She's singin' the Cocaine Blues right about now. She had a mouth on her. Just ask the cops she repeatedly cussed out for pulling here over. "Do you know who I am?".

Yeah. We know who you *were*:]

Don't anybody say anything bad about Whitney Houston, because you never walked a mile in her shoes. She had a hard life with Bobby Brown beating her up and getting her dependent on coke and whatever. He took money from her all along, she likely lost her self-confidence and self-esteem in this turmoil of her marriage. She went through enough but could not help being in love with this bastard. That was her downfall. He should get a jail sentence for what he did, involuntary manslaughter maybe. Anyway, RIP Whitney, my sweetie will cry a tear for you every time she hears one of your songs, you and your voice and persona meant that much to her.

Singing the national anthem must have been one of the rare moments she was not full of drugs and falling off the stage. To bad she died, but it is good that she does not need drugs anymore.

Everybody dies sooner or later.

The tragedy that comes out of this death is the lack of acknowledgment that fame causes more death than life.

Just like many other "suicides", Houston couldn't be normal because the taste of fame makes an average life taste nasty. But nobody can stay on a pedestal forever. Its a curse to anyone. So this example, like others, will be what I use to teach my kids why they should never want to be famous. Justin Beiber is a living example. But for how long?
