Amy Winehouse was found dead Saturday morning in her London home, police said. She was only 27. Her musical talent eventually was overshadowed by her erratic stage appearances, drunken fights, stints in hospital and rehab clinics.
Police confirmed that a 27-year-old female was pronounced dead at the home in Camden Square northern London; the cause of death was not immediately known. London Ambulance Services said Winehouse had died before the two ambulance crews it sent arrived at the scene.
“I didn’t go out looking to be famous,” Winehouse told the Associated Press when “Back to Black” was released. “I’m just a musician.”
