Lily Allen "Could Have Died" Like Amy Winehouse
The Not Fair singer is glad she walked away from her demons, unlike Amy...
The Fear singer - who is expecting her first child with hubby Sam Cooper - claims she feels lucky to have escaped the troubles which plagued Winehouse through her 27 years.
Speaking of Amy's death, Lily told The Sun: "I've had nights out with Amy and know exactly what used to go on. It's so easy to get caught up in that madness. I've been strong enough to walk away."
"When Amy died, I got several texts from friends saying they were really glad I was still here, that I hadn't died too."
The 26-year old added: "Her death almost didn't seem real. Amy had become a cartoon character of herself."
Winehouse's father Mitch, who will be launching The Amy Winehouse Foundation next week, has also stated he is struggling to come to terms with his daughter's death - breaking down in tears on US TV.
Speaking to Piers Morgan on his CNN Tonight show, Mitch said: "She had so many qualities and so many frailties but she was a wonderful, wonderful girl, wonderful friend and all of the nonsense that was written about her over the last five or six years has all gone now.
The former cab driver then emotionally exclaimed: "I just wish she was here so we could give her a cuddle. She was full of love. Even for people who didn't deserve it."
