Amy Winehouse’s mother is relieved her daughter did not attend the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles – because it would have been “too much” for the troubled star.
Winehouse scooped five awards at Sunday’s ceremony and after a string of Visa problems, decided to perform via satellite link-up from London rather than flying to the US.
The Back to Black hitmaker is currently being treated at a rehab clinic in a bid to kick her drug demons but took time out to get involved with the Grammys.
And her mother Janice is pleased organisers allowed her to participate from the U.K. as the trip to America would have been an enormous strain.
“I think it would have been too much for her because all of the travelling and flying there, I mean seeing what the Grammys was like … we could see it live from there and I thought if Amy were there, she’d be lost in it, she’d be a little girl lost in it,” she said.
But she insists the stay in rehab is working as the 24-year-old is almost back to full health.
She added: “As you saw, she looks good and it’s a case of she’s on the road, and that’s what it’s about, she’s on the road to recovery. It’s Amy coming back, she’s definitely on the way back.”
