What a talent but what a waste

Not completely unexpected, but still sad none the less.

Maybe she's in a better place now??

Hopefully a more peaceful place Her life and addictions should be used as advertisement to support anti drug work

Don't shed any tears. Look at real people all around u and watch how they struggle and keep it together. For celebs it's a badge of immortality to die young but for runners it should be seen as the ultimate cop out.
The world is a crazy place but if u can lace up your shoes and get to a high point then take a good look around and u will know what it feels to be alive and grateful. Too many good people work too hard to stay with us for us to waste time on popstars that don't realise how precious a gift any talent is.
Sorry if that sounds harsh but u have to value life or yr life has no value!

Easy to say, GTC, but who knows whats going on in the mind of someone who's seriously addicted.... Amy Winehouse always struck me as a very talented* but troubled woman.... not a 'pop star' who courted celebrity; almost reclusive in some respects.

*talented, regardless of whether her music was to everyones 'taste' or not.

Lots of us have problems.  Just because hers were encouraged by the media doesn't make it any less sad than for any person who loses their life at a young age.  I find it particularly sad that people seem to think that she is unworthy of pity or sympathy just because she happened to be famous.

A friend of mine lost her life in February at the age of 22.  She led a similarly tragic life.  Just because she was a runner GTC, doesn't mean that I feel any differently about the loss of life. Yes, I grieved more for my friend because I knew her better, but thewy were both equally tragic situations.

She was famoous for being a mess.... Hardly a decent example. Waste of fresh air

Remember seeing some footage of her doing some recording when she was younger,no tattoos,loveley hair,she looked beautiful,and what a voice.

Saw her live at Old Trafford cricket ground a couple of years ago,she covered a couple of Specials songs which was right up my street. It's a shame what's happened but inevitable I suppose,she chose which path she was gonna follow unlike those poor people in Norway,that's a real tragedy.

Sorry had to smile at the 'Whitehouse' Was that Freudian?

Agree that it's sad, she did have a lot of talent and a great signing voice, just not the stability of personality to help her through.

No she was famous for being a very talented singer - and as a singer she is a very good example to anyone.    There are plenty of drug addicts and alcoholics - being one doesn't make you famous.   

Obviously she made some poor choices but she's paid the highest price for them.

She was famous for being an alcoholic, drug-addicted talented singer, not just a talented singer.
24/07/2011 at 20:13
It's the music that made her famous - unfortunately her addictions were played out in front of the world because of that.    Perhaps I should have written she was famous because of her talent as a singer.

Talented ??????????

Must change the batteries in my hearing aid then

25/07/2011 at 10:11
I have to say when she was on top singing form, her voice could send shivers down my spine - it had a "je ne sais quoi" that you rarely hear in any singer.

as a person, she was a mess

great shame she died so young - but not entirely unexpected under the circumstances which are still only speculation. the PM takes place today which will define the cause of her death but I suspect most of us will know what the outcome of that is. but we could be wrong

The one thing that has been posted around this morning that barely 24 hours before she died she had a full medical from her doctor who signed her off for being "well". Maybe it's just one of those things? (agree that she probably went straight out and bought more drugs than her body could take - but the PM will show the real cause). Sometimes you can only fight for so long before it all becomes too much.

She had an amazing talent for songwriting and that should be celebrated. Ultimately, she was someone's daughter and this is tragic for the pure loss of life so young.

Hear hear.

The ending seemed inevitable, given her history, but still very sad.

love is blind, and so true in her case, she was in the "right way" before she met her husband/ex not sure if they got divorced. she has always been a talent, and talent brings pressure! her pressure to be perfect, pressure from her surroundings, her relationship, music and other famous people was just too much to bare. no excuse, but not everyone is strongwilled and will be swayed into making decisions not always right.

she did try to better her self, tried so many times rehab, these were calls of help, which i think were being ignored by the people around her. we can mourn a great singer and talented performer, but her peers, family and friends around her who could of helped her should feel very guilty for not doing enough.

influence is very powerful for someone who is under pressure, depressed and trying to prove they can stand on their own two feet.
