wino has emphysema

With another update on singer Amy Winehouse, the award winning songstress has emphysema as reported by her father, Mitch over the weekend. The father who has been by his daughters side since she collapsed last week and has been under doctors care since, fears that Amy will loose not only her distinctive British voice, but her life. "She's got emphysema. It's in its early stages, but had it gone on for another month they [doctors] painted a very vivid picture of her sitting there with a mask on her face struggling to breathe," he revealed in an interview on Sunday. "The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her."

About time that she sees what drugs can do to you.

Winehouse, who hasn't released any material in two years, has declared that she'll try to quit her drug addiction and stay clean. "I'm saying to those drug dealers, and they know who they are, if they are supplying crack to Amy, then they've got to take responsibility." Said Mr Winehouse, "I don't want her hanging out with her mates like Pete Doherty either. What hope does she have if people are taking drugs around her?"

Even though she wants to keep the dates, it's very unlikely that Winehouse will keep her upcoming shows including Nelson Mandala's Birthday celebration and the Glastonbury Festival.
