Mitch Winehouse: "I Never Said GaGa Will Play Amy"
Her father has explained comments he made about Lady G portraying Amy...
Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has cleared up reports suggesting Lady GaGa will play his daughter in a biopic.
Over the weekend, it was reported that the former cabbie had backed GaGa to portray the Back To Black hitmaker if a film about Amy was to ever be made.
The Sunday Mirror quoted Mitch as saying: "I have heard that Lady GaGa is keen to play Amy in a film."
"I don't know what her English accent is like but it's not just an English accent she would have to perfect - it's an English-Cockney-Jewish accent so she better start practising now. But she would be great."
However, Winehouse has since explained his comments on Twitter, telling his followers: "I never said Lady GaGa will play Amy in film. Also Amy's room not a shrine. Wot a load of rubbish. Mitch (sic)."
A spokesperson for Mitch also added to Entertainment Weekly that the tragic singer's family are open to the idea of a biopic about their daughter, but only by ones they know "would tell the truth."
Winehouse's former boyfriend Reg Traviss recently revealed that he's turned down offers to direct a movie about Amy's life, saying he would be "too close" to the project.
