Amy Winehouse’s Mom Defends Her

Amy Winehouse’s family is making me tired. Can’t they all just go through her rep and stop the shenanigans? Janis let Amy’s dad Mitch have a break from the press, and spent her time trying to convince us that Amy is not a user:

“The truth is that Amy ended up in hospital this week because she mixed up the medication she’s taking to help her come off drugs. She took a wrong tablet.

I really don’t think she’s using now. Being diagnosed with the early stage of emphysema was a real jolt to her. A bit of a wake-up call. Mind you, I think she does have the odd sneaky cigarette. Give her a break, she’s not a miracle worker.”

That helpful recovery attitude sounds a lot like denial to me.
