Lily Allen Could Have Ended Up Like Amy Winehouse

“I’ve had nights out with Amy and know exactly what used to go on. It’s so easy to get caught up in that madness. I’ve been strong enough to walk away. When Amy died, I got several texts from friends saying they were really glad I was still here, that I hadn’t died too.”

Lily Allen remembers her friend and fellow British pop star Amy Winehouse. Lily has alluded to her past struggles with drugs and alcohol in other interviews, like when she recalled how she wouldn’t eat but would drink four glasses of wine before four o’clock in the afternoon. One the one hand, I’m grateful Lily is still here because it proves that substance abusers can overcome their demons. But on the other hand, I think it can come off as distasteful when someone dies and a person mentions how her friends are glad it wasn’t her. Maybe this is just a hot-button topic that it’s difficult to sound sensitive about, though. [The Sun UK]Want to contact the writer of this post? {encode=”jessica@thefrisky.com” title=”Email her”}!
