    Just saw this pop up while reading an online news site. I'm having a hard time finding much more because it seems like it just happened, there isn't much in the way of a full story yet. I don't think anyone will be surprised if it turns out to have been an overdose.

    Another 27.

    Wasn't a fan or anything, but it's sad to see. RIP
    Fame and fortune isn't everything it's cracked up to be, unfortunately they will never tell you that in the news entertainment section.

    It's pretty tragic that such a great talent wasn't over to overcome her personal issues, and died at such a young age.

    It's sad that it had to come to this.

    Blimey. I wasn't a big fan of her. But, still, it comes as quite a shock. RIP.

    I don't think I'd ever seen anyone as willfully self-destructive as her in the past few years. Still, sad way to go.

    I did like her music too. :(

    Yeah, that's about where I'm at. I only heard the one song from her and I didn't even like it all that much, but I'm still pretty shocked by this (even though, given her personal life, I probably shouldn't be). Still, it's always a pity when someone dies so young.

    How telling is it that when I saw this as trending topic on Twitter along with "Joplin" I immediately thought Scott Joplin instead of Janis Joplin?

    Like her music.
    Definitely a shame to see such a young person die in such a way. Have to say this doesn't come as a surprise though..
    Sad.

    For me it's the EXACT opposite. This was so predictable. I remember a couple of years ago this being a topic of conversation in the media.

    Musical talent set aside, I have a really hard time feeling any sort of sympathy for a person that destroys their own life through a series of really bad choices.
    I feel bad for her family and loved ones...of course, I've felt bad for them for quite some time now...she was someone's little girl once...pity she grew up to be a screw up.
    But alas, that is the order of things, and natural selection has a way of ensuring survival of the fittest. Unfortunately, junkies often don't make the cut.

    I can't say I'm shocked in the least. Not that I saw this coming, but it isn't a surprise.

    Sad. Not that she died, but just how she's lived the past couple years.

    Look at me. I'll get famous by singing a song about how I'm too good to go to rehab and then I'll die.
