Exhibit: Amy Winehouse – A Family Portrait

amy winehouse jewish museum

One of my favorite artists is Amy Winehouse. I’ve been surprised at how little has been done to remember her but her family has agreed to help put together an exhibit at the Jewish Museum in London. Curated by her brother Alex Winehouse and his wife Riva, “Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait” will show unseen images of Amy Winehouse, as well as her personal effects including her Grammy, clothing and guitar.

The Jewish Museum London website states:

The family have given the Jewish Museum unprecedented access to Amy’s personal belongings that celebrate her passion for music, fashion, suduko, Snoopy, London and her family.

Amy was close to her family and had a strong sense of her Jewish roots and heritage. The exhibition will show many unseen photographs of Amy’s family life – Friday night dinners, Alex’s Barmitzvah and vintage photographs of their beloved grandmother Cynthia.

Since Amy Winehouse’s family is involved with this exhibition I’m sure it will be touching and will give us a glimpse to the true person that Amy Winehouse was – and that I miss dearly. I only hope that this exhibition will travel to The Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco.

Video: Lana Del Rey “Young and Beautiful”

The Great Gatsby released this weekend and had I not been spending time with my family for Mother’s Day festivities I would have been there.  Instead, my cute daughter and handsome husband won out.  So until I can get my in-laws to watch my daughter so my man and I can get to the movies, I’ll just watch Lana Del Rey’s video for Young and Beautiful over and over again.

Del Rey’s “Young and Beautiful” video has the usual graininess that we’re accustomed to seeing in Lana’s videos but the scenery is more grand as she’s accompanied by a full orchestra.  She looks and sounds lovely as usual and I’m loving her crystal tears – a bit “cholafied” just fancier.

Video: Stooshe Slip & New Album Coming Soon

The Stooshe ladies are riding their retro wave with their newest release “Slip” – a modern take on a sixties girl-group song. I like the sound that hearkens back to a different era and I love the bowling team styling.

Their new album London With The Lights On releases later this month but you can pre-order now on iTunes.

New Lauryn Hill Track: “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”

Oh, how long have I waited for the day for Lauryn Hill to pick up a mic again? Here she is with Neurotic Society a heavy track that you may need to listen to a few times over to hear everything. I hope there will be much more where this came from…
