Celebs React To Amy Winehouse’s Tragic Death Via Twitter [PHOTOS]
This weekend, the music scene lost yet another talented performer when eccentric and oft misunderstood Amy Winehouse died of what is assumed to have been a drug overdose. However, no drugs have been found in her system as of yet, leaving her death a mystery. Alone in her bedroom in her London apartment, Amy was believed to have been dead for at least six hours before her security guard discovered her lifeless body on her bed. Unfortunately, paramedics could do nothing to revive the fallen star.
At only 27 years old, the talented stars life has been cut entirely too short. Many friends, fans and family members are left wondering if the music industry is to blame. Amy is now among the relatively hefty list of rockstars and musicians who have passed away at the too young age of 27, deeming her a member of “Club 27.” Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison share this same membership, all bonded together by their tragic deaths at twenty seven years old. Could this rough and wild industry be the curse to blame?
DJ Moby, who is the last person she shared a bill with at Belgrade’s Tuborg Festival, insists that the music industry is not at fault. A former addict himself, Moby says: “No one had to force me to drink and take drugs and no one else could have led me to get and stay sober. It’s sometimes too easy to point fingers when circumstances dramatically go awry, but as an addict, I’m ultimately responsible for my own decisions, no matter how benign or tragic the consequences.” (via The Hollywood Reporter).
The music scene will miss Amy’s jazzy songs, catchy beats, and one-of-a-kind voice. Her death serves as a permanent reminder that life is too short. We hope that anyone else who may be suffering from addiction will learn from Winehouse’s tragic demise and seek help for their own addictions. With the entertainment industry reeling from the loss, some celebs took to their Twitter accounts this weekend to express their condolences and remember the singer for her bubbly personality and talent. Here are what some of her friends are saying:
