Life is funny ... It wasn't long ago she was criticizing Amy Whinehouse .When you point fingers you have 3 pointing back ..
Natalie wasn't criticizing Winehouse for having a drug problem, she was protesting the fact that Amy celebrates and even glorifies her lifestyle of drug use defiantly to the world and uses the vastly commercial medium of her music career to do so. Mrs. Cole, to her credit, NEVER dared to do that! But, she believes that Winehouse's choice to do so is reckless and irresponsible.

Well I hope that she will be okay. I am not one to judge, as others have, claiming that it was her former lifestyle that may have caused the illness.

Once again I hope all goes well with her.

Such a great singer!

I can not believe how judgemental everyone is. So what if it is drug use. She has been straight for years as have I and all of a sudden POW you get this diagnosis! It's a shocker alright. Yes we were not very smart in our youth..........go figure! I certainly didn't mean to harm myself or anyone else and I certainly don't want to take the drugs that destroy you with only a chance of beating HepC but then you have the effects of the drug to deal with. God Bless her and everyone with Hep C!

Um there are kids being raped, killed for no apparent reason why are they even putting this out about natalie? She got it thru drug use and sooo she was also a one hit wonder.
Because she is famous and she must be an example for the children and people around the world. She really is a very unfortunate lady. I feel sorry for her.
