A24 released the first trailer for the upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary “Amy” on Thursday, and it features previously unreleased audio of the singer saying that she never expected to become famous.
“I don’t think I’m going to be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle it,” she says. “I would fully go mad.”
Winehouse also says, “Singing was very important to me but I never thought I’ll end up singing or I’ll be a singer. I just always thought it’s something I can do if I want to.”
“Amy” was directed by Asif Kapadia, the BAFTA Award-winning British director who previously made “Senna,” which focused on the life and career of world-champion Formula 1 racer Ayrton Senna.
Winehouse experienced a meteoric rise to international fame in 2006 with her second album, “Back to Black.” Behind the scenes, the British singer battled serious drug and alcohol addiction that ultimately led to her death in 2011.
