"I know Amy Winehouse very well. And she is very different to what people portray her as being. Yes, she does get out of her mind on drugs sometimes, but she is also a very clever, intelligent, witty, funny person who can hold it together. You just don't see that side. She gets a really hard time," she says with no little sympathy.

"I mean, there aren't that many people with whom the press concentrate on their personality so much. I think in the UK, as far as females go, it's mainly me and her that get that treatment. She gets it more than I do. But I don't see it that much with other people."

I like Lily's stuff but she should just quit it. Amy clearly is the person to talk about to get press coverage, uh?

I didn't expect Lily to say nice things, I mean, after all the crap I heard she's talked about others, this is nice to hear.

id say she would probably have been asked about amy. its people like kings of leon and john lydon who would bring her up to get attention.
i love lily almost as much as i do amy, and as you can probably tell from my sig i cant wait for her new album either!

"You just don't see that side."
I do.

Nice to hear.
And I go back to... I go back to us.


Bruised, battered and desparate for a fag she may be, but Amy is our 21st Century Piaf: flawed yet fabulous, tormented yet towering. Think of her this way and hope that the still remarkably young woman under the eyeliner thinks that way too. - Jude Rogers, The Word

I'm not a big fan of Lily but good for her, and I agree. There is much more to Amy than the tabloid caricature. To be honest though, it's not just Amy - the press are very cruel and one-sided towards a lot of people. It's just that the more exceptional a person is, the more coverage, good and bad, they will get.

Not a fan. Wasn't she talking mad shit about Amy a while back?

i'm a big lily fan, and would have known if she said something negative about amy. she did once post a blog saying she felt fat, ugly and shitter than winehouse. maybe you got confused with that, someone on here a while back thought she was saying amy is shit...

Am I the only one who found that Elton thing absolutly hilarious? ? hahah

Lilly is well cool, not as cool as Amy (when she wasnt a crackhead) but still brilliant! Musicall and personality wise .
