Whitney Houston dead at 48

Reuters reports that the most award-winning songstress of all time died today: "A Beverly Hills police officer told reporters at a briefing that emergency assistance received a call from the Beverly Hilton at around 3:20 p.m. PST, and the singer was pronounced dead at 3:55 p.m."


  1. Addictions make no exception for fame and fortune when they kill.
    Sad for all the family still here who love her.

  2. This is really sad. She was such a great talent whose life was destroyed by demons & drugs. Horrible loss for all. I can barely believe she’s just 22 years old when she sang this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXFliKZruXE

    1.  Most drugs can kill you at any age, as long as you do enough of them or mix them the wrong way. People have OD’d a lot younger than 48.
      As for Whitney, a very talented musician, but maybe not so good when it came to other choices and decisions.

    2.  A high-functioning professional of my acquaintance whose drive and work ethic I always used to envy dropped dead at 40 while jogging.  Turned out the drive came from a rather large cocaine habit.

  3. Very sad. I’ve not heard reports of any autopsy yet, however. Speculation always seems inappropriate in these circumstances as with Amy Winehouse. Whatever, she escaped club 27.

  4. She looked like hell last night.. had blood on her legs and everything.. surprised she didn’t go to the hospital.. Sad to see such a talented singer pass at such a young age..
