Amy Winehouse Dead at 27

Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London apartment, according to multiple reports.

The Grammy-winning British singer, who battled substance abuse throughout the years and most recently checked into rehab in May, was found Saturday (July 23) in her flat, according to Sky News. She was 27.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed to the BBC that “a 27-year-old woman had died in Camden and that the cause of death was as yet unexplained.”

U.K.’s Daily Mail reports that Amy had been seen with her goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, earlier in the week as the teen performed during the iTunes festival.

Monte and Avery Lipman, President and CEO, Co-President of Universal Republic Records, respectively, said this in a statement to “We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy‘s family, friends and fans at this difficult time.”

    OMG This was totally unexpected … but I think she wasn’t happy with her life that’s why she degraded herself in such a way … sad cause she had a unique talent, great voice !! She will surely be missed for me. Reminds me of Jeff Buckley’s story.

  • So Sad

    I could just cry. Such a young woman with such a great gift…Her entire life ahead of gone. How sad her songs were, did anyone not hear and help? Inevitably she did not help herself. 27…Rest in peace.

    @Lisa: don’t be a bitch, she passed away let her rest in peace, seriously you don’t need to insult her especially after she just died. how would you feel if you died and somone talks shit about you. if you don’t like her just let it go and don’t worry about it.

  • Tom


    Have you got nothing better to do than beg for attention? A person has died, have some respect!

  • Brian

    If it’s drug related then I have no sympathy at all. She may have been an ok performer but that’s not what I will remember her for, it’ll be for the drugs.

  • suz

    That’s ANOTHER one at aged 27 …. Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix (Kurt Cobain, too?) Get those conspiracy theorists out!!!

  • Fake

    Drugs, alcohol and an Eating disorder=catastrophe

  • Santera


    you’re a disgusting pig.

  • juliemoon

  • Anon

    I wasn’t a fan of hers by any means, but I want to say that I am sorry. I hate to hear the news of ANYONE

  • Scarrr

    I saw it it coming, when she around her forties. but 27?!?!?! To young. R.I.P

  • suz

    Per my earlier comment:

  • Anon

    I wasn’t a fan of hers by any means, but I want to say that I am sorry. I hate to hear the news of ANYONE dying. With that being said, I can’t say I’m completely shocked. We’ve all heard about her past addiction so as sad as it is, it’s not that surprising.

  • mary

    this is so tragic. Amy was extremely good.

  • AEON

    One of the greatest voice of our time gone too soon. RIP Amy. I will miss you.

    Brian @85 you are a self-righteous cunt.

  • Gilmore


    I’m sorry but did you know anything about her? Sure she was an addict, we all know that, but do you truly know the person behind all of that? She was talented and in my opinion didn’t fully know that and always cheated herself for less. If you don’t like her please don’t come here and talk shit about this women that you knew not a damn thing about. Get some help, don’t be an arse, take a look in the mirror and think if I died would I want someone disrespecting me like that? Despite what you think people actually do love her and are mourning the loss of someone so special.

  • Annie

    I’m not sure whether this is shocking or not shocking at all. It’s kind of both. Oh, Amy, Amy.

  • laurie

    PICS !!! Horrible

  • Fan

    Rest in peace Great Soul Singer !!! we will miss your voice :(

  • anon

    Unlike so many here, I AM SHOCKED. Of course I am shocked. This by definition, is shocking news. Doesn’t matter how “inevitable” her death was. It is always shocking when someone young succumbs to the forces of death and destruction, as it should be.
