In some religions they say that in death we find peace and tranquillity, while assuming the form of an animal by way of spiritual expression.
In life Amy Winehouse was a lost soul stuck on a path not of her own choosing and forced to live with the daily consequences of that enforced lifestyle. To a large extent she failed and instead hid herself inside a bottle, a square of foil or the contents of a cigarette paper.
The wounds of her passing on July 23rd are still too raw for many to allow her to move on and according to her father Mitch, she is still with him in spirit. And that must suit his current publicity drive.
Furthermore, the crooked and too-good-to-be-true Mitch Winehouse now claims that his daughter paid guests at her funeral a visit in the guise of a black butterfly.
“When I did the eulogy at her funeral, as I got up to speak, a black butterfly came in.”
“I had my head down because I was reading and I could hear people muttering and I thought the paparazzi had got in.”
“It landed on Kelly Osbourne’s shoulder then flew around me, have you ever heard anything like that in your life? It’s incredible.”
While Anderson Cooper may have been amazed by Mitch’s story, the more sceptical amongst us should rightly question his motives.
For a former taxi driver who has forged his own singing career on the back of his exploited daughter’s fame; who used her as leverage to form a trust in her name only after she had died and who continues to seek publicity for himself to assume that the girl he forced into a destructive music career would come back as a butterfly is utterly insulting to her.
If she had any sense at all she’d come back as a black bull and charge through the sycophantic crowd, stomp on the pointlessly famous-for-being-somebody-famous’s-daughter Kelly Osbourne’s head and steam towards her insidious father, pinning him to the dais before goring him to death.
Even now he won’t let her rest,just as when she was alive and struggling with her addictions and lifestyle. The best he could do for all concerned is shrink away and never speak again because his continual use of her as some sort of religious icon is wearing thin. A little investigation into her estate should be carried out. I wouldn’t bet against Mitch Winehouse being the beneficiary of her royalties.
Perhaps he is a ghost too, the spirit of a former self come back as a leech.
