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.

AS a celebrity myself none of our fans can ever seem to understand what the lifestyle is truly like being in the public's eye always under the microscope etc. After we tour i cannot ever come down without the aid of some substance weather it legal or not. I simply cannot begin to tell you the challenges many of us famous people face. And without the fans we are nothing yes we all know this even the ones who try to come across "hard" but I can tell you this I was once a young man with idols through out my child hood just like you all. However once a certain amount of fame is reached you cannot even go out in public without anyone snapping you picture etc. But I really just wish you all could be a little more sensitive to the ones who do die of drug use none of us ever said when, or if I ever become famous I want to have to depend on drugs to help cope with the masses. Its not any of your faults its just something we cannot explain until your there. The only thing I can say is that there is a line in a song by Super Tramp cliche as it may sound but its called take the long way home and the line is "And when you're up on the stage, it's so unbelievable,unforgettable, how they adore you,
But then your wife seems to think you're losing your sanity,
oh, calamity, is there no way out?
Does it feel that you life's become a catastrophe?
Oh, it has to be for you to grow, boy.
When you look through the years and see what you could
have been oh, what might have been,
if you'd had more time. You can take it for what its worth but when we wrote those lyrics we were trying to explain what it was really like always on the road. And after all we are not different than you we are all human beings who suffer and have happy times. But no one ever seems to understand when one of us turns to a drug or medication to come down from it all I assure from Elvis to Michael, to Amy none of them were or should be viewed as objects that are immortal We are just human beings that's it. Sorry to ruin some of your views of who we are but that's all we really are.......
