Amy Winehouse

Grammy winner Amy Winehouse was just 27 when she passed away. The British star was found in her London apartment on July 23, 2011 and the cause of death was ultimately ruled accidental alcohol poisoning. The "Rehab" singer had a public history of drug abuse, and she canceled her European comeback tour in June of that year after being booed off stage in Belgrade, Serbia, when she reportedly appeared too drunk to perform properly. The beehive-sporting songstress was married to Blake Civil-Fielder from 2007 to 2009. "Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives," her loved ones said in a statement at the time of her death. "We are coming together to remember her, and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time."
