Bryan Adams Says He ‘Tried To Help’ Amy Winehouse


Bryan Adams has revealed that he “tried to help” Amy Winehouse during her addiction struggles.

In a recent interview with the Sunday Times, the ‘Summer Of 69’ singer spoke about his relationships with the late singer Winehouse, as well as Princess Diana.

According to Adams, he flew Amy Winehouse over to his villa in Mustique, a Caribbean island in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, in an attempt to get the singer to reach sobriety in 2007.

“got to come from within”

It was reported that Bryan Adams had encouraged Amy Winehouse to eat vegan food, as well as drink carrot and beetroot juice, which she was not so keen on.

“I invited her to spend the holidays with my family”, Adams revealed.

He also added that he “tried to help her but, you know, it’s got to come from within”.

“I really don’t know what happened with Amy and it is so sad because she was so, so talented and I so admired her individuality massively. But did I make a difference? I don’t know”, he added.

Amy Winehouse sadly died from alcohol poisoning in 2011.

Last October, it emerged that Winehouse’s track ‘Back To Black’ had reached one billion views on YouTube.

The song was the title track to the late singer’s Grammy winning album from that year. More on that story here.

Elsewhere in this interview with the Sunday Times, Bryan Adams also opened up about his relationship with the late Princess Diana.

The late princess reached out to Adams over a song he had written which seemed to heavily refer to Diana’s marriage to Prince Charles, now King Charles III.

The song was called ‘Diana’. Listen to it here.

Adams was invited to meet the Royal, so she could hear the song again, after she found the lyrics “funny”. 

Describing the friendship as “surreal”, Bryan Adams also added that the pair “had a lot of really, really good conversations”. Check out more on this here.
