Amy Winehouse At The Grammys

February 10, 2010 — 3 Comments

Amy Winehouse performed at the Grammys via satellite from London last night in her first televised performance since entering into rehab last month.

“Yes I’ve been black but when I come back you’ll know, know, know”. I guess those Amy Winehouse lyrics from her song Rehab still ring true…even if she did end up saying yes to rehab.

I was honestly nervous for Amy Winehouse last night. She ended up doing an excellent job at the Grammys because she is truly a performer at heart.

I was reading an Amy Winehouse article in NME which was an interview with one of her back up singers. In this interview Ade Omotayo was explaining that Amy Winehouse has been much more healthy and happy after coming out of rehab.

In this interview Ade Omotayo went on to explain that while they were in the studio waiting for Amy’s satellite performance there was tons of drinks and champagne going around. According to Ade Omotayo, Amy went upstairs to play pool until it was time for her to go on.

This exact situation goes to show just how difficult it is for someone in the entertainment business to stay on track with their sobriety. Sure, Amy removed herself from the situation of being surrounded by alcohol and that is a very good sign but what if she is not always able to do this.

I know for myself, it took a long time before I felt comfortable being around people who were drinking and what not. To be forced into those situations because of my profession…I don’t know how that would have turned out for me.

If you think someone you know is addicted to drugs like viagra, the internet is the besy way to get help. Take a look at the amazing drug rehab centers offered today!

Congratulations to Amy Winehouse on her performance and also her spectacular Grammy wins.

  1. I did not see the performance, but I was a little disappointed that she has priorities other than and above her recovery. I know many will vehemently disagree, but I see this as a step backwards regardless of the importance or motivation.

    As addicts and alcoholics we can always find something more important than our recovery, and the more it is done the easier it is to do. Job, kids, school are just some of the reasons people say they can’t concentrate on recovery right now, but in the end all these things suffer to a much greater degree for this very reason- recovery didnt come first.

  2. TDA – I do hear what you are saying about putting things above our recovery but I also believe that there our lives need to be made up of more than just our recovery.

    I think that by Amy Winehouse performing for the Grammy’s and being there to accept her awards she was taking steps to improve her future. She was following through with her commitments and she was “getting back on the horse”.

    Like I said, I do agree with you that our recovery needs to be our top priority in life but it’s not our only priority. That’s just my opinion.

  3. If i had not had “job, kids, school” to concentrate and focus on, then i don’t think i would have been able to recover.

    Being a drug addict takes a lot of time. Once people stop, they are often left with a “what do i do now” void in their life. Sitting around focussing only on recovering from the drug abuse and that lifestyle, wouldn’t be healthy for anyone, in my opinion.

    Personally, i prefer to focus on a more positive future and the things that are, and should always have been the most important things in my life, rather than dwell on mistakes of the past.
