For Olivia Nova, it’s not likely that becoming an adult film actress was her preferred choice for becoming a star. In an interview over the summer, the 20-year-old from Minnesota spoke about her short career in porn, revealing that her true desire was to become a singer in the retro soul tradition of Amy Winehouse.

“I’d go straight to Amy Winehouse,” said the pretty brunette when asked in an Aug. 21 video interview whose music means the most to her. She also shared that she had begun working on an album with someone significant in the music industry, but she wouldn’t reveal who her collaborator was.

Tragically, Nova now shares her idol’s fate — dying much too young. Nova was found dead in her Las Vegas home Sunday, news reports say.

While a cause of death has not been released, Nova had taken to Twitter on Christmas Eve to express her sadness about being alone for the holidays. Two weeks earlier, she also had hit out at a fan who accused her of using heroin, revealing that she had a boyfriend who died from an overdose from the drug in April.

“I’ve never done heroin,” she tweeted. “My boyfriend killed himself two days before my birthday in April on [heroin], that’s not cool to poke at…not over him.”

Nova’s death sent another wave of shock and sadness through the adult industry, as she became the fourth female porn star to die in the past two months.

The other actresses in this grim list are: Shyla Stylez, 35, who died suddenly in her sleep at her mother’s home in British Columbia in November; August Ames, 23, who died by suicide on Dec. 5 in her home in the San Fernando Valley; and Yuri Luv, 31, who succumbed to a suspected drug overdose in her Los Angeles home on Dec. 13.

Hustler magazine and others in the industry tweeted out condolences for all the recent losses:

Saddened to hear the loss of another beautiful soul @olivianovaxxx gone too soon! Our thoughts go with her friends and family!

In confirming Nova’s death, her agency, LA Direct Models, said in a statement: “Another one, way too young, we are beyond shocked and most certainly, it was completely out of the blue.” The agency told Newsweek they had only represented Nova for a short time. Still, the agency said, “We came to know Olivia as a beautiful girl with a very sweet and gentle personality.”

In her Christmas Eve tweet, Nova said she wanted to give a fan a call because it “would lift my spirits.” She was immediately inundated with messages from fans tweeting to cheer her up.
