Amy Winehouse has passed away at age 27

Singer Amy Winehouse is dead at age 27. I don’t think that’s a surprising statement – that it happened sooner rather than later. She had immense talent, but in the later stage of her life she was clearly not sober. It may seem like I’m being insensitive to her passing, but my thoughts truly go out to her family and loved ones. What I am saying is that when someone is an addict, which there’s no arguing – she was, it isn’t surprising when they die. Amy had many more resources available to her to get sober than a typical person does, but she unfortunately could not beat her demons. She made awesome music. 2006’s Back to Black is an amazing Grammy-winning album. I am saddened that she’s gone and her gift will not be shared again. The cause of her death has not yet been released.

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. Her death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ by police. Winehouse was apparently ‘beyond help’ when paramedics arrived, according to Sky sources. Two ambulance crews arrived at the scene within five minutes and a paramedic on a bicycle also attended, according to a spokeswoman. ‘Sadly the patient had died,’ she added. 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.’ SOURCE
