Amy Winehouse, 27, found dead

Post by MJfan01' » Sat Jul 23, 2011 1:17 pm

Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in London.
The Back To Black singer was found at the property by emergency services at 3.54pm this afternoon, according to sources, and her death is being treated as 'unexplained' by police.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: 'Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs 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.
'Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.’
It is not known whether Amy’s father Mitch actually knows about his daughter’s death and Sky News have confirmed that he is currently on a plane to New York to take part in a Jazz festival.

Winehouse had been seen with her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield earlier this week as the teenager took to the stage at the iTunes festival.
She refused to join in for Mama Said, but did support the 14-year-old with a few dance moves before urging the crowd to buy Dionne's new album Good For The Soul.
A source said: 'Amy staggered onstage and grabbed the mic to beg the crowd to buy her protege’s new album.'

Winehouse's appearance at the concert came after she cancelled her European tour following a disastrous performance in June when she stumbled onto the stage in Belgrade and gave an incoherent performance appearing very disorientated and removed from reality.

STARS PAY TRIBUTE TO AMY WINEHOUSE ON TWITTER
Radio DJ Fearne Cotton said: 'Can not believe the news. Amy was a special girl. The saddest news.'

Singer and presenter Myleene Klass wrote: 'OMG. Amy Winehouse. Exceptional talent and really nice lady. RIP.'

Presenter Phillip Schofield added: 'Just heard the sad news that Amy Winehouse has died. At only 27 what a terrible waste of a great talent. Sincere condolences to her family.'
Singer and radio presenter Emma Bunton said: 'Such sad news about Amy Winehouse. My thoughts are with her family.'
Sarah Brown, the former prime minister's wife, tweeted: 'Sad sad news of Amy Winehouse - great talent, extraordinary voice, and tragic death, condolences to her family.'

Following the concert which saw fans enraged and the subsequent video that circulated to millions she cancelled the remaining dates of her European tour.

A statement released by the troubled singer's spokesperson said that the singer would be given 'as long as it takes' to recover.
The statement read: 'Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances.
'Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen.'
Winehouse had been working on her long-awaited new album, the follow-up to her 2006 breakthrough multi-million selling Back To Black, for the past three years.

Winehouse has had a troubled life which has included various stints in rehab for drug and alcohol addiction.

In an interview in 2008, her mother Janis said she would be unsurprised if her daughter died before her time.
She said: 'I've known for a long time that my daughter has problems. But seeing it on screen rammed it home. I realise my daughter could be dead within the year. We're watching her kill herself, slowly.

'I've already come to terms with her dead. I've steeled myself to ask her what ground she wants to be buried in, which cemetery. Because the drugs will get her if she stays on this road.
'I look at Heath Ledger and Britney. She's on their path. It's like watching a car crash - this person throwing all these gifts away.'
As well her battles with drugs and alcohol, Winehouse also had a troubled marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, who she divorced in summer 2009.

Fielder-Civil and Winehouse married in 2007 in Miami. The pair's relationship - heavily documented by the media - saw them appearing in public bloodied and bruised after fights.

It is also alleged former music video producer Fielder-Civil was the one who introduced the Back to Black star to heroin and crack cocaine.
Amy's father Mitch previously spoke out about how his daughter stayed away from drugs prior to meeting her ex-husband.

In a previous interview last year he said: 'He's not entirely responsible, she's got to take a portion of the responsibility, but it's clear, it really kicked off when they got together.'

I never listened to her music, but it's still tragic to hear this, especially at a young age. RIP Amy.

I heard about this on the radio news this morning. I know that she's had a history with drug issues but I was always hopeful that she would pull free from it. It's really sad.

I'd like to share a quote from Amy about Michael, who she endlessly cared for and admired, in her honor:

"You know how you either grow up in a Michael Jackson house or a Prince house?" says Winehouse, whose accent reveals her north London roots. "For me it was Michael Jackson. I could never decide whether I wanted to be Michael Jackson or marry him. I don't care what people say about him now because he's a f*cking genius. That's it- The End! He was robbed of his childhood, which is why he surrounds himself with children. When you're around little kids you can be a kid yourself and you can pretend that life is magic and you don't have to be one of those sweaty people going to work every day. I completely see what he's doing." Amy, 25

She defended him when the 2003 allegations came out, with loyalty and conviction, just as she had done with her music.

I feel so horrible about this... It's absolutely horrible.. we were looking so forward to her new album, and her getting out there sharing her voice with the world again. Despite her outbursts and all that had transpired through the windows of the news, she really was a sweet, loyal, caring person, who wasn't afraid of anybody. And she had a gift of a voice that cannot be duplicated, that was a one-time crooner. She wasn't a singer, she was a sanger. Her voice stuck out in the sea of singers that all sound the same and do the same things, and she brought the soul into our lives, or those who heard her. And more than anything, the real Amy loved her music. She cared about her music. My deepest condolences to her doting father, as well as her Goddaughter and loved ones. Thanks Amy, for reviving the talent needed in music today to really matter for such a short time, and for caring so much about sharing it with us. RIP girlfriend. I hate to see you go. xox :heart :bluecry
