Allen reflects on the late Amy Winehouse...
Speaking to The Telegraph, Lily Allen revealed that she is dedicating her new album, Sheezus to the late Amy Winehouse. Allen said the two were acquaintances and not close friends and talked about her life prior to her death in 2011.
Allen stated: "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. What she had to deal with was 10 times anything I had to deal with. She'd sold a hell of a lot more albums than me, and there was a lot more interest in her. There were people outside her home 24 hours a day, seven days a week. I know what that was like on a much smaller level, and I felt trapped. She couldn't do anything or go anywhere without there being a frenzy; and she was all about life and enjoying herself and socializing, and when that's taken away from you… she was a prisoner."
