This week’s betch of the week title goes to a legendary and talented betch, who died far before her time. We’re talking about the ultimate, and perhaps too much at times, Bat Shit Crazy Betch, Amy Winehouse.
At 24, she had six Grammy award nominations and five wins, and is the singer of the ultimate in betchy songs, “Rehab”. She has won Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Vocal Album Award. Fuck auto-tune, this isn’t
Countess Count LuAnn’s Chic C’est La Vie bullshit. Amy’s voice was sensational.
Amy Winehouse has been pissing people off since she was 14 and was expelled from school for piercing her nose and ‘not applying herself’. We assume the piercing wasn’t what got her in trouble, but the quick stop she made at #10 candyland before school probably did it.
In true betchy style, this only made Amy give less of a shit about what anyone thought of her. Since then, Amy has been driving the media crazy with her drug and violence allegations and has been perfectly described as "a perfect storm of sex kitten, raw talent and poor impulse control” by Newsweek.
Some of our favorite Amy quotes are as follows:
"It's not important to me to make other people at ease. I am difficult, but that's because I don’t really give a fuck."
"Yeah, I'm an open book. Some men do think I'm a psycho bunny-boiler. But I think that's funny. If you're nice to me I'll never write anything bad about you. There's no point in saying anything but the truth. Because, at the end of the day, I don't have to answer to you, or my ex, or ... I shouldn't say God ... or a man in a suit from the record company. I have to answer to myself."
Finally, like former Betch of the Week Kate Moss, Amy’s crazy style has been an inspiration for an entire fashion movement. Karl Lagerfeld dubbed her the new Brigitte Bardot and made her drugged up/anorexic look a chic new market for the elite. So betchy.
So R.I.P. Amy Winehouse, we’ll always remember you for being a badass betch who didn’t take shit from people and never tried to kid anyone into thinking she wasn’t the music industry’s hottest hot mess.
Oh and stop saying she should have gone to rehab, that joke is as original as Blue Steel.
