The Rehab star admitted her life is a "mess" in a rare and candid interview with the Daily Mirror newspaper - and suggested her dreams were crumbling around her.
The star has caused concern for her health over the last 12 months, with multiple trips to hospital and stints in rehab to try and battle her drink and drug addictions.
And Winehouse also spoke about her fears for 12-year-old goddaughter Dionne Bromfield, who she gave a shambolic performance with at the Prince's Trust End of Summer Ball bash on Thursday (25Sep08), insisting she reminds her of herself when she was a young aspiring singer.
She tells the publication, "When I look at Dionne she reminds me of myself. I used to be this little girl who liked Celine Dion and singing, this beautiful sweet girl with innocent dreams.
"Look where I am now. Look what happened to my dreams. This isn't a life - I'm a mess, look at me. But this girl has everything ahead of her. She's so beautiful and she reminds me so much of myself.
"This beautiful happy girl, she is so much like I used to be. I don't want to leave her alone. I can't believe what has happened to me. I am so sad."
The star faces police questioning after allegedly attacking a female fan at the event, after she reportedly lashed out at dancer Sherene Flash when she asked the star to pose for a photo.
