Amy Winehouse

Grammy winner Amy Winehouse passed at age 27 on July 23. The British star was already dead when she was found in her London apartment. While the cause of her death was not immediately known, an autopsy later revealed that it was alcohol poisoning. The "Rehab" singer had a public history of drug and alcohol abuse, and she canceled her European comeback tour in June 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. "We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer," a statement from her U.S. record label read. "Our prayers go out to Amy's family, friends and fans at this difficult time."
