Imbruglia urges Winehouse to take care

Most of us can only imagine what it's like to suddenly zoom from being obscure to getting toasted on both side of the Atlantic, sought after by everyone from the South Bank Show to the Grammy judges.

Natalie Imbruglia, like us, can only imagine it, but she's having a crack at putting herself in Amy Winehouse's shoes:

Talking about Winehouse's situation, Imbruglia said that she doesn’t believe Winehouse is “very comfortable with this whole fame thing.”

That's the sort of insight you only pick up with a couple of years on Neighbours, isn't it?
“I think she's an incredibly raw performer and a very real person and I don't think she's very comfortable with this whole fame thing. It shows,” Imbruglia told yahoo music.

"She's just got this gift you know, often people who are that talented struggle with all the attention and everything.

"I hope she doesn't quit. I've read interviews where she's spoken about just wanting to be a mum and that's scary to think, that she won't make records.""

Although, really, wouldn't it better for everyone if she found a lifestyle which didn't turn her into a smackhead victim rather than one that does?
