She was never very good at applying makeup.

Ah the good ole' internet. Where people make slights at others deaths that really shows how shallow and heartless they really are.

It's never a good thing when someone dies, but when a celebrity dies I will agree that they should not be commercialized to seem as if they were more important that anyone else's life. I hate everything that Lady Gaga is, but if she died, it would still be just as much a tragedy as any.

I didn't believe you. The last story TMZ had about her before this had her looking better.

#10 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

This guy I follow on Twitter (@MarylandMudflap) said the following, which sums things up real nicely I think.

Amy Winehouse dying is a scary reminder that Keith Richards might be a cyborg.

#11 Posted by ShaggE (6420 posts) -

Damn, she was only 27? The drugs really *did* fuck her up...  
 
RIP. 

#12 Posted by Random88 (284 posts) -

I've got plenty of jokes to make about this but wont, that would just be in poor taste.  I will say this though.  I've never liked Amy Winehouse as a person nor do I much care for her music.  However it is a shame for someone to die so young.  She was only 27, that's not much older than I am. 

#13 Posted by crusader8463 (14419 posts) -

Was she someone important?

#14 Posted by TEHMAXXORZ (1199 posts) -

I really didn't like her music or her at all, but I really don't think she deserved it...

#15 Posted by Slaker117 (4838 posts) -

You know, that's pretty sad, but I can't say I'm surprised.

Shame, she had a lot of talent. Wonderful voice.

#18 Posted by Delta_Ass (3276 posts) -

I think we all saw this coming.

#19 Posted by EuanDewar (4892 posts) -

Not exactly surprising but still a shame, certainly liked a couple of her songs.

#20 Edited by MachoFantastico (4617 posts) -

Not exactly shocking news is it, apparently she had been a mess for a while now.

That said, she was talented and threw it all away with drugs and drink.

Hugs not Drugs.

#22 Posted by TooWalrus (13167 posts) -

I don't know... who that is.

#23 Posted by Bucketdeth (8007 posts) -

Sad that she had such potential but the drugs and alcohol consumed those chances.

#24 Posted by smitty86 (698 posts) -

Like many I'm not surprised but it is still sad to see such a waste of talent. Now watch her label finally get out that 3rd album she was to have been working on forever and it turns out to be amazing.

#25 Posted by Extreme_Popcorn (842 posts) -

It's that she's dead, I'd never wish harm on anyone but I find it a bit sad that a person who released one half decent album 5 years ago and then proceeded to kill themselves with drink and drugs is a more important story to the media than 91 people being murdered in Oslo.

#26 Edited by MattyFTM (14368 posts) -

Not particularly surprising. It's terrible to say, but she brought it upon herself. In a world where we have innocent teenagers being gunned down by a neo-nazi, I find it hard to feel much sympathy for someone dying like this.

I'm sorry if you actually think that, since the Norway shootings have gotten a tremendous amount of coverage and far more than a story first reported an hour or so ago. The media is more than capable of handling several stories at once.

I don't really care, never liked her music & she kind of had it coming.

#29 Posted by dudeglove (7758 posts) -

As a way of remembering her, every single radio station will now play her songs constantly all day for the next month.

My thoughts exactly.
#31 Edited by JCTango (1361 posts) -

Dang, didn't expect that to happen to her at such a young age...  Despite it all, I personally thought she had talent in her singing voice.

#32 Posted by Azteck (7449 posts) -

It's disgusting how people make jokes about her death. It's so incredibly tasteless that I can't even comprehend it.

#33 Edited by alternate (2696 posts) -

I think you can at least feel a modicum of sympathy for both - be it innocent victims or druggies, it isn't really one of the other.
 
I remember she used to be on TV here in the UK a fair bit after her first album was a minor hit but before her second made her international.  She seemed really quite sweet and attractive jewish girl, if a bit eccentric with the make-up and the beehive wig.  Then she found a lot of fame and money very quickly, got all the tattoos, piercings, breast implants and went on the heroine diet.

The question is, will you be?

another MTV female "singer".. 
 
RIP, but i won't miss her. the more typical pop female singers disappear, the better (not by dying though, just by.. disappearing.) 
In other words, i wish this wasn't death but rather a retirement so i can say FUCK YES

Might be? I think we're well beyond that at this point. 
#40 Posted by BraveToaster (12590 posts) -

Hendrix, Cobain, Winehouse... what's with musicians dying at the age of 27?

#41 Posted by Grilledcheez (3947 posts) -

She was pretty talented, but her lifestyle was extremely rocky.

#42 Posted by SefaRed (122 posts) -

That's sad to hear. There was talk of her making a comeback too. She had real talent.

#43 Posted by SquadBroken (280 posts) -

Watch how quickly the media ditches Norway for this.

Only 27. Poor girl.

Really? Amy Winehouse was never that big. ODB was much bigger and his death was just a flash in the pan. I don't see this being breaking news.

It's always sad when things like this happen. This is why I'll never do hard drugs.

when people keep insisting you go to rehab, its probably a good idea that you go and get clean (for good)
