Amy Winehouse: ‘I Dress Like an Old Jewish Black Man.’

October 14th, 2010 // 64 Comments

When you think Harper’s Bazaar, you expect to see interviews with your Gwyneth Paltrows, Christina Hendricks, Scarlett Johanssons and what have you. Classy, regal celebrities who queef into doilies. Which is why it’s hilarious and almost jarring to see an interview with Amy Winehouse where she discusses her new fashion line and sense of style because apparently letting drug addicts design clothes is still chic:

“I just dress like … I’m an old black man. Sorry!” she says. “Like I’m an old Jewish black man. I just dress like it’s still the ’50s.”

First off, I’m pretty sure blacks weren’t allowed to convert to Judaism in the 1950s because that would’ve required a separate synagogue and, oy vey, you know the price of one of those things? Don’t be ridiculous. Second, if such a hybrid did exist, I’m almost 100% positive it would’ve lived in the shadows for fear of bigotry and probably wouldn’t use giant breasts to make a spectacle of itself. So basically the exact opposite of Amy Winehouse, unless it also ate cats.

    Looks like they are trying to clean her up…

  2. It's Still TAB

    What? She is into Sammy Davis, Jr. now? Poor bastard is rolling over in his grave now.

    I thought this bitch was on the brink of death or something? Must be the crack talking again.

  3. Why does her face turn orange somewhere between the first and last photo.

    So what’s the message here, Amy is racist and anti-Semitic? Because she thinks they all dress like junkie crack whores?

  4. It's Still TAB

    Where on this earth do “old, Jewish men,” wear gingum shorty onsies and ballet slippers?!

  5. iowa

    you homo’s…
    I think she’s f’n hot!
    I’d do her in a second.

  6. fester

    She almost got it right. It’s not how she dresses, it’s when she’s naked that she looks like an old man.

  7. noodles

    She actually looks somewhat healthy in these shots – nutty, but healthy.

    Can’t believe i’m saying this …..but she actually looks good. Healthy even. Good for her.

  9. The ONLY Hetero in this Joint

    As the ONLY massively heterosexual male in this community I’m just going to give Amy a big shout out – if Gavin Rossdale isn’t available I would definitely let her bl*w me whilst I massaged her breastiage.

    ‘Whilst’ – get the ye olde english slant I put on that…?

    Damn it….I’m good.

  10. Sammy Davis, Jr.

    You bigot.

  11. A. She looks ALMOST normal in photos 1 and 2. Then she’s back to the heavy eye stuff with a tan?
    B. She either must have spent most of her cash on drugs or learned to mix and match clothing parts.
    C. Even on my current losing streak I still couldn’t do her!

  12. Pussy Crusher

    would crush

  13. hellokittylover

    Her body is perfection! im so jealous of her figure even though she got by doing drugs =/-

  14. Sammy Davis Jr.

    She dresses like me? I’m keeping an eye out for this girl!

    Isn’t that Harold Ramis in the background?! LOL

    For you Sandra Rose: The original Jewish people were from Ethiopia. They were people of color. Check your history.

    Oops, this isn’t even dumb ass Sandra Rose. It’s Superficial. That makes it worse. Thought you guys were smarter.

    Where the new album? Where’s the new songs?
    That’s why people put up with the all the drama & angst connected to this woman, because everyone hopes she’ll write some lyrics & songs.
    There IS a new album that will be released soon….right Amy?

    There ARE Black Jewish people. And there were black synagogues built by Black Jews. Make fun of celebrities all you want but don’t you dare denounce the hard work of African-American and other ethnic ( aka non-white) Jewish people. There are millions of Jews in the world who are not white and did not convert to Judaism. There are Black Jews in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Nigeria, Egypt, Libya, Sudan and etc. Do your homework because your starting to sound stupid and not funny at all!

  21. anonymous

    some of u guys are nuts. she still looks like shit.

    she looks good in the very first photo because the flash caught her at the right angle and lit her up perfectly.

  22. The petulant one

    Yes, she looks like shit. Yes, she’s nutso. Yes, I’d fuck her despite all.

  23. That explains the look of surprise on the old, white jewish guy standing behind her. He doesn’t dress anything like her.

    Note: unlike Amy Winehouse i’ll be probably sleeping from 12:00 pm until 7:00 am!

  26. whitepuzzylover

    damn. I’d beat that up

    That’s the face of a guy who got lured in by the back view only to find the front view doesn’t match.

    You never heard of Sammy D?

    wups, I meant

    Sammy Davis, Jr. was a much classier dresser on his worst days than this woman

    She dresses like a Las Vegas Bar Whore from the ’50s.

    It doesn’t change the fact that she’s haggard.

  34. welldoneson

    It’s ironic because this is EXACTLY what an old Jewish man would look like if he had breast implants.

    And legs.

    Commented on this photo:

    I think she was trying to refer to Sammy Davis Jr. in that quote. Had she remembered one eyed, it might have said Brat Pack instead of slightly racist, slightly she just is spewing jibberish.

    Are you sure you are actually posting pix of the real Amy Winehouse?
    This chick does resemble Amy but she is standing upright without someone supporting her and she isn’t showing her nipples or her vag to the world.
    These must be pictures of a female impersonator/look-a-like of Amy’s.
    Seriously, this is the best she has looked in a very long time. It is kind of nice to see her upright and apparently sober. Now, if she can just get back to singing like she did when she won all of those Grammy Awards, that would be superb!

    I really don’t approve of this line:

    “First off, I’m pretty sure blacks weren’t allowed to convert to Judaism in the 1950s because”

    I’m fairly certain black people will find “blacks” offensive.

    • Blewish Man

      i’m fairly certain you can’t speak with any authority on how millions of people, and a social construct, may or may not feel.

      You should be offended because yes, that was a stupid thing to write. agreed.

    Is she saying she’s like Sammy Davis Jr.? When was the last time she wore a tux and tap danced?

    Wait, I’m pretty sure that the person you ALL are referencing (SAMMY DAVIS JR.) was a black person that converted to Judaism in the 50′s. I mean, am I in the Twilight Zone, or is this person a shmuck? smh. And, no Amy, you’re not him….even though I love you.

  42. misha

    Someone please take those nasty ballet flats away from her. Are those the same pair she’s been wearing for the last three years? Get some new shoes bitch.

  43. BoBo Weinstein

    As a black fashionably dressed jewish man, I resemble that remark…

    Stupid. Not funny. Don’t care if you’re Jewish or Black-doesn’t mean you’re allowed to write/say as you wish. Yes, people will actually believe this and repeat it. Yes, I know your a medium-talent writing for a trashbloid blog, but you can’t be that careless. Also, don’t care if someone else liked it. Not cool.

    There have always been Black Jews so why would someone have to convert? If one or more of your parents and/or your family has been Jewish for generations, it doesn’t make a difference if you’re a brother or another…
