Amy Winehouse‘s family say that there was no illegal drugs of any sort in her body at the time of her death last month according to the toxicology report.
While there was no illegal drugs in her system there was alcohol but it is undetermined if this played any part in the singer’s death, if you remember it was rumored she died from alcohol withdrawals so I guess this squashes that theory.
TMZ report that Scotland Yard have yet to receive the toxicology results from the coroner but Amy’s family have released a statement through a rep.
The statement starts out saying “toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy’s system at the time of her death. Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.”
“The family would like to thank the police and coroner for their continuing thorough investigations and for keeping them informed throughout the process. They await the outcome of the inquest in October.” They finished up saying.
Now I don’t want to be cynical or anything but if you notice they only say there was no illegal drugs, it is uknown as of yet if there was any legal drugs such as painkillers in her system.
This better be a joke but according to new reports Lady GaGa is set to play Amy Winehouse in a film based on the singer’s turbulent life that leads right up to her tragic death.
For some strange reasons producers think that GaGaa would be perfect to star in the role and they are already in secret talks with her to portray Winehouse on the big screen.
“Lady Gaga worshipped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen. She’d be spot on performing Amy’s songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude,” says a source.
Apparently after completing her two-year long Monster Ball world tour GaGa was given tons of scripts but she has been holding out on the perfect role and for her that is playing Winehouse.
“Gaga’s been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career,” the source continued.
An insider close to GaGa says her “management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy’s untimely death. But there’s only ever been one role she wants and that’s to play Amy.”
When news broke of Winehouse’s death GaGa was one of the first celebrities to comment and say how devasted she was to hear the news because Winehouse was one of her biggest inspirations.
While I think they kind of look alike again I say this better be a joke, GaGa lists everyone under the sun as her “biggest inspiration” and really isn’t it too soon to start making a movie based on Winehouse’s death considering she’s not even dead a full two weeks?
What do you think about this?
The cause of Amy Winehouse‘s death won’t officially be known for a few weeks until the toxicology report comes in but it’s being put down to her sudden abstinence from alcohol by her family.
Despite reports that Amy went on a drinking binge the morning she died her family claim that she completely gave up the drink and that’s what killed her.
A source close to the family spoke to The Sun and told them that Amy was given strict orders by her doctors to cut down on her heavy drinking gradually but she ignored this and decided to go cold turkey which her body couldn’t cope with.
“Abstinence gave her body such a fright, they thought it was eventually the cause of her death, doctors had told Amy to gradually reduce her intake of alcohol and to avoid binging at all costs. Amy told him she couldn’t do that. It was all or nothing and she gave up completely.” the source says.
Amy’s father, Mitch, also says that reports that she bought drugs the night before she died are untrue and that she hasn’t touched drugs in three years.
Meanwhile Paz de La Huerta has spoken about Amy’s death and she doesn’t believe it was either drink or drugs, she simply thinks that the reason she died is because Amy seen bad photos of herself.
“Look what just happened to Amy Winehouse! Maybe had she not seen so many bad pictures of herself she would have gotten more self esteem. And not been so self-destructive.” says Paz.
What a tool. We really won’t know until the toxicology reports come in so all of these rumors can be put to rest.

I’m still kind of in shock that I’m writing this but Amy Winehouse‘s funeral took place earlier on today in London and brought out hundreds of fans and 150 attendees, which included producer Mark Ronson and Kelly Osbourne – who wore her hair in a beehive style to pay tribute to her close friend, before she was cremated.
The guests which also obviously included Amy’s family and on-and-off again boyfriend Reg Traviss gathered at a synagogue Edgware, London, to pay tribute to the soul singer just days after the news that she had passed away.
The hour-long memorial service was also a celebration of the singers life as well as mourning her and a rep for the singer says that her father’s, Mitch, eulogy was “funny” and emotional. When speaking he said his daughter had been “the happiest she has been for years.”
“Amy was the greatest daughter, family member and friend you could ever have, recently Amy found love with Reg. He helped her with her problems and Amy was looking forward to their future together. She was the happiest she has been for years.” Her father said.
His last words were “Goodnight my angel, sleep tight. Mommy and Daddy love you ever so much,” before Carole King‘s song ‘So Far Away’ began to play, which was on of her favorite songs, and Mitch encouraged people to sing along – which they did.
After the ceremony they headed to the Golders Green crematorium for the singer to be cremated, which is apparently a family tradition because that’s where her grandmother was cremated.
Her boyfriend spoke to The Sun before the funeral saying “we have suffered a terrible untimely loss and want peace now.I can’t describe what I am going through and I want to thank so much all of the people who have paid their respects and who are mourning the loss of Amy, such a beautiful, brilliant person and my dear love.I have lost my darling who I loved very much.”
Again, may she rest in peace.
Ever since the awful news that Amy Winehouse passed away on Saturday afternoon at her home in London there has been tons of different stories about what may possibly have happened so it’s hard for me to whittle them all down. I’ll start with the latest from TMZ that confirms Amy died alone in bed.
