Natalie Cole to Amy Winehouse: “Drugs Are Bad”

- By Bossip Staff

Natalie Cole doesn’t want Amy Winehouse to follow down the same syringe-laden path she has:

NATALIE COLE is standing by her previous criticisms of AMY WINEHOUSE – urging the troubled star not to make the same mistakes she did. Cole sparked outrage last year (08) by announcing that the Back To Black hitmaker didn’t “deserve” to take home a clutch of Grammy Awards when she was caught up in the throws of drug addiction. Winehouse landed five gongs at the 2008 ceremony and performed via satellite link-up from London, where she was fresh out of a rehab clinic. The star subsequently underwent several more stints in hospital in a bid to kick her addictions and is currently re-cooperating with an extended holiday in the Caribbean. Cole – who endured a long-running battle with heroine addiction – is now suffering from the debilitating Hepatitis C virus. And she hopes Winehouse will look at her case and stop experimenting with drugs for good. She tells Fox News, “I got into a bit of hot water for what I said about Amy Winehouse and I still say it again. I’m an ex-drug addict and I don’t take that kind of stuff lightly. “It stayed in my body for 25 years and it could still happen to this young woman or other addicts who are fooling around with drugs, especially needles. I would hope that what happened to me does not happen to her.”

It is very nice of Natalie to offer words of drug wisdom to Amy, and she should really take heed to them because Natalie is clearly a certified expert in all things drug-related.  Poor thangs.

    And she is right, but the only time I see bad behaviour rewarded is when the person is Caucasion. Let Rihanna or BEY act like her and see how far they get and if the world is so forgiving as to award them with GRAMMY’s anyway. I’m just calling it as I see it – for anyone who might get offended.

    Natalie’s sentiments are good, but its the way she said what she said about Amy Winehouse last year; we ALL know that Natalie scored dozens of number one hits with a drug in her system, so who is SHE to say who ‘deserves’ what? I don’t see her running to give her awards back to the academy….. But I still wish Natalie the best of luck with her health.

    Some of the greatest music has been created by those under the influence of drugs, no one takes anything away from them. Grammy’s are for the artform/performance not personality or private lifestyle

    Just looking at Amy makes me want to go to rehab right now. Not b/c I have a current problem. No, I would go to ensure that I never have a problem and end up looking like her.

    If Amy Crackhouse has not figured out just by looking in the mirror that drugs are bad, then Natalie Cole my dear, your words are just gonna fall on deaf coked-out ears 😦
