Although nowadays an advocate of clean living and a teetotaler meself, I can't help but have a soft spot for those messy, tatted up tough girls who 'keeps it real' so to speak. Amy Winehouse is one of the most genuine soul singers I've heard in a long time, with none of the histrionic vocal stylings found in every Mariah Carey wannabe out there in pop music these days. Her offstage antics make Britney look like Laura Ingalls Wilder, but all of that aside, the girl can sing.
Anyone listening to her? Here's her video "Rehab" on Youtube.
