    I'm sure you've all heard about this sad, sad news. She was a music legend and although we may remember her for her troubled life, this story really hit me hard and got me quite upset.
    She was obviously very desperate for a long time and although she had the most help she could possibly get from her family, friends and management team; she still struggled and her life ended in a bitter way.
    It just shows, money and fame can't buy you happiness or your health.
    R.I.P Amy.

    She dug her own grave.
    Sad to see talent and a life go to waste.

      her family and friends couldn't stop her..she died at the same age as others in the music field-Joplin, Hendrix,Morrison.Isn't that odd?
      isn't there a way to force someone into rehab?

        She just went to rehab in May.  Unfortunately, unless someone commits a crime and is sentenced to rehab, there isn't a way to force an adult to go.  You can hospitalize someone as a danger to themselves or others, but they are only subject to a 72-hour hold in the psych ward.  It's got to be the addict's choice anyway, or it won't stick.

        I love what Russell Brand said about the whole thing.  "We need to review the way society treats addicts – not as criminals but as sick people in need of care."  I hope we all take this sad event as an opportunity to examine our attitudes towards addiction (including the casual tolerance and even glamorization that takes place for our celebrities).

        RIP Amy.

        We all make our own choices and have to live with the consequences of those choices.  She knew the hazards of her lifestyle as she had had trouble before.  Yet she continued down that path even though many consueled her against it.  I'd be willing to bet that there are more issues beneath the surface that the general public know little or nothing about.
        She had talent, yet her life is worth no more nor any less than anyone else's.  She just happened to be a public figure.
        Best not to mourn her death, but rather celebrate the good in the life that she lived.
