Whitney Houston, Dead at 48.

So sad,

According to TMZ and other sources:

Whitney Houston died this afternoon ... a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

Houston won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards during her record-breaking career. Her album "Whitney" was the first female album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts. She has sold 200 million albums world wide.

Houston holds an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities from Grambling State University in Louisiana.

Houston had one child, Bobbi Kristina, with husband Bobby Brown. Houston and Brown were married from 1992-2007.

Whitney Houston Dead

Not a surprise. She wasted her talents. Not my cup of tea, but she could sure sing.

She set a gold standard for singers when she was in her prime. There are literally only a handful of singers that you can put in her league. Everyone that has done the National Anthem at ball games has been biting on her for the last 20 years and have done a subpar job at that.

Would it be wrong for the coroner to list the cause of death as "met Bobby Brown"?

I laughed when I saw that, then realized the it's kind of true (and sad).

I'm not a fan of her music but I would keep the radio on her song to listen to that voice.

What a tragedy.

I'm sure there's a slut on here who knew and worked with her. My condolences to anyone who knew her personally.

Shocking news.
Even though i saw i picture of her yesterday evening, leaving a club with an apparent slit wrist and the worse for wear, i just thought she,s gone off the rails a bit.

Damnit! I am mad at Bobby Brown right now. I am mad at her, and thank God for my recovering ass at this moment. But for the Grace of God.

That is if it was drugs.

If not, then I can go on giving her props for trying to get it together. And be sad in a healthy way.

Terribly sad :-(....... and still young really.
Some of those pop divas of the 80's-90's made it out unscathed, some did not.

I wasn't a fan of that genre of the time, but the woman had a hell of a voice.

RIP

not to be too much of a callous troll but...

this has been a long time coming. she has been so ****ed up for so long that i have to ask...
is anyone surprised at the news? you may be saddened but probably not shocked.


anyway i couldn't care less, she was notorious for hating her own fans towards the end and pushed away anyone who tried to help her with her statements and behaviour. didn't wish her dead but her star set loooong ago so not really a big deal that she passed away as she isn't pop star music level relevant anymore.

Whitney and Bobby remind me of Chris Brown and Rhianna. Chris looks like the poster boy for crack.
