Mitch Winehouse unimpressed by Beyoncé cover
Mitch Winehouse is unimpressed with Beyoncé's cover of Back To Black
Mitch Winehouse has spoken out against Beyoncé's cover of his late daughter Amy's song Back To Black. Speaking about the new version, which was recorded for the soundtrack of The Great Gatsby, Mitch said: "I don’t think she brings anything to it... I wasn’t asked for my permission if they could record it."
He has now given his consent - but only for the right price. ‘They have got to pay for the privilege, which is what they are doing. I can’t tell you how much it is but it’s a lot of money", he added.
MSN Music spoke to Mitch and ex-wife Janis at the Brits earlier this year. Take a look in the video player below.
She had huge talent and deserved the money.
He has no talent.

waste of space, just like his druggie daughter.
He is an absolutely disgusting man. Maybe if she had a father that cared about her rather than the money he could make off her then she might still be with us.
If the songs are owned by a publisher and not Mitch they don't need his permission. I never understood what all the fuss was with Amy---she could sing a bit but was nothing special--No Dusty Springfield--
and didn't Beyoncé MIME at that president thing--UNFORGIVABLE and then says it was cold and she didn't feel very well poor lamb.
