Whitney Houston is gone.  A huge talent, and a good woman.  How sad this makes me feel. I've lost a friend I love.

Her Star Spangled Banner still gives me chills, especially since everyone is butchering the anthem these days.

One of the sweetest voices ever to grace our time. What a shame. She had some serious drug addictions that may have been responsible for her demise.  :(

the latest reports seem to indicate that her pre-performance ritual of Xanax and bath did her in.

basically Xanax and warm bath and going to sleep at the wrong time.

Man, that's just sad and the damage her addictions did her voice was apparent during her comeback.

Not a big fan, but she was way too young. Sad.

When will people learn that being famous is deadly?

I head that she was attacked by wasps. She was found under her car, wasp bitten to death. :-\ :-\
