For those blaming Bobby Brown, Whitney Houston was a grown woman and made all her own choices. There is no one to blame but her

What a great voice she had. And 48 is far too young.

I found out the news while I was having dinner with about 15 people and nobody was surprised (though they all did, apparently mistakenly assume it was an overdose).

With respect to Bobby - not sure that there is a "culprit" here as far as their joint addiction goes. I do think that sometimes, certain people tend to bring out the worst in each other in some respects and they pretty obviously weren't having a healthy relationship.

And the speculation begins. I guess it's natural to jump to conclusions, I had to stop myself from going there.

Judge not lest ye be judged.

Trying to just remember the good stuff during the early years. The amazing gift she had, the way we could see in to her soul and get a glimpse of God when she hits those high notes.

I was never a huge fan (too many ballads), but she has a lot of songs that I still like quite a bit (not the ballads), and always respected that voice. I should see what best of collections or out there ... or wait for the inevitable new one that will be coming out soon.

Edit: Ah, this one looks perfect. I wanted a CD with One Moment in Time and the anthem.

Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Kristina, was rushed to an LA hospital

This article says she was suffering from anxiety. Poor girl.

This is not surprising.
I would expect her to be traumatized and in some kind of shock. She needs to be around her family, grandmother and others that can make her feel safe and not abandoned.
It will take some time for her to be ok, again.

FYI, found this ... Edge may be at the Grammy Awards tonight:


Matthew Bell: The IoS Diary (12/02/12) - Commentators - Opinion - The Independent


Quote:
also on British Airways Flight 269 on Thursday was U2 guitarist The Edge, heading to LA for today's Grammy Awards. My man sipping a Bloody Mary tells me that while Owen was in premium economy, The Edge sat 10 metres ahead in business class (though not first). Both wore regulatory celeb-wear: Ricky in dark glasses, and The Edge a baseball cap, which remained fastened to his scalp throughout the 11-hour flight (though he was asked to remove it at passport control). And did the two meet? "They bumped into each other in the loo," yells my man down the line from the tarmac

the Grammys will have a pretty big ratings bump tonight

Etta James was going to be the most missed person, how do we quantify loss?

Simple: whoever gets the most applause during the death reel, wins.

I loved this reference by Isaac Hayes in one of his most famous songs: Simultaneous:
