Amy Winehouse doesn’t really have emphysema (Yay?)

June 24th, 2008 // 46 Comments

Okay, remember when Amy Winehouse’s dad Mitch said she has emphysema and was going to die? Well, he might have embellished things a bit. Turns out Amy has “low level signs” of the disease. But it’s technically not emphysema and the damage is reversible – if she quits smoking. So, perhaps Mitch was getting a preemptive jump on when she’ll have it. My money’s on July. Anyway, here’s what he told BBC Radio:

“Amy really hasn’t got emphysema, there’s traces of emphysema. Obviously, if she doesn’t quit smoking, it’s going to get worse, like everyone else … with patience her lungs will recover completely.”

So essentially, Amy has the same predisposition to emphysema as any other smoker. Real smooth, Mitch. Way to cry wolf on that one. Now nobody’s going to believe you when Amy gets so freaking high next week, she travels through a wormhole to become the queen of Reverse Earth and collapses the entire space/time continuum. Oh, that’s great, Mitch. Just great. Call me old-fashioned, but I’m sort of attached to, oh I dunno, EXISTING. Goddammit, I knew that beehive was no good. I could tell by the way it’s always looking at me no matter where I’m standing…

  5. Mr. Sleepyhead

    I saw her on Animal Planet last week. Isn’t she one of the new Merkats in Merkat Manor?

  6. can we please have one day where we don’t have to see a pic of this ugly skank on here?

    Oh, #2 – you are a douche bag.

  7. Strange

    I never understood her hair-do… is it real and super matted and tangled? Or is it fake and super matted/tangled?

  8. surrounded by idiots

    what the hell is with her hand!?!? looks like a new disease

  9. Wheres Don Imus when you need him? Shes a filthy, nappy headed ho!

  10. Harry Mellonballs

    Perhaps the reports of emphysema were a bit premature, but it’s clear to see that she’s now suffering from a full blown case of vagina-hand (alternatively known as “cooter paw,” “snatchy palm,” “ho-bag hoof,” and in German: “kunten handen”).

  11. #5 I saw that episode! She was kicked out of the herd because she is so damn ugly.

  12. SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHIT!!!!

  13. KDF

    Damn! I was hoping they were going to announce that she had a terminal case of aids. I’m guessing that is the real truth, and they just don’t want to admit it, as it’s not nice to upset the queen of the damned!

  16. tight lipped smiler

    Forget emphysema. This is the person who could easily spread leprosy to epidemic proportions.

  17. Kate

    Does anyone else think she looks like John Travolta in drag, on crack?

    This betch needs to perish.

  18. smith

    Let’s save time and list every disease she DOESN’T have traces of.

  19. Lola

    HOW MANY MORE PICTURES OF THIS DISEASED HUMAN STAIN DO I HAVE TO STARE AT? DIE ALREADY CRACK-HOUSE

  20. Kate2

    She is so beyond gross. Her hair looks like it smells.

  21. MarkM

    Jesus babbling Christ! She looks like the result of a violent collision between Cher and a particularly repulsive bag lady. In fact, I think just looking at that picture has fused my contact lenses to my corneas….wait….no, I got ‘em out. But…..Jesus! And her old man refers to “his beautiful daughter”! She must have a sister, right? I mean, he can’t be referring to THAT!

  22. Maiko Weymiller

    She looks like my mother ‘n law.

  23. Good news. I really like Amy. I hope she can pull it together.

  24. Good news. I really like Amy. I hope she can pull it together.

  25. LIZ

    THIS IS THE UGLIEST BITCH ON EARTH. I DON’T KNOW WHY YOU KEEP GIVING HER PUBLICITY. SHE LOOKS LIKE A OLD SKELTON WITH THE MOST HIDEOUS FACE I HAVE EVER SEEN. PLEASE, I BEG YOU YOU, QUIT SHOWING HER!!!!

