Amy is Dead

They tried to make me go to rehab but I said ‘no, no, no’
Yes I’ve been black but when I come back you’ll know know know
I ain’t got the time and if my daddy thinks I’m fine
He’s tried to make me go to rehab but I won’t go go go……  

Kad su prekinuli program na B92 da bi saopštili udarnu vest i krenuli da spominju njeno ime, odmah je postalo  jasno o čemu se radi. Amy je nađena mrtva u svom stanu na Kemdenu. Neke stvari su u životu nažalost veoma predvidljive. Neki od mojih prijatelja su i pomislili da će joj ovaj fijasko od koncerta koji je održala, tj. probala da održi u Beogradu biti poslednji. Na taj koncert koji je promocija njenog novog albuma (za koji se već priča da je počeo da se prodaje u enormnim količinama zajedno sa starim albumima, kojima je posle njene smrti naglo skočila prodaja ) i koji je trebao da bude uvod u njenu turneju, nisam ni otišla. Ne zato što nisam fan njenog lika i dela, već zato što se fijasko nekako i očekivao sa obzirom da je već imala propale koncerte na kojima se čak nije ni pojavila ili se pojavila drogirana i pijana kao u Beogradu. Ali, dobro to je bila ona.

Snimci sa koncerta u BGu su me slatko nasmejali i gledala sam ih bezbroj puta. Išla sam na bezbroj koncerata raznih izvodjača i gomila njih nikakav utisak nije ni ostavila, jednostavno posle 2 sata zaboravim da sam uopšte bila na bilo kakavom dogadjaju. Njen koncert je svakako ostavio utisak na publiku, negativan da , ali ipak utisak. Onakvu konfuziju na sceni nikada nisam videla ranije, ona je bila sva raspadnuta u haljini  pokušavala je  da peva uz pomoć publike koja zna sve tekstove. Bacala je mikrofon , uvijala se, ma potpuni raspad i rasulo. Ali, opet kazem to je bila Amy. Ti njeni  skandali i nastupi učinili su je tako zanimljivom i različitom od drugih. Njena muzika, tekstovi koje je sama pisala, njena zanimljiva pojava, retko koga je ostavila ravnodušnim. Bila je prava umetnica koju su ljudi shvatali ozbiljno za razliku od mnogih današnjih zvezdica sa britanske scene. Ona je jedna od onih osoba koji ili volite ili mrzite, izmedju obično ne postoji. Kada se pojavila sa svojim albumom  Back to Black 2006.  godine dospela je na prvo mesto svih top lista. U toj godini postala je jedina Britanka koja je osvojila 5 gremi nagrada od kojih su dve bile u kategorijama  za najbolji album i najbolju pesmu. Kada je izašao Back to Black  ja sam se  raspametila slušala sam ga svuda, kod kuće, na iphonu, u kolima. Čak je i moja mama koja inače i nema baš interesovanja za muziku tražila da joj narežem cd da sluša dok vozi.

Ljudi koji su otišli da je slušaju u Beogradu postali su njena poslednja publika i imali su privilegiju da je vide  poslednji put na sceni. A, što se tiče para koje su pukli za kartu ne treba da im bude žao, jer je ona taj novac odavno zaradila. Svi znam da ovde niko ne kupuje orginale već  skida muziku za dz. preko neta. Pa jednom su ljudi  morali da joj plate bar za nešto. Amy je otišla u legendu zajedno sa Janis Joplin, Hendriksom, Cobainom, Dvornikom , umrla je u svojoj 27. godini.  Da li se iz njene smrti stvarno krije neka misterija ili zavera muzičke industrije koja iskorišćava umetnike ili je ona preminula svojom sopstvenom krivicom pokazaće vreme.

Amy stvarno nije morala ovo da nam priredi na neki način je ispala glupa kučka, svet je još jednom ostao bez odlične umetnice koja je umrla prerano. Ali, ako je za bilo kakvu utehu kažu u paklu je ekipa….i bila je u pravu

Love is a loseing game,  even Life is a loseing game….;((((

R. I. P. Amy, You  will be remembered

When  program on B92  was interrupted and when They said that there is new breaking news and started to mention her name it was clear what was going on. Amy was found dead in Her apartment in Camden. Some things in life are sadly predictable . Couple of my friends tought that this fiasco of her concert which was held in Belgrade will be Her last. This concert  supposed to be promotion of  her new album (that began to be sold in enormous quantities, together with the old albums that after her death sharply increased sales) and is supposed to be a prelude to her new tour. I never went  to Her Belgrade concert actually. Not because I am not fan of Hers, but because I somehow expected a fiasco, cause She had  failures before  on some of concerts. She didnt  even appear or has appeared drugged and drunk as in Belgrade. But that was Her.

Recordings of the concert in Belgrade I saw on You tube, it  was very funny I laughed and watched them countless times. I went to many concerts of various performers and a bunch of Them did not leave any impressions, just after 2 hours I even forget that I  attended  any event. Her concert left impression, probably negative but it was an impression.  That kind of confusion on the scene I have never seen before. She was all falling a part  in her tight dress, trying to sing with the audience that knows all  lyrics, threwing  the microphone, however a complete collapse. But again as I said  that was Amy. These scandals and her performances have made her so interesting and different from others. Her music, lyrics written by herself, her interesting  apearance  is rarely neutral. She was a true artist that people took seriously, unlike many of today’s stars from British music scene. She was one of those people who audience either love or hate. When she appeared with her album Back to Black,  in year 2006.  album made it to the first place on all charts. She became the first  British woman who won five Grammy awards, two of which were in the categories for best album and best song. When She released Back to black I was so delighted I listened to it everywhere, at home, on my iPhone,  in the car. Even my mom who is  not very interested in music bought a cd to listen  while driving.
People who went to concert in Belgrade have become last audience and had the privilege to see her for the last time on stage. And, as far as money They spent, should not feel sorry for Themself , because She earned that money long  time ago, all I know no one here is buying  originals, everybody take music for free over the internet. And once people  had to pay her at least for something. Amy become a legend along with Janis Joplin, Hendrix, Cobain, Dvornik. She was 27 years old when She died. Maybe her death is really a hidden mystery or conspiracy of  music industry that exploits artists or She died by Her own fault, time will tell….
Amy really did not need  to prepare this to Her fans.  In some way  She turned out to be dumb bitch, the world is once again left without a great artist who died too soon.
But She was right
Love is loseing  game even  Life is a loseing game ….;((((

R. I. P. Amy, U will be remembered …..
