“I want people to hear my voice and just… forget their troubles for five minutes.”
Amy Winehouse (at age 13)

“Madonna is an old lady. She should get a nice band, just stand in front of them and sing.”
Amy Winehouse in Look Magazine, May 2011
In the interview:
“I’ve finally escaped from hell. Before I came out here I looked at a photo of myself in the paper and was horrified. My skin was a spotty mess and I was so pale and skinny. I thought: “Girl, you’ve got to sort yourself out or you’ll be dead soon.”
You Know I’m No Good
I cheated myself,
Like I knew I would,
I told you I was trouble,
You know that I’m no good
“My justification is that most people my age spend a lot of time thinking about what they’re going to do for the next five or ten years. The time they spend thinking about their life, I just spend drinking.”
"I say things in songs that i wouldn’t even admit to myself"
"I don't ever want to do anything mediocre. I hear the music in the charts and I don't mean to be rude, but those people have no soul. Learning from music is like eating a meal - you have to pace yourself. You can't take everything from it all at once. I want to be different, definitely. I'm not a one trick pony. I'm at least a five-trick pony."
...and finally a picture of a healthy looking Amy, days before the Saturday of her death.
