Natalie Cole has slammed the Grammy voters for Amy Winehouse's five awards at the 50th Grammy Awards.  She said:

"I think she has a great talent, but I don't agree with the Grammys giving her those nods. I think it sends the wrong message, that even in the midst of her stupor of drugs she can get nominated for all these awards. It's a slap in the face to musicians and artists who work very hard that they turn around and give it to someone who really obviously doesn't have a grasp of what she has. I've been in this business over 25 years and I sacrificed five years of my own life on drugs and almost lost my life because of it. So I take great offense to almost see someone getting glory out of being in the position that they're in - she needs to get her life together and embrace her craft."

While I do agree that Amy Winehouse is not in a position to be a role model to others right now because of her battle against drug addiction, she wasn't rewarded for that, she was rewarded for the music she made. Amy isn't the first musician that was in trouble with drugs or the law that has received awards too.  It would've been nicer for Natalie to wish her well in her recovery rather than rain on her parade.
