So, so sad.
than the usual twitter rumour-fest.
Terribly sad if true.
It's all over Twitter, and Sky News are currently reporting it and 'taking a look her life'.
Part of the 27 club it seems.
Fairly gutted, always hoped she'd get it together and release some more music.
'taking a look AT her life'
This is definitely confirmed and true.
Am DJing tonight, better get a song of hers. Wonder what track....
Actually made me quite sad this. I know several people who know her and from what I'v heard it's definitely not from lack of trying to get her together in the past. Her own worst enemy.
was never a big fan of her music but she was very talented. Very sad indeed.
more over on the social board thread http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4298699
who deleted this thread, and why?!
I can only imagine why, and I dont like it one bit sir
that everyone who'd posted in it was actually vikram.
Cue a load of lazy, hateful twitter and facebook comments.

So long, Amy. RIP.
tha ant-winehouse brigade are out already though.
I mean, it's tragic but it's going she's going to be glorified like crazy.
As sad as the news was, the Twitter lunacy afterwards just makes me angry.
One tweet for example: Kelly Osbourne described Winehouse as one of her best friends, adding: "I cant even breath right my now im crying so hard." - commendable how she somehow managed to catch her breath and wipe the tears away long enough to take to Twitter though.
Good on her... very brave and now we're all worried Kelly's okay...
by reporting tweets from Paris Hilton and one of the Kardashians.
thought she'd sorted herself out.
Re Twitter, well celebs will be celebs, but what really gets on my wick when something like this happens is when all the sad little normals come out of the woodwork to have a go. Guess every famous person who dies before their time on account of their lifestyle choice validates their own pathetic conformist lives.
Me, I'm really sad that a troubled young woman has seemingly ended her own life tragically early.
Hell of a voice, too.
and rush-released, barely-recorded third album in time for Q4
but fact the 80 children who got shot in Oslo is now overshadowed by a 27 year old effectively killing herself is even sadder.
suddenly describing her as the best thing ever and suddenly calling her a misunderstood genius of her time.
and someone dying is sadder than something being overshadowed anyway
didn't mean to '^this' this post
