I’ll go back to black”
- Amy Winehouse, Back to Black
Troubled singer, Amy Winehouse, was found dead by a member of her security team this past Saturday, July 23rd, in her London home. Police sources have stated that no drugs were found in her apartment and that the cause of her death is non-suspicious, but still unknown. An autopsy is scheduled to take place today, Monday, July 25th.
Approximately 24 hours before Amy’s body was found at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Amy’s doctor visited her at her home, reports England’s Daily Telegraph. Reports say that the doctor has been visiting Amy on a regular basis to help her cope with the effects of years of drug and alcohol abuse.
An anonymous source has told the tabloid, The Sun, that the doctor had no trepidation regarding the singer after he left her apartment on Friday night, and that she has been having regular check-ups due to her poor health.
At the age of 27, Amy joins Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and many others in the tragic “27 Club,” which is comprised of famous musicians who have all died at the same age.
After the startling news of her death, my Facebook newsfeed was filled with Amy Winehouse status updates. Sadly, I saw many updates that said she had it coming, that she deserved it or “who cares about Amy when 93 people are dead in Norway?” Although the attacks in Norway are completely heartbreaking, there is also a family who is mourning the death of their beloved daughter. It saddens me to see status updates such as those listed above; I think my “friends” should have way more respect for the deceased and their loved ones.
