Such a thoughtful, heartfelt tribute.
Today, Adele opened up about Amy Winehouse's death on her blog, and we were truly touched by everything she had to say.
Here are Adele's words about Amy:
not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it. with no fuss and no compromise. but she knew what she was capable of and didn’t even need to try. if she wanted to do something she would and if she didn’t she’d say fuck off. it came easy to her and that’s why we all loved her so much. we believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about british music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing. i don’t think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming. although im incredibly sad about Amy passing im also reminded of how immensely proud of her i am as well. and grateful to be inspired by her. Amy flies in paradise xx
We are moved by this, Adele. We only wish Amy were around to hear it.
"Amy flies in paradise"…those words will stick with us.
