Amy Winehouse, age 27, found dead

Sad, but not really unexpected and perhaps that is the tragedy.

British singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in north London.

Most of the publicity surrounding Amy Winehouse involved not her amazing vocals and range in which she could carry her tunes, but her substance abuse and mental health issues. In an October 2010 interview Winehouse said she had been drug free for three years saying “I literally woke up one day and was like, ‘I don’t want to do this any more.’” Her statement however met much controvery as it seemed she was struggling on more than one occasion.

Either way, when someone dies at such a young age it is still a tragedy to see, especially when they had such talent.

Right now the media is reporting that officials are treating the death as unexplained.
