Amy Winehouse mesmerized all of us by not only her voice, but also her look. She succeeded in to mix different music genres from soul to jazz. After her debut album Frank was released in 2003, she started to climb up the celebrity ladder. However, our joy did not last long and she passed away at the age of 27. It is no doubt that she will live forever in our hearts and we will keep listening to her songs.
Here are the quotes from the queen of music that reflect her inner world:
1.‘’Since I was 16, I’ve felt a black cloud hangs over me. Since then, I have taken pills for depression’’.
2.“I don’t think your ability to fight has anything to do with how big you are. It’s to do with how much anger is in you”.
3.“Truth is I’m a fucking romantic. I’m difficult but I promise I’m not boring”.
4.“Life happens. There is no point in being upset or down about things we can’t control or change.”
5.“I fall in love every day. Not with people but with situations”.
6.“I really started writing music to challenge myself to see what I could write”.
7.“I only write about stuff that’s happened to me… Stuff I can’t get past personally. Luckily, I’m quite self-destructive”.
8.“I’m my own worst critic, and if I don’t pull off what I think I wanted to do in my head, then I won’t be a happy girl’’.
9.‘’I know I’m talented, but I wasn’t put here to sing. I was put here to be a wife and a mum and look after my family. I love what I do, but it’s not where it begins and ends’’.
10.“I listen to music that is of our time and I just get angry.”
11.“I don’t listen to a lot of new stuff. I just like the old stuff. It’s all quite dramatic and atmospheric. You’d have an entire story in song. I never listen to, like, white music – I couldn’t sing you a Zeppelin or Floyd song’’.
12.“I’m not frightened of appearing vulnerable”.
13.“I want at least 5 kids. I want twins”.
14.“I do suffer from depression, I suppose. Which isn’t that unusual. You know, a lot of people do”.
15.“I don’t think I’m such an amazing person who needs to be written about”.
16.“My justification is that most people my age spend a lot of time thinking about what they’re going to do for the next five or ten years. The time they spend thinking about their life, I just spend drinking’’.
17.“I was hit by a car once on my bike, but I still rode home”.
