    Amy Winehouse's dad is fucking pissed over designer Jean Paul Gaultier's decision to manipulate his daughter's iconic image as inspiration for a recent runway show. He paid tribute to the singer at his Paris Fashion Week last Wednesday by sending his models down the runway sporting the Winehouse's iconic beehive hairstyle and heavy eyeliner. Several girls were also smoking as they strutted down the catwalk. Tsk tsk. Sigh. What clichés.

    Mitch Winehouse is mad because he thinks JPG is using his daughter's image to image a profit, saying, "The family was upset to see those pictures, they were a total shock. We're still grieving for her loss, and we've had a difficult week with the six-month anniversary of Amy's death. To see her image lifted wholesale to sell clothes was a wrench we were not expecting or consulted on. We're proud of her influence on fashion but find black veils on models, smoking cigarettes with a barbershop quartet singing her music in bad taste. It portrays a view of Amy when she was not at her best, and glamorizes some of the more upsetting times in her life. That's upsetting for her family. No one asked us for permission or offered to make a donation to the foundation. This is purely about Gaultier making money, and that's wrong."

    The Family Winehouse are still grieving and mourning and are not in the closure phase yet.
