Whitney Houston dead at 48

Whitney Houston was found dead in her hotel room today.

Quote
Whitney Houston, who reigned as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, has died, Fox News confirms. She was 48.

The Beverly Hills Police Department responded to an emergency call at the Beverly Hills Hotel Saturday, Lt. Mark Rosen, of the Bevery Hills Police Department said.

This is incredibly sad on many levels. When I first heard her, I was in my early 20's; she was barely out of her teens. Her voice was magnificent, and I thought she would easily be up to Ella Fitzgerald's talent by, well, now. Beauty, eloquence, and one hell of a voice. Even Kevin Costner had something going with her during the movie they starred in together, but she was definitely a deserved queen.

Of course, that all changed with the marriage and subsequent problems with Bobby Brown, along with the drug use. I'm not one that likes to bemoan lost opportunities of others, especially celebrities whom are a dime a dozen. But whatever mental problems that Whitney had (and she MUST have had some being married to that #$#^#@ a**wipe Bobby Brown) were easily surpassed by her talent.

But years of abuse, drugs, and Bobby did not allow her to develop as she should have. And as much as I'm saddened by her death, and from the gifts of song she gave the world, I will always remember that if she had the right motivation and support and, frankly, real love, she would have become the greatest female vocalist of all time.

R.I.P., Whitney.

Bobby Brown helped quite a bit. For every addict there are a number of enablers.
There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

From what I've heard, he was on a reunion tour with his band from the 90s last night, New Edition, and he had to leave the stage from crying his eyes out.

The true libs never miss the most inappropriate occasions to advance their liberal agenda.
In this case, the tragic death of Whitney Houston to legalize drugs, just the absolute absurdity of it...

Well if rumors are true and she drowned............I didn't see that one coming.

       Whitney Houston Prescriptions Found Possible Drowning           

No illegal drugs have been found in the hotel room where Whitney Houston died -- at least not yet -- but prescription drugs were present, and it's possible the singer drowned in the bathtub ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... when EMTs arrived Whitney's body was already removed from the bathtub so it will take an autopsy to determine if she OD'd, drowned or died from some other cause.

Informed sources tell us ... Beverly Hills cops -- who were still searching the room at the time this story was posted -- found various pill bottles. There was no evidence that Whitney was drinking alcohol in the room.

Her rendition of the National Anthem before the Super Bowl in '91 is the best I've ever heard. I even bought it on iTunes a while back. Every time I hear it I get goosebumps. RIP Whitney.

Everyday a thousand Americans die early because of drug abuse. Yet the girl in Detroit who died of a drug overdose at age eighteen today and the fifteen year old crackhead who died in Alabama yesterday go unnoticed because we care mostly about those who provide us entertainment. This is wrong. In America the death of any American should be equal to that of any other American.
And we, by collectively overlooking the sins of our entertainers, enhance their destructive behavior.

May God have mercy on the soul of the girl in Detroit and the boy in Alabama and Whitney Houston.

All deaths are not equal to every person.  My brother died of an overdose July 2008 from methadone. His wife's methadone that she was suppose to be taking for extreme pain. His overdose wasn't news because no one knew who he was except his family and friends. I remember the next day watching people go about their day as if nothing had happened. I wanted to scream..."Don't you know that MY BROTHER just died!?!".  His death meant more than any famous person or quite frankly yours could ever mean to me.  So you or Whitney Houston, as an American, do not affect me as much as my brothers death.  It all depends on how much someone cared for the person.

Telling the world of his death wouldn't have helped a single person. People would say, "This is news how?" and go about their lives as if nothing happened. It is human nature to care more about your own than someone you don't know.  Entertainers touch our lives, some more than others, some even for the worse.  That is why this is national news and not the death of a crackhead in Georgia or quite frankly my brother.

With that being said, the media always overdoses on these types of stories. Michael Jackson's was the worst.

She worked very hard to be where she is today.

I loved this woman's voice and I don't think I have heard a more beautiful rendition of the nation's anthem. But I share your sentiment, it seems like she had to really work hard at destroying her life when the easiest thing would have been to simply express her God given talent.

Only problem with that though is they'd become much more accessible, you'd have a wider population becoming dependent on illicit drugs, in turn they'd lose their jobs, and either hit people over the head to rob them or become more dependent on the Government to take care of them. Tony Bennett and Ron Paul are idiots to even think of supporting something like this.

Do not blame Caesar, blame the people of Rome who have so enthusiastically acclaimed and adored him and rejoiced in their loss of freedom and danced in his path and gave him triumphal processions . . . Blame the people who hail him when he speaks in the Forum of the 'new, wonderful good society' which shall now be Rome's, interpreted to mean 'more money, more ease, more security, more living fatly at the expense of the industrious.' Julius was always an ambitious villain, but he is only one man. Cicero
