Amy's  death at the tender age of 27 echoes that of previous stars. 

Jezza says "Just remember that illegal drugs don't work and shorten your life. Although we could all be speculating at this time before the post mortem reports, but the odds are high that Amy Winehouse probably over dosed! R.I.P Amy , such a waste of raw talent xxx"

 "It turned out that Amy was "clean" at the time of death, her poor internal organs must have had enough of her past misuse and the toxins from her organ malfunctions probably finally killed poor Amy. God bless her and rest in peace xxx"
