British filmmaker Reg Traviss was distraught upon learning of his former girlfriend's demise.

Lady Gaga has spoken out about Amy Winehouse's tragic death, insisting that it should serve as a warning to society to not 'kill the superstar'.

'It''s a lesson to the world. Don't kill the superstar, take care of her soul,' the Daily Mail quoted the 25-year-old Judas singer as saying.

Gaga said that while she did not personally know Winehouse, she loved her 'so much' and revealed that she used to get mistaken for the British soul icon before she became famous.

Speaking about Amy, who died on Saturday, Lady Gaga said: 'I was nobody when she was first coming out. I would be on the street and people would go 'Amy'. I just remember feeling like I wasn''t alone because she was so different."
