Amy Winehouse’s Dad Mitch Opens Up To Piers Morgan About Her Substance Abuse

This Monday, Anderson Cooper’s interview with the family of the late Amy Winehouse will air — but Piers Morgan has gotten a jump on that by speaking to the Tony Bennet collaborator’s dad, Mitch. The Piers Morgan Tonight host talked candidly about his daughter’s drug and alcohol use, saying, “She was like any other 27 year old, thinking smoking’s not going to kill you” — and about her recovery. Watch this chat with songbird who was so beautifully tributed at the MTV VMAs by Bruno Mars (and somewhat less beautifully with this bronze bust) below.

The full interview will air September 12.

What do you think of Mitch Winehouse’s interview — enlightening, or exploitative?
