A host of musicians and celebrities have taken to Twitter to pay tribute to Amy Winehouse, who died today (July 23) after suffering a suspected drugs overdose at her London flat.

Lily Allen said that the singer's death was "beyond sad", adding: "She was such a lost soul, may she rest in peace.

Boy George commented that he could not "contain my sadness and anger" and said it was a "deeply sad day for many reasons".



Kelly Osbourne described Winehouse as one of her best friends, adding: "I can't even breath right my now I'm crying so hard."

Jessie J, who, like Winehouse, attended the Brit School commented: "The way tears are streaming down my face. Such a loss."

Paramore singer Hayley Williams was also in shock but argued Winehouse would "never truly be gone" due to "that voice".

Other musicians and celebrities who offered their condolences included Rihanna, Blink-182 man Mark Hoppus, The Who, P Diddy, Kate Moss, Megadeth man Dave Mustaine and Louis Walsh.

Meanwhile, Faces are dedicating their gig at Hurtwood Park in Surrey tonight to the 27-year-old singer.

Winehouse's label Universal also paid tribute in a statement that read: "We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy's family, friends and fans at this difficult time."

The singer was found by paramedics at her North London flat at around 4pm (BST). Her death is officially unexplained, but it's believed she died of a drugs overdose.
