Celebs tweet condolences for Amy Winehouse

As news about the death of British singer Amy Winehouse spread on Saturday, fans and fellow celebrities took to social media to mourn her passing.

DJ Sam Ronson, whose brother Mark helped put Winehouse on the musical map, tweeted "RIP Amy Winehouse" and lamented that "I'm not sure how anyone with a soul can make jokes about the passing of one of the most talented artists this generation will see."

Singer Ricky Martin tweeted "I just found out. I feel pain. I feel anger. Rest beautiful girl rest. You are free! #RIPAMY" while actress Jessica Alba tweeted "So sad about Amy Winehouse -she was so talented. Really tragic."

Demi Moore offered these words via Twitter "Truly sad news about Amy Winehouse. My heart goes out to her family. May her troubled soul find peace" while singer Colbie Caillat said "Amy Winehouse was one of the best singers I've ever heard, I am grateful to have seen her play live. My heart goes out to her family."

Pop star and Winehouse fan Rihanna tweeted "Dear God have mercy!!! I am SICK about this right now! #DearAmy." Seth Meyers said "Years ago [Jason] Sudeikis told me Winehouse's "Valerie" was as good a start-the-day song you'll hear. He was right. I'll miss her."

CNN's Anderson Cooper tweeted "Just heard a report amy winehouse has died. If true, such a waste of a great talent" and rocker Bryan Adams said simply "Dear Amy, you will be missed forever. All my love, RIP, Bryan."

    He called me Amy

    © Claudia D-G

    In muddy waters I've been swimming
    the only thing I knew, was singing
    moments were rare when I felt free

    I am poor Amy

    It was so dark, that muddy water
    without a man, a son, a daughter
    the earth was not my place to be

    I'm poor rich Amy

    All days and night I learned the fight
    against myself, lost all my pride
    and no one wrapped his arms around me

    to call me Amy

    An Angel stands now in my door
    I'm happy like never before
    and he says baby, now you're free

    He called me Amy.

    It isn't that people are making fun of her death, I think it's sad but wasn't unexpected. The woman was a mess and unfortunately a life was cut short. She should have went to rehab... I'm pretty sure that when the results from her autopsy comes in we will see it was an over dose or something caused from drugs and alcohol.

    it's a shame how insensitive some people are...so i guess every one of you who has made a negative remark is without sin or error...no human is perfect...you have no right to judge this young lady for her human error...you too will be judged one day...R.I.H. MS. AMY WINEHOUSE

    Too bad she will never hear or see the tweets. Its a sad day for those remaining here especially for her family, however she now is resting, and those of here are the ones who will suffer. A beautiful voice, sadly silenced too early., but maybe now her demons will be gone.

    A couple of weeks ago when she was boo'd off stage for flubbing lyrics and calling out the wrong city name I thought "Wow. She has had so many chances to clean up...She won't be around much longer" I didn't know how right I was...I didn't expect it this soon, though. How sad. Such talent wasted with drugs and excess.

    Here is what Kelly Clarkson posted & it explains exactly the way I feel as well:

    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.

    This was my response back to Kelly Clarkson:

    Kelly, You couldn't have said this anymore beautifully & perfect.....I am sorry you are feeling this way but it is a part of life & she made these decisions herself. I, too wish she had chosen a different path in life since she was extremely talented & it was such a waste of life. However God has taken her from us for a reason or many reasons. I for one, don't questions His decisions. I also will keep her family in my prayers & hope that Amy finally can have some peace. I will pray for yours as well. Thank God you have not chosen this path & I believe you are a wonderful role model & your talents will not go to waste. I know that personally you have helped me in some of my darkest days through your heart & your music.....Again, thank you for posting this.

    "DJ Sam Ronson...lamented that "I'm not sure how anyone with a soul can make jokes about the passing of one of the most talented artists this generation will see." I'll tell you how...she set it up by making an ass of herself in public, a THOROUGHLY willing "butt" to any number of jokes. So, people were making fun of her LONG before she died. Then, she ends up a cosmic joke to those of us that WEREN'T CLOSE TO HER, because we see an IMMENSELY talented young girl making tons of money who decides to throw it all away. She never got it. She never knew how blessed she was. While most of us struggle to put on the table for our children, she's wasting 10's of thousands on white powders....So, to all the holier-than-thou that KNEW her, we understand YOUR pain, but don't get high and mighty with the distant strangers who saw one more of the lucky few who MADE IT, throw it all away, rendering them, ultimately, a joke.

    Amy was a good bowler, and a good singer. She was one of us. She was a woman who loved the outdoors, and bowling, and as a surfer explored the beaches of southern California from Redondo to Calabassos. And she was an avid bowler. And a good friend. She died as so many of her generation, before her time. In your wisdom you took her, Lord. As you took so many birght flowering young women, at Khe San and Lan Doc AND HILL 364! These young women gave their lives. And Amy too. Amy...who...who loved bowling.And so, Amy Donald Winehouse, in accordance with what we think your dying wishes might well have been, we commit your mortal remains to the bosom of the Pacific Ocean, which you loved so well.Goodnight, sweet princeses

    I first heard the breaking news on Twitter–you never know with all the hoaxes and false news nowadays I had really hoped this one was untrue.

    I really enjoy her sound and her music...she'll definitely live on forever in her recordings. 27 is really too young to die. Breaks my heart what addiction can do. RIP Amy!

    Am I one of the few that NEVER thought she was any good as a singer anyway.. Just the latest phew put up to be adored by the press. She didn't have talent as good as Lady Ga Ga . Couldn't play any instrument. Was always to HIGH to make her life anything of meaning. She WAS NO ROLE MODEL either. Other then you who are stunning obsessed by those who are pure lovers of themselves. This chic was headed down the 1 way path that lead to the dead end she finally occupies. Mission Accomplished AMY.. hope you are satisfied.

    I agree with Sam Ronson, "how can anyone with a soul make jokes about the passing of one of the most talented artists this generation will see." Amy had a gift and she was definitely taken too soon but we will forever have her music. Her Back to Back CD and the B-sides are a staple in my car. I know that she has found the peace that she was looking for here on earth and is no longer in any sort of pain. My heart goes out to her family and friends.

      The $166 million juenemdgt against the Jesuits for abusing N.A. for years on end was never paid by the diocese because they had no money. They just filed for bankruptcy, and closed-up shop. And, the vatican is just sitting on their laurels.
