Amy Winehouse Was Adopting A Kid When She Died

Did you have to take a moment to take in that headline too? Ok, good, I’m glad I’m not alone in this.

But yeah, Amy Winehouse was in the process of adopting the 10-year-old girl pictured above, and it wasn’t just a fleeting notion on her part. Let’s just check out the full heartbreaking story from TMZ:

Amy Winehouse was preparing to adopt a 10-year-old girl from the island of St. Lucia, the girl and her grandmother told a British paper today.

The girl — Dannika Augustine — says she met the singer during one of Amy’s visits to the island over the past few years. She says she was living in poverty with her single mom when Amy took an interest in her.

Dannika tells The Sunday Mirror, “Amy was already my mother. I would call her mum and she would call me her daughter. She took care of me and we had fun together. I loved her and she loved me … She was the most amazing person and I was looking forward to living with her here or in London. I cannot believe she is gone. This is the worst thing that ever happened to me.”

Dannika’s grandmother Marjorie says she spoke to Amy a few weeks ago and that Amy planned to return to St. Lucia next month. She told the paper, “Amy wanted to have a child so bad. If she had not died, there is no doubt she would be here in St Lucia completing the adoption process. There is no way she would have done what she did to herself if Dannika was with her.”

Both of Dannika’s parents had signed off on the adoption.

Just when I thought this whole thing couldn’t get any sadder, it turns out some poor little girl called Amy her mother. And I know it probably would have been a worrisome situation, having Amy Winehouse responsible for a child, but damn, this story really hits me hard. Is anybody else feeling that?

Taylor Swift Covers Eminem; When Will It Stop?

It hurt a little when Taylor Swift covered Mumford and Sons, but I tried to be ok with it. And then when she did the Dixie Chicks cover, I actually thought it was kind of cute. But then she did an Eminem cover. And I don’t know how to deal with these feelings.

Do we still care about Taylor Swift at all, or is she over? I feel like she broke it off with Jake Gyllenhaal and then most people over the age of 17 stopped caring about her around the same time? Or maybe that’s just my fondest wish. Confirm or deny, please!

Miley Cyrus Finally Got A Tattoo I Can Appreciate

Here’s Miley‘s latest body art – it’s that little equality sign on her finger there. Isn’t that nice? She posted it on her Twitter with the caption “All LOVE is equal.” Good going, Miley! This is loads better than that dumb dreamcatcher you have! Congrats!

Ok, everybody, I know that Miley doesn’t care what I think about her tattoos. I know this because she ignores my emails, phone calls, post cards, Twitter replies, and that one fax I sent when I was drunk and feeling competent at the library. I know that she has better things to do than worry what a fellow party-lovin’ Tennessean has to say about her tattoos. But you know what? I can’t just stop caring. I can’t just turn my heart off. So excuse the hell out of me, but I won’t stop feeling my feelings for anybody, especially not Miley.

What do you guys think about Miley’s sweet ink?
