Winehouse’s rep is as famous as her album. From Lynn Yaeger’s “Winehouse Rules“:
Last February, when a presenter at the BRIT Awards, England’s version of the Grammys, joked that “Winehouse” is the new name for Amy’s liver, it was further proof that the singer’s louche proclivities are now as famous as her extraordinary talent—she was named best British female singer that night. Now Rod Stewart says he’d like to record an album with her (a mixed blessing) and her name is being bounced around as, believe it or not, the next Bond girl. Whatever the future holds, Winehouse, 23, has already secured a place in the great tradition of women who get high and tear your heart out, from Billie to Judy, Mama Cass to Janis.
