Amy Winehouse

I had never really been a big fan of hers. I didn't know her or her music. I didn't think too much of it when she passed away. Today, I listened to her father's book describing her battle against drugs, terrible men, paparazzis and alcohol. She had been clean of drugs since 2008, and almost over her alcoholism. It was such a sad story. Just when things seemed to finally look stable, she was gone. I wasn't sure what to expect from this book but it gave me new insight into the world of addiction and the lonely battle that addicts have to fight. Their many lapses. The people. The good and the bad people. There were many anecdotes that demonstrated her altruistic nature despite her eccentricities. She once rented horses 24/7 so that local kids could ride them for free. She was truly generous. I have to admit I had never thought that about her. I have to admit that I probably believed (or didn't really question) whatever I saw in the news but it's disgusting to learn how people made money from making up cruel sensational stories about her. Let's give Lindsay Lo a break shall we?
