What a pity .... her talents could be used in many fields... But she just ruined her life and I don't sorrow for such a human.

I read about the Norway tragedy on the Internet news, yet I only heard of AW's death through someone's post on Facebook. I'm just glad that the world cares for the loss of innocent lives and not about some loony who decided to cheat death and skip rehab; do I sound cruel? Well let's face it, she may have talent, but that's no pardon for drug abuse.

People will remember you in one way or another; positive or negative. The only tragedy in AW's death is that she'll be remembered for her substance abuse and only fans of hers will remember that she had talent.

i mean just 27. its really sad when such talented young people loose a grip on their life. i mean take Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain etc. all legends...gone in the prime of their life. sad really.

They all died aged 27. She's now part of the 'Stupid Club', as it's become known.

To be honest I was never really much of a fan anyway, but I didn't really feel much emotion considering over 80 innocent people had been shot dead in Norway just a few days before.

I don't understand this apathy. Is her life worth less than those people's?
You could say she chose her death but you don't know what lead her to drugs and once you get to that point it's really hard to quit or stay off them once you do.
She did go to rehab and they okayed her to be an outpatient. Obviously that didn't work.

IMO she does belong to the 27 club. People take her talent lightly because she was of this generation. It's just like when people think that the old days were better (ie artists made better music back then but today it's all trash).

I'm not saying I think her life is worth less than someone else's, and of course we still don't really know what caused her death. I felt saddened that a life had been lost, but I think it shows just how much celebrity culture has taken over our lives.

Yesterday, I signed into Facebook to find over a dozen "OMG AMY WINEHOUSE " posts within two minutes. Over the past few days, I've only seen one regarding the incident in Norway.

It just makes me a little sad to think that people are prepared to mourn over a celebrity who potentially ruined her own life, but not dozens of innocent and yet perfectly un-famous civilians.

This is a pretty unfortunate end to an immensely talented singer like her. Maybe other people should learn that drugs aren't that forgiving.

Rest in peace Amy Winehouse.

EDIT: The Norway blasts were also a pretty unfortunate incident as well. However, they are completely unrelated to this matter. I do mourn the death of innocents, and Amy Winehouse was a drug addict - Not a terrorist who don't deserve mercy and compassion.

For some reason I only understood that song after she had died. =/
I feel sorry for her, she had a very unique voice.

To be honest when I heard the news there was no emotion from me.

Ok she was talented yes, but she ruined her own life by acting the way she did and of course being an alcoholic and drug user at same time.

So when the news came, I kinda shrugged my shoulders and walked on. It was only a matter of time it would happen anyway.

Sort of the same reaction I had as soon as I heard the news.

Seeing as she lived a very troubled life, I wasn't very surprised that the end was nearly there for her. Having said, she had lovely music and I'm sure it'll live on forever.
