Thanks for posting.
May Whitney now be in peace. She will always be missed.

Rest in Peace. What a great voice. We are fortunate to have been able to enjoy her talent.

Live fast, die young and leave a train wreck of a body.

She was a great singer, but she had many chances to get her life in order, and Whitney found drugs and alcohol more imperative than her child or her career. I for one am not that sympathetic about her demise. You reap what you sow.

I’m speechless. I cannot believe she is dead. I do not know what to say.

Whitney Houston’s rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” at Super Bowl 25 was the greatest and most moving version of our national anthem ever sung. For that alone, Whitney deserves our unending admiration and respect. RIP, Ms. Houston, and thanks for ’91.

Whitney was amazing! So amazing!

I am very saddened by this news, but I can’t say I was surprised. It was unfortunate that she had difficulty beating her addictions, and it appears it had something to do with her death. She had a great voice and many wonderful hits. Rest in peace.

I’m with davinci here… sure, it is sad when someone dies (with some exceptions), but a lot of people die all the time. She likely caused her own death, which doesn’t eliminate the tragedy, but it happens, especially among people with such reckless behaviour.
In addition, all these tributes and whatnot make me wonder why her death is so much more significant than anyone else’s. Yes, she was talented, but was her talent that much more valuable to society than what many other people, who get a tiny fraction of the recognition, have contributed? I don’t know… but I wonder.

Seems like I heard something about her recently. Can’t remember where I heard/read it, but I think it was something along the lines that she had no intention of quitting her drug use.

Perhaps, when they pass legislation to legalize all drugs, they should name the bill after her. They can call it, ‘Whitney’s Law.’ It would be a fitting memorial.

When I heard, I was so sad. So sad.
All we can do is warn about using drugs the
VERY FIRST TIME. And hope kids listen.

She sings that anthem so effortlessly, so beautifully, and she looks
God is truly great.

@VtheK: Or we could name this “war” on drugs after her as well. “Do it for Whitney!” could be the government’s rallying cry. It hasn’t taken that long for government to move from drugs to salt, to sugar, to transfats, to you-name-it. Houston had an incredible voice, even if most of her music during her heyday was too “poppy” for my tastes, and yes it’s tragic that she made some very poor choices in her life, but that was her right to do so. Just like those who eat fast food all the time – even with the “diet” soda – and “wonder” why they are so overweight, those who smoke like a freight train, drink alcohol like a fish, and all the other ways in which we slowly kill ourselves by overindulging. Life is full of choices for adults to make and the less the government interferes with the more freedom to decide for ourselves what to choose the better it is for everyone. Either that or think of Bloomberg, Obama and all the other nanny-staters with unfettered control over our lives because it may be happening slowly but our liberties are being eroded by them. Give me the right information and let me choose what to do but get government the hell out my life.
