Leona Lewis vows not to end up like Amy WinehouseJune 16th, 2008 - 11:51 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jun 16 (ANI): Leona Lewis has vowed that she will not end up like troubled English singer Amy Winehouse.
The English singer and songwriter admitted that she admires 24-year-old Winehouses musical talents, but would definitely avoid the pitfalls of fame.
According to 23-year-old Lewis, having a family that is strong and supportive is one way of helping her keep her feet on the ground.
Amy is so talented. But a performers privacy is taken away. The media are always there, Daily Star quoted her as saying.
You cant make your mistakes in private. I have the advantage of a great support structure.
I get honest opinions from family and friends.
They arent always telling me what I want to hear, but the truth helps keep my head straight, she said.
The one thing that the Bleeding Love singer is happy about, as she has revealed to Americas Parade magazine, is to be compared to chart legends Whitney Houston, 44, and Mariah Carey, 38.
Its exceedingly gratifying because theyre so great, she added. (ANI)
