Winehouse silenced



It finally happened.

I remember reading a newspaper article back in the fall of 2007 about Amy Winehouse and the fact that someone had started accepting predictions as to when the troubled singer would die. Their unfortunately-named website -- www.whenwillamywinehousedie.com -- was offering a free iPod to the person who correctly predicted the day of Winehouse’s death. It seemed like only a matter of time back then, simply because her lifestyle consisted mainly of drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, and domestic abuse.

Nearly four years after first reading about that site, it looks like someone has now won that coveted iPod.

Yes, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home today, and the saddest part of all is that we all saw it coming, though many of us figured it would have happened long ago.
