What killed Amy Winehouse?

The autopsy of Amy Winehouse done today showed inconclusive results and that additional toxicology tests were needed. So what killed her? I’ll tell you, in case you don’t have time to wait for the further coroner reports.

No, it was not the DRUGS, SMOKING, AND ALCOHOL that killed her. It was the curse of 27. Or, rather, the 27 Club, or even the Forever 27 Club. The years and years of abusing her body wasn’t what put her under. Now, please don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed Amy’s music, and found her to be one more body in an ocean of celebrity retardation from time to time.

Other members of the 27 Club include Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Curt Cobain.

MTV has a nice collage of Amy throughout the years.

A six-count indictment alleges that Clemens obstructed a congressional inquiry with 15 different statements that he made under oath in 2008, including denials that he had ever used steroids or human growth hormone. The indictment says that he lied and committed perjury regarding the same matters.

Barry still clinging on to his story

Wow. I had forgotten about Barry Bonds. I mean, it’s been what, forever, since we’ve had news of the perjury / steriods incidents?

Apparently his trial date is set for March 21, 2011. They also hashed out a schedule to file legal documents and to hold pretrial hearings to shape what the jury will see and hear during the three-week trial.

Bonds’ initial February 2009 trial date was delayed at the last minute when prosecutors appealed the judge’s ruling excluding vital evidence. The prosecutors ultimately lost that appeal and have decided to go ahead with the trial anyway. The former San Francisco Giant has pleaded not guilty to charges he lied to a grand jury in December 2003 when he denied knowingly taking performance-enhancing drugs.
