Winehouse had an incredible talent that the world will miss, but her career was imbued with her battle with substance abuse and her struggle with violent mood swings. She cancelled a number of shows in the UK in 2007, blaming exhaustion, and was later hospitalized for an overdose of heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, ketamine and alcohol.

Beyond that, Winehouse had a number of run-ins with the law, namely for punching a fan in the face, getting arrested for marijuana possession in Norway, and being taken into custody when a video of her, supposedly smoking crack cocaine, was given to the police.
