Amy Winehouse 'drug-free for three years'
Wednesday 06 October 2010
Singer Amy Winehouse has claimed she has been drug-free for three years.
The troubled star says she managed to kick her dependency overnight, claiming: "I literally woke up one day and was like 'I don't want to do this any more'."
Winehouse - still to release a follow-up to 2006 album Back To Black - told Glamour magazine: "I'm much healthier now. I used to use drugs and I haven't used drugs in almost three years. It's not a hard thing."
Her drug use led to erratic behaviour and she has often been in hospital over the past few years.
However the singer's version does not tally with her father Mitch's account of how long she has been off drugs when he gave evidence to MPs.
Appearing before the Commons Home Affairs committee just under a year ago, he said his daughter had been drug-free for only a year.
In her interview with Glamour, Winehouse also talks about how her thoughts have turned to children.
"I'm of the age when you start thinking about it - not seriously - but you start thinking about having kids. Although I'm not going to be getting pregnant in the next nine months."
