    • There are a lot of elements that get to me in this “case”. I’m not equally affected by everybody’s early departure but this one has something so uncanny. Nobody is suprised it happened but nobody could help her.

  1. Lets be totally honest here, Amy Winehouse was not exactly the roll model for all of the wonderful young people here in the U.K. and as for her ” talent ” that everyone keeps raving on about I think is at least very questionable ?

    • Let’s not hope that she was a role model, no, more something like a cautionary tale but that doesn’t change the fact that she was in pain and probably, given the possibility, would have preferred to leave this planet in a different way.

  2. What I think is so sad is that this does NOT come as a surprise. How come no one could properly help her, when it was so painfully obvious that she was in need of help?

    • Exactly my point. Despite everything that has been said, I can’t help thinking that no one managed to find the right approach and that to a certain extent some people wanted her to be like this. Not much different from a gladiator. The masses cheered every time she went down.

  3. One more name to the “died-at-27” list. She’s in good company with Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimmy Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Heath Ledger.

    Such a waste for them all (and for us)

    • I don’t know if you were able to watch the video or know it but it is eerie considering she is dead now… I hoped she would somehow get out of this… Sad that she didn’t.

        • I find it a bit shocking that people always think it is easy to stop and addiction or that people want to be like that. The slow train wreck is how it felt… She moved and moved to her inevitable early death.

  4. I didn’t know she died!! I am not much of her music fan but death is a sad thing even though we didn’t know much about that person.

    What happened?

    • It doesn’t seem to be clear, she was found dead in her apartment. Since she was into drugs and drank much too much it can be assumed that her heart and body couldn’t cope anymore. An accidental overdose might also be possible. The autopsy report isn’t out yet.
