>Tears Dry On Their Own


She could have had it all. The money, the success, the rehab and a life. But she said no no no. 
Amy Winehouse was one of those talented stars on the horizon of a dead and a nowadays more than fake pop industry. And that’s why so many people react completely shocked to those news although her whole lifestyle lead to an expectation that must end in a tragedy. Her voice became her reason for success … and her doom. I’ve been writing about suicide (and how I think that such a choice to end ones life that way pretty much sucks) a while ago. Surely, there are so many other more tragic things happening in this world right now.
There are thousand of reasons not to be shocked and sad about someone who chose to die because of all the trouble that life brings with it when you are public person. 
Nevertheless I say that it’s human to react towards that Winehouse drama no matter in what way. Somehow everybody thinks that he/she knew that person behind songs like Rehab, You Sent Me Flying and Fuck Me Pumps.
To me, she appeared to be an icon. Probably someone I never want to swap lives with but someone who was gifted with talent. Karl said so, too. So did good old Mick.
She didn’t make it through the pressure of her business, she couldn’t cope with herself but what she has left is a gift to all of her fans: Her recorded voice telling stories about a life. A life that she didn’t want to live any longer.
