Today’s Lesson: If you can at all avoid it, try not to call the audience “monkey cunts.”
From the BBC:
Amy Winehouse [pictured, right, at the Electric Factory this past spring] was booed by fans as she delivered a shambolic set on the first night of her UK tour in Birmingham. The singer also dedicated a song to her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, who is being held on remand pending charges including GBH. During the show, the 24-year-old told the crowd: “To them people booing, wait ’til my husband gets out of incarceration. And I mean that.”
Shortly after the show ended, one disgruntled concertgoer described the “shambolic” performance to PerezHilton.com thusly:
In short, she was fucking terrible. She was very very drunk, she made various rambling references to her ‘husband’ (even going as far to threaten audience members who booed with him) and worst of all, it looked like she was wearing those bloody ballet pumps again. Many audience members booed, and people were continually walking out. She referred to us as ‘monkey cunts’ at one point, and she forgot the words to most of her songs.
