Amy Winehouse is one of my absolute favorites and we like her here at Evil Beet. She was living a destructive life but she seemed to be getting back into a healthy place, so when she died, I was honestly shocked. I thought she was getting better. They ruled that she died of alcoholism. With so much alcohol in her system, withdrawing the way she did was deadly. However, her brother is saying that what really killed her was bulimia. From DNAIndia:
Amy Winehouse’s older brother Alex has claimed that it was an eating disorder and not her addictions that killed the singer two years ago.
In his first full-length interview, the 33-year-old told the Observer Magazine that his sister’s long battle with bulimia “left her weaker, and more susceptible,” the Guardian reported.
He said that she would have died eventually, the way she was going, but what really killed her was the bulimia.[…] He revealed that Amy had developed bulimia in her late teens and had never shaken off the illness.
I see his point.
Excuse me though, Observer, or wherever this come from, but “never shaken off the illness”? Shaken off? Come on now. It’s not something you can shake off.
I miss Amy.
