Most of you have probably heard the shocking news. Singer/Actress Whitney Houston passed away earlier Saturday afternoon. Her cause of death is still unknown. You can read more details on CNN. It’s only been a few hours since the news broke and I’m still very shocked about this. When I first seen the headline scroll across the bottom of my TV screen, my mouth dropped! I didn’t believe it.
Rumors swirled around online, that it wasn’t true. But after sitting here for the last couple hours watching the Pre-Grammy show online, it became very real. So many celebrities, close friends and loved ones shared their stories about how Whitney came into their lives and how they knew her.
Whitney was only 48 years old, she had so much more to live for! A lot of celebrities lead “glamorous” yet “troubled” lives and it’s sad when it eventually catches up with them. After the announcement of her death, many thought of her personal demons. Whitney Houston’s struggle with drug and alcohol use was highly publicized.
The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy.”
I feel that no matter what the autopsy shows was the cause of death that we all should remember her for the amazing woman she was, for all the greatness she brought to this world. She was beautiful and so well respected. She’s been up and she’s been down! She built herself back up! That alone I have the most respect for and look up too. No matter what life gives you, you can pick yourself up again.
Remember we’ve all made mistakes in our lives, we are all human! Personally I believe if it wasn’t for her ex husband Bobby Brown, she might still be alive today! I’m so sad to see a inspiration like her leave us too soon! Whitney had several #1 songs on the charts, to only be able to choose just one favorite, would be impossible for me. “The voice” she had was simply amazing. The feeling and soul she put into her music was undeniable.