  26. Flavio

    well, if you know anything about lung functioning, the ‘emphysema’ diagnosis was total BS from the start. its not something you ‘catch’, and it takes a lot, lot lot of smoking to develop, no 24 year old could have full blown emphysema no matter how much they have smoked, unless they were just smoking pure tar off the road.

    the reason she is collapsing, with an out of control heart rate, coughing up blood, her body unable to repair wounds and heal properly, and all of her other health problems are because she is only taking in drugs, and no food. even if she kept up her insane levels of drug consumption, she would be much better off if she just ate. what is her problem here, she’s got enough money to have all the crack she wants and plenty of take-out too. but if all you’re getting is the crack, your body breaks down and dies. this girl is a short ways off from major organ failure, there is no need to exaggerate any of her other problems. she needs to eat, several times per day, every day, from now on. if she does that she’ll be fine, smoking or not smoking, drugs or no drugs. if she doesn’t she will die. soon.

  27. Toby Weymiller

    She looks like you.

  28. McLashen Obama

    I think the dad’ in denial, it’s classic, “everything is fine nothing to see!”

    so will she change?

    no probably not. and there is only one ending to this story

  29. Dani

    I like Amy Winehouse. People that beg on posts to stop showing her are ass clowns. Make your own damn blog and choose which celebrities to address and shut the fuck up.

    The only “celebrities” that shouldn’t be getting any publicity are Heidi and Spencer because they are unbelievably annoying twats with no souls.

  30. Kim Lardassian

    FUCK does that mean bitch won’t die soon?? She needs to DIE.

  31. Coulda Had a V8

    Mitch Winehouse needs to STFU and take a page from Jamie Spears.

    I like Amy Winehouse, too, but have doubts about her sobriety, no matter what her PR pimps and whores tell us. Amy was shoved in the hospital, hosed down, mildly detoxed, fed and made to sleep, so she can be April fresh for the Mandela show. BTW, she did the same for the Grammys.

    On that pic, Amy was wearing that self-tanning shit, nasty woman didn’t wash her hands and had that crap on her hands for over a week.

  32. bar room hero

    She looks bad, still looks like a Transsexual tho

  33. amy's hand

    The hand must be a prelude of what her vagina looks like:
    old
    wrinkly
    run down
    smells like smegma

  34. Maybe she doesn’t have emphysema, but her anorexia is worsening. Just look at the ribs above her shrunken tits and her skinny arms. Her fainting could have been caused by either emphysema or anorexia alone. She needs – rehab. Well, what she really needs is a good long stay in a mental hospital specializing in drug abuse and anorexia.

  35. Leap

    Dammit! I got excited for nothing…

  36. WTH? Why are her palms orange and wrinkly?

    Amy Winehouse officially looks like a creature from “The Dark Crystal”.

  37. VP

    this is a very beautiful young (24) woman who we can all see the effects of major drug use and as said above -she needs to eat! Healthy organic veggies & fruits! Otherwise, we are going to lose an amazing part of musical history. She does look like a friggin monster now -but please don’t judge her in this state of complete hot mess -ness. nab: ‘some unholy war’ & ‘stronger than me’ by her and give up some credit. She isn’t some dipshit actor pretending to be someone like this. She IS the artist. Poor baby. I wish her the best. Please help her someone!!

  38. starla

    @38 — are you realy so stupid to call this mess a “poor baby”?? This talentless peice of crap should die & so should anyone feeding into her “poor Amy, look at me” BS. She’s brought this on herself…don’t give me her sad sack of shit stories.

  39. stoplookingatme

    She looks like she should be at a garage sale (no doubt haggling over the price of a 50-cent item while a cigarette dangles from the corner of her mouth.) Hey, maybe she should pick up an oxygen tank while she’s there!

  40. #26 – you nailed it – that’s EXACTLY what is happening to her…er, it, er, whatever.

  43. I was a pack and a half a day smoker and quit smoking in one 30-minute treatment with laser therapy. I went to a company called Freedom Laser Therapy that provides a pain free low-level laser procedure which helps alleviate nicotine withdrawal symptoms. More smokers should learn this method to quit smoking is available for them. http://www.freedomlasertherapy.com
