This is the expression Amy Winehouse gave in the moment of realisation, when it was announced that she won a Grammy Award in 2008, for her record ‘Rehab’.
I love this gif so much because she went through a hell of a lot and you can tell that she is trying to fathom the idea that she actually has made it. She isn’t jumping around like the others in the background but she is standing there so overwhelmed.
I hope you really do rest in piece, heaven gained an inspiring angel.
"He [Amy’s manager] is crying […] and he’s a big guy […], he pulls me outside and he’s like ‘you know she wrote these lyrics for you’ and I was like ‘wow’, you know what I’m saying?” - Nas talking about Cherry Wine
"Every bad situation is a blues song waiting to happen, but I’m romantic. I fall in love every day. Not with people but with situations. The other day, I saw a tramp polishing his shoes. That just gripped my heart."
