Singer and Tabloid Target Amy Winehouse Passes Away at Age 27

23 Jul

Troubled singer Amy Winehouse, age 27, was found dead today at her London loft.

Many are saddened by the loss of a young talent, however, there aren’t many people out there who are surprised.

Other celebrities have taken to social media to express their condolences and sadness.

“Not a surprise. SO sad, another loss to addiction. A reminder this is often fatal. Recovery is possible, but sadly not for Amy Winehouse.” – Dr. Drew

“I can’t even breathe right now I’m crying so hard I just lost 1 of my best friends. I love you forever Amy & will never forget the real you!” – Kelly Osborne

“I nevr know wht 2 post after paying respect 2 sum1 who died. Just seems lk anything funny is inappropriate. mayB I’ll just go C Harry Potter.” – Ashton Kutcher

“I am genuinely heartbroken about this #DearAmy.” – Rihanna

“Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones, Kurt Cobain and now Amy Winehouse: all died at 27.” – Richard Roeper

“not surprise but super sad to hear about the news. RIP. Never take life for granted.” – Pete Wentz

“Amy Winehouse lived longer than I expected. Is that awful of me? I’m sorry, Amy #RIP.” – Kevin Williamson

“My heart goes out 2 Amy Winehouse’s family, loved ones. Praying for their strength during this time.” – Janelle Monae

“Singer Amy Winehouse found dead at her home in London, DAMN!!! RIP.” – Jermaine Dupri

“After our show in serbia I wish I’d been able to help amy. I knew this would come, I’m sorry,” – Moby

As troubled as she was – drugs, drinking, violence, and a life of disarray – her talent was undeniable.

According to the Chicago Tribune, “Authorities are investigating the cause of the British singer’s death. But, sadly, it was a surprise to virtually no one. Winehouse had been waging a very public struggle with substance abuse since her teens, and after the huge success of her 2006 breakthrough album, Back to Black, her erratic behavior devolved even further, effectively putting her career on hold.” Her death is suspected to be an overdose – whether accidental or suicide remains to be seen but the Hollywood rumor mills are suspecting that it was likely intentional.

Now, the world will never see what could have been.

I hope that news of her passing will serve as a wake-up call to other troubled starlets out there… the  eerie”27 Club” does not need anymore new members! May she rest in peace.
