Amy Winehouse Fans To Kanye: “Leave Her Music Alone!”

Submitted by on August 21, 2011 – 12:21 pm7 Comments

When UK paper Daily Mirror reported Kanye West wants to cover Amy Winehouse’s “Back To Black” as a tribute, the outcry from her fans was immediate.

While a source for the singer says ‘Ye’s version is “pretty emotive; it’s Kanye singing from the heart—with synthesizers,” Winehouse fans are calling the move another attention-seeking ploy from the producer/MC.

One critic from SFWeekly went as far as saying, “It’s been seven years since The College Dropout and we still can’t figure out if you’re a sly genius or a blinkered buffoon.”

The critic is adamant the late Winehouse would be mortified if Kanye had anything to do with her music, referencing the time she called him a “c*nt” — not once, three times — during her 2008 Glastonbury performance. Afterward, Kanye blogged “Amy Winehouse Hates Me!!! Now I’ve Really Made!!! LOL!!!”

Kanye 34, hopes to perform his version of “Back In Black” while in London for formal menswear retailer Moss Bros’ upcoming 160th anniversary celebrations.
