Drug-addled singer Amy Winehouse has discovered a new way of taking cocaine - by mixing it with cotton candy, according to a British tabloid newspaper.
Winehouse, 25, was introduced to the concoction as a joke by her pal Mik Whitnall, guitarist in UK indie band Babyshambles, after she bought a $1,200 cotton candy making machine, the News of the World reported yesterday.
Winehouse thought it was hilarious and has made the coke-and-candy special a party piece at her house, it was reported. A pal told the newspaper, “It was Mik’s idea. The (cotton candy) machine was Amy’s pride and joy and he thought it would be funny to give it a boost.
“He and some pals sprinkled a wrap of coke into the mixture and Amy started eating it before she realised (sic) what they’d done. She now thinks it’s a hoot to do the same.”
Amy, who dated crack addict Mik, 38, after her hubby, Blake Fielder-Civil, was jailed, has seen her face and body ravaged by hard drugs in the past year.
“With her painfully thin frame and her wild beehive hair, she’s actually starting to look like a stick of (cotton candy) herself,” a source told the newspaper.
