This Ol Winehouse: Last Orders For Amy’s Alma Mater

Looking like a cross between Bette Midler (when thin) and Alma Cogan (when alive), Winehouse is met by the line: “Lots of people talk about your drinking…”

“Yes,” replies Winehouse, “bored people.”

Instead of that boring chat, Winehouse tells us that when she goes “training” she is “lovely to be around”.

Training for popstars, one imagines, consists of putting in the hard yards between bars and drug dens. But Winehouse is a rebel of her age and for her training means going to the gym. To exercise.

“But then there’s the other days like I had to go to work and I said to my manager’s assistant: ‘Can you get me some mini Jack Daniel’s please, I just want three or four then I’ll be sweet as a nut.’”

Not the litre bottle? Right… Can we talk about..?

“I wasn’t even crying, I was like: ‘Listen, if you want to have a nice day, please got me some alcohol.’ By two bottles done I was like yes!”

Back to your life. There was the reha..

“I’ve had phases in my life where I wake up and all I want to do is drink alcohol, but that was…”

But aside from the drinking there’s…

“Normal people spend time thinking, what am I going to do with my life? I spend time drinking.”

And talking about drinking…
