For you I was a flame
Bette Midler was on TV last night saying she wants to smack Amy Winehouse. Then she explained that everyone knows how amazing Amy is except for the girl herself. I watched her youtube performace of the lyrically-relevant Valerie with Mark Ronson (watch below) this morning and got a bit teary. She also did a good version of the beautiful Love Is A Losing Game. Amy is such a treasure.
And of course she uttered that hilarious and quotable dedication at the Grammy's: "To my Blake. My Blake incarcerated."
