Whitney Died



It is with sadness that I read of the passing away of a music icon, Whitney Houston, several hours ago at the age of 48. As reported HERE she died from drug overdose which has been her struggle over the past decade she tried hard but failed to overcome. I don't know if there is a similarity with Michael Jackson's death with was found to be drug overdose induced by his doctor but the trigger of early death probably from several common premises - inability to handle fame, wealth, loss of public image, self esteem and ageing and perhaps domestic issues.

I remember in the mid 80s when she shot to fame, another popular female artiste Madonna was rivaling her for the spot of most popular female singer. Whitney banked on her faith and religious background, coming from a family rooted in Christianity, to declare she would provide a better role model than Madonna could. It is a pity that a bad marriage as well as drug addiction broke her life that it has to end this way. Whitney may be gone but her voice will pervade the music world for decades to come. My personal favorite is 'I Will Always Love You' from her movie 'The Bodyguard' she starred with Kevin Costner. And I believe this is what millions of her fans is saying the same to her now, Whitney we will always love you. If you could I know you would not choose to go this way. RIP.

Since I was referencing your website earlier, here is my thought: she might have drug induced higher BP , then taking a COLD shower perhaps, shrinking capillaries pushing BP even higher, so may have died from stroke! Houston was found in the bathtub of the room, hotel employees and people close to Houston told entertainment news website TMZ. Pill bottles were found at the scene, TMZ reported, citing "informed sources. CNN Source.

Was looking at a happy Whitney picture last night, one when she was younger and in her glory days. So happy, so sad. May she RIP.

The happiest person can be destroyed by bad relationship. I believe Whitney married the wrong guy who caused her downfall and death. Did she took her own life? Only she can answer that. May God bless her soul.
