Amy Winehouse believed she would die young

London: Singer Amy Winehouse always believed she would "die young"and join the `27 Club` of music stars who pass away at that age.

The `Rehab` hitmaker, who was found dead at her home in Camden, north London, on Saturday, believed she would die at the age of 27 like singers Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin, Female first reported.

Her friend Alex Foden, who once lived with Winehouse, said, "Unfortunately, Amy had a very obsessive personality. She did everything to extremes, especially when it came to food and drugs. She loved food."

"Amy always told me she would die young and that she knew she`d become part of the `27 Club`.

"But she`d either have binges – eating loads before running up to the toilet and getting rid of it all again – or she`d go up to four or five days without eating, surviving on alcohol, drugs and sweets.

"Because heroin depletes the sugar levels in your blood, she used to mainly survive off sweets," he said.

However, the five-time Grammy winner still had plenty of time for those around her, often cooking up huge feasts for her pals.

"She was incredibly clean and tidy at home, and could be a real matriarch, looking after everyone and cooking for all her friends and family. At the heart of it, Amy was simply a lovely, bubbly Jewish girl who wanted to be loved," he added.
