Amy Winehouse's New Addiction: Shopping!

Amy Winehouse has traded in one addiction for another! And this new habit of hers is a lot less dangerous. Amy has reportedly become addicted to shopping!

Her father Mitch worries about her new habit, and thinks it will put her in debt. According to him, his daughter spent thousands of dollars in one shopping trip alone.

Mitch says, "Amy quit the drugs in her own way. In 2008, she said to me, 'Dad, I don't want to do this any more.' And she hasn't. I'm more proud of her for that than for her music - she's done it all herself. But she's not out of the woods yet. She's a recovering addict and other problems have developed.”

He continues, “She’ll go into Agent Provocateur and spend £3,000 on underwear in one go. She works out for three to four hours a day, running and in the gym.”

While 3 to 4 hours may be a little excessive, it’s still better than hardcore drugs! Mitch also admitted he is worried about Amy’s drinking, but doesn’t think he can get her to cut down.

“Amy’s still drinking. Not to excess, but she drinks perhaps more than she should. The ideal situation is that she steers clear of alcohol, but she’s 26 and she wants to be with people and have a drink,” he says.

It’s all about baby steps! But we wish part of the healing process was getting back into the studio!
