Amy Winehouse’s former manager would rather the troubled star beat her alleged drug addiction before releasing another record.
Pop supremo Nick Godwyn signed Winehouse to 19 Management when she was just 16.
And Godwyn thinks it is time for the Rehab hitmaker to have a career break, so she can concentrate on her personal life.
He said: “What is happening now is not very pleasant for anybody to watch. I feel she seems to be sad. People talk about wasted talent, but I don’t look at it like that. If Amy never made another record again it would be sad, but it’s less about the music for me and more about, ‘this is a human being that maybe isn’t very happy’.”
And Godwyn believes the 24-year-old has always lived an unhappy life.
He added: “There were signs, even back then, that she wasn’t happy. You can listen to the words of her songs and there aren’t many happy, upbeat love songs.And I think that’s a reflection of where she is. She only writes songs from personal experience. There are some beautiful songs which, lyrically, are fascinating. But some of them are quite sad.”
