    philbill43 I wouldn't mind her prnivog me wrong, but I think the meth and/or coke (whether crack or free-base) smoking has permanently damaged her lungs, if not her vocal cords (with less capacity she can no longer force the volume of air through them needed to hit some of those notes, so it *could* be her throat's still fine and she just needs aerobics and cardio workouts to regain the voice').

    Terrible. She looks really doped up. She just completely lost her looks, voice and obviously her mind.

    She look really bad. Why people worship drug users? She die because she use too many drugs. No person to glorify.

    I really do believe that Whitney was murdered by executives at Arista records because she had become a liability to them no longer able to sing but stll under contract to be paid, people no longer wanted to see her live but preferred her records, unfortunately, record companies cannot make it on the recordings alone, they need public appearances in the form of concerts its the best way of promoting the record and the artist himself. this picture you see was posted on the website: BlackPlanet.com and underneath it the cption read "Is Whitney Houston suicidal?" 2 days later Whitney ends up dead.............. what a coincidence. The person who took the pictures probably wanted to create the illusion or the image that Whitney was suicidal hoping that once they kill her no one would suspect murder but quick to believe it was suicide and the y wold get away with it

    sheshe(grammar much)? it makes no difference whether you are famous or not, drugs do bad things to your body, yourself, and cause harm to your family. My statement is based on the fact that she was a "role model"(in the lightest sense of that term) to youth and this is what she portrays outward and in the end these kids see this.

    Totally disagree with you stating she thought she was invincible. Then why do the average person not in the lime light do drugs? Just because they our individual who posses a talent and have been fortunate to make a career with their skills does not exempt them being human and flawed with weakness. From my understanding most people use drug as a coping mechanism and some people have been blessed to with stand the pressure of life which keeps them from using drugs but that doesn't mean they do not have of addition of some sort!

    Very well said! Stop making excuses for these people and HELP them if you are all so concerned and in love with them. They are killing themselves and they are portraying this type of behavior to the youth of today! get a grip folks... it is in deed a tragedy that this beautiful talented star wasted her life away for some drugs and booze, but it is what it is. she chose every one of her decisions and now she has reaped what she has sewn just like many before her.

    So true! I do not understand why everyone is trying to make these photos so tragic. She had a night out and was sweaty. She had her people around her. I think they just caught her mid-phrase or something like that. I have pics like that. Stop it, media!

    Kayla1... I agree with you. and klassy, someone needs to say something to get the point across that drugs and alcohol and partying lifestyles are not the "cool" thing to do, b/c you are right, she is dead, and that lifestyle is what got her to that point! karma has nothing to do with anything. This is just another case of a "celebrity" thinking that they are invincible and they are not! It is such a shame that these people are role models for today's youth.

    You all are overlooking the obvious...It is your attitude and denial that led to her death. No one had the nerve to tell her she needed help. She was a drunk, pill popping, crack smoking has been. NO ONE DARED TO HELP HER. Your making excuses for her is exactly what caused her death. No one in her inner circle would stand up and do something... They just deflected with statements such as yours.

    The media is ridiculous group of money hungry sensationalistic cretins who have no respect for people's pain. She looks like someone who just finished having a great time dancing. There is sweat in her hair and on the front of her dress. There is a video posted that shows more than these brief conjectured moments in time with false captions and she was completely appropriate in her behavior. Thus far all we have is speculation. For her family and the families of all who lose people suddenly this is a heartbreaking moment. Show some respect.
