Lots of conflicting opinions on Amy Winehouse. Here's mine: She was sound to me personally. I gave her a strawberry Anarchy necklace, she said thank you and we had a wee conversation out her window which was funny and stupid, she sent out a signed personalised photo saying she loved it etc. Amy frustrated me in many ways though I couldn't help getting annoyed about her not sorting herself out just because it was sad to see her get worse and worse and her getting a boob job. (I am more open-minded about the boob job now I am a bit older but was annoyed she was worried about the way she looked when she had the biggest talent going elsewhere) I am very sad that mental health , drugs and drink took another talented soul away.
I did relate a lot to Amy and her words, drinking, depression and making a tit of herself when intoxicated and the fact she wanted a baby so badly. Maybe if she got her baby things would have been different :(
I was really hoping she would be happy one day so the news today has upset me a lot, mental illness is fucking shit and so is addiction, don't get me wrong the people in Norway deserve so much sympathy and love at the moment and this shouldn't take away from that tragedy my heart goes out to them. They are very different situations I chose to post about Amy because I felt like I had a connection even if it was a small one.
R.I.P. Amy Winehouse!! I hope all your troubles leave now and you have fun partying with Jimi, Janis, Kurt and Jim.
Cat Morley the founder of cutoutandkeep took these photos of me outside Prowse Place where Amy used to live in London. Amy didn't have to say thanks or be nice and friendly or even give me a wee thing back but she did and I will always remember that day and the trip to London fondly...
