My heart goes out to her daughter. She could not even see her mom? what is that about? I know whitney was having a hard time and all but never thought this would happen. Clive Davis should have not tried to push her into a comeback so soon

Chaka Khan spoke about the dangers of the music industry that may have influenced Houston and her battle with addiction.
"I think we all, as artists, because we're highly sensitive people, and this machine around us, this so-called 'music industry,' is such a demonic thing," she told Morgan. "It sacrifices people's lives and their essences at the drop of a dime...I had a manager once say to me, You know you're worth more money dead than alive."
The singer expressed the most concern about Clive Davis' decision to move forward with his pre-Grammy party on the night that Houston passed away in the same hotel that she died in.
"I thought that was complete insanity," Khan said. "I don't know what could motivate a person, to have a party, in a building, where the person, whose life he had influenced so enormously, and whose life had been affected by her...I don't understand how that party went on."
Sharon Osbourne, the wife of Ozzy Osbourne and co-host of The Talk, admitted that she could not make it to Davis' party after hearing about Houston's death.
"I didn't go to the Clive Davis party," she told E! News. "I do not know how people could have gone to the party knowing that Whitney was still in that building dead."
