Unlike the news media and other people that tend to mock her troubled life, Amy Winehouse's mother, Janis Winehouse, is trying to reach her daughter through an open letter in London's News of the World, begging her to come home for help.
The letter comes hot on the heels of her being photographed wandering the streets of London at dawn in only a bra and jeans.
In the letter, Janis among others wrote "We want to help you, but we know that unless you want to be helped - unless you come to us - anything we tried would be in vain. I pile hope upon hope that your strong will can bend for just a moment to make that decision and come home to me. We were terrified after we saw those pictures of you earlier this week, wandering the freezing streets of London at dawn in your underwear. All I wanted to do was rush into those pictures and wrap you up in a big, warm blanket."
Considered one of the leading talents in the pop scene, Winehouse has become media darling with her chaotic lifestyles. Her antics just got worse following her husband Blake Fielder-Civil's arrest of inflicting grievous bodily harm on a pub landlord in an incident in June last year.
Worse, Winehouse recently canceled all her remaining planned concerts this year, saying she could not perform while her husband was in custody.
