Amy Winehouse Talks About ‘Going Mad From Fame’ Documentary

The first teaser trailer for the upcoming documentary on Amy Winehouse has been released and focuses on the singer’s personal struggle with fame. Amy includes footage from Winehouse’s pre-fame days, back when she had mild aspirations be become a musician.

In the trailer, Winehouse talks about the importance of singing in her life and how lucky she felt knowing she could be a singer someday. When asked about fame, Winehouse delivers a chilling foreshadow, saying “I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it, I would probably go mad.”

Amy is directed by Asif Kapadia, who directed the 2010 biopic Senna. The film is slated to be released in the UK on July 3 and will hopefully hit North America this summer.
