We always thought there was a tragic comedy to the Amy Winehouse saga of the past couple of years, and even her family agrees. Amy’s brother Alex is now speaking of the possibility of her drug, drink, divorce and sometimes singing-filled career being turned into a stage musical.
“Amy is much better. I think one day there could be a musical of Amy’s life. You just don’t ever know how far things can go these days,” he said.
We can’t see it quite packing in the family crowds like Billy Elliott but we actually reckon this could be quite brilliant. It’s got all the elements – the talented but flawed heroine who can’t give up her love for the evil villain Blake Incarcerated! To the despair of her salt of the earth dad Mitch, she’s sucked into the grimy underworld of Camden boozers and crack dens – only to be saved by the wisdom of concerned bloggers and perhaps a cute island kid in St Lucia! Er, or something like that. We’d totally see it. [Photo: Getty Images]
