No one cares that Amy Winehouse is sick. Seriously.
Some crack head that can sing a little bit is sick from their crack, cocaine and alcohol addiction, big deal. At least, she appears to have the resources to handle her addictions and medical problems, the thing is that she is choosing to not do anything about it.
Have y’all seen the crack head on the corner with the sign begging for help?

The person that really wants help but can’t afford it, and probably doesn’t know where to go get started on the road to recovery? That’s the person that we should really care about. I don’t mean to discount Amy Winehouse’s crack addiction and emphysema, but seriously, she doesn’t want nor need our help.
I say, ignore her, and maybe she’ll go away.
If you really want to care for someone with a drug problem, care for the guy that used to have a job, a house, a car, a wife, a family, etc. that lost everything and is now living on the streets because of his drug addiction. That guy just needs a helping hand to pull him out from the pit. Care for that guy. That guy doesn’t have the resources to check himself into a $1000 a day rehab center.
How many times have you seen that guy with the sign and thought “he did that to himself, if I give him money, he’s just going to go buy drugs with it” yet at the same time you’re jamming out to an Amy Winehouse song or some other song on the radio, or your iPod not realizing the connection between the guy on the corner and the person “singing” on your radio. A drug addict, is a drug addict no matter where they live.
In my opinion, the media needs to stop referring to her as “Grammy winner” and start calling her “the crack head.”
OK, I’ll get off my little soap box now.
