Four years ago, the world was introduced to Amy Winehouse. In her 2007 song, "Rehab," she made light out of her addictions, which eventually claimed her life. Winehouse was one of the biggest artists signed to Def Jam during Jay-Z's tenure as president and CEO of the label.

During the summer of 2007, Jay-Z introduced her to the black audience, when he provided a rap verse on the remix of "Rehab." Two years ago, Eminem also parodied Amy Winehouse in his single, "We Made You." The song made fun of many celebrities, and Eminem said Amy made rehab look so good.

It was no secret Amy Winehouse was a frequent drug user. She had been in and out of rehab throughout her career. Recently, she appeared to be handling her addicition better. Winehouse is fresh off releasing her latest album, Back to Black. Winehouse died today in London at 4:00 pm, she was last seen alive with her goddaughter, Dionne Bromfield, at the iTunes festival.

While Amy Winehouse did not perform, she begged the crowd to buy Dionne's album. Last month, the troubled singer bombed a performance in London, in which the crowd became enraged. Her team said they were going to give her as much time off as she needed. Now, her time off is permanent.
