Adele - Adele: 'Winehouse Flies In Paradise'

Soul sensation Adele has paid a touching tribute to Amy Winehouse, insisting the tragic singer had no idea "just how brilliant she was".
The Rolling In The Deep star is still reeling from the sad news of Winehouse's death, which broke around the world on Saturday (23Jul11), and she's taken to her online blog to express her grief at the loss of such an "important" British talent.
Adele writes, "Not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it, with no fuss and no compromise. But she knew what she was capable of and didn't even need to try. If she wanted to do something she would, and if she didn't, she'd say, 'F**k off.' It came easy to her and that's why we all loved her so much."
And the young star has praised fellow Brit Winehouse for paving the way for soul artists like herself to break into the mainstream charts.
She continues, "We believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing.
"I don't think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming. Although I'm incredibly sad about Amy passing, I'm also reminded of how immensely proud of her I am as well - and grateful to be inspired by her. Amy flies in paradise."
The cause of Winehouse's death is not expected to be determined until October (11) after an initial post mortem examination on Monday (25Jul11) proved inconclusive.
