Lily Allen Opens Up About Amy Winehouse.

| Filed under: Lily AllenAmy WinehouseR.I.P.Sad Sad


We're glad that she's finally chosen to speak out about this.

She certainly has a very astute perspective to contribute to this unbelievable tragedy.

Lily Allen has finally opened up about her relationship with her friend and contemporary, Amy Winehouse, and has offered some insight into the late singer's life and personal struggles.

She explains:

"[It's] Really sad. I also felt that she'd become such a cartoon character of herself. Her death almost didn't feel real because her life had virtually been lived in the newspapers near the end. I've had nights out with Amy and I know exactly what used to go on. I also spent time with her at her house in Camden. Not the one she died in, the one before. I felt very trapped by the presence of 40 paparazzi guys hysterical outside her front door. I could totally see why she didn't want to leave her house. It seemed more appealing to stay in and take heroin. Why would anyone want that chaos in their life? It's not something anyone chooses. Amy struggled. She wanted a real life. She wanted to go down to the pub and she couldn't. When Amy died, I got several texts from friends saying they were really glad I was still here. That I hadn't died too. It's so easy to get caught up in that madness and I count my lucky stars I've been strong enough to walk away."

Wow. Very lucky, indeed.

We're certainly happy to hear that Lily took the proper measures to get herself out of such a destructive lifestyle.

It's sad that sometimes it takes an event like this to give some the wake-up call that they desperately need, and we sincerely hope that the loss of Amy can do that for those heading down a similar path.

Very touching words, Lily. We are truly so sorry for your loss.

May Amy have the peace now that she didn't have while she was living.

    Definitely, 7897. Several years back, Lily Allen made all sorts of nasty comments about Amy. She said that "That's not Amy's real voice, just listen to some of her older songs." She also publicly mocked her onstage, cracking jokes about drinking and doing drugs. Lily is just a dumb jealous bitch because Amy was selling FAR more albums than her. Apparently, they put their row behind them and became friendly, although I don't know why. Anyway, do a bit of Googling and you'll find all the nasty, snarky things Lily said about Amy.

    I've been reading Perez for years and it saddens me that this blog as well as so many other entertainment news sources were ruthless with Amy Winehouse when she was alive. Pre - anti bully days Perez was one of the biggest bullies out there and quite often Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse were the targets. No blogger, or news caster has ever said Amy/ Winehouse Family we are sorry for being so cold hearted - no one ever takes responsibility for spewing harshness onto these people. Its just so blatantly hypocritical. I'm not a celeb worshiper but when someone is hurting famous or not at some point the right thing to do is be kind not kick a person while they are down - only to offer condolences when something awful happens.
