Amy is following Billie Holiday's footsteps, Teese
Washington (ANI): Queen of Burlesque Dita Von Teese has revealed that the pop star Amy Winehouse once played a private gig for - but she was left troubled by the singer's angst. The model said that she once paid a visit to Winehouse's London home for an intimate two-hour show and was impressed with what she heard.
"I will never forget the time I went to Amy's house and she sang and played guitar for me, my mother and sisters. She is our era's Billie Holiday," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying. However, the 35-year-old is concerned that the singer is following in the footsteps of Holiday, who died at 44 from cirrhosis of the liver.
"I listen to a lot of music from the 30s and 40s, but Amy Winehouse is the most important and interesting vocalist of the modern era. Unfortunately, it seems that she is also following in the same footsteps as Billie - with genuine angst, drama and drug addiction," Von Teese added.
