Our beloved Amy Winehouse made the countdown.
#26 out of 100 i was happy but at the same time i feel she deserved to be more on the TOP. Some "artists" didn't deserve to be MENTIONED AT ALL nicki minaj? Katy Perry? c'mon now.


John 17:25-26 “Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.”

Stupid that artists without any talent got put over one that deserved a top 5 position, but that's what happens when VH1 made the poll like they did. Publicity, the fact you could vote a bunch, Amy categorized wrong, other factors like that lead to her not getting as high as she did.

I'm not too upset, being on it that high is nothing to scoff about, but it is very awful when a Lady Gaga ripoff makes it over the most unique talent on the list.

She wouldn't care very much and I don't think we should either. Making the list was good enough for me.

Well, of course Amy deserved a much higher position. She is more talented than any of the other artists on the countdown, in my personal opinion. However, it's VH1. Their polls are always ridiculous. At least she was on there.

I watched it today and it was very sincere. It's so interesting to see the kind of fans she had - I never expected Colbie Calliet to be a fan, but she obviously really loved Amy. Or Sammie from the Jersey Shore. All kinds of people were attracted to her.

The segment made me really sad. I hate flashbacks to the day of her death and the street scene. Terrible.

Though one thing that really angers me is how shes portrayed as never getting better. Obviously she never got completely recovered from alcohol, but nobody gives her credit for getting so much better after getting off drugs. In the tribute, a woman says "I always expected her to get her act together but that never happened" and I just think its a pure, insulting, and frankly rude gesture as though to make people think she never tried to help herself when in fact she was doing very well in her last two years of life. If she had actually continued down the path she was in during 2008, which is how most people say she was, I know for sure she would have died in 2009, no doubt. Those photos at the end of 2008 are terrifying. Compare those with photos in most of 2011 and tell me with a straight face she wasn't cleaning up her act.

I agree [MENTION=2042]MDPA[/MENTION] - people seem to want to time warp her into 2008 when she had tried so hard to get better and was a different girl in 2011. There are lots of pics on the forum which prove the point! God what that girl went through breaks my heart!
I love you in a place where there's no space or time...Forever you will be a true friend of mine:)

I agree. When many people think of Amy, they think of drugs, a crazy woman, and someone that wouldn't go to rehab because she said "no no no." That was in 2007-2008. Even then her music was amazing.
After 2008, she cleaned up a bit and started acting a bit more normal. Although she still had a drinking problem, she cleaned up A LOT.
She was looking good!

Overall, she should have been in AT LEAST the top 10.

Yeah, I hate it when people act like she never got any better. She was really cleaning up her act towards the end there. Such a damn shame.

You should tell your friends otherwise! I hate it when people make ignorant comments like that. I just politely correct them and drop the subject.

I think we're just chatty people. Some people just get on here to read, not post. :) That used to be me, but now I actually post. I was a long time reader before I made an account and started posting.
