adele opens up about amy winehouse

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.

    Who the fuck are you referring to when you say we?

    yeah perez, i think that quote was inspired by lyrics from the song from "frank", amy's first cd - the song about her dead bird. can't remember the name of the song.

    Ya Know…I was just talking with a friend of mind the other day about artists we'd like to see work together and these two where my first picks! Could you just imagine these two on the same track together??!! Heavenly Music Bliss it would have been! Amy you will be so very missed by your fans. Those who loved you didnt think your music was "just cool". You touched the very center of our souls with that voice that can only be described as "Timeless Infectious Tranquility" God Bless You and all those whom even in your own torment you've pulled from the depths of sorrow with your angelic voice. Rest Well Sweet Girl!!

    Fuck she's fat. I can just see Adele going the way of Mama Cass and choking on ham sandwich in the middle of some crazy midnight food binge. Fat unfuckable hippo she. LolZ!

    Seriously one of the sweetest and kindest things you could say about anyone. Adele is such a breath of fresh air in this world.

    I honestly don't even think you know that those words are Amy's very own. Did you even listen to Frank? It's "ava flies in paradise"; lyrics, not just words. Adele's tribute is beautiful, and well said. And after showing you know little to nothing about Amy's work, I'm doubting the sincerity of your own 'closeness' to Amy.

    Good on ya Adele. Well said.
