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.”

    Oh - My, My Says:

    There was some talk to expect another Cobain situation. it’s just so sad. Her voice is in the league of Joplin, Aretha, the greats.

    But it was upsetting how people were making fun of her instead of taking the steps to get her literally ‘certified’ so she could get the help she needed.

    But can you believe a popular stupidmodel was making fun of her disease? For all her PR-instructed image, CINDY CRAWFORD doesn’t understand empathy – unless it applies to herself, of course. Check this

    A little insensitive, non? Possibly sociopathic.

    When will people learn. Such a waste of a life! It saddens me when I read about people like Amy. She was immensely talented and so young. As a mother, I hurt for her parents. Amy’s life is over but her parents will have to bear the burden of her death for the rest of their lives. As a child, my mother told me not to touch a hot stove as I could get burned. I didn’t need to touch the stove to know the wisdom of her warning. Why can’t people see the hot stove in drugs? You shouldn’t need to be hit over the head with a two by four to know that drugs are extremely bad for you and you should NEVER get involved with them. RIP Amy. May God watch over you and your family.

    People not only on this sight, but on other sites and on YT are sick, sad and pathetic people to be happy some one is dead. She was a person with feelings and emotions, she was a person who had family, friends, and fans who loved and cared for her and were rooting for her during all the hard times. I was one of them and never did stop defending her. When people said they couldn’t wait till the b***ch was dead because it would make the world better, I felt for her and defended her.

    Addiction is a disease as much as people want to deny it and it can happen to anyone close to you or you. I know this and the pain her family must have felt because I’m dealing with it with a family member. My cousin is addicted to drugs with one of them being sherm. I pray for her and pray she finds her way because I would hate to hear something such as death Amd feel the pain in which Amy has felt.

    Rest in Peace Amy and I hope you find happiness wherever you are and I will pray for her family, her goddaughter, and close friends who lost a person close to them due to drugs. I will also pray for the people with the rude comments on her so that they will never experience a family member with a drug problem or a death due to drugs.

    Not surprised.
    Between Amy Winshouse,Britney Spears, Lyndsay Lohan, it was at one time a 3-way race.
    Britney will be ok as long as she stays on her meds and her father has conservatorship over her.
    I think Lyndsay is coming up next.She is barely hanging on.
    She is still a drug addict, alcoholic.

    Well,Amy had it all with a strong talent, something a lil different than what is out there now. She could have had it all.

    Take note to others, DRUGS=dancing with the devil.You might win one day and you migbht not win one day.
    ALSO, drugs/alcoholism IS NOT an illness or a disease.
    A disease,illness is something that befalls you like a 6yr. having Luekemia. Saying it is a disease or illness is just something people say today to make themselves feel better. Same goes for overeating,,lying, etc. CHOICES, not diseases.

    Drugs/alcohol is CHOICE. It is addicitve. Some people can handle alcoholand some can’t. No one can handle drugs.

    While she had some talent and could have gone somewhere and grew ,changed, AMY WINEHOUSE did not change the music scene or do anything significant like that.
    Sorry folks.

    So tell me something new Says:

    @kevin McCluskey:
    No, not weird.
    It is called Drugs =Dancing with Devil.Some peoplewinand some don’t.
    keith Richards won, but he had many,many cost.
    it was a free ride and it a few decades.
    the list of folks you did not win.
    It is ok,really,in that most people don’t win against drugs, and if they can’t handle alcohol, then that too.

    Sad thing is ,if you have somebody with this addiction, put them away. Tuff love. No communication with you. get them to a rehab or mental hosptial.
    If not, well, go see them eventually at their grave.
