Mark Ronson is so furious at being misquoted recently when talking about friend and collaborator Amy Winehouse that he has vowed to never talk about her in interviews again.
New York's Village Voice ran an interview with Mark earlier this month (May) in which he allegedly suggested that Amy was "upset, competitive, (and) restless" after Adele's rise to global fame.
The story was widely reported but Ronson has since posted a statement on Facebook.com denying he made the comments.
He wrote, "I rarely ever respond to misquotes and wrong information. Plus, it only serves to bring attention to the matter. However in this case, I will not f**king tolerate it... I read the interview for the first time just now, and there are so many wrong quotes in there. I can tell the dude was writing whatever he wanted because he uses words and language that I never EVER f**king use in my daily life."
He added, "At one point, he (the interviewer) was grilling me about Amy to the point that I said that Amy was itching to get back in the studio, and the recent success of others that she had blazed a trail for had put the fire in her belly. But that is absolutely it and all these other words are a complete affront to me, her, Adele and anyone who reads this s**te."
Because of the incident Ronson has now states that he will never answer future questions about Winehouse, adding, "Sorry to get so f**king angry over something that may seem trivial but some wrongs must be righted. And I have learned my lesson and will no longer answer questions about our girl."
Is Mark right to be angry?
