped and said she was bored! but in the end she just sat down at the front of the stage and seemed to nod off, at which point she was led off, and the band followed pretty quickly.”
News of The World also reported that Amy, in a state of confusion, began shouting at her backing singers for playing songs she’d never heard of, until they reminded her she wrote the tracks herself. Continuing to pound back the booze while singing, Amy stumbled all over the stage and mumbled to herself like a bum, letting down her fans who paid around $50 a ticket to see her, even admitting to the crowd that she was bored. When a rainstorm caused a power-outage, Winehouse was so out of it that she didn’t even notice. She carried on attempting to sing before slumping over on stage. When the lights came back on, Amy tried unsuccessfully to roll a cigarette – then proceeded to chewed the paper and tobacco before spitting it at the crowd. She then she lunged at horrified backup singer with her tongue out. Eventually the trainwreck was booed off the stage in what is being hailed as her worst concert ever, causing Winehouse to burst into tears.
“It’s the first time Amy has sung those songs for a long time. They brought back all her memories of her Blake.” a spokesman for Winehouse said.
What a pathetic excuse. How about being honest and saying that Winehouse is still an alcoholic drug addict, and until she deals with these issues nothing is going to change. I can’t believe she is tossing her career out the window. I officially am throwing in my towel and giving up all hope for her.
