Amy Winehouse Was 'Never Meant To Be 30'
Mum Janis also believes her daughter was 'bored with life'...
Amy Winehouse, has spoken out about her daughter as the anniversary of her death approaches.
In an interview with The Sun, the grieving mum revealed it was no surprise that her daughter - who would have turned 30 this year - didn't make it to the landmark birthday.
Janis explained: "When I think Amy would have been 30 this year, it doesn't feel right. I'm not saying I always foresaw this but I wasn't surprised.
"I couldn't see Amy as an older person. She was this young girl who exploded into the world like a firecracker and then it was, 'Okay, I'm done - I'm off'."
She added: "Amy was never meant to be 30."
Her mum - who suffers from multiple sclerosis - said: "I lie in the bath and listen to music, cry most days and think of Amy. What I miss most is her hugging and kissing me. She was always telling me she adored me.
Remembering her daughter, Janis said: "Amy was getting there. She had kicked the drugs but I also know she was bored - bored with doing the same gigs and same music.
"I would definitely say Amy was bored with life. I believe in life after death and that when Amy passed she probably met with her grandma, who said to her, 'You see, I told you this would happen! I told you to stop your mad way of life'.
"And Amy probably said: 'Oops, I didn't mean to do that'. I think she surprised herself. She probably thought she was immortal."
The Back To Black singer passed away at the age of 27 on July 23 two years ago. In May it was revealed that a life-sized bronze statue would be erected at Camden's Roundhouse as a tribute to the singer.
