Oh my god. It shouldn't be a shock I suppose but what a terrible, sad news. I've been a fan since her first album and despite the mess she's been in for the last few years I still held out hope she'd sort out her life. RIP

She was a great singer. I was really bummed when I heard the news. I had hoped she would be able to turn her life around. But, after seeing this recent performance on youtube it was clear that she was gone.

‪Amy Winehouse - Back To Black (Live Belgrade 2011 drunk or stoned), RIP 23-07-2011.mp4‬‏ - YouTube

Why her stupid management let her perform or try to perform like this pisses me off!

The publicity. It was her image, and it was the reason I could never let myself listen to her music. I just felt like she was exploiting it and even more so the record company or her people or whatever were exploiting her. I realize that it's ultimately up to her to do something about her lifestyle, but it just doesn't feel like there was any catalyst to do so as long as the image of her as a bad girl was working (not that it really was over the last couple of years)

I cheated myself like I knew I would.
I told you I was trouble.

Is this the least shocking celebrity death of all time?

What a waste of talent.

What a stupid stupid idiotic waste!!!!

I blame everyone around her.....

If she had any kind of family or real friends, they would have seen her horrible performance in Serbia, dragged her from the stage, handcuffed her, forced her into a car and locked her away in a forced rehab center until she got clean. I'm sick of celebrties with more money than god who have every advantage money can buy and then stick their money either up their nose or in their arms.....27 is way too young to die but anyone with a brain could have seen this coming a mile away. In any case, RIP Amy - have a good time up there with your hophead role models and save a place for Lindsay...who's probably next.

I'm fed up and angry!!

Too soon?

I can remember when she heckled Bono during an acceptance speech at the Q awards in 2006. She was as rough as a badger's arse.

As far as Rehab goes it's been proven that the program works only if the addict wants it to work for them and that has nothing to do with fame, fortune, celebrity. As for those celebrity addicts they are victims of the lifestyle with anything they want within reach and at excess at any time with way too many enablers surrounding them. Amy even made it clear she wasn't going to rehab in song! She was a real hot mess in way too far over her head which really is a sad, sad shame.

It makes me angry to think after years of being a punching bag in the press that it takes the death of Amy Winehouse for her art and life to be treated with any amount of respect. For every slurred line or stumble paraded in newspapers or across the internet & tv there was a real person with real issues who's life and works were marginalized in order to exploit her sickness. What a shame.

This sums up my thoughts.
