I take issue with the casual "whore" label that gets tossed around at women, no matter how jokey or snarky the intent is.

Oddly enough, if someone says "she looks/dresses like a whore," that's a little different, because you're just describing her clothes.

Is that her in the second picture posted, pre-tats?

Scary, still. I just listen to the music, personally.

That is indeed that. And I don't think it's funny you can so easily label somebody a goddess. I have no problem with that in itself, but I did think it's funny you called me out on my exaggeration. I wouldn't say calling someone a goddess is "exaggerating a bit". At least no more than calling someone a whore without knowing them.

BC's point wasn't that one comparison is more ridiculous than the other, but that:

It's a matter of courtesy, not absurdity.

I think she looks much better in that second picture. I saw it elsewhere recently ... it's from a few years ago, I think.

Courtesy? There's almost no such thing in the realm of celebrity unfortunately. It would be a difference story if I called Bonochick a whore for no good reason, because she doesn't put herself out in the public eye. Not just that, but Winhouse purposely dresses and behaves like she does because that's what will make her stand out and get noticed. In other words, she's asking for it.

Therefore, she's putting herself out there to be judged by the public. Obviously some people will love her and other will hate her. Here we have two perfect examples of that. Bonochick sees her as she is, likes she she sees/hear/whatever, and compliments her be calling her a goddess. I see/hear/whatever her as she is, dislikes it, and insults her by calling her a whore.

That's just how it goes.

You're allowed to have your opinion about someone, but don't be surprised if you're called on for it like you were today..."whore" is much more controversial than "goddess".

For me, I'm still on the fence with her...she has an amazing voice, but she does dress rather whorishly.

You guys are terrible

that's like not liking Thom Yorke because of his eye or Bono because he's fat.

See, I don't even think she has that great of a voice. She sounds very good on the album, but you have to account for snazzy production tricks and limitless takes. All the live performances I've seen leave me extremely unimpressed. She'll be history in <5 years.
