Sadly this morning most of us woke to the news that the highly talented Whitney Houston had died at the age of 48.
Reports are flying in as to what has happened but sadly it does appear to be drug related.
She’s had problems for years & seemed to be having to deal with the demons in her life.
Could she have been helped?
I’d like to think yes but doesn’t a person have to want to be helped to be saved?
Should we still be shocked by deaths like these in the showbiz circles?
So many have hit rock bottom & very few have made it back up there again.
Death’s like these are not new, it’s just now the media seem to publish more about them.
Is that our ghoulish need for details that make’s the media go into as much detail as possible?
I personally wouldn’t buy a paper just to read about how someone died!
Does the media intrude in the families who are grieving?
Does the public need to know every last details of a celebrity’s life?
Do they not deserve some privacy?
Ok I admit there are some “stars” who play to the media & enjoy the coverage they get, there was even reports that certain celeb’s even tip off the media as to their whereabouts if there is no pap’s around just so they get in the paper’s.
I don’t care how may time’s they’ve been to the loo that day or what they had for lunch or how much their gas bill was!
Whitney had a turbulent life with massive high’s & degrading lows.
The touch-paper was primed it just needed igniting.
She’s been a victim, was that the start of her downfall?
Is fame worth the cost of someone’s life?
She leaves behind her 19yr old daughter who has spent so many years watching her mom tear herself apart.
None of us know just how Whitney was feeling inside & we never will.
This picture is 1 of the last taken of her:-
However it happened, whatever the reason the 1 thing that remains with us is her music & her movies.
Most of us have seen The Bodyguard with her & the gorgeous Kevin Costner & fell in love with him on sight!
Whitney, you have left us the wonderful legacy of your music & your beautiful voice & yes it’s a cliché but
WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.
