If only she’d given us some sort of sign, some sort of warning. Five years of perpetually looking she was walking on a waterbed just isn’t enough, goddammit! Via TMZ:
Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment in London today … TMZ has confirmed.
A press release from the Metropolitan Police, which doesn’t specifically name Winehouse, says:
“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.”
And by unexplained they mean, “Drugs. It’s gonna be drugs.” So, look, let’s not pretend Amy Winehouse dying is the surprising part as much as you never really know when this kind of shit is gonna eventually happen even with giant flashing arrows pointing directly at a coffin with her name on it from the exact second she became famous. (Although, there was always a chance she was going to Keith Richards it.) What is sad, is that out of all the current drug addicts: Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, Courtney Love, Lady GaGa, Amy Winehouse was easily the most naturally talented, so of course, she cashed out at 27.
Rest in Peace, Wino. You had a set of pipes.
