Amy Winehouse: I Dress "Like I'm an Old Jewish Black Man"

Amy Winehouse reportedly hurled a plate of spaghetti bolognese at the wall of her hotel room in Munich, Germany, in 2007, and allegedly racked up $18,000 worth of damage to her room at the Sanderson Hotel in London two months earlier, after a fight with then-husband Blake Fielder-Civil. She also reportedly caused $6,000 worth of damage at London's Rivington Plaza Hotel in 2008, allegedly littering the floor with cigarette butts and champagne bottles, and staining the tub with black hair dye.

NEW YORK (CBS) Amy Winehouse is known for her tattoos and heavy eyeliner as much as she is for her music, but the singer says she doesn't consider herself to be a style icon.

"A style, like, what?" she asked, confused, in an interview published in the November issue of Harper's Bazaar. "No, of course I'm not!"

"I just dress like ... I'm an old black man. Sorry!" she continued. "Like I'm an old Jewish black man. I just dress like it's still the '50s."

Winehouse also told the magazine about her inspirations (Elizabeth Taylor, Miles Davis and Busta Rhymes were some of the people she named) and her new boyfriend.

"I've got a ve'y nice boyfriend. He's ve'y good to me," she said. When asked if she was in love, she responded, "I hardly know ... yet. We've only been together three and a half months."

Although she admits she doesn't consider herself a style icon, Winehouse recently collaborated with British fashion designer Fred Perry on a 17-piece women's line for the Fall 2010 season.

"I knew exactly what I wanted," she said of the line. "And I love Fred Perry so much. I was honored that they would even, like, 'Do you want to come and do a line?' Me? Like, me? Yeah!"
