1983 - 2011
Grammy-winning singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her North London home of suspected drug overdose. In 2006, the singer took home five Grammy Awards for her multi-million-selling album, Back to Black. She had struggled with drug and alcohol addiction for years and had a recent stint in rehab this past May to prepare for her latest tour. The troubled singer had been in and out of rehab multiple times, even singing songs about how she would not go. Unfortunately today the Daily Mail broke the news that Amy Winehouse was found dead in her flat at the young age of 27. The Daily Mail report:
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.’
Okay, we all saw this coming and everyone knew this day was coming. It is no surprise... Amy Winehouse gave us some good posts over the years and that will be missed. Hopefully now she is going to the big rehab in the sky.
