Amy Winehouse - A Shayna Maidel

Poor Amy! I saw a video recently where she looked pretty fucked up on stage and the audience was giving her hell. She seemed like a kid at a birthday party gone bad. The center of attention, but not sure she wanted to be. Were the guests there because they liked her or because their mothers had made them come? And was she going to start crying in front of them? Or shouting, "Go home, everybody, just go home!" I wanted to think she was going to open her gifts and start laughing, but it didn't look good by the end of the video and the guy on stage beside her looked like he just wanted to get his paycheck and split. Sad. Hopefully, they'll let her have her grave and leave her in peace. The tattoos were only skin deep, after all. Inside, she was a shayna maidel, Cleopatra eyeliner or not.
