Amy Winehouse dead at 27

Johnny Blagrove and his girlfriend Cara Burton admitted offering to supply drugs to singer Amy WInehouse.

British singer Amy Winehouse, whose hit single “Rehab” became the anthem
for troubled celebrity culture, has been found dead at her home in
north London, Sky News reported on Saturday.

Police said they had found the body of a 27-year-old woman at a home in
Camden Square, north London, after being called by ambulance services
around 1500 GMT.

“Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death at this early
stage. It is being treated as unexplained,” a police spokesman said. A
spokesman for the singer could not immediately confirm she had died.

Police had cordoned off the leafy street outside Winehouse’s home in
Camden, where around 20 onlookers had already gathered along with media
photographers and camera crew.

Winehouse was born on September 14, 1983, to a Jewish family with a
history of jazz musicians. She was discovered by soul singer Tyler James
at the age of 16 and in 2003 her debut album “Frank” was released, to
general acclaim.

Her second album “Back to Black” was released in October 2006 and reached the No. 1 spot.

The album’s hit single “Rehab” contained the line: “They tried to make me go to rehab. I said ‘no, no, no.’”
