Sad, sad news in the music world today — Amy Winehouse has been found dead in her Camden flat at the age of 27. As of now, there is no official word on the cause of death, but after reports (and photographic evidence) that the “Valerie” songbird was faring better after rehab, last month she appeared very much not recovered, slurring her words and acting belligerently intoxicated at a concert in Belgrade. (She cancelled the rest of that planned European tour.) This news does not come as a shock, but certainly is devastating given Winehouse’s obvious talent and early acclaim, winning five Grammys for 2006′s Back In Black.
Now we will never get that follow-up album we were so desperately hoping for.
Rest in peace, Amy.
