Washington (ANI): Popstar Lily Allen has spoken in defense of Amy Winehouse, insisting there is a "clever and witty" side to the singer that the public fails to see. Lily said that the singer might be battling her drug addiction but can hold herself together.
"I know Amy Winehouse very well and she is very different to what people portray her as being," Contactmusic quoted Lily, as saying. "Yes, she does get out of her mind on drugs sometimes, but she is also a very clever, intelligent, witty, funny person who can hold it together. You just don't see that side. She gets a really hard time," Lily added.
Lily did not hesitate to admit she and Winehouse are one of the two female celebrities, who are mainly targeted by the British media.
"I mean, there aren't that many people with whom the press concentrate on their personality so much," Lily said. "I think in the UK, as far as females go, it's mainly me and her that get that treatment. She gets it more than I do. But I don't see it that much with other people," she added.
