Winehouse was allegedly expelled at 14 for "not applying herself" and also for piercing her nose. Soon after, she began working for a living, including, at one time, as an entertainment journalist for the World Entertainment News Networkin addition to singing with local group the Bolsha Band. When he asked who the singer was, the manager told him he was not allowed to say.
Now we will be looking at the the comparisons as well as the friendship between Amy Winehouse and another beloved British soul singer, Adele Laurie Blue Adkins.
Now Adele and Amy Winehouse are probably the two most prominent British artists of the past 30 years.
Their second albums are the two best selling albums of the 21st century in the UK and both managed to enjoy record breaking success abroad, smashing records set by the likes of The Beatles and Madonna.
Dark eyeliner, dark clothes and a large beehive. Naturally all of these similarities have caused quite a few comparisons to pop up over the years. Two British music phenomenons, one obviously a bit more clean cut than the other one.
In real life Adele and Amy were actually very good friends. Neither Amy nor Adele were exactly the type to give interviews. Indeed both could almost be described as secretive.
Though there obviously has been a lot of media attention devoted to both of them that is not quite the same thing. The two also had a number of mutual friends such as the singer Lily Allen and obviously Mark Ronson who produced albums for both of them.
ZGU Adele would pay a number of tributes to her friend nonetheless on her own.
We believed every word she wrote and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blaze about the whole thing. Amy flies in Paradise xx. Its a joy for any fan of Amy to read and really sums her up as both a person and an artist better than anything else could.
Amy was very lucky to have a friend like Adele and clearly based on how much she thought of her, Adele was lucky to have a friend like Amy too. The stories of them being class mates are complete fabrication however. The two did attend the Brits School, but Amy was several years older than Adele and apparently the two did not even meet at school.
It was only years later after they had both become established singer songwriters that they became close. They came from an interview with Mark Ronson who knew both of them and were according to Ronson made up by the interviewer desperate to try and spice things up a bit.
Here was Ronsons angry retraction of the interview https: There really was nothing but love, affection and respect for one another as people and as artists. Sadly despite their strong friendship the two never recorded a song together.
They did once share the stage together, but sadly they did not perform a duet, they came on one after another. It was at the Brit Awards where they both performed with Mark Ronson.
However whilst Amy and Adele may have been anything but rivals, a rivalry still exists between their fans to some extent and some of the comparisons between them have been used to belittle the other one from time to time.
Depending on what you read, Adele is either a low rent Amy Winehouse who is only successful because Amy died or Amy Winehouse was an old has been who was eclipsed by Adele. Its a shame when people have to do down one artist in favor of another, though I must confess I am not above doing that myself.Early life.

Either the work slipped under the fandom and critics' radar during production, it was dismissed as outright crap based just on previews, or the company/publisher didn't have much faith in it and neglected its promotion, yet it managed to get sizable box offices or sales.
