Amy Winehouse Dead at 27

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 JustJared.com: “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.”

@Alena: honestly I pretty much ignored all news about her because it was sad watching her perform when she was obviously under the influence. Her enablers shouldn’t have let that happen.

allah rahmet eylesin ..

Amy succumbed to her “demons” – addiction of drugs & alcohol.
At least her talent was recognized worldwide (5 Grammies).
She’s better off now whereever it is. RIP

Beautiful piece on Amy Winehouse by Russell Brand who was a friend of Amy’s and a fellow addict. It takes a while to load but it is worth it.

I wish for Amy peace and love in the afterlife. Despite all the naysayers she brought joy through her singing. She will be gratly missed and she was a monster talent.

Sleep well little flower……. Peace be with you. YOU ARE LOVED!!!!

One could almost argue, the real art that this young woman had created wasn’t necessarily the music she had created, but the strange and obscene performance art piece she called her daily life. One can only wonder what type of morbid fascination the public had watching this woman again and again sink into self oblivion. But that perhaps was part of the appeal and expectation that one has of their stars. The idea that it can ultimately lead to a kind of capricious public death, or martyrdom hardly registers until we see the dead woman’s casket being hauled down the street and the world suddenly turns around and grieves violently as the final curtains of this woman’s life, performance comes to a close.

A very bitter close indeed…
