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