This photo is the ultimate in bad taste im my opinion. In fact it repulsed me. These are Amy Winehouse’s bodyguards posing with her cremated remains minutes after she was cremated. To me it looks like a staged photo by one of the magazines who perhaps paid them for this morbid shot.
Precious, beautiful and talented larger than life, and yes addicted and self destructive Amy was reduced to nothing more than a green bag.
If these men were her bodyguards why weren’t they guarding her body from all the drugs she was taking? Why didn’t they rush her to the hospital if she wasn’t feeling well? Why weren’t they around when she needed them? Obviously one checked up on her and found her dead. Why didn’t he check on her all night and stay with her?
If any of these men write a book about Amy or get money from magazies to TV shows it will be a crime in my view.
Then there was Microsoft one of the biggest and well-respected companies in the world who tried to exploit Amy. Because of the public outcry they were forced to apologize for their Twitter tribute to British singer Amy Winehouse that encouraged mourners to purchase Amy’s music from them.
Now there is also a sickening clothing vendor in the UK who is selling Amy Winehouse clothing. Granted she helped design them but it is wrong to start advertising them when the poor woman has been burned in a crematorium a day earlier. Showing photos of Amy wearing the clothes on her sickly anorexic body is also disturbing. What message does it give to young girls who look at Amy’s overly skinny arms?
The reality was that precious Amy was very very sick. If you look at this photo you will see her distended malnourished belly , her visible and extended ribs, gaunt face, and hair loss which are all signs of physical sickness. Why didn’t someone step in and take charge and help this woman get well? They needed to show her this photo of herself to give her a touch of reality.
But Amy was on her own path.She even said how she was her own worst enemy. Her wonderful parents tried to help her repeatedly to no avail. I have no doubt that her marriage to Mr. Fielder Civil was the start of her demise as she looked very good before he came into the picture. No wonder her father Mitch detests him. Did he get a vulnerable Amy hooked on drugs?
Because Amy was so sick and died such an untimely death she does not need to be exploited. Of course more people will want her music in order to remember this great talent. People who never heard of her are now hooked on her gorgeous voice and amazing songs which she wrote by herself. There is nothing wrong with that. But exploiting her in other ways is just plain wrong.
