Once again, we approve!

Earlier this week, we learned that Amy Winehouse's parents want to build a rehab center in her memory, and we very happy to hear it.

Now, we're hearing that they're planning on building a charity headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation at Amy's North London house.

Here's what Amy's father Mitch Winehouse had to say about it:

"It could include help for children in trouble, kids suffering health problems, children's hospices and more. We want to make a positive difference."

We think this is wonderful, and we're sure that Amy would absolutely love it.

Definitely make it happen!

    I'm pretty sure Amy would have loved it. She was a very nice person if she wasn't too high/drunk to walk/talk. Rest in peace..



  2. 2

    Not to belittle them in their time of mourning, but where was all this energy and effort when she was alive and something could still be done for her?

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – Good point. I was watching some old interview of Amy today and felt so sad seeing how good and happy she looked before the drugs. It's terrible how no one (including her managment) took complete control of her life and got her back on the right track… Also, does this mean that she actually died from drugs then? So many different stories floating about.

    Amy was right, whatever makes "them " more money out of me, dead or alive.



  5. 5

    seven years from pretty healthy talented woman to dead covered in tatoos.
    This is what drugs do to people its a absolute tragedy to see this young woman die needlessly.

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – you took the words right out of my mouth.

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – If somebody is addicted to drugs and doesn't want help, there is nothing anybody can do for them. Her family and friends could have spent 24 hours a day trying to help her and it wouldn't have done any good. Also, if there is no proof of mental illness, it is extremely difficult to get a guardianship over somebody, even if they are addicted to drugs and destroying their life.
    I am not sure if drugs or alcohol acutely contributed to her cause of death, but I think there is little doubt that they played a role, at least from the chronic usage

    Re: Lilygirl27 – Whether or not she wanted help is irrelevant to the fact that they could have been there for her and they weren't. I never saw any signs of a strained relationship between her and her parents, so why weren't they there for her? Maybe if someone had been by her side something could have been done for her.

    To bad they couldn't help her and intervene when she was alive.

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – Have you ever had a family member addicted to drugs or alcohol? Until they decide they don't want to live that way anymore, they can have all the people standing by their side in the world and it won't matter. All that does is enable their behavior and encourage them to continue what they are doing.
    I have heard reports that she possibly died from alcohol withdrawal, and if that is true I feel so sorry for her and her family. It is so tragic that its possible that the decision to make her life better is ultimately what killed her.

    Re: Lilygirl27 – I don't think you understand what I'm saying. I'm not saying they should have had her committed to rehab against her will. But they should have been by her side and not left her alone, visiting her. Then, when she was dying from alcohol withdrawal or whatever it was, they could've been there to call an ambulance instead of her dying alone. See what I'm saying? And I don't need to have a crack addict brother to know. When someone is sick you don't leave them alone.

    I'm sure the family gave lots of energy to help Amy, when addiction is involved you are powerless. As for this site, no offence but Perez you are a hypocrite. You have been calling Amy a mess for so long and you mentioned that she had a BELLY not so long ago. That was was more than likely fluid in her stomach due to too much alcohol consumption mixed with her eating disorder. I thought the bullying was stopping on here, shame on you. You were a part of the problem she dealt with. I don't know how you sleep at night by what you say about people. I would insult you, but then I would be as bad as you. I have seen what addictions can do to people but I imagine the shit written about her made her feel like awful. Her loss is truly a loss to us all because we will never know what wonderful music we would have been treated to in the future.
