British singer Adele paid tribute to Amy Winehouse by putting up a piece of writing on her website. She described her as an inspiration and admitted that she learned lots of things from her, like being herself and not compromising from her peer.
“Not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it. With no fuss and no compromise. We believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing," she wrote.
Adele also said that she didn't think Amy realised how important she was to other artistes. “Amy knew what she was capable of and didn't even need to try. If she wanted to do something she would and if she didn't she'd say f**k off. I don't think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming," she added.
It may be worth mentioning that Adele and Amy are the only British female solo artistes, who managed to make it big in the US.
