ModMusic: Amy Winehouse Sober Is Not Much Fun

Regular readers know that I have a thing for Amy Winehouse, the British chanteuse/drunk mess whose stateside debut, Back to Black, drops next month. Amy is undeniably talented, but her wacked-out behavior makes her unpredictable....but maybe it's what makes her great. Is that politically incorrect to say? You be the judge. Here's a performance of her worldwide smash "Rehab" at the Brit Awards last week, by a theoretically sober Ms. Winehouse. It's the most painful live performance I've seen in years: she tugs on her uncomfortable wig, she tugs on her uncomfortable dress, and she shows about as much energy as a department store mannequin. Disappointing. Avoid rehab, Amy...like Janis Joplin, Robbie Williams, and Paula Abdul, we much prefer you when you're crocked.
