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] Keep reading »

Amy Winehouse Lives On … Through Fred Perry

Singer Any money Winehouse would have made will go right to her newly-established foundation. “Amy’s royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon-to-be-established Amy Winehouse​ Foundation. Fred Perry will also make a seasonal donation to the Foundation,” said a statement from the company. Amy’s father Mitch, who just can’t keep his face out of the public eye, also released a statement on the collection. “When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue … Amy loved working on both collections, and would want them to be made available. All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name.”

So, at least something good will come out of Winehouse’s work with Perry, and fans will get a couple of last opportunities to enjoy a piece of her creative output. [Huffington Post]

Amy Winehouse: Did Alcohol Withdrawal Kill Her?

As Amy Winehouse‘s album Back to Black climbs back onto the charts and whispers begin about a treasure trove of unreleased songs, Winehouse’s family has a hunch about what we might find in her toxicology report—that she died from alcohol withdrawal. They believe that laying off the alcohol cold turkey may be what caused Winehouse’s sudden death last weekend at age 27. A source close to the family explains, “[Amy's father Mitch] said doctors had told Amy to gradually reduce her intake of alcohol and to avoid bingeing at all costs. Amy told him she couldn’t do that. It was all or nothing and she gave up completely. Mitch said the shock of giving up, after everything she had been through over a bad few years, was just too much for her to take. Abstinence gave her body such a fright, they thought it was eventually the cause of her death.”

So what exactly is alcohol withdrawal? And can it kill someone? Keep reading »
