In a desperate attempt to reach her daughter, Amy Winehouse‘s mother has written an 1,100-word open letter, asking her daughter to get help. In the plea, appearing in The News Of The World (the American equivalent of The National Enquirer), Janis Winehouse explains she felt compelled to write to her daughter after seeing pictures of Winehouse wandering the streets in the early morning hours wearing a bra and jeans.
“All I wanted to do was rush into those pictures and wrap you up in a big,warm blanket,” said Janis. With pledges of home-cooking to fatten the emaciated Winehouse up and a request for her to pick up the phone, Winehouse’s mother made no reference to her daughter’s possible drug addiction. She did, however, mention she hopes Winehouse’s recently-incarcerated husband Blake Fielder-Civil turns his life around. In the past week, Winehouse has canceled several tour dates, been photographed wandering the streets in her underwear and kept the company of one of England’s most notorious drug addicts, Pete Doherty.
