Amy Winehouse was found dead Saturday in her London home, police said. She was 27.
Police confirmed that a 27-year-old female was pronounced dead at the home in Camden Square northern London; the cause of death was not immediately known. London Ambulance Services said Winehouse had died before the two ambulance crews it sent arrived at the scene.
Last month, Winehouse canceled her European comeback tour after she swayed and slurred her way through barely recognizable songs in her first show in the Serbian capital of Belgrade. Booed and jeered off stage, she flew home and her management said she would take time off to recover.
It’s really sad to see someone with so much potential throw it all away. Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix all have an eerie connection with being great artists dying at the age of 27.
