Amy Winehouse says she has been clean for a year and in this new photo shoot, her first in three years, Amy is looking healthier and happier in life.
Sure, she still hits up her favorite watering holes in Camden, but she claims she’s kicked drugs for good after seeing a photo of herself that opened her eyes to the state she was in. Amy Winehouse told Look magazine: “I’ve finally escaped from hell. Before I came out here I looked at a photo of myself in the paper and was horrified. My skin was a spotty mess and I was so pale and skinny. I thought: ‘Girl, you’ve got to sort yourself out or you’ll be dead soon.’”
Her skin has cleared up, she’s put on a little weight, and her eyes have a sparkle once again. Amy is hoping to revive her career, but while performing in Dubai she was booed off stage after suffering what her people called “technical difficulties.”
Judging from her performance though, (which you can find on YouTube) she was literally bored to tears. Checking her nails, twirling her hair, and was generally disconnected from the whole thing.
Was she high? Don’t know, but she certainly doesn’t have that zest that she used to when she’d perform, back before the “Blake” and “Back to Black” days. She was truly an amazing live performer back in the day. Amy Winehouse does look better these days though, so she’s doing something right.
