Amy Winehouse visited rehab for treatment most recently in May of this year, but friends of the singer openly worried for her. "Her drinking is totally out of control. Amy is constantly out of control on vodka," they said. "She is rattling about at home in north London drinking herself into oblivion. Three times this week she has been so drunk she passed out."

I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsGet

I feel very sorry that celebs have so much in front of them but they can't even see what they have until it's gone . I work with many people such as stars and they are your average person that have problems. Amy was one of my favorite artists. I wish she could have just focused more on her career and not get cought up with the rock star life . I wish I could have worked with her one day . She was so talented and even more so if she wasnt under the influence constantly.

Alcohol the disease? how about grow up and quit or like other posters said GO TO REHAB people need to be held accountable for their actions not just felt sorry for because they don't make the correct choice.

I guess that's the age the great ones die at. Jim Morrison Died, July 3, 1971(1971-07-03) (aged 27). Janis Joplin, the rock singer, was found dead in her Hollywood apartment. She was 27 years old. (Jimi) Allen Hendrix, born Nov. 27 1942, was only 27 years old when he died on Sep.18, 1970.

Amy Winehouse was such a troubled young woman, I can't say this surprises me. But it's incredibly sad. She was so talented. Sigh.. drugs are bad.
