Singer Amy Winehouse Found Dead
A great deal of talent was lost over the weekend when troubled British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home at age 27. Soon afterward, fans began to lay flowers and gather around her home to pay their respects. Reports in the media suspected drug overdose as the cause of death but at this point in time, no post-mortem examination has taken place and officials emphasize that it would be inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death until more information is known. She will be missed. Her unique style left an impression on the fashion industry and Amy is credited with turning her beehive hair style, heavy eyeliner and exposed bra straps into fashion fads that continue to surface from time to time on the style scene.
