We are heartbroken at the news that Amy Winehouse was found dead in her home earlier today. Not surprisingly, many of her fellow musicians are, too. Hordes of artists took to Twitter to celebrate the talented but troubled performer, who, as Lance Bass, Big Boi, and others pointed out in their tweets, died at the same fatal age as Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison.
