Amy Winehouse’s granddaughter spent years blocking her memory of the singer.
Dionne Bromfield was only 15 years old when the “back to black” hit maker died of alcoholism at the age of 27 in July 2011, but as the tragic 10th anniversary of his death approaches, the singer’s own I learned that I need to “offload” my emotions.
Asked about her next documentary, Amy Winehouse & Me: The Story of Dionne, she said:
“But as we approached the 10th anniversary of her death, I felt like I really wanted to offload a lot of accumulated emotions and emotions.
“And I felt that Amy had a little-known aspect, so I wanted to share it.”
Dionne became nervous about dealing with her feelings, but gradually became able to speak “easily”.
She told Heat Magazine: “I think it’s one of the most difficult things when you have to look in the mirror.
“But I knew I had to put a pin in that chapter to move forward.
“And the more I talked, the more I gained weight from my shoulders.
“It’s getting easier and easier. It was the easiest thing to talk about her because it was the hardest to talk about her 10 years ago. It was crazy.”
Dionne wants the documentary to show how “compassion and affection” Amy had.
When asked what impression she wanted to leave in the film, she said:
“I think people always think she’s out and talking about her heart, but she’s very polite, sweet, and very normal.
“I didn’t pretend. She was her real self.
“And she was joking for days, that woman. If she weren’t a singer, she would have been an easy laughing talent.
“I want people to see the real Amy I know, because anyone who knew her was lucky to know her.”
