Controversial singer Lady Gaga is all praise for soul singer Amy Winehouse, who died at her London home on July 23, saying that she changed pop music forever. She warned that her death is a lesson to the public not to 'kill the superstar'.
“ It's really devastating and I think it's a lesson to the world - don't kill the superstar. Take care of her. Take care of her soul," she was heard saying on US radio station Omaha 94.1.
Gaga revealed that she used to imitate Amy's trademark beehive style hairstyle and got mistaken for the singer. “I was nobody when she was first coming out. I had really dark hair and all the time on the street people would go, 'Amy!' And they would go, ''Back to Black.'' They'd scream at me. I loved her and I just remember feeling like I wasn't alone because she was so different and she was so special," she added.
The 27-year-old multiple Grammy Award winner died of suspected drug overdose on Saturday (July 23). However, the exact cause of her death is yet to be known, as the autopsy failed to give any result. Toxicology tests will be done, which will take about four weeks to get the result. Her mortal remains were laid to rest at a private funeral service yesterday.
