Amy Winehouse says having a tattoo of her ex lover's name reminds her she was an "idiot".
The singer, known for her wild partying, has a former lover's name etched on her left breast.
She refuses to have it removed because it reminds her of previous mistakes.
The star told Britain's The Sun newspaper: "I'm keeping my 'Blake' tattoo because I need reminding of what an idiot I am."
Following the success of her first album, 'Frank', in 2003, Amy's partying got out of hand.
The 23-year-old admits she was "all over the place" and "smoked weed all day".
Recently, the Londoner confessed she had a drink problem and has taken a break from her wild ways - thanks to the new love in her life.
Amy said: "There's another side of me people don't see. I like to get up early, cook my man breakfast and go to the gym. That's my routine and I like to stick to it."
Amy, who is up for two BRIT Awards - British Female and British MasterCard Album - is thrilled the event is on Valentine's Day and that Alex will be there to spend it with her.
However, despite being tipped for success in the British Female category, Amy thinks her best friend and fellow songstress Lily Allen will be taking home the award.
She said: "I'm good at predicting the winners. My hunch is that Lily will completely clean up."
