A new clip from Asif Kapadia’s upcoming documentary about legendary vocalist Amy Winehouse, titled AMY, shows the singer talking about her depression and how music has helped her through her struggles.
“I don’t think I knew what depression was,” she explained. “But I’m not like… some messed up person. There’s a lot of people who suffer depression that don’t have an outlet.” She went on to explain how much music helped her in her personal life.
“I knew I felt funny sometimes, and I was different. I think it’s a musician thing. That’s why I write music.”
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment on July 23, 2011 after suffering from alcohol withdrawal.
The AMY documentary debuts in New York and Los Angeles on July 3, before hitting cinemas nationwide on July 10.