Chris Goodman, one of Amy’s close friends and her rep, spoke to TMZ and said that Amy was found dead in bed by a security guard who had been looking after her. Goodman says “she was in her bedroom after saying she wanted to sleep and when he went to wake her he found she wasn’t breathing. He called the emergency services straight away. He was very shocked. At this stage no one knows how she died. She died alone in bed.”
Meanwhile there is rumors that Amy went and bought drugs from a well-known dealer in Camden the night before she died and then went on a binge doing cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine. A source says “it was an ecstasy overdose. She could do cocaine until the cows come home. But this was obviously a dodgy pill.”
Now it must be noted that the drug story hasn’t been proven and her autopsy results aren’t in yet so the exact cause of Amy’s death is still unknown but according to the Daily Mail report that during a preliminary police investigation there was no drugs found in her home, instead the Daily Mail claim that Amy went on a drinking binge.
They report that Amy, who has long suffered with her addictions to alcohol and drugs, was upset after she and her on-off boyfriend, Reg Traviss, broke up so she decided to have a drinking binge with vodka.
Amy’s mother has spoken about her daughter’s death and she said that she seen her the day before she died when Amy told her she loved her. She says “they are the words I will always treasure, I’m glad I saw her when I did.” She also apparently thought what we all thought and said “it was only a matter of time.”
As celebrity reactions in on Twitter, the most touching is probably Russell Brand‘s blog. Part of what he wrote is “Now Amy Winehouse is dead, like many others whose unnecessary deaths have been retrospectively romanticised, at 27 years old. Whether this tragedy was preventable or not is now irrelevant. It is not preventable today. We have lost a beautiful and talented woman to this disease. Not all addicts have Amy’s incredible talent. Or Kurt’s or Jimi’s or Janis’s, some people just get the affliction. All we can do is adapt the way we view this condition, not as a crime or a romantic affectation but as a disease that will kill.” You can read his full blog here.
This is all very sad, I’m sure details will be flooding in all week.

There is a new celebrity drug scandal every few months so since the latest one involves Miley Cyrus has just been caught smoking a bong, The Frisky have come up with 13 other celebrities that have been caught doing a bit of drugs.
OK, I kind of have to give it up for the headline “Harry Pothead.” A 2009 cover of London’s Daily Mail featured a big old photo of Daniel Radcliffe, his face painted, puffing on what they claim is a joint. The shot was taken at a party held at his sometime-girlfriend’s apartment, and a fellow party-goer totally narc-ed on him. “Daniel was laughing and seemed to find it funny,” she said. “But he didn’t really look like he knew what was going on.” Daniel’s camp is, of course, rushing to his defense. “We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today’s Daily Mirror,” his publicist said. “Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.”
In 2008, TMZ posted a pic of Kristen Stewart smoking what they alleged was a bowl.
In 2004, The National Enquirer had a fruit of a story—Charlize Theron smoking what appeared to be pot out of an apple. Her camp had no comment on the images.
Everyone thought Kate Moss’s career was over when images of her cutting lines of cocaine appeared on the cover of The Daily Mail in 2005. But this girl has more lives than a cat. After an apology and stint in rehab, she came back—landing a cover of Vanity Fair and more campaigns than ever.
The video never surfaced—which makes us a little suspect that it never existed. But in 2008, The National Enquirer claimed to have gotten its hand on a video of Angelina Jolie snorting coke and doing heroin in the ‘90s. In the footage, she supposedly says, “Wow, this is really good smack—not that cheap crap that’s been stepped on.”
In 2007, paparazzi caught Mischa Barton puffing on a rolled item in the driver’s seat of her car. It was almost like foreshadowing—a year later she was arrested for possession and driving under the influence of marijuana.
This is strange. A full month before that nakey tape of Rebecca Gayheart, Eric Dane, and Kari Ann Peniche appeared on the internet, the National Enquirer ran a picture of Rebecca, before she met Eric, naked in the bathtub with another woman, holding what is allegedly a crack pipe and lighter.
A few days after Paris Hilton told Larry King that she’d never done drugs, a video clip of her supposedly smoking a pipe in an Amsterdam hash bar popped up on the internet. Here’s a still shot.
It’s actually hard to count the number of times Amy Winehouse has been caught on camera puffing on what sure looks like a joint. This is just one example
Michael Phelps went the apology route hardcore when News of the World revealed a picture of him smoking a bong at a party in 2008.
In 2007, a “friend” of Lindsay Lohan’s released a tape that supposedly shows her snorting coke in the bathroom stall of a New York bathroom.
The Blemish posted oodles of pix of Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore sharing what appears to be a joint on vacation in Hawaii in 2007.
In 2009, Zac Braff was photographed in a New York club doing a little puff puff of something.
I find it funny how most of these celebrities were caught just smoking weed,
