Well the Grammy’s are about recognizing artist talent and album sales, so based on that yes we should celebrate her album, it was one of the best for 2007.

Mostly all of the best artist through out history have been tortured souls; Vincent Van Gough, Earnest Hemmingway, John Belushi, Janis Joplin… to name a few. Amy is one of those people, here to give us a beautiful body of work and then fade into eternal fame. Parents need to discuss with their kids the dangers of living a life in excess.

Ok so yes she is a drug addict, but the fact of the matter is that she is getting help so we should be applauding her. And no she’s probably not the best role model for children but her music is’nt something that children should be listening to anyway. My 4 year old daughter does like her songs but she does’nt understand what she’s talking about yet, older children that might understand probably should’nt.
