Amy, who this year admitted drinking too much, said she refuses to take medication, even though clinically diagnosed as a manic depressive. Of her visit to rehab, she said: “The fella in charge said: ‘Why are you here?’, and I said: ‘Well, I think I’ve come here because I’m drinking a lot. But I’m in love and the drinking is symptomatic of my depression. I’m not an alcoholic.'” She left. Her new single “Rehab” is released next month.”
