London: In what was the last interview she gave before she died, Amy Winehouse admitted she was quite a shy girl, who always fought nerves before a performance.
The interview took place in March when the ‘Back to Black’ singer was recording a duet with legendary crooner Tony Bennett in Abbey Road studios for a version of the classic ‘Body And Soul’.
She was asked if it felt good to be back in the studio, and she answered in the affirmative.
“It’s good to be in the studio with Tony. That’s the only reason I’m here,” the Telegraph quoted her as saying.
Winehouse went on to admit that she was her own critic, and quite a shy girl.
“I’m my own worst critic and if I don’t pull off what I think I wanted to do in my head, then I won’t be a happy girl,” she stated.
“I’m not a natural born performer. I’m a natural singer, but I’m quite shy, really.
“You know what it’s like? I don’t mean to be sentimental or soppy but its a little bit like being in love, when you can’t eat, you’re restless, it’s like that. But then the minute you go on stage, everything’s OK. The minute you start singing,” she added.
