With the path she was going down, this news was inevitable...still sad tho because she was so young:
Amy Winehouse, whose beehive hairdo, exaggerated cat-eye makeup and singular voice made her one of the best known female British singers of this century but who apparently was unable to overcome longstanding problems with drugs and alcohol, died Saturday at age 27.
She was found dead at her apartment in north London, according to Sky News. Police are treating her death as unexplained.
Winehouse had a long history of substance abuse, including not only alcohol but heroin and cocaine. As recently as June she had to cancel a planned 12-stop European tour after appearing drunk and struggling to remember her own lyrics at the tour's first stop in Belgrade, Serbia.
Prior to beginning the tour, she spent a week at the Priory Clinic in London, which offers treatment for addiction problems.
Though she met repeatedly with personal obstacles, Winehouse always believed she would be able to overcome them.
"If I am backed up against the wall, I'll kick the sh*t out of it," she said. "If you can't sort something out for yourself, no one can help you."
