Amy Winehouse’s mother Janis wrote an open letter to the troubled singer in News of the World, telling the 24-year-old: “We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped— unless you come to us—anything we tried would be in vain.” Janis added, “Early fame has overwhelmed you, it’s dizzied you and muddled your mind. For a moment, forget you’re a superstar. You’re also young and vulnerable. Remember you’re just an ordinary human being, no stronger than any of the rest of us. You think you’re strong enough to get through this on your own, darling, but you’re not. I want you back, and I’ll make you fitter and stronger. I’d like nothing better than to have you home and help you put on a bit of weight with some wholesome home cooking.” Read the entire letter here.
