If Lady Gaga wants to try out for the role of Amy Winehouse in a film about her life, she's got Mitch Winehouse's blessing. The late singer's father told U.K. magazine Heat that there will definitely be an Amy biopic and "Lady Gaga is welcome to audition for the part of Amy—she would be great."
It's no doubt Gaga would nail the part looks-wise—throw on some cat eyeliner and the two look like sisters. But the "Born This Way" singer might need some work on her English accent. Mitch Winehouse told the Daily Star earlier this year, "I don't know what her English accent is like but it's not just an English accent she would have to perfect—it's an English-Cockney-Jewish accent so she better start practicing now." That's a tall order, Gaga. Are you up for it?
In related Lady Gaga/late iconic singers news, Gaga is now the proud owner of 55 pieces of Michael Jackson memorabilia that she won at auction. After placing her bid last night, Gaga tweeted, "The 55 pieces I collected today will be archived & expertly cared for in the spirit & love of Michael Jackson, his bravery, & fans worldwide."
