Heart this x10000000

Bruno Mars performed Amy Winehouse's Valerie, in tribute to the late singer, at the 2011 MTV VMAs.

It was lively, but still very touching.

Amy would have been proud.

Poetry Man Singer Phoebe Snow Has Passed Away.

Filed under: Music MinuteR.I.P.Sad Sad

This is truly just awful, and so, so sad.

Singer Phoebe Snow, who is probably most famous for her hit 1974 single Poetry Man, died this morning in Edison, NJ at the age of 60 due to complications from a brain hemorrhage she suffered in January.

After her initial success, she gave birth to a girl, Valerie, who was born with brain damage in 1975, and Snow let her career take a back seat as she acted as her daughter's primary caregiver until she passed in 2007.

She said in 2008:

"Occasionally I put an album out, but I didn't like to tour and they didn't get a lot of label support. But you know what? It didn't really matter because I got to stay home more with Valerie and that time was precious."

Hopefully she and her daughter are somewhere, together again in some form, and at peace.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with her family, friends, and loved ones.

Amy Winehouse Claims Her Album Will Be Done "In Six Months!"

Filed under: Music MinuteAmy WinehouseHot Mess

Ah! It speaks!

We've all been seeing a lot of Amy Winehouse lately - mostly stumbling around half-coherent and doing the term 'hot mess' proud - but the trainwreck/singer recently peeled herself off of a sidewalk in Camden to protest Mark Ronson's recent claims that her much-anticipated third album wouldn't be out for a while!

The Wino slurred:

"The album will be six months at the most. It's going to be very much the same as my second album, where there's a lot of jukebox stuff… I just can't wait to have some new songs [to perform] on stage."

She also went on to lie about explain why her last live performance of the tune Valerie sucked so hard!

"Mark and I recorded two versions of Valerie. We released the one that came out like the Supremes but I play the other version with my band. When I got there I completely forgot it was his version we were singing so I was probably a bit out of sync."

We think that's a perfectly reasonable explanation!

That or, you know, the two bottles of tequila you inhaled prior to the performance!

Either/or, really!

What do U think?? Do U believe The Wino will be done with her new album in six months??
