    Post Amy Winehouse cut a tragic figure last

    From Ravaged Amy Winehouse looks worse than ever as she stumbles out of Camden pub at 3.30am | Mail Online

    Amy Winehouse cut a tragic figure last night as she stumbled through the streets of Camden looking worse than ever.
    The singer, who has largely keep out of public view in recent weeks, was a guest DJ at her local pub the Monarch, where she emerged in a dishevelled, bleary-eyed state.


    What does "cut a tragic figure" mean?

    She looked like a character from a tragic novel.

    (She looked horrible.)

    I read about that silly drunken Lily something insulting Elton John throughout a presentation a week ago. Where do you pick them?
    (I know; we all have them!). Perhaps we all need to take a look at ourselves for supporting behaviour like this.
