    Amy Winehouse will be laid to rest on Tuesday.

    According to a family spokesman, the Back to Black singer's funeral will be a private affair for family and close friends only.

    As Winehouse is Jewish, normally tradition calls for her to be buried within 24 hours of her passing on Saturday. But since the autopsy wasn't conducted until today, the service will take place tomorrow.

    No word where the funeral will be held or whether there are plans for a public memorial for the 27-year-old iconoclastic British belter, whose substance abuse overshadowed a brilliant, if brief, career.

    Meanwhile, today's preliminary autopsy results were inconclusive, so we'll have to wait two to four weeks before toxicology tests come back for a final determination as to whether Winehouse died of a drug overdose as suspected.
