Amy Winehouse seemed "out of it" just 24 hours before her sudden death, mom Janis Winehouse tells the Sunday Mirror, prompting her mother to believe her death "was only a matter of time." Nevertheless, the elder Winehouse says "her passing so suddenly still hasn’t hit me," recalling that the British singer told her "I love you, mum." “They are the words I will always treasure,” says Janis. “I’m glad I saw her when I did.”
Friends tell the Mirror that Winehouse had been drinking heavily, and possibly took a bad Ecstasy pill. “She has spent the last seven days on a massive bender and people were saying she’s going to drink herself to death," says one. Pal Kelly Osbourne, however, says the pair spoke Friday night for an hour, and “she seemed absolutely fine, I don’t understand how this could have happened." An official cause of death has not been released. Click for Russell Brand's touching tribute to Winehouse.
