Amy Winehouse's accent

What kind of accent does she have? It's definitely a London accent but which type? She is often referred to as "Cockney" but I don't think she has a Cockney accent. She's from Camden.

I'm talking about her speech not her singing voice, which sounds American.

Amy's accent is totally fake. She's a Jewish princess trying desperately to be 'street'. Bad tattoos, fake accent - SO embarrassing.

Maybe she should be sent to rehab...

Hope this helps:

Taken from:

"Winehouse was born in Southgate, London to a Jewish family with a history of jazz musicians.[2] Her father, Mitchell Winehouse, is a taxi driver, and her mother is a pharmacist. She grew up in the suburb of Southgate, North London, and attended Ashmole School."
