Adele Pays Tribute to Amy Winehouse

by at . Comments

Young British singer Adele, whose album 21 is currently enjoying widespread critical and commercial success, has paid tribute to the late Amy Winehouse.

Adele, like Amy, attended London’s BRIT performing arts school, says the singer, who was found dead Saturday “paved the way for artists like me."

While Winehouse single-handedly "got people excited about British music again,” Adele doesn't think she “ever realised just how brilliant she was.”

Adele's statement, headlined “AMY FLIES IN PARADISE X,” appears below:

“not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it. with no fuss and no compromise. but she knew what she was capable of and didn’t even need to try."

"if she wanted to do something she would and if she didn’t she’d say f— off. it came easy to her and that’s why we all loved her so much."

"we believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about british music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing."

"i don’t think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming. although im incredibly sad about Amy passing im also reminded of how immensely proud of her i am as well."

"so grateful to be inspired by her. Amy flies in paradise xx”

Amen. Here's a clip from 2008, in which Adele and Amy take the stage together alongside Winehouse's acclaimed producer Mark Ronson:

Winehouse, whose autopsy results have yet to reveal a conclusive cause of death, will be laid to rest at a funeral service this afternoon.

Adele pays tribute to Amy Whinehouse by snorting an eight ball, followed by smoking some crack, followed by shooting up some H. PS - Why is it that the hypocrites come out in full bloom once some idiot overdoses? Same thing happened with wacko Jacko. I guess when Casey Anthony overdoses all of the singers will tribute her as well?
