Amy Winehouse Found Dead: Age 27
« on: July 23, 2011, 02:25:18 pm »
As tragic as this is, I think most people can say they saw it coming and expected it.

RIP Amy.

It is sad news, but it wasn't really a big surprise.

Requiescat in pace, Amy.

I just heard about this!  It's sad.  She was so young.  :(

Sadly, I knew her better from her intoxicated exploits than her music.  What a shame to die so young and with so much potential.

Dito.
Honestly, I said for a few months now, that I'm waiting to hear this kinda sad news.

OK, I'm not going to be popular for saying this, but I'm only sorry for her family.She had everything and literally blew it all. Yes, she had problems with addiction, but she was also given everything that she needed to help her stop. She didn't want to. It is incredibly difficult to help someone who won't help to help themselves. This isn't just because I don't rate her as a singer, which I don't, but more to do with the fact that she had choices. She had so many chances to do something about her problems, with so much support, and she refused. It's very hard to have sympathy at this point.

What a shame. The 27 Club claims another. It is such a shame to see someone of such talent and capabilities leave this way. She was born just a few days before me.

I honestly couldn't have said it better, I feel sorry for her family and those that cared for her but that's where i have to draw the line.

Now that you mention it, the fact that she never wanted help seems to make the situation at least a bit more tragic.  From some of the reports I've been reading,  she pretty much pushed her family away so I can only imagine how they're taking it.

Couldn't agree more, actually.  She did blow it, by her own choices.  My sadness isn't for her so much as the people who did care about what happened to her. It's a terrible feeling to watch someone go down that road, knowing you can't do a thing to stop their self-destruction.
