The World Is Not Enough…

As you may have heard, Beauty and the Beast….er, Alicia Keys and Jack White, have recorded the theme for the new 007 flick, Quantum Of Solace.

You may not have heard but Amy Crackhouse was also in the running for the film’s title track.

Reportedly, Lashes and Mark Ronson were asked first. However they apparently weren’t able to provide quite what the suits wanted, so the offer was swiped from the table. Enter White and Keys, superstars in their own right. Problem fixed, right?

Not if Winehouse has anything to say about it.

“I guess they are going for clean-cut and boring. When I do release mine – and I am tempted to do it on the same day – this would be the bigger hit. If they change their minds, I’m waiting!”

I would never take away from Amy’s talent, but can she seriously think a duet between these two diametric musical powerhouses could actually be ‘boring’? Maybe on whatever the fuck she’s smoking. Plus, what’s with her tryin’ to pull a Fifty and drop the same day?

Aside from jealousy, the only explanation for her ego-trip that I can come up with is that she must be…sober?
