Amy Winehouse Found Dead
2011-07-23 by Kiran EMERITUS | 267 Comments

According to reports, singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her London home. The cause of death is as of yet unexplained.

The 27 year old had a history of drug and alcohol addiction and as recently as last month was booed off stage at a comeback gig for appearing severely intoxicated and unable to perform.

Obfuscation is talking about people on his Facebook, guys, which is understandable - it's easier to make a quip about Amy Winehouse than say something meaningful about what happened in Norway.

The news outlets are by far covering the Norway events much more heavily than Amy Winehouse, so they do have their priorities in order... still shitty that she never got back on her feet and it ended this way, though.

christ you're such a cunt. it doesn't matter what somebody contributed to society, a life is a life. she was a talented singer who lived a drug-ridden, sad life. she wasn't a murderer, nor was she in anyway an inherently bad person, she just had a drug problem. i suppose the death of homeless alcoholics and those living on welfare are also irrelevant seeing as they aren't "productive members of society". it's ok to not like her, I don't even like her, but it's incredibly disrespectful and pathetic to write the shit you're writing on an article about her death. keep it to yourself.

objectively speaking the events in Norway are 92 times more tragic, because 92 (at least) times more people died. but comparing the two is pointless. this is a music site.

i never liked her music much, but it's sad to see somebody have their career cut short

i really think the 27 thing is brought up way too much though... we are just more likely to notice that an artist died at 27 because we've been told about the curse...

there are plenty of up and coming musicians/young stars that have died at other ages, but the moment one dies at 27 it becomes an "add them to the list" kind of thing


thats my 2 cents at least

"I dont get you people, how can you care for someone you don't know...

wtf.. millions of people die everyday, or rape, murder and shit.

But now this bitch dies, so you guys say R.i.P..

what about all the other people who had no money, were born in shit..

you guys are fucking trolling."

Dude, I can't say RIP every bloody second for every single person that dies. You know man, it's life, and people die. It's just, not many people get recognized, and when they die only their friends and family care. I never cared for Winehouse, nor did I think she was all that great of a person. But, I still respect her, and it's still sad her life is gone. There are billions of people out there, many of whom are better people and live more honest lives than Winehouse. Well all have our demons to face, though, hers were drugs and alcohol. Other people face depression and suicidal tendencies, others have anger, others are addicted to sex because they feel as if it's the only worth people get out of them, others face disease, others are insane, some people murder, everyone lies, everyone cheats, and everyone sins. Life is one massive, sad, progression towards death for all of us. Just because someone may have had struggles in their life doesn't mean that they don't deserve respect. Get off of your pedestal and at least understand that this is a life, and it's a life lost. We all deserve death, no matter how good of people we are or aren't...

They expressly said here "hey, you guys know the rules here and we'll be watching because this is a popular piece of news. dont be idiots" yet you continue to be an idiot. I dont know how you're not getting it: it is disrespectful to tell someone it was a good thing anyone died, bar some incredibly extreme example.

HipsterHolocaust, thanks for proving my theory that anyone who uses the term "sheep" when talking about people is inherently awful. You say you could care less about Amy Winhouse, yet here you are. And did you ever think that, while I'm busy mourning the 90-some people who died in Norway, I can make room for one more person who died young?

Anyway, I wasn't a huge fan, but I did enjoy her stuff I happened to hear. The worst part of this is the fact that is ISN'T shocking. Because it's been expected, I (and many other people) have been waiting for this news for about 3 years now. So for three years the world has slowly been watching this young woman fall into oblivion. And I had forgotten until today that she was only 27, because she's aged so much in the last few years. Addiction is such an ugly thing, and it's too bad she couldn't beat it.

--Yeah because having a different opinion is totally a reason for banning a user.--

Posting that opinion like the childish little assholes that seem to come out of the woodwork for these kinds of news posts is.

--but Mods only do something when THEY think it's right.--

I have opinions on Amy, her music and drug users in general, but none of them are positive so I keep it to myself because I know this isn't the proper venue. That's what people do when they get all growed up... you'll see one day, hopefully. So stop with your bullshit.

Also, the Norway thing is tragic but that isn't what this news post is about so why would anyone expect that it should be the default topic here? If you want to talk about Norway, find a fucking news article on it. CNN lets you post comments too, go there.

While I understand that it's sad that she died (as it is when anyone dies), it is not tragic or shocking or surprising when someone who is notorious for drug and alcohol abuse dies.

Her problems were well documented and she refused to help herself. When someone refuses to change a negative behavior or practice as dangerous as her's then it's inevitable that they will eventually suffer the consequences. This is not a tragedy, its what happens.

Unless of course she didn't die of an OD like every rational person in the world suspects, and it was somehow a homicide, in which case I'll look like a true asshole. I'll take my chances though...

Just a thought, and regardless, RIP.

I'll go in a logical flowchart (minus the chart) method.
You said "no one's offered you drugs before" => implies that the person (who is presumably clean based on his high horse [whoo alliteration] attitude) is only clean because no one has offered him => seems to imply this person is not clean due to strength of character.

I always see someone who does drugs as a character flaw, just like being arrogant & other things. Thus, I see it as a character strength if someone is clean, and you cheapen it by saying said person is only clean due to circumstance

it's still a false dilemma, not all drug users go into a downwards spiral and many of them successfully stay clean after getting over their addiction. it isn't that she did drugs that she ruined her life, it was that she was irresponsible with them.

Back to the topic, I listened to "Rehab" and the song was almost self-parody. I feel there should have been some tinge of sadness listening to it, but there's something to be said about her blatant disregard for her life. It was bound to catch up with her.

@Fort23, maybe, maybe not. I guess from an oversimplified point of view, yeah it's possible.
But then again, assuming any given person didn't put themselves in the position to avoid ever using in the first place cheapens their character. My friend (and neighbor)'s brother (who is obviously also my neighbor and friend but he's a grade older) was a weed user (and dealer) I believe. I don't believe he was ever personally offered drugs, but that's only because he avoided any situation where it'd happen. (He ended up getting caught by his parents and is clean now, I think.)

The point of those comments (at least from me) was not to state my superiority over her.
At the end of the day, her drug use (and refusal to get help) caused her life to end prematurely (and obviously this is sad news, don't get me wrong. RIP again). And when you consider how defiant she was about it (just check her song), it's just sad that she threw it all away.

It has absolutely nothing to do with feeling superior to her or anyone similar to her.

During my days in the Hellenic Army as a soldier, I knew a colleague of mine who was crazy with Amy Winehouse.

The guy was literally brain washing me EVERY SINGLE DAY about how big Winehouse would be in the music business.

I'm sad for her death, as i would be sad for any person leaving this world, but I'm more sad about that friend of mine, who was a great fan of her work.



I can't quite figure out how her family didn't stop her from going under.....

Her parents should had tied her in a bed or something for like six months or a year feeding her properly, until she would get clean and sober....

It is simply beyond me and i don't quite buy her family's post-mortem regret.

They should had acted before the fire went out of control...

That's what parents/family are for.
