Amy Winehouse Dead
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.
"Winehouse famously battled addiction to drugs and alcohol and was in and out of rehab several times throughout the years.

Last month, Winehouse canceled her European tour after a performance in Serbia where she seemed completely out of it.

She was 27.

People on here saying that this is a surprise and that she was sh#t is ridiculous. She had amazing talent if you ever gave her music a chance. This most important thing is that DRUGS turned her into a mess, and THIS is what happens to the lost.

Oh, so she wants to be a Jim Morrison copycat, huh? I hope to hear eulogies from the people who enabled and supplied the drugs and booze during her funeral. That would be hilarious!

Very sad, but not surprising. Some are destined to burn out, not fade away.
