Amy, Amy, Amy.
I’m not even sure what else to say that hasn’t already been said over the course of this tragic weekend. Amy Winehouse’s death is incredibly sad but I believe even her most diehard fans would have a hard time calling it surprising. It was the news you never wanted to hear, even though the headlines resounded with awful inevitability.
It’s hard to know what else to say other than it’s heartbreaking, and so many of us fans around the world were rooting for her to get it together. To stop throwing all of that talent to waste. To find stability and happiness and enough love to fill the void that so clearly existed within her.
I hope wherever Amy Winehouse is now, she’s free of everything that weighed her soul down in her 27 years of life. I hope when she is remembered, it’s for the enormity of her talent and not of her appetites. I hope her music lives forever, and isn’t overshadowed by her membership in that tragic, romanticized club of musicians who left this life too early.
