Despite Amy Winehouse's untimely death in 2011, we're still learning new information about the iconic singer.
In the memoir Loving Amy by Amy's mom Janis Winehouse, there's a lot of speculation about her health prior to becoming famous. While it's no secret Winehouse was a bit of a wild child and drug abuser while growing up in England, Janis theorizes there was more to her daughter's larger than life personality.

According to J.W., Amy could have suffered from Tourettes Syndrome. The mom explained:
"She could well have been almost Tourette's, where she would just shout things out. We just do not know."
Hmm, how interesting. It's unfortunate we'll never know the full truth about Winehouse's alleged condition.
Despite A.W.'s vocal and physical tics, Janis couldn't say better things about her daughter as a creative person.
The momma gushed:
Life isn't always so easy growing up in the spotlight.
We've watched Justin Bieber mature (?) through every up and down in the public eye since he was a preteen. While that's part of the deal when pursuing a career in entertainment — it can definitely take its toll.

The Sorry singer shared:
"I just want people to know I'm human. I'm struggling just to get through the days. I think a lot of people are. You get lonely, you know, when you're on the road. People see the glam and the amazing stuff, but they don't know the other side. This life can rip you apart."
So much so, Selena Gomez' ex relates to the tragic story of the legendary Amy Winehouse:
"I watched the Amy Winehouse documentary [Amy] on the plane and I had tears in my eyes because I could see what the media was doing to her, how they were treating her. People thought it was funny to poke her when she was at rock bottom, to keep pushing her down until she had no more of herself. And that's what they were trying to do to me."
The Canada native — whose new album Purpose comes out on Friday — admitted that despite he's constantly surrounded by attention, he often feels alone:
He sure is helping us stock up on new music before his hiatus.
We were slightly heartbroken last week when Sam Smith announced that he would be taking a break from the entertainment industry following his Spectre publicity tour.
Luckily, it seems like the 23-year-old knows how difficult that'll be for all of us, because not only did he drop Drowning Shadows on Monday, but now he's covering Amy Winehouse staples as well!

Sammy stopped by BBC Radio 1 on Thursday to premiere Love is a Losing Game for Annie Mac… and it sounds like it was written specifically for his soulful voice.
Amy's lyrics paired with Sam's powerhouse vocals make for an absolutely beautiful track that will leave you in tears. Seriously.

We could get on board with this idea!
The music industry took a huge hit when we lost Amy Winehouse back in 2011.
Since then, we've gotten a bit more information about her life which involved quite a bit of drug use.

If it wasn't already clear, she certainly has good taste.
Adele is just two weeks away from releasing her third studio album, 25, and to gear up for what's going to be the biggest pop culture moment of the year, she's saying hello to practically every outlet!
In her most recent interview with Rolling Stone, the now-27-year-old comes clean — both literally and figuratively — as she takes off her makeup and opens up about her career being her hobby, not her life.

And while she claims that her three-year absence since she won an Oscar for Skyfall has left her out of the loop when it comes to what's current, her love for certain artists would certainly beg to differ.
