    Perezite must be thrilled now, there's always a huge spike in traffic on these rag websites when something like this happens



  2. 2

  3. 3

    that is so tragic! :(



  4. 4

    Drugs! very sad…



  5. 5

    come on that cant be it shes 48 the fans need to know what happened !!!



  6. 6

    The poor thing fought long and hard, but I guess in the end she just sort of wore out no matter what the cause. She sang one of the best renditions of the Star Spangled Banner ever. I hope her daughter doesn't follow her footsteps.



  7. 7

    oh my god…i could not believe this when i heard it, but wow… just awful news…
    RIP Whitney Houston!

    Saving all my love for you" doll, the bodyguard

    Dear God,
    Could you possibly reconsider taking this music icon from us? We will trade you Blohan or Kardashian or even both! Think about it! We have just lost one of the most talented singers of all time, the other two…..doubt we would miss them much. Just saying! RIP Whitney!



  10. 10

    So sad, but the party must go on with her body still in hte hotel. Self-absorded people.



  11. 11

    The world has lost another true talent. RIP Whitney



  12. 12

    Re: perez posse member 777 – How do we all conveniently forget she admittedly smoked crack for breakfast for the past years? Tragic, but not exactly surprising. Just look up a pic of how she looked this past Thursday coming out of Tru nightclub— NOT the picture of health. Re: PorshaJo – EXACTLY!! How the fuck is Lohan outliving all these people?!?!



  13. 13

    So sad…. :-(



  14. 14

    Sad that so many talented people in show business let drugs take over their lives. They start dabbling in drugs, thinking they can stop anytime they want. But soon the drugs consume their lives.



  15. 15

    Thoughts and prayers to her family. RIP Whitney.
    This is very sad.



  16. 16

    The cause of death is unknown pretty funny Perez we are not 5 year olds and know it's an overdose they just don't wanna say it yet to avoid hurting her family with negative comments. RIP Whitney you were truly talented but too bad for your drug habit.



  17. 17

    Re: futuremrslabeouf – temporary situation my dear, just look at her last pics, she won't last long!



  18. 18

    Ray J found her. Probably filmed it too. "I wanna dance with somebody" — Wait, not you, Whitney. Too soon?



  19. 19

    And as to be expected after a recording artist dies, she is blowing up Itunes. So sad how people don't remember you until you die.
    I'm pretty sure Madonna is pissed though that Whitney's Death is stealing her thunder…



  20. 20

    whitney houston was forced to lead a false life…. and not be true to who she really was…. This lead her to her drug use, drug abuse and ultimate demise…. The price she paid for Fame, fortune and international acclaim… RIP Whitney… You were truly "THEE VOICE"



  21. 21

    Re: CaritaDeCleopatra
    yeah I'm sure whitney said let me kill myself cause madonna is getting too much press…. LOL Ass!



  22. 22

    I'm so sad to hear that Whitney Houston has passed away. R.I.P



  23. 23

    Re: Louie G – Okay you obviously didn't understand what I was saying. I meant that that is how Madonna thinks, she is self absorbed.



  24. 24

    My deepest condolences to Whitney Houston's loved ones in this very difficult time. Despite her addiction let's not forget she was one of the greatest female singer, a mother, but most of all a human being. Rest in peace.



  25. 25

    Re: CaritaDeCleopatra – Thats a sick thing to say. Shame on u bitch



  26. 26

    omg, Linz just tried to get some geezer to buy her a watch booo on you perez :( Front page, all Whitney. Anything else is just simply gross….



  27. 27

    I just have a feeling she had a heart attack. I'm surprised she lived this long after seeing shows of her in the past online. You can't abuse your body for that long an expect to fully recover and live a long life. Unfortunate. Feel so sad for her family and friends. She was very talented but she let her demons destroy all that.



  28. 28

    Re: MissLeo – Agreed 100%! People are dying all over the world from illnesses they can't control. I love Whitney and her music and i'm so sad for her family esp her daughter. But lets call a spade a spade, she was a drug addict.



  29. 29

    Crack kills.



  30. 30

    " NO OBVIOUS SIGNS OF A CAUSE OF DEATH " ?? REALLY ?
    OH YEAH, AMY WINEHOUSE HAD NO OBVIOUS SIGNS OF A CAUSE OF DEATH AS WELL…..

    THERE IS ONE REASON AND SIGN OF DEATH HERE: " DRUGS, DRUGS, DRUGS "………..

    ANYWAY, THIS IS REALLY SAD…. SHE LOOKS SO SWEET ON RECENT PHOTOS…RIP



  31. 31

    Dearest Whitney…………..Houston,

    Oh my god! What can I say in your honor? You are, to me, quite simply the woman who possesses the most amazing musical talent in life!

    I say "possesses", because I know that you carry on, very much alive. Your voice, the message in it, the passion, the exact story your songs told, carry on.
    My teenage years will forever be relived to the sound and music of Whitney. She expressed, intonated the exact feelings I felt growing up. The urgency, the anguish, the search …… words will not do her justice.
    I hope and I know that she will go on to a different reality, one which will let her be at ease, at rest with who she is and what (the talent, the voice) life gave her.

    You will never be forgotten great woman! Rest in peace forever, Whitney Houston.



