At twenty three, jazz singer songwriter Amy Winehouse may be the hottest female singing talent in the world today, she may have cracked America, sung with the Rolling Stones and be lauded by the likes of Prince, Elton John, Jay Z and P Diddy,she may be a married, tattooed, multi millionaire with a reputation for hellraising and doing exactly what she wants when she wants but the dimuitive Jewish girl from North London is still very much Daddy’s little princess.
