    One time, my sister was listening to The Bodyguard soundtrack and that is the only memory I have of Whitney Houston not being a drug user. I never knew her as a superstar, and I was alive and aware during the height of her fame. She stopped being significant when she chose drugs over herself, everything afterwards is meaningless, including her death.

    Guess Bobby Brown`s pimp hand was strong after all.

    Sorry, no pity. I feel immense sorrow when someone under 30 in her position dies as they really have not had a chance to work things out, but if at 48 with all the priviledge she had she was too stupid to sort things out then- well, save sympathy for those who have the smarts but not the wherewithal....

    Actually, she WAS a fantastic singer. She had a powerful voice that you don`t hear too often! BUT she chose to go down the wrong road.....it`s really no ones fault but her own; we can`t blame Bobby for this one. I do really feel bad for her daughter and her mother. A parent SHOULD NEVER have to bury their child...

    @Lostinkorea : No one said her voice was bad (I loved her voice, not her music). Just saying she was no longer relevant to society once she chose drugs over her music.

    Dying of drug overdose after 15 years of everyone knowing about it is your own damn fault.

    She was an alcoholic and a drug addict. The ONLY person i have sympathy for in this case is her daughter. Whitney can rot.

    I believe a lot of people here are jumping to conclusions about how she died. Since the police haven`t said how or why she died, I`m going to reserve my opinion on her death.

    She will be missed, nonetheless, and however it ended, she was one of the greatest singers ever.

    RIP Whitney.

    If anyone is curious on the update...

    As it goes right now, she was found in the tub, nude (LordJim I think it`s worth note. Psychologically speaking, people don`t usually undress to commit suicide so it indicates it was likely accidental). There were prescription pills in her room and she was underneath the water and there was water in her lungs.

    I actually do feel sympathy for her. This happens to a lot of celebrities. The lifestyle introduces them to thousands of temptations and socially acceptable drugs. They go to rehab when it all becomes too much and Doctors prescribe them prescription drugs. They just become addicted to something else that`s legal and easier to get.

    I`m not saying it`s not her own fault but I can`t help but just feel sympathy for her. It`s not as if it`s not rampant in Hollywood. Heath Ledger, Michael Jackson, ODB, Brittany Murphy, DJ AM...hell, how about Marilyn Monroe, Jimmi Hendrix, Elvis, Bruce Lee and Keith Moon?

    Personally, I just choose to blame Bobby Brown for getting her hooked on the bad shiz in the first place.

    Cobrakiller, I`m just watching it now :) LL Cool J said a prayer for Whitney right after the opening number and they showed a clip of one of her Grammy performances. It was nice, touching. I`m happy that they did something simple and respectful considering her beliefs and beginnings instead of rushing out an ill-prepared tribute.

    Jennifer Hudson sang I will always love you after the memorium. I like Jennifer Hudson- I wasn`t overly particular to the rendition though...but you could tell she was trying not to cry and she did a good job. I thought Dolly Parton should have sang it.

    Do not take me to be insensitive, but Whitney Houston died because she was a drug addict; prescription drugs or illegal drugs, whatever it was the drugs finally got to her.

    I feel very sorry that her family has lost her, but for Whitney herself, I do not have any sympathy.
