Words cannot describe how amazing she was, so I will just say this...

 

The world has lost another great legend. May you rest in peace Whitney <3

I'm sorry if it's not available to you :-/ I have put another video in, let me know if that works ^_^

 

I chose the video from Whitney Houston's Vevo channel of her in 'The Bodyguard' movie. I cannot tell which videos are available to everyone, so if someone knows a video of Whitney singing 'I will always love you' in 'The Bodyguard' movie which has available viewing to everyone, please post it here and I will edit the first post :-)

She was good in her prime, but I don't see why people are making such a huge deal over her death. She hasn't been relevant in over ten years.

 

Maybe I'm just too young?

actually, I'm not mad at you or mad at all, I'm more amused that this is mostly for the U.S, but the broadcast isn't even available to the U.S

 

anyways, her death is no shocker, reasons being from what others have said here already

 

also, 300 posts :thumbup:

:wall:

 

Whitney Houston didn't have a "prime." She had a "being Whitney Houston."

 

So sad she's gone. :(

Apparently her death from overdose is a rumor. This means I don't know if anything of it is true or not. Probably is not true that she is still living seeing as I only found 1 source saying so, so she probably died.

It is all over the news (including here in New Zealand) as well as the official world wide 'wikipedia' website, so she has definitely passed away.

 

Also, @Nomrombom & RpgGamer, could we please keep the crack/drug jokes away from here? I already had to get a forum mod to lock my tribute thread to her on the runescape forums due to people making jokes and small digs like that. Thanks.

Really sad news to hear, weird how I never find out these things by watching the News.

I find out these deaths from Tipit or being on Runescape.

 

But really sad, not completely unexpected though. RIP Whitney Houston. :/

Agreed. I was surprised/shocked, but it wasn't unexpected either. Ironically I too find out about these things on RS or Tip.it before the whole world knows. I found out about Whitney's death today via a Runescape player. It was only 2 hours later that it was on the main news channel over here.

Yeah, it's how I found out about the death of Amy Winehouse, and I think Michael Jackson too. It just comes as a massive shock to me for some reason, when it's inevitable anyway.

I don't know why I get so surprised when I hear this sort of 'news'. It's like these stars have their 'prime' time, and then you hear a little bit about their 'struggles' and such, and then they fade into the background.

You know about them but you don't really follow their lives, and then they die and all of a sudden they were 'so loved' and they suddenly get like number 1 hits and things.

It's just a mystery to me sometimes, I'm included in the population that suddenly starts listening to all of their music tracks and things. Really sad stuff. I wasn't a huge fan but it still hits me.

RIP.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if it was drug related though; it's pretty well known she had problems with a variety of drugs.

My parents went to see her in concert last year and said she was terrible. They are fans of hers, but said she physically just couldn't sing any more and there were lots of people boo'ing. I've also heard she's been boo'd of stage in a few concerts recently too.

 

Really not surprising to hear, as she has probably done a lot of the damage herself.

She never got her voice back after her battles with addiction, but she kept trying and she had my respect for that alone. It's sad to see her pass away.

Again, shades of Winehouse who was herself booed off at various shows/award ceremonies. It's high-time we properly explored this inexplicable relationship between fame, wealth, and drugs.

 

Until then, we'll carry on losing the incredible talent these two women undeniably had.

There's nothing to explore. Cash is king and it opens doors to places the common man can't access. Coupled with being celebrity, and you sadly have a get-out-of-jail-free card for most offenses.

Im the most irresponsible person in the world. The reason Im like that is because, at 21, you all gave me $50 or $100 million, and I didnt know what to do. Im from the ghetto. I dont know how to act. One day Im in a dope house robbing somebody. The next thing I know, Youre the heavyweight champion of the world. Who am I? What am I? I dont even know who I am. Im just a dumb child. Im being abused. Im being robbed by lawyers. I think I have more money than I do. Im just a dumb pugnacious fool. Im just a fool who thinks Im someone. And you tell me I should be responsible?

The LA Times is saying she might have drowned in her bathtub.

 

First it was said that her bodyguard found her passed out, then that someone found her in the bathroom, now that she drowned in the tub?

 

Inconsistencies >_<'

Her bodyguard could have easily found her passed out after drowning in her bathtub. Unless of course she was forcibly drowned, in which case her bodyguard sucks hard.

I...wasn't joking?

 

you'd be a fool not to rule out the substantial possibility.

Not really surprised, it's sad to see such talented individuals pass so early in life. I assume if she drowned she passed out from a massive amount of downers? I'd say tomorrow it will be ruled drug related death because of her past history.

BBC news this morning said there was nothing suspicious, but they don't have the toxicology results yet.
