British singer Lily Allen said that she used to party with her pal Amy Winehouse and that things could have gone down the wrong roads for her, but that she pulled back and got her shit together. Essentially, Allen acknowledged that she could have met the same fate as her late friend, who died on July 23 at age 27.
"I've had nights out with Amy and know exactly what used to go on. It's so easy to get caught up in that madness… I've been strong enough to walk away," the pregnant and newly married Allen said.
She also admitted that news of Winehouse's death spread, her friends texted her, almost as though they were acknowledging that they knew she was on the wrong path and got off of it, and were thankful for that shift. "When Amy died, I got several texts from friends saying they were really glad I was still here, that I hadn't died too," Allen said.
The cause of Winehouse's death has not been determined yet. There were no illegal drugs in her system but alcohol was detected.
