These pictures of Amy Winehouse walking around London on July 12th are reportedly the last pictures ever taken of her before her death on Saturday. And to be perfectly honest she looks better than I thought she would. She looks much healthier than she did at times over the years, like here or here or here, or topless at the beach here and here, or so high she had to wear a diaper here.
Not that this means she was clean of course. It’s still a million miles from how she looked before the drugs, and today Moby talked to the Hollywood Reporter about watching her at the Tubrog Festival on June 18th, which would end up being her final performance.
Making his way to the side of the stage while Winehouse was already on, Moby took in the troubling sight. “Amy was just standing there, swaying back and forth and mumbling occasionally,” he recalls. “The band were playing quietly and looking uncomfortable and the audience was looking on in disbelief.” He, too, could not believe his eyes.
“She was on stage for about 30 minutes, then she left and was lying down on a flight case backstage surrounded by some people,” Moby continues. “I was horrified.”
But don’t you dare jump to conclusions and assume she died because of drugs. She was a magical fairy spreading smiles and happiness wherever she went, and to sully her legacy of sunbeams with some crazy “drug” talk is really mean and completely baseless.
