    I just feel sorry for her daughter, it's a shame that she's been left behind in this way.

    Obviously Whitney was in a very dark place.

    She really was great back in the 80's and early 90's and is part of the soundtrack of my childhood/youth.

    She's been on a sad deroute since then, and just like the early death of Amy Winehouse I can't say I'm all that surprised.

    I can't help thinking that the "glamourous" celebrity lifestyle is an unhealthy dangerous business for people who can't really handle it.

    Looking at talent shows like X-factor and Idol, it seems to me that many of the contestants are the type of people who think love, respect and recognition is something they have to earn, based on performance (and other exterior traits). Maybe they had to fight for their (absent) parent's attention, others may have been measured/paced all the time.
    I also think these people don't handle adversity very well. So paradoxically, they desire a celebrity life more than anything, but it may also be what breaks them in the end. so think twice before you decide to become a celebrity icon_wink.gif

    now let's remember Whitney at her best

    true story - whitney houston was the first celebrity i had a crush on. i think (and still think) that in her prime she's one of the most beautiful women i've ever seen.

    and she's super talented.

    RIP whitney

    just watched this video, and the lyrics and glossy image of the video actually fits my previous post, in a sad sort of ironic way, when you know the context.



    great voice nonetheless

    I still can't believe it -- not surprised -- but it still seems surreal that she is gone.

    What a true talent, and inspiration to many a performer. Beautiful - talented. So saddened for everybody who enjoyed her music, acting, shows... Still to this day I keep words to her song in my classroom... "I believe the children are our future teach them well and let them lead the way." I just so wish she followed those words.. Too young, Rest in Peace Whitney.

    I know what you mean...its like another icon from my youth is dead icon_neutral.gif

    Sad thing is that I have buried several talented and brilliant friends as a direct or indirect result of addiction. I hope that this serves as a warning to people struggling with substance abuse that active addiction ends in death.....always.

    So here is a update to her death this morning.

    Her hair stylist found her in the bath tub with her face under water. Her stylist, bodyguard, and hair stylist were knocking at the bathroom door in preparations for a party. When they didn't get an answer from Whitney they broke the door down. Her hairstylist who was female went in and screamed. Then the bodyguard came and and paramedic were called.

    No clues yet as to what was cause of death but autopsy will be concluded soon. Heart attack or drugs could have caused her into a sleep induced state and she slid in the bath tub causing her to drown.

    I still sit here and stare at all the pictures posted on the net for the story of her passing, and it's still very surreal that she is gone. She was a legend that was going to be around forever, battling her personal demons, making a glorious comeback. One never would think about Whitney passing so early and so tragically.

    Unlike Michael Jackson, who, for some reason, you always just knew something tragic would/may happen to him. and it did.

    Ironically for both Whitney and MJ, they were both on a comeback trail to reclaim the glory they toasted in the 80's.

    Whitney Houston was reaching the apex of her stardom when I was a kid. I loved her music! (pre-Bobby Brown downfall of course.)
    Her voice was powerful yet tempered with a melodic beauty that could mesmerize. The range and control of her voice was one that I've never heard of before or since. (I say since because once she became involved with that thug Bobby Brown, her life deteriorated. I was always saddened, and a bit disgusted, that she lowered herself to be with that waste of oxygen.)

    Everyone has been making a big deal about Kelly Clarkson's singing of the Nat'l Anthem this past super bowl. Really? icon_eek.gif
    Yes it was good, but listen to Ms. Houston's 1991 rendition. I have never been a fan of America's anthem. I don't think it's very good. BUT this rendition makes even this crappy song amazing!
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xS-R7SM_-M4

    Here is Kelly Clarkson's...good, but does not compare.....
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEZ-ci5SQHQ


    Even though her voice was killed by Bobby Brown/drug abuse way before Ms Houston died, the creative and beautiful person that was still there will be missed. icon_sad.gif

    The sad reality is that, though many are using past videos and such to reminisce about the greatness of Whitney, even alive, the same would have to be done. Her voice was so shot that she would never return to the glorious vocals. So, from an entertainment (singing) standpoint, I hate to say it, but the world didn't really "lose" anything. Sure, she could have served as mentor for younger singers, but the glorious Whitney was gone years and years ago.

    Even her "comeback" could only be a shadow of who she once was vocally. Maybe she could have become a great actress as a new chapter in her career.

    Of course, it's a huge loss for her friends and family.
