Mary J. Blige wants to help Amy Winehouse through her drug problems.
The Grammy-award winning singer is a huge fan of the 'Rehab' star and has
revealed she will be there for the 24-year-old if she ever needs someone to
She said: "I have things to say to Amy Winehouse - loving things and things
she will be able to relate to."
However, Mary admits Amy - who was recently filmed smoking what appeared to
be crack cocaine - is not quite ready to seek professional help for her drug
Mary, who has battled her own drugs problem in the past, said: "I don't
really think she can hear me right now, because when I was in a situation
like she was in I couldn't hear people either."
The 'No More Drama' singer says she only realized she needed to get help
after seeing the effect drugs had had on her body.
She said: "I did drugs, I did a lot. I did things, not just weed, but beyond
that. I'm too strong to get hooked on anything now but at that point I think
I was hooked.
"Then one day I saw my reflection and I said to myself, 'Gosh, I look bad.'
That's when I really knew I needed help."
Mary's new single, 'Just Fine', is released on January 28.
Meanwhile Amy Winehouse went into rehab yesterday (01/24/08) after being given an
ultimatum by her record company.
The troubled singer - who was seen in video footage smoking what appeared to
be crack cocaine earlier this week - was reportedly told by Universal
Records boss Lucian Grainge to "get help or forget your career".
A Universal insider said: "Everyone has had rehab plans in place for her but
were waiting until she decided to get help.
Universal boss Lucian Grainge told her it was time to sort herself out.
"He said she wouldn't be going to the Grammy Awards, the BRITs or even
releasing another album until she did so."
A statement from her record company confirmed yesterday: "Amy decided to
enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management and
"She has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to
continue her ongoing recovery from drug addition and prepare for her
upcoming appearance at the Grammy Awards. Amy entered the facility by mutual
agreement and continues to receive the full support of all concerned."
Amy, 24, was accompanied to London's Capio Nightingale Clinic in Marylebone
by her father Mitch, and looked confused and scared in a black top and
miniskirt as she was led into the facility.
Amy is expected to be well enough to perform at the Grammys in Los Angeles'
Staples Center on February 10.
