Amy Winehouse, the British singer with the smoky voice and Cleopatra eyes (Is it that obvious that I’m smitten?) has talked openly about her “morbid curiosity,” which has in the past, led to her experimenting with inflicting pain upon herself, just to see what it felt like.
She says, “It’s a funny thing, a morbid curiosity. I’m talking about when I was nine. What does that feel like? ‘Ow, that f**king hurt.’ “It’s probably the worst thing I’ve ever done.”
Winehouse also admitted to British magazine Q, that she has inflicted physical harm upon her person in the past, as a result of depression.
She adds, “Not punching myself in the face, but slapping. “I drank a whole bottle of champagne and then just got depressed. I didn’t feel like I looked good. And I’m quite self-destructive when I’m drunk.”
Girl, I’m on your MySpace. Granted, I’m not in your top eight (but who keeps track of that stuff, really *nervous laughter*), but still, you can message when you’re feeling down and maybe we could go out for a grilled cheese and ice cream. I have yet to find a situation which couldn’t be remedied by either one of those items–unless you’re lactose intolerant, in which case you might just be SOL.
