Amy Winehouse: Fe-INFp or SLE-Ti

page 5 (Her Secret Love Letters To Blake): They were the Sid and Nancy of our times and, like him or loathe him, there’s no doubt Blake Fielder-Civil was one of Amy’s greatest loves. In the week before her death, Amy had a bust-up with her boyfriend Reg over the imprisoned Blake and Now’s discovered the truth behind that row.
‘Amy and Blake would send letters to each other, often three times a week,’ says a friend. ‘She loved the romance of sending letters instead of emails or Skypeing. Reg hated her addiction to him – it had even more pull than booze and drugs.
‘Amy was obsessed with the whole “my man’s inside” idea,’ adds our source. ‘After all, she used to have the tear drawn on her face. She got it done when he was first jailed. Lots of ex-cons used to get it done in the 60s and 70s. It used to represent murder but more recently it’s symbolised having a loved one locked up. She liked the whole idea of trying to survive on her own while her man was inside.’
Amy’s ex-flatmate Alex Foden confirms the pair never lost touch: ‘Those two loved each other with a passion. They were still in contact when she died. Blake always said they were like Sid and Nancy – when one went, the other would too. I fear for him now.’

page 13 (Tears For THAT Voice): Her voice was full of raw emotion. No one else sang like her.’

page 39 (Greedy Hangers-On): Loyal friends claim Amy was being ripped off by her drug dealers – and some of her hangers-on, who’d often tip off the paparazzi. ‘It was awful to see her being taken advantage of,’ says a pal. ‘These so-called mates would even go so far as to manufacture a kerfuffle with the paps to make it look like Amy was attacking them. It was dreadful, but Amy was so naive and trusting that you couldn’t tell her any different. I know for a fact that the arseholes she bought drugs from would automatically triple the price just because it was her. She didn’t have a bad bone in her body and thought others were the same.’

page 48 (THE AMY I Knew... BY ALEX FODEN): ‘Amy always told me she thought she’d die young and that she’d become part of the 27 Club. I think she almost needed to die as a legend. Although everyone around her knew it was going to happen, it was still a shock. I’ve been crying ever since I heard.
‘She was so modest. She’d never sing one of her own songs if someone asked her to in a bar – she just got embarrassed. And she never discussed her music. I think that’s because the lyrics were so personal and dark.
‘At the heart of it, Amy was a lovely, bubbly Jewish girl who wanted to be loved. She was incredibly clean and tidy at home and could be a real matriarch, looking after everyone and cooking for friends and family. Meatballs were her signature – they were fantastic.
‘All she wanted to be was a mum. If she and Blake had had a child, she’d still be here today. Once, before she went on stage in Zurich, she told Blake she thought she was pregnant. She was so happy. She sent a girl out to buy two pregnancy tests but when she did them, they came back negative.
‘She was heartbroken and went on stage that night a shell of a woman. She got slated for that gig. People said she was pulling drugs out of her beehive and sniffing them. But she wasn’t – she was actually crying and wiping her nose. Amy was an incredible, warm, wonderful human but, ultimately, also a fallible one.’

page 52 (AMY ON... RELIGION): ‘I’m not religious at all. I think faith is something that gives you strength. I believe in fate and I believe things happen for a reason, but I don’t think that there’s a higher power, necessarily. I believe in karma very much, though. There are so many rude people around and they’re the people who don’t have any real friends. And relationships with people – with your mum, your nan, your dog – are what you get the most happiness in life from. Apart from shoes and bags.’
