Best New Upset: Best New Artist Grammy Winners Who Beat Out Bigger Acts

Originally posted 02/04/2015 06:20AM

The Best New Artist Grammy is perennial fodder for think pieces, mostly because for every time the award has gone to a new artist who then gains fame and fortune, there's another that's gone to people who – perhaps sadly, perhaps deservedly – had somewhat … truncated careers.

Amy Winehouse's Ex-Husband Placed on Life Support: Report

Originally posted 08/10/2012 06:15AM

The ex-husband of Amy Winehouse is on life support in a U.K. hospital after suffering multiple organ failure following his apparent ingestion of drinks and drugs, says a British newspaper report.

Blake Fielder-Civil, 30, was rushed to the hospital in Dewsbury, West Yorks, on Thursday after he was found choking in bed after drinking, according to the U.K. Sun, which also reports that his partner, Sarah Aspin, thinks he may have taken an illicit substance.

"The doctors say they don't know the prognosis," Aspin, who is the mother of Fielder-Civil's 15-month-son, told the Sun. "They said they put him in a coma to help him and due to infection."

Grammy Awards Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston, Etta James

Originally posted 02/13/2012 02:30PM

On a night intended to pay homage to the biggest names in music today, two of the Grammy Awards's biggest honorees were the megastars no longer in the room: Etta James and Whitney Houston.

After host LL Cool J opened Sunday's ceremony with a prayer for Houston, announcing "a death in our family," the audience rose in a standing ovation.

"When a truly great artist leaves us, their legacy lives on," Alicia Keys later told the stars gathered at Los Angeles's Staples Center, before joining Bonnie Raitt in a graceful cover of James's "A Sunday Kind of Love."

But the most moving tribute came from Jennifer Hudson, whose elegant but understated rendition of Houston's "I Will Always Love You" brought audience members to their feet once again.

Rumors recently surfaced that Amy's ex-boyfriend, filmmaker Reg Traviss, had been in talks to produce a biopic about the singer, who died in July at age 27.

Amy Winehouse's Cause of Death: Alcohol Poisoning

Originally posted 10/26/2011 10:25AM

Amy Winehouse's July 23 death was the "unintended consequence" of drinking too much alcohol, British coroner Suzanne Greenaway announced Wednesday.

Ruling that it was "death by misadventure," the coroner stated that Winehouse, 27, was more than five times over the legal limit, according to the inquest, and two large bottles and one small bottle of vodka were found in the bedroom of her London home.

Winehouse was an "intelligent, determined young woman who, at times, was able to successful abstain from alcohol," the coroner said while announcing the cause of death as "alcohol toxicity."

Winehouse's parents, Mitch and Janis, were in the court to hear the verdict. At the end, Mitch, a taxi driver and singer, embraced his daughter's doctor, Christina Romete.

Wednesday would have been the 28th birthday of Amy Winehouse.

To mark the day, the song "Body and Soul" – which Winehouse recorded as a duet with Tony Bennett a few months before she was found found dead on July 23 – is being released, with proceeds from sale going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation established by her family, "to support charities and organisations undertaking charitable activities in both the United Kingdom and abroad who help, support, or care for young people," according to a statement.

On the foundation's website a good-humored Amy can be seen in a clip, noting that the song is her father Mitch's favorite. She also jokes about meeting Bennett – "Can I call him 'Tone'?" she asks.
