LONDON, (AFP):- Amy Winehouse may still be best known for her line: “They tried to make me go to rehab. But I said no, no, no.”
But 10 years after the British singer’s death at 27, her family and friends say it is time to stop defining her by her well-documented struggles with addiction and destructive relationships.
Winehouse’s parents have cooperated with a BBC documentary to air on the anniversary of her death on Friday, which her father Mitchell, known as Mitch, says gives a “more rounded image of Amy”.
The singer put her own experiences into original songs, such as “Back to Black” and “Rehab”, infused with jazz and soul influences and developed a distinctive personal style with a towering beehive hairdo and tattoos.
But her performances grew more erratic due to drug and alcohol use while tabloids published stories calling her “Amy Decline-house” or “wino”.
She died from alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011.
Narrated by her mother Janis Winehouse-Collins and titled “Reclaiming Amy”, the documentary to air on BBC2 features interviews with long-standing friends, including one, Catriona Gourley, who reveals she had a romantic relationship with Winehouse.
“You think you know my daughter — the drugs, the addiction, the destructive relationships — but there was so much more,” her mother says in the voiceover.
