It looks like someone forgot to tell Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch about Beyonce covering his daughter’s hit song, “Back to Black.” A preview of the track debuted earlier this week in a trailer for The Great Gatsby, which was news to Mr. Winehouse.
“First I have heard about Beyonce and ‘Back to Black’. Sounds like some of you don’t like the idea,” Mitch tweeted. “Let me repeat. This is the first I have heard of Beyonce doing Amy’s song,” he continued.
Mitch then suggested Beyonce make a £100,000 donation to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. “Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there.”
Good luck with that one, Mitch. “Back to Black” is featured on the soundtrack for The Great Gatsby, which is being executive produced by B’s husband, Jay-Z. Also featured on the cover is Atlanta rapper, Andre 3000. No word on if Mitch expects the Outkast to make a donation as well.
