Amy Winehouse's Mom Says She Never Thought Her Daughter Would Live Past 30!

This month marks the two year anniversary of Amy Winehouse's tragic death. At only 27, Amy's passing came as a shock to many of her fans.

But Amy's still VERY heartbroken mother is saying she always knew her troubled daughter was destined to die young! Janis Winehouse recently admitted:

"I couldn’t see Amy as an older person. She was this young girl who exploded into the world like a firecracker and then it was, ‘OK, I’m done — I’m off’. Amy was never meant to be 30.”

Amy's death in 2011 was eventually ruled an accidental alcohol poisoning. When someone so talented dies so young, we have to wonder what lead to her downfall? Amy's mom however says she can't even remember when the singing sensation's problems got out of control. She explained:

"I don’t believe there was any one point where you’d say, ‘This is where things started to go wrong for Amy’. Eventually I stopped lying awake at night worrying and accepted that I couldn’t do anything."

Our hearts continue to go out to the Winehouse family, who now dedicate much of their time to the Amy Winehouse Foundation - an organization aimed at preventing drug and alcohol abuse.

We miss you Amy!

    I'm still sad Amy is no longer here. She may of had problems, but she was a real artist with a had a genuine heart. She had more talent than any of the pop stars out now — combined.

    Re: Office Drone – Agree. She was an incredibly talented shooting star who lived and thrived in a hard and fast world, for a while. Amy would probably be the first one to hug her parents from the ether, thank them for all their love, and tell them her choices were hers, and not to ever blame themselves. Artists have that kind of awareness.

    All irresponsible behavior! You don't do what she did to your parents, and you don't abdicate responsibility when you are the parent. There is nothing cool, interesting or spiritual about dying at 27. It's a waste. Pure and simple.

    We choose our path before we come here. This was her path - it's interesting that her parents "knew" it too.

    Re: Circling the Drain… – You're right there's not. As a mother of two I could never accept this. We all have free will. There is always a choice. But the possibility that it would end like this was always present for Amy.

    Re: Circling the Drain… – I hear you, but she did it to herself. Her mom didn't abdicate responsibility, because by saying "Eventually I stopped lying awake at night worrying and accepted that I couldn’t do anything" told me that she and probably her husband spent years trying to, but to no avail. Once a kid has flown the nest, you can't control what they do 24/7 when they're performing all over the place. Some kids just don't listen anyway.

    What made Amy so amazing was her troubles, as much as im sad at her passing what made her so fucking good was what killed her.

    Amy was a brilliant artist who's work will survive the test of time. She reminds me of Janis Joplin who was another mega talent whose flame was extinguished way too early by the disease of addiction. Those who refer to Amy's actions as irresponsible behavior know nothing about addiction. At some point the disease takes control and many cannot make their way back. There were many before them and there are many to come. All we can do is enjoy what they have given us.

    I just repurchased both Frank n Back to Black. It's still crazy that she's been gone. I was in denial when the news broke because I was awaiting her return… She's in a better place, miss u Amy.
