92 innocent people dead in Norway, yet every news channel is dominated and no doubt will be for days over the death of a smack head who refused help from everyone :ugh:

I feel for her family

It is plain some talented peeps cannot cope with the limelight she joins a regrettably long list.

They tried to make me go to rehab, I said, "No, no, no"
Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know
I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine
He's tried to make me go to rehab, I won't go, go, go


Let's hope some of her young fans who watched her do drugs on stage will now realize doing drugs ain't so cool after all.

Before I saw this thread, I started another which I have since deleted.

As has been stated before, this news pales in comparison to the tragedy in Norway, but I doubt it surprises many.

Nevertheless, it is a sad testimony to talent (and success, since I suppose the first part may seem questionable to some) gone awry, and yet another pointless loss of human life.

Twenty-seven years old. What a shame, what a waste, even more so since most (if not all) of her troubles were self-inflicted. After all her travails, one wonders if she had not been looking forward to the "sweet, sweet sleep of death."

First thought that came to mind was "Janis Joplin".

A terrible role model for her fans.
Her ability to escape responsibility for her actions was a disgrace.

For just a small percentage of the drug related acts she was involved in, any one of her fans would be in chokey !!

Sad nevertheless !

She died of self-inflicted drug abuse, like that Jackson creature. The only thing in her favour is that she wasn't suspected of improper behaviour with minors.

Amy Winehouse was once quoted as saying she has no intention of giving up drugs, and intends to 'die young and leave a pretty corpse.'
Turns out she was half right.
