Lily Allen on Amy Winehouse: 'I wish she was still here, she wouldn't stand for any of this'
'Air Balloon' songstress Lily Allen has revealed that she really misses the late Amy Winehouse and she knows that the 'Back To Black' sensation wouldn't stand for people saying that together they have changed the face of music for women.
During a new interview with Spotify, Allen admitted that she knows how outspoken Winehouse could really be and thinks she would have put reporters in their place for suggesting they made some kind of monumental change in music for female artists:
"I wish Amy Winehouse was still here. I really do. I miss her a lot, I’ve got to be honest. She wouldn’t stand for any of this. 'You’re fackin' havin a laugh!' So sad. People sometimes say [adopts posh voice] 'Oh, Lily changed the face of music for women in this decade'. And it’s like, well, Ms. Dynamite did quite well before me and Amy, even though we’re given the accolade of paving the way for females in music. And also, no we didn’t, so what are you talking about?"
Earlier this month, Allen told The Telegraph that Winehouse was 'trapped': “She was not in a great place when we knew each other, so I don't feel I knew Amy; I knew a version of Amy. She couldn't do anything or go anywhere without there being a frenzy; and she was all about life and enjoying herself and socialising, and when that's taken away from you… she was a prisoner.”
