The film adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ – starring the award-winning cast of Casey Mulligan, Leonardo DiCaprio and Tobey Maguire – is slated to hit theatres in May, and according to E! Online, Beyonce and Andre 3000 have teamed up to cover the late Amy Winehouse’s breakthrough hit ‘Back to Black’ for the movie’s soundtrack.
Amy Winehouse did indeed die from alcohol poisoning, a new inquest has revealed. Authorities in London made the announcement today (Jan. 8), and while the initial inquest into Winehouse's July 23, 2011, death ended with the same conclusion, it was annulled last year, when it was discovered that the coroner who conducted the investigation was not properly qualified at the time, reports Rolling Stone.
The London home in which Amy Winehouse's body was discovered when she died in July 2011 at the age of 27 has sold at auction for $3.2 million, reports the BBC. The semi-detached Camden Square property went under the hammer on Monday (Dec. 3) at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) headquarters in the Piccadilly section of London.
Lady Gaga has been named as a "great" choice to play Amy Winehouse in a biopic by none other than the later singer's dad, Mitch Winehouse. Speaking to Heat, Mitch told the publication that a Winehouse movie was definitely in the works and that Gaga would be perfect for the role. "There will be a biopic," he said. "Lady Gaga is welcome to audition for the part of Amy -- she would be great. Ray Winstone will probably end up playing me."
