    Missed this weekend's entertainment news stories? We've got the latest on Amy Winehouse's tragic passing, along with Kristin Cavallari's wedding shutdown and some major Comic-Con scoop.

    • Shocking Death: Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home Saturday. Upon news of her passing, the "Rehab" crooner's celebrity friends (like Russell Brand) and fans alike poured out tributes on Twitter. Her family issued a statement: "Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy." Winehouse isn't the only famed musician who passed away at the age of 27. Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix are among the group known as the 27 Club, but is that a dangerous age for performers?
