Amy Winehouse: Crack Is Wax at Tussauds
See, wax really does come from a beehive!
Madame Tussauds of London is set to immortalize everyone’s favorite tabloid pop casualty, Amy Winehouse, with a waxen figure later this year.
It would be rude to point out that Amy’s general appearance lately is more a half dead guttersnipe than a celebrity immortal; so let that lie.
In her healthier incarnations (and there is hope yet that she will resurrect one of those) the Winehouse has radiated style, originality and strength in a series of totally personal and powerful signature looks.
Done right, Amy just might give Posh and Becks a run for their money as Tussauds most-visited exhibit.
Here are a few suggestions as to which cherished era of Amy’s career the wax workers should use to model their Winehouse relic. (Vote for your favorite in the poll to the right!)
1. CLASSIC BEEHIVE AMY
Pros: It’s the idealized persona commonly associated with the singer.
Cons: Unfortunately, she may never look this classy again.
2. BAD HAIR DAY AMY
Pros: Don’t be hatin’. Girls just wanna have fun!
Cons: This profile might be better displayed in the “chamber of horrors” section!
3. SECOND CHANCE AMY
Pros: The blonde tresses and sunny disposition symbolize Amy’s willingness to steer her life back on track.
Cons: Mom rocks this look better at the grocery store, with curlers in her hair.
