Watch Amy Winehouse Profess Her Love Of Beyonce In A New Deleted Scene From 'Amy'
This week marks the dvd and Blu-ray release of Amy, the Amy Winehouse biopic documentary that had Questlove losing his public composure and we ourselves warning that it’s by no means easy viewing. All the same, it’s an essential look into the life and talent of one of the century’s most important R&B artists, and now in a newly-revealed deleted scene from the Asif Kapadia-directed documentary we get to see an endearing, extra-human side of the fallen star.
The clip comes from the 2004 Brit Awards, during which Amy Winehouse was nominated for Best British Female artist–an award she wound up losing to Dido. Throughout the entire scene she appears eager, on edge even, and we hear in its voice over that it was during this time that Winehouse became most self-conscious about her weight, driving her to develop an eating disorder that would wreak havoc over the rest of her life. Still, for this brief moment Amy is just Amy, a happy and slightly-starstruck young woman who seems amazed at her own luck of sharing a bit of Beyonce’s spotlight.
