Amy Winehouse London, July 26 (IANS) Amy Winehouse had predicted she would diet at the age of 27.

The “Rehab” singer - who passed away at her home in Camden, north London, Saturday - believed she would become one of a number of music stars in the “27 Club”, which includes Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin, reports

Friends revealed she also had an “obsessive” personality when it came to drugs, alcohol and food.

Her friend Alex Foden, who once lived with the musician, said: “Unfortunately, Amy had a very obsessive personality. She did everything to extremes, especially when it came to food and drugs. She loved food.”

“But she’d either have binges - eating loads before running up to the toilet and getting rid of it all again - or she’d go up to four or five days without eating, surviving on alcohol, drugs and sweets.”

“Amy always told me she thought she would die young and that she knew she’d become part of the ‘27 Club’,” he said.
