Yesterday was singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse’s birthday.
She would’ve been 36-years-old, but she died in 2011 from alcohol poisoning. I was a big fan of hers and always felt that she was someone who had trouble dealing with fame and maybe she would’ve been better off if her career didn’t take off as suddenly as it did.
In honor of her birthday, I have six links to online articles about Amy Winehouse and then there’s the MBIP Coming Attractions for next week.
