Amy Winehouse exhibition opens at the Jewish Museum

Amy Winehouse exhibition opens at the Jewish Museum | Herstory | Scoop.it

An exhibition about the life of Amy Winehouse has opened streets away from where she died aged 27.

 

The Jewish Museum in London's Camden Town has worked with her family to gather the star's clothes, record collection and dozens of photographs for the show.

 

The exhibits, put together with the help of her brother Alex, include fridge magnets, childhood books and her audition essay to the Sylvia Young stage school...

 

[Alex] said: "This is a snapshot of a girl who was, to her deepest core, simply a little Jewish kid from north London with a big talent who, more than anything, just wanted to be true to her heritage."

Domestic Violence Is Sexy | BlogHer

Domestic Violence Is Sexy | BlogHer | Herstory | Scoop.it
Why do celebrities and victims of domestic violence like Rihanna continue to glamorize abuse?

 

Why is the media making domestic violence sexy? Because we are letting them.

They’re using the pictures of a leather-clad Rihanna bumping and grinding on stage, not the pictures where her face is torn up and bruised. If we continue to let these celebrities parade their choices in front of us, then we become immune to the truth about domestic violence.
