Getting branded by the guy that allegedly snorted the ashes of his father, and the guy that penned the heroin lovin' lyrics to Sticky Fingers is a little bizarre, but HEY, anything goes these days!
In an appearance at the Berlin Film Festival, guitarist Keith Richards, referring to Amy Winehouse, said, “She should get her act together.”
The Stones’ frontman, Mick Jagger, in speaking about Ms. Winehouse and Pete Doherty, said times were different. Mr. Jagger said: “When we were experimenting with drugs, little was known about the effects. In our time there were no rehab centers like today. Anyway, I did not know about them.” Now 64, a grandfather and a fitness fanatic, Mr. Jagger said he couldn’t understand how the younger generation, knowing the dangers of drugs, could still be users.
Little was known about the effects?!?! So in those "olden days" of the 60's and 70's, physicians were just in the dark about the negative effects of shooting up? OK. Man, these guys are freaks.
Jagger and Richards are lucky that YouTube, camera phones, and US Magazine weren't around in their heyday, or they'd have looked as bad in public as Amy Winehouse is being protrayed. I know that many people are like "whatever, she brings it on herself", and I get that, but I feel bad for the girl. She just looks really sad.
But... at least she doesn't look like Cher:
