British Talk Show Host Graham Norton: Lay Off Amy Winehouse

By Robert Paul Reyes


"In an interview with the Radio Times, Graham Norton says he has always toned down his bawdy humor for his BBC chat show and adds there are certain topics that he avoids. "Audiences don`t find Amy Winehouse funny anymore because now it`s the walking wounded. Something bad is going to happen; everyone has that sense. And so, although she could be a very useful punchline, we avoid it."

Dude, Please!

Amy Winehouse wasn`t abducted by extraterrestrials and implanted with a device that makes her act like a drunken skank. The pop tart isn`t the victim of a disease that affects her brain, and makes her act irresponsibly.

Amy Winehouse choose to take drugs, drink to excess, and behave like a slut. The troubled singer shouldn`t be exempt from ridicule and condemnation. In fact, it is the duty of bloggers and opinion columnists to poke fun at the scandalous chanteuse, ias a cautionary tale for our younger readers.

Norton is wrong, people do find Amy Winehouse amusing. For every email I get criticizing my Amy Winehouse articles, I get ten thanking me for exposing the drug-addled mess.

Graham Norton is wimping out, be a man dude!
