And songstress Kelly Clarkson took the time to write a particularly poignant message:

“I heard the news about Amy Winehouse. I’m incredibly sad. I didn’t know
her but I met her a few times and got to hear her sing before she blew
up. She was a beautiful and talented girl. I’m angry. What a waste of a
gifted person. What a shame she saw no hope and continued living her
life in that manor. I have been that low emotionally and mentally and
that is overwhelming. I keep asking myself why some of us are spared and
the others are made examples. I’m very angry and sad. I don’t know why
it’s bothering me so much. Sometimes I think this job will be the death
of us all, or at least the emotional death of us all. Maybe that is why
as a little kid in sunday school I learned that God didn’t want false
gods or idols. I thought it was terribly selfish of God as a child but I
think I get it now. He didn’t want us following people or things that
are imperfect and not so much for the followers but for the gods and/or
idols who will never be what everyone wishes or needs them to be because
we are made imperfect. He knew we wouldn’t be able to handle the
pressure, the shame, the glory, or the power the spotlight brings. I am
distraught. I am also extremely grateful and thankful for the people who
love me and support me. Without such amazing friends and family who
knows where I’d be. My thoughts and prayers are with her friends and
family. I am so sorry for your loss. I pray for peace in your hearts.”
