    Whitney Houston dead at 48

    I wasn't particularly a fan of her music. Nevertheless, this is obviously sad news.

    Tragic...reminiscent of the Amy Winehouse story. Talent, but overcome by addiction.

    Here is the performance that I always think of when I hear her name:

    Drugs ruin lives. So sad. Wonderful voice, beautiful girl.

    Curious all we are getting right now is just the report from her publicist, and absolutely no details at all.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Just like Amy Winehouse, the Illuminati killed her. Look it yourself. YouTube. Winehouse wasn't even drinking or doing drugs for 2 weeks prior to her death. look it up. Also look up, "the music industry exposed"... It will blow your mind.. Don't you think it is weird they never release information, then it consists of alcohol and drug use? Every time. Seriously, go look for yourself before you make some idiotic comment

    This is a sad news. She was very talented and beautiful, but drugs do indeed ruin lives.

    I don't know if this has already been discussed but I think it is pretty clear the Illumanati did it.

    There was some controversy concerning Whitney, her Step mother and her father's inheritance. The rumor was that Whitney was not doing well financially.

    Very sad news. Just a phenomenal voice and a stupendous talent.

    And an utter waste of those things. Sad, just sad. I'm really sorry to hear of this.

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Really? Is it joke time in the peanut gallery?

    You don't know what you got until it's gone. At the peak of her career, Whitney Houston's voice was Ty Cobb's tenacity, Babe Ruth's pinache and Hank Aaron's power all wrapped up in a candy foil. At one time this woman ruled the world.

    And now, all is lost. It is exasperating. So sad.
