I, personally, love Amy's voice. She's a great singer and a very good songwriter. It's just depressing to see how far she had to go before she realized she needs help. Hopefully she will get the help she needs to rise above her addictions.
AMY WINEHOUSE has finally eaten her famous anti-rehab lyrics and checked into a retreat — in Essex.
The Back To Black singer was admitted to the exclusive £10,000-a-week Causeway on Monday after crunch talks with her family.
Amy always insisted rehab was for wimps and only needed the help of her taxi-driver dad Mitch to set her straight. But she finally shocked herself into getting help after last week overdosing on a cocktail of heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, the horse tranquilliser ketamine and booze.
Contrary to some reports she did not go for treatment in the US.
Instead I can reveal she and hubby Blake Fielder-Civil flew by helicopter to the remote clinic on an island off the Essex coastline.
Sources say Mitch threatened to “crucify” Blake after he confessed Amy had collapsed from “speedballing” — inhaling or injecting a mix of crack cocaine and heroin at the same time.
One close pal said: “Mitch had been warned about Blake but gave him the benefit of the doubt.
“He is furious with him now. If he could he would take Amy away from him.”
I reckon Amy has to turn her Back To Blake and go it alone.
With her amazing talent it would be devastating if she carried on letting him drag her down.
