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.

Meh, not shocking. I only feel sympathy for her parents because im sure her drug addiction hurt them terribly. Other than that, she did this to herself, people tried to help her and she didnt take their help. I'm surprised she didnt OD sooner. Honestly, I'm glad she is finally gone so I dont have to read horrible stories about her or see her ugly, cracked out face and skinny legs anymore. But I do feel for the parents. And dont worry, they wont be reading TMZ so we can be honest. #truthhurts

For people writing what a waste and when will people learn, have you ever actually known someone with a drug addiction?

Do you think people want to be drug addicts?

Addicts live incredibly troubled lives and try with everything they have to kick their habits.

Imagine have an urge in you that was stronger than everything you have experienced in your life. Stronger than the will to eat and stronger at times than the will to live. In concert with that, throw in some psychological issues and then come back and talk to me.

I was not even a fan of Amy Winehouse but, this is incredibly sad.

Feel free to step out of your glass houses and try to show some empathy.

Winehouse's death can only be viewed as the conclusion of an already needlessly tragic life.

I wish I could say I was surprised, but it was easy to see that she was either kick the addictions or die.......obviously the latter prevailed.

So sad and somewhat expected. Her talent alone was not enough to keep her alive. At least now she is at peace.
