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.”

RIP Amy! Note to record label and the world: one word…. TRIBUTE

It’s so sad that she wasn’t strong enough to fight her demons. Hopefully she can be in peace now……R.I.P!!!

Jesus, thats terrible. Hardly suprising though. RIP Amy

Holy sh!t! I always thought she would make it, I always hoped she would make it, I have no words. I loved her music it sucks that it ended so soon for her. Rest In Peace, Amy.

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.

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

Drugs, alcohol and an Eating disorder=catastrophe


Rest In Peace Amy. Along with all those who lost their lives in Norway yesterday. Too many young people have died in vain. We are thinking of you. Your talent will live on forever, Amy.


you’re a disgusting pig.

I’m going to listen to Back to Black and a have a good cry today. Rip, Amy.

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

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

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.

this is so tragic. Amy was extremely good.

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

Brian @85 you are a self-righteous ****.


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 **** about this women that you knew not a damn thing about. Get some help, don’t be an ****, 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.

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

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

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.
