It’s not much fun being Amy Winehouse at the moment, what with the dodgy husband, the parents asking people to stop buying your records, the paparazzi popping out from behind bins, and the continual reports claiming you have a drug habit that makes Pete Doherty look like a lightweight.
You’d think the silver lining would be a search engine ranking going through the roof, but not according to Yahoo’s Buzz Index for musicians. Amy trails in 18th place, way behind the search engine titans Britney Spears, Rihanna and Beyonce. And according to Yahoo, her ranking is actually on the slide, despite the last week’s kerfuffle.
There’s a lesson in this somewhere, along the lines of ‘drugs are bad, you’d be better off fighting a custody battle with K-Fed, falling over on-stage, and singing about umbrellas’. Take note, Kids.