  32. 32

    Latest specualtion is she drowned in her bathtub :(



  33. 33

    Addiction is an illness and she should not be judged for it, assholes. As for this party, Clive Davis is a fucking dirtbag. Fuck yourself sir, and same to all of your guests who had the nerve to get all dolled up and smile of pics (and even shed a few tears during the "tribute") while her body was still in the building. So fitting. That's the "business" afterall. She was to good for this crap, probably why she turned to drugs. She had more talent than all of those performers there tonight. Oh, and I see KK was there boobs out all smiles. what trash..



  34. 34

    Re: CaritaDeCleopatra – You used her death as an opportunity to diss Madonna? lmao. Have Gaga fans sunk that low? You're a real piece of shit.



  35. 35

    Apparently,
    She was found in a bath tub, and there were prescription pills at the scene.
    She might've OD'd and drowned.



  36. 36

    WTF is resuscitate? heavens to mergitroid, exit stage left



  37. 37

    won't know for a few weeks if she OD'd… but, a friend's bf died at the age of 38, had a flu like virus, and then just died. Autopsey showed 'heart attack' -brought on by heart damage from drug use. Yes, I know others that are still living-stronger hearts I guess, or not as much damage-WH-so many times she has looked like death-who knows how bad her heart was from all that drug use. Did she ever think what was going to happen to her daughter? Not even 18 and bobby brown for a father. Where was she?



  38. 38

    SAD!



  39. 39

    OMG! So shocked! Can not believe she is gone. What a shame.



  40. 40

    I'm not a big fan of hers at all, (I did LOVE her rendition of The National Anthem) but this is such a tragedy. I hope she's found peace and I will be praying for Whitney's family.



  41. 41

    R.I.P Whitney



  42. 42

    Re: CaritaDeCleopatra – You're right… I'm sure Madonna upset that Whitney is getting press. You're obviously an IDIOT! Whitney dying is indeed tragic, but not a surprise! Leave Madonna alone!



  43. 43

    Sad.



  44. 44

    I think we all can agree that we were blessed to have Whitney's music in our lives. RIP Whitney.



  45. 45

    Perez, can't you even get the time right. You start a new thread and the information is wrong. She was dound by "a member of her entourage" around 3:23. EMS was already on the hotel grounds because they had a lot of people staying there and they had the Clive Davis event that night. So when 911 was called @ 3:23 the came right way and along with the hotel security they tried to give her CPR and revive her. After 20 minutes, she was still not responding so they called it @ 3:55. You can cut and paste this if you like. I got it from CNN & the L.A. Times.



  46. 46

    First of all, what about these details are "Updated"? this is the same sketchy details that were out yesterday.
    Secondly, I have little sympathy for her. She had all the money and resources to clean up if she wanted to. She wrote her own ticket.Nobody held a gun to her head and made her do the drugs. Yea I know…Addiction is a sickness, yadda yadda yadda.
    She could have kept trying to clean up and paid handlers to be sure she stayed straight.
    Its sad when anyone dies, but lets be honest here, people! Who didn't see it coming?

    Of course, I was very saddened when I heard the news last night….but it wasn't until this morning when I saw a news clip of Whitney Houston singing "I Will Always Love You" that it truly hit me. The woman could sing like no other;the world has lost a huge soul. R.I.P., beautiful one. And yes, Jesus Loves You.



  48. 48

    "no obvious signs of a cause of death", give me a break! How about a worn out body from years of drug abuse!

    "crack is wack" Whitney Houston, 2002



  49. 49

    What a tragedy for her loved ones, and such a loss to the world of music….I just read that Simon Cowell was 'considering' her for X-Factor….thank God she didn't get involved with him and all the stress that would have entailed. What an unparalleled combination of natural musical talent and beauty….



  50. 50

    Sad. What a waste. Her voice was epic. I really don't want to be harsh but she did it to herself..and that is selfish she slowy killed herself. She had so much talent and wasted it away along with the money. RIP. My heart goes out to her daughter.



  51. 51

    If I should stay,
    I would only be in your way.
    So I'll go, but I know
    I'll think of you ev'ry step of the way.

    And I will always love you.
    I will always love you.
    You, my darling you. Hmm.

    Bittersweet memories
    that is all I'm taking with me.
    So, goodbye. Please, don't cry.
    We both know I'm not what you, you need.

    And I will always love you.
    I will always love you.

    I hope life treats you kind
    And I hope you have all you've dreamed of.
    And I wish to you, joy and happiness.
    But above all this, I wish you love.

    And I will always love you.
    I will always love you.
    I will always love you.
    I will always love you.
    I will always love you.
    I, I will always love you.

    You, darling, I love you.
    Ooh, I'll always, I'll always love you

    Those are not new details those are the old details.
    So sad I just really hope it was not drugs. So she had a few cocktails a a few parties this week so what. I hope it was just an aneurysm or something. 48 & an Icon & a Mom to young to go.

    Am I the only person in the world who couldn't stand to listen to her voice? I was really sorry she got into drugs but relieved that she would never emit those overly loud dog yodeling sounds ever again. However, it is always a sad situation when somebody becomes a drug addict. Saying that, it is also no shock if they die prematurely when they flirt with death, like Michael Jackson and so many others. They have all the money in the world, and look what they do with it. Purchase death. But then again, I have never tried taking drugs, so I don't understand why people gamble with their lives like that. Are drugs ever worth it?
