    The father of late singer Amy Winehouse hates Beyoncé's cover of his daughter's hit "Back to Black," which is featured in the forthcoming, no brainer smash film The Great Gatsby.

    Mitch Winehouse ranted, "I don't think she brings anything to it." That's a mean thing to say.

    He also revealed that no one bothered to ask him if the song could be covered, stating, "I wasn't asked for my permission if they could record it."

    He has since agreed to the usage, but for a price. He said, "They have got to pay for the privilege, which is what they are doing. I can't tell you how much it is but it's a lot of money."

    You got paid, so pipe down, Papa Wino.

    Have you heard the snippets of Beyoncé's Amy Winehouse cover? And what do you think? It's good!
