The troubled singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home. According to the Wall Street Journal, authorities have not yet determined the cause of death. She was only 27 years old.
Last week American Power posted a video of Winehouse getting booed off stage because she was so intoxicated. At the time I thought it was pretty sad and wondered what would happen to this woman. What a shame.

Update: The Daily Mail has more:
Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in London.
The Back To Black singer was found at the property by emergency services at 3.54pm. Her death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ by police.
Winehouse was apparently ‘beyond help’ when paramedics arrived, according to Sky sources.
Sources have also claimed Winehouse’s death was due to a drug overdose.
According to that same article Winehouse had cancelled all scheduled concerts after the incident noted above to recover. There’s also a quote from Winehouse’s mother saying she expected her daughter to die before her time.
Update: Here’s video of what was probably Winehouse’s last appearance on stage. She danced while Dionne Bromfield sang “Mama Said.”
