Amy Winehouse Found Dead


Amy Winehouse, 27 year old English soul-jazz singer-songwriter and famous for her substance abuse and mental health issues, was found dead in her apartment in London today (July 23, 2011).

At 3:54 pm, two ambulances were called to Winehouse's apartment. Shortly afterwards, the Metropolitan Police confirmed her death, without specifying Winehouse's name.

"Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05 hours today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased. On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene. Inquiries continue into the circumstances of death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."

I can't say that she had a successful career because of her health and alcohol issues. Last June 18 during her European Tour, she was terribly booed by a disgruntled crowd of 20,000 for repeatedly leaving the stage mid-performance, forgetting the lyrics of her barely-recognized songs. After that, she canceled all her upcoming tours and her management said she would take time off to recover.

Still, our thoughts and prayers are with her family and loved ones. Rest in peace, Amy Winehouse.
