AMY Winehouse last night blamed her addiction to crack cocaine on a hallucination of the devil she saw while high on LSD.
The Rehab singer said Satan appeared before her in the guise of a six-foot Jamaican called Barrington while she was visiting a council flat with a steel door just off Westbourne Grove.
She said Beelzebub incanted curses over her in a strange, heavily accented English before selling her a small bag of sensimilia, three rocks of crack, a Kit-Kat, and a small plastic pipe, all for £25.
The singer said: "Okay, I had dabbled in drugs before Lucifer cast his spell, a little weed, some coke, a bit of smack and the odd pint of Night Nurse with a Benylin chaser.
"I'd tried ketamine, crystal meth, amphetamine, ecstasy, crushed up valium, Temazepam, PCP, GHB, mescaline, amyl nitrate, Vim, unleaded petrol, cider ice lollies and Jagermeister.
"I’d done Darvon, Lortab, methadone, morphine, Percodan, some Phenaphen with Codeine, Talacen, Tramadol, lots of Tylenol, some Ultram, but never all at the same time like now, and I never touched Vicodin.
"That is the work of the devil."
A spokeswoman for Beelzebub said Satan did appear on earth in human form but that he was much more likely to manifest as Al Pacino, Liz Hurley or Richard and Judy than a large West Indian.
She said: "The devil is all about spreading evil and confusion, he is not, and never has been, a man for reinforcing negative stereotypes about black people."
