What a sad ending - such a shame that she couldn't be saved from her addictions

Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?

It's initially shocking... and then not. Still, you don't REALLY think it's going to happen.
I met her a few times in 2008; I used to live in Camden (where she lived) literally two streets down from her. We used to drink in the same pub, so I'd seen her many times; it was right around the time of "Back to Black". The time which sticks out to me most was one weekday afternoon; she was literally stumbling around the place in a pair of TINY denim hot pants, mumbling to herself. She came up to me and told me I had wicked hair (at the time I had a blond mohican) and then just walked behind the bar and helped herself to a drink. She was barefoot and looked like she hadn't washed in about a week. Of course, at the time it was AMAZING. I remember telling all my mates that "Amy Winehouse thinks I have amazing hair" Now I look back, it was a sad, sad sight... (her, not my hair.)
RIP Amy - what a wasted talent.

Complete waste of a life and such incredible talent. But the saddest thing is that this was so utterly predictable.
she was supposed to have a concert in Poland next Saturday, before the whole tour was cancelled...and I was going to see her live...
I expected such news, but deep inside I had a little hope that she would overcome her addiction(s)...
I have no problem admitting I read it regularly. It's my "Don't have to think/read simple stories with lots of pictures" when I'm eating my breakfast. Not interesting in gossip so much, but they do have quite a few interesting news stories usually. Of course they try to pretend they're not a tabloid quite a bit, which makes me chuckle.
Anyway, I saw the news about Amy Winehouse on FSU. I have no patience for hardcore addicts but nevertheless it's a very sad story. R.I.P.

I'm huge fan of hers, and it's devastating she couldn't get her life together. Such a talent.

She's gone to the great rehab in the sky...
One of the few female singers I actually listen to. The music industry had already moved on to Amy replacements and yet I was still hoping somehow she would turn her life around... I guess they knew better. Seeing it coming doesn't make it any less sad, RIP.
Winehouse hasn't been a functioning musician for years. We've known for a long time that she had severe issues, and basically watched her slowly kill herself. So this is not a surprise at all, just sad.
God, I hope her dad doesn't find out at the airport waiting for his baggage or something.
She was probably the only modern young singer that was worth something
In Soviet Russia, the skaters lobbychick YOU.
I'm sure that it was on tv before all family and friends knew though, which is sad
