Celebrities are surrounded by managers, publicists and other sycophants who cater to the whims of their employer. I`m sure that Britney`s stooges tell her that she`s a great singer, and Madonna`s subordinates tell her that she doesn`t look a day over thirty.

Amy Winehouse looks like a crackhead who is at her wit`s end  because she accidentally dropped her last rock down her kitchen drain. Magazines work miracles by photoshopping Amy Winehouse until she actually resembles a human being, but Howson captured her skanky essence.
I wouldn`t bid more than a few dollars for Howson`s painting of Amy Winehouse, and I would use the work of art as a dart board.
