Man, you guys are worse gossips then girls. And you wonder why women develop eating disorders, pill addictions, get plastic surgery, etc. It's all for the love of a well a semi decent man. Geeze.
As far as Amy goes, I have one of her albums, like the music, how much is her I don't know, but it sounds good and I like it, but I also like Sheryl Crow and Carrie Underwood so whatever.
She, however, like most musicians and celebrities is a train wreck with an inate inability to see beyond herself. She's not any stupider or smarter then people like Michael Vick who have talent, but blow it all engaging in risky behavior. And as far as more likely comparisons, Keith Richards actually does work in this scenario, aside from the fact that she is starting to resemble him, dude did more drugs and slept around almost as much as Mick Jagger (yet these guys are revered for this stuff and she is a skanky talentless ho?) Now Britney Spears, she's a talentless skany ho, who also inflicted Keven Federline on the world and worse yet bred with the man. At least Amy hasn't damanged children. And I still think she has a good voice, but she seems determined to self-destruct. Ya never know though, the Stones and Aerosmith did enough drugs and seem to have survived.
