Whoopi Goldberg urges Amy Winehouse to beat drink, drugs problemsMay 11th, 2009 - 2:48 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, May 11 (ANI): American actress Whoopi Goldberg has urged Rehab singer Amy Winehouse to fight her drink and drugs problems, warning her that her lifestyle will kill her if she continues.
Goldberg, 53, revealed her love for Winehouse’s music on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, and selected the singer’s ‘Me and Mr Jones’ track as it reminded her of the music of her childhood.
She even offered a message of support to Winehouse, who is currently recording her third album in St. Lucia.
“I love this girl, that talent is just so great. Amy, come on baby, you can do this,” Contactmusic quoted her as saying.
The actress then went on to talk about her own experiences with drugs, and revealed that she had experimented a lot when she was younger but forced herself to get clean.
“Heroin was a drug that took you to places that you had never been before. It was for me a really good learning time. I don’t recommend it to anybody because the rough part about it is it wants to stay with you and you want it because you find it is easier to live outside of life,” she said.
“For me, I like living. So it really came down this path pretty much: You are going to die, that’s a given fact,” she added. (ANI)
