Amy Winehouse ‘longed to be a mum’
Washington: A close friend and collaborator of Amy Winehouse has revealed that the singer’s greatest ambition in life was to be a mother and have children, but she got caught up with “users” who took advantage of her.
Stefan Skarbek also revealed that the singer had a compassionate and motherly side, which no body ever focussed on and would have made an amazing mother had she not got involved with moot people like her ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, who used her.
“She was inherently nurturing, she was a Jewish grandma. Last time I saw her she made me chicken soup ‘cause I had a little cold. She probably hadn’t slept for four days and she was still making me soup and singing me songs and all that,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.
“Naturally, she was a caring, mothering person. And then her persona became an out-of-control rock star, but really she just wanted to hug and be hugged and be loved. She had a lot of that going on and she was surrounded by some pretty dodgy people at times and a lot of using people. And I think that it became hard. I think she started to ignore her maternal instinct and at times her caring side and she became her own caricature. She wanted to have a family, she wanted to be a mom, all those things,” he added.
