Just in – “Singer Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in Camden, north London, at the age of 27, police have confirmed.
Officers were called by the ambulance service to an address in NW1 just after 4pm today.
“On arrival, officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene,” a police statement said.”
It may not be that shocking, but still, like so many other young artists that seem to be on this path – when the moment finally comes – it actually is sort of shocking in the sheer finality of it all.
Also kind of weird is that she left at the age of 27 – joining Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, and a host of other rock stars – very strange.
RIP, Amy Winehouse.
