Amy Winehouse Found Dead at 27
According to the Daily Mail, BBC and other outlets, troubled soul singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home today. She was 27. The cause of death is unknown.
The British-born recording artist became an international sensation with the 2006 release of her second album, Back to Black, which won five Grammy Awards. Winehouse's struggles with substance abuse were legendary. Indeed, one of her biggest hits, "Rehab," is about saying "no, no, no" to professional help for her addiction. Last month she canceled a European tour after she "seemed out of it" at a concert in Serbia.
Minutes after her death was announced, fans and friends took to Twitter to bid Winehouse farewell. Here are some of their reactions:
Nicki Minaj: Please tell me Amy Winehouse didn't die. Is this some sick joke?
Toure: Please miss me from all Winehouse dead jokes. This is tragic although not completely unexpected.
Chad Ochocinco: My condolences to the family and friends of Amy Whinehouse. Very talented and gifted artist R.I.P.
Anika Noni Rose: I hope Amy Winehouse has found some peace where she is. Your music was pretty boss.
Maxwell: REST IN PEACE AMY WINEHOUSE.
Amber Riley: My friends and I were having an Amy Winehouse listening session last night. Shed a tear this morning, so young and very talented. RIP Amy.
