Peter Doherty Talks Amy Winehouse

Archived Images Of The Late Amy Winehouse

Though she tragically died in 2011 due to alcohol intoxication, Amy Winehouse’s close friend and Kate Moss’ ex-Pete Doherty speaks of their history together in his new memoir, From Albion to Shangri-La.  Doherty, a drug-addict and singer of the Libertines, a British guitar band, has published a collection of his own journal excerpts from 2008-2013.

His confusing stream of consciousness definitely indicates a troubled and tormented soul.  On his relationship with Winehouse:

“The red tops were alleging that Amy and I were at it like rabid nymphomaniac dogs. The plot thickens… safe in the knowledge that that night was a… I was honestly able to defend myself, and sadly shook my head in pity and sadness that Blakey [Blake Fielder Civil, former husband of Amy Winehouse] should even for a second doubt my loyalty. Now then… after they divorced I still hadn’t even dreamed of upon the Winehouse making a move and yet it seemed that Blake was still threatening all manner of unspeakable acts upon my head, convinced as he was that I’d doinked his dearest ex-missus. Streuth! Now then at some point of course, particularly just after stage at V-Festival last year I had a too brief a jig of Humpty Dumpty with the Duchess and it all comes to a head now that they appear to be seeing each other again. He’s texting me thinly-veiled threats in his suitable state. Could turn nasty, nasty, nasty. Giving some big-house slag a back hander – probably two pence to bash me about like a plastic inflatable horses head. Possibly.”

His memoir was released today, and fans of the troubled Brit and late Winehouse might be curious to catch a rare glimpse of his private thoughts during this period?

Earlier this month, Doherty was quoted as saying:

“I would like to get rid of the damn drugs. It’s no longer fun. On the contrary, it’s just s**t and kills all my creativity. But it’s difficult to stop.

“My past life is a f***ing mess, a real mess.”

Hopefully he can get a hold of his demons at some point.

Autopsy Confirms Massive Overdose for Philip Seymour Hoffman

Philip Seymour Hoffman Dies Of Drug Overdose In NYC **FILE PHOTOS**

According to the NYC medical examiner, Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s official cause of death on February 2nd, was “acute mixed drug intoxication.’  TMZ reports that the drugs found in Hoffman’s system at the time of death were heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines, and amphetamines.

The much beloved Hunger Games actor, was found dead in his apartment with a needle still stuck in his arm.  He had attended rehab last May in order to prevent a major relapse (he had been sober for over 20 years prior to his death).  He had three children, ages 5, 7, and 10, with his longtime, estranged girlfriend, Mimi O’Donnell.

Four arrests were made related to Hoffman’s overdose, including Robert Vineberg, who was charged with felony heroin possession with an intent to sell.  Vineberg is a sax player for multiple famous artists including Mick Jagger, Amy Winehouse and David Bowie.

So sad.  Addiction is so sad and drugs are so scary.

Amy Winehouse’s Mother Didn’t Think She’d Live To See 30

Amy Winehouse's Mother Didn't Think She'd Live To See 30

Amy Winehouse’s mother Janis said that she didn’t think that the singer would ever make it to the age of 30-years-old.

Amy would have turned 30-years-old this year on September 14th, but two years after her death, her mother is speaking out about the late singer.

Janis revealed in a new interview, “When I think Amy would have been 30 this year, it doesn’t feel right. I’m not saying I always foresaw this but I wasn’t surprised.”

As you may recall, Amy passed away from alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011 at the young age of only 27-years-old. Unfortunately, she had a long history of abusing drugs and alcohol prior to her untimely death.

Janis added, “I couldn’t see Amy as an older person. She was this young girl who exploded into the world like a firecracker and then it was, ‘OK, I’m done — I’m off’. Amy was never meant to be 30.”

So sad. RIP Amy.
