Winehouse makes u-turn on Ronson comments

Amy Winehouse has taken back comments about Mark Ronson being “dead” to her, now claiming she “loves” him.

The ‘Rehab’ singer made a statement on twitter this weekend, saying she believed the producer was taking more credit than deserved for his work on her eight million selling ‘Back To Black’ album.

She originally wrote: “Ronson you're dead to me; one album I write an you take half the credit- make a career out of it? Don't think so BRUV (sic)."

However, Amy has since clarified, writing: "Ronson I love you; that make it better? You know I love you - it's a Jew thingz (sic)."

Mark – who is about to release his third album ‘Record Collection’ - said he was surprised at Amy’s original comment because he always acknowledges working with her helped launch both his career as an artist and his second record, ‘Version’.

He said: “I've always been really candid about saying that Amy is the reason I am on the map. If it wasn't for the success of 'Back To Black', no-one would have cared too much about 'Version'."

Amy has on numerous occasions posted incoherent and rambling messages on social media sites, some which seemed to suggest she had been under the influence of alcohol at the time of writing.

Amy and Mark also recently worked together on a cover of Lesley Gore song 'It's My Party' for a Quincy Jones tribute album, which will be released in November.
