Adele has said that watching the tragic decline of Amy Winehouse left her frightened of fame.
The 27 year old singer , who has just smashed the record for first-week album sales has now revealed that troubled Amy’s death in 2011 at the same age drove home the dangers of living in the spotlight.
“People think I hate being famous. I don’t. I’m really frightened of it.
“Watching Amy deteriorate is one of the reasons I’m a bit frightened. We were all very entertained by her being a mess.I was f****** sad about it but if someone showed me a picture of her looking bad, I’d look at it. That level of attention is frightening.”
