Bye Amy...

by Carmen Cruz

We can't say that we didn't see this coming, it was just a matter of when. Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home Saturday morning. So sad to see such an amazing talent go to waste.

Now, prepare for the bombarding of 'tribute songs' from half ass friends or aquaintances, looking to make a few bucks off someones death. Pretty pathetic huh?

In the midst of all the ingenuine people, looking to gain extra attention or profit from this loss, you will actually find some true, real and honest pain and sadness. Some of these might actually be unexpected. Take this entry from Russell Brand, posted on his website, for example. I appreciate Russell taking the time to jot this down. Rather than profiting from a persons death, how about raising awareness for what killed  him/her? What a concept! Perhaps, it'll catch on one day.
