Another legend has passed away :(
Whitney Houston was found dead today in a Beverly Hills hotel.
There was speculation of recent drug abuse in the time leading up to her death.
She recently completed a role in the upcoming movie "Sparkle" that's set to be released later this year.

Hope they do a tribute at the Grammys tomorrow seeing how she dominated them back in her prime.

Truly a beautiful voice! RIP Whitney Houston :(

She really squandered God's gift to her. RIP Whitney Houston.

It's a wonder she even managed to last as long as she did, with her drug use and health problems. Shame.

Now we wait for the prerequisite cashcow posthumous CD's, yay

For all the other sickos out there who thinks it's cool to make fun of that poor woman, just remember this. It's not right, but it's okay.

How long before Brian claims that without Flash Gordon there'd have been no Bodyguard?


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I wish I could say that I was shocked. But there is really more of a sense of inevitability about it. Sad.

Why is Whitney gone and Bobby Brown doing ok?
She was the bigger star. I guess he could handle the demons and she couldn't. It seems her problems began with their union and she was never able to rebound. I hope Demi Moore is paying attention.

Why Demi Moore?

Marriage imploded. Anorexia, drugs, 911 drama, headlines. Hauled off to rehab this month .... You know, the usual stuff. Since they're happening close together and same age, just struck a chord. You would think that when you reach a certain age you would be more resilient, not less, but when too much destructive behavior is in the mix .....etc. Same old story.

She gave a lot to the world. Very sad. This one has really shocked me. I guess they will do a tribute at the Grammy Awards tonight. It must be so sad for all who knew her.

Because he kept saying "take this" and she did.

actually she was reportedly the enabler in their relationship...

BUt that may just be a rumor within the Bobby camp... which means it was probably 50/50

Either way i feel bad for her daughter. I saw a recent string of Prince O(+> gigs at the Forum in Inglewood (11 of 12 gigs) and Whitney showed up to get her way onstage on a night when Chaka was opening...

it was less than impressive, a lot of screaming.. she seemed haggard and tired. I felt bad for her, but she was there with her daughter.

Not a doubt she felt a lot of the sting of what "she'd become" from what "she was" and that probably led her on to do worse.

Sadly, i'm expecting this is some kind of fluke tragedy. only possible drug relation would be a "muscle relaxer" (common for people after 45 in the US) and bad timing with her bath...

if not.. then everybody will be saying "i told you so"

I don't see Whitney as a victim of Bobby Brown really.  From interviews she's given in recent years, as well as through the train wreck of a reality show "Being Bobby Brown", it's clear that she sought just the kind of relationship she ended up with.  She stated directly that as a young and independent woman in control of a massive career she actively liked Brown taking control on the home front.  The classic mistaking of a thugish, insecure bully  for a truly strong man that has been the downfall of many before her and many to come.  She's not the first woman to get fascinated with that kind of man and turn up lost, but it took her way too long to extract herself, and even then only because he was being blatantly and serially unfaithful, not because he was an irredeemable 40 year old punk.  Hitting bottom is such a long ride when you're wealthy and insulated by fame.  So much was squandered. It's sad.

I was just talking about her specifically. If there is any implications that she was more special than the others in your list, it is not intended, and who can be more special than Freddie, of all people.

The reason for my feeling that she squandered the gift to her is that she damaged her voice through drug abuse. Her voice is the obvious talent given to her and the reason for her existence in the music industry.
