  1. Twitter going mad with reports of her death and also confirmed on Sky. A shame.

    I wonder if the Police tipped them off for a 'consideration' ...

    Although I'm sadly unsurprised, this has really knocked the wind out of me.

    Apparently everyone on Face***k an Tw*tter knows, but her father hasn't been notified yet ...

    Multiple organ failure, poor woman, although her heavy drug use must have contributed to it, it's a great shame that such a talent has been lost.

    That I doubt.
    Very harsh HBF.
  14. Possibly so - the 'Telegraph' reports that he is en route to the USA...
    Cause of death = unsuspicious but believed to be related to overdosing on drink/ drugs - unsurprising but a great pity that she couldn't turn her life around with all that talent.

    Winehouse was only pronounced dead at 3.54pm today. Not long to notify all her next of kin is it?

    dads on route to the states or somewhere, so wont be on the Internet/phone easy.

    Guessing they will contact the pilot as her dad will be in for a media scrum the second he steps off the plane.
  17. A tragic waste of a young life and a great talent.

    Oh Dear. Great singer but has just been making a fool of herself for the last few years. What a shame.

    Indeed, very sad waste of an amazing talent. But, having seen that footage of her performance in Serbia, it comes as no surprise. What I find shocking is that nobody seemed to be able to help her - such a pity.
  20. Her poor parents. :-(
