What a sad end. Such an incredible voice. Not unexpected with her battles over the years. But sad just the same. It almost seemed like she was making a comeback too, with a movie and the xfactor thing. I am not sure if they completed the movie, but it was scheduled to come out this summer. RIP!

I'm guessing the grammy's will be scrambling to do something tomorrow night.

Sad when anyone who has been that fortunate and had everything handed to them on a silver platter for so many years decides to piss away their life like she has, but everyone has the right to make that choice, I guess. The 'diva' approach to life can't be that fulfilling, either.

Here's to another 49 for you!

well, sometimes people make bad choices. Especially when young. She started in that industry when pretty young considering. Still sad. Addiction is a choice at the beginning. After that who knows.

Thanks again! I have known of quite a few people who dabbled in drugs, only to die later from all the excesses after they quit them. They do so much damage to the body, people should never start that crap. Even if you stop, your life may be on borrowed time. :(

What is also sad to me is how there never seem to be the right people around in their entourages to get them the help they need, or be a positive enough influence to steer them in a better direction. I know ultimately they make their own choices and nobody can make them get clean, but there are just too many sponges and parasites who are only along for the free ride and do nothing to discourage the abuse. Michael Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith, etc, etc, etc.

Agreed. And I got so sick of the way everybody tacks the obligatory "bad boy" before Bobby Brown every time he gets mentioned. Never could stand his attitude...

She was a true talent, and a legendary voice for sure. Very sorry to see her go out that way, especially after viewing clips of her some of her performances in 2010.

I just woke up and was flipping through news headlines. I saw it, thought it said something about someone close to her dying. Doubled back. Thought maybe it was a HOAX, but no... Just sad, sad, sad.... :cry:

Her voice reminds me so much of my childhood and her breakthrough as a not only a singer, but a legend for female vocalists. My aunt went to her grave claiming her National Anthem in the Super Bowl was the best rendition she has ever heard and also the best vocalist performances as well.

Anybody who is surprised shouldn't be, though. She was one of the incredible talents left in line for a potential overdose. She was heavy on cocaine and Brown probably wasn't the greatest of influences to side with. R.I.P Whitney Houston.


I was serving overseas at the time and it truly was a memorable moment, sitting in a room with a few dozen other G.I.s far from home, watching her sing.

Yes, it was beautiful and effortless! I really don't think anyone compares to that. So many people try to overdo or go all over the place with it. What she did was just perfect. Must have been pretty powerful for you that year, being over seas.

She was a junkie, I did not care for her music. Heard she drowned in the hotel bathtub. (At least that is what TMZ is reporting)

Just another celebrity who could have had the world at her feed (and did) and pissed it away. Excuse me if you feel I'm being disrespectful, but it's her fault and only hers.

I have to agree, and I mean no disrespect to her family, but I have a special hard-on for Xanax or any other Benzodiazepine, ESPECIALLY when mixed with alcohol. People should learn better by now. A healthy measure of anxiety is a normal part of our life experience, but people are being taught that it's a "disorder" that needs to be treated with meds. Problem is, it only increases the problem as the body builds up a tolerance (and an addiction) for it. Of the prescription drug addicts I've known, Xanax, Klonipin, etc. is right near the top of the worst-offenders list.

Responsible doctors I've known refuse to prescribe them long term -- if anything, very short term for "intense grieving periods". But there are always docs out there willing to pass that crap out like candy.

Ditto for me too. It's sad she died at young age but I don't feel the least bit sorry for her. I'll bet my tax refund that she was high as a kite when she died.

Okay, let's get your picks. Which one takes the cake?



Whitney Houston to star in her new film. The Bodybag.
----------
Whitney Houston died just hours after being asked to be a judge on the next season of X-Factor.
Personally I think she made the right decision.
----------------
Whitney Houston won an impressive six Grammys in fourteen years.
Slightly less impressive was her recent attempt at six grams in fourteen minutes.
-------------------------
What's pink and sits on the doormat?
Whitney Houston's valentines cards.
----------------------
If she wasn't before, Whitney Houston is definitely 100% soul now.
------------------------
Bobby Brown may have slapped Whitney Houston around a bit but at least she beat him to death.
------------------------
Apollo 13 - "Houston.. We have a problem."
Grammy Awards - "Problem... We have no Houston."
-------------
Say what you want about Whitney Houston but you have to admit that her death has really helped her comeback, even more than her recent singing

From what I am being told she was ripped the night before and did not look good at all....demons are a bitch, and we all have them...She made millions upon millions, lived a lavish lifestyle and had every opportunity to get a good group of people around her that could have helped clean up her life...she chose not to...to then pity her?? Nah....

Absolutely agree. Her voice was phenomenal.

What a waste of a talent.

When she performed here at the O2 a couple of years ago, her voice was gone. Just wasn't there.

I knew then she was lost.
