Since shooting to stardom early on in her music career with her 2003 album Frank and later with hits like "Rehab" off 2006's Back to Black Amy has struggled with alcohol and drug addictions. Despite her personal problems, she won five Grammys for that album.

However, Amy's trips in and out of hospitals and rehabilitation centers, and her troubled marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil has brought her more infamy in recent years than fame and praise for her music.

Last month she attempted a comeback tour, but then pulled out after an appearance in Serbia where she seemed drunk onstage.

When Amy canceled her tour, her spokesman released a statement saying: "Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances. Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen."

As the news began to circulate on Twitter, even the British Prime Minister's wife Sarah Brown had a comment on Amy, says the BBC.

"Sad sad news of Amy Winehouse - great talent, extraordinary voice, and tragic death, condolences to her family," she tweeted.
