Whitney was to attend Clive Davis‘ annual party at the Beverly Hilton Hotel this evening. TMZ also reports that Whitney had spoken to her cousin Dionne Warwick and mother Cissy Houston just before her death about attending the party and that everything seemed fine.

  • First female artist to debut an album at number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart
  • Appeared in four films, including 2012′s Sparkle
  • Only artist with at least one Grammy, Emmy, MTV Video Music Award, MTV Movie Award, People’s Choice Award, and Billboard Music Award to their name.

RIP

Whitney Houston, >>>I will always love you<<<

RIP Whitney , my golden voice songstress.

…another talent who left us :(

Well a room full of people who did not notice that Whitney was not well!
R Jay her drug dealer ..! Please this was another over dose just like
That she was on the floor no one was upset on the phone wanting to know what to do. Again delayed calling 911 until it was too late! Just
Wonder why she was lying on the floor fainted , no one cared enough
Too see how she was feeling! Another overdose Michael Jackson
Heath Ledger etc. Except this time having a publicist who does not want
To ruin her reputation!

May You Find Your Peace Ms Whitney

NO MATTER WHAT U BEEN THRU OR WERE GOING THRU DOESNT AFFECT THE IMPACT U HAD ON OUR LIVES U & YA MUSIC WAS TRULY AN INSPIRATION 2 US MAY U RIP & MAY GOD BLESS U & YA FAMILY DURING THIS TIME OF NEED MAY WE ALL LIVE ON THEU YA SPIRIT-LOVE-MUSIC THANKS REE & FAMILY

Wonder how Patrick Bateman feels about this?

i think she can no longer sing like before and shes afraid to sing at the grammys thats why

Whitney was gorgeous and so talented. Then she met the devil…BOBBY BROWN! Wonder if he’ll play the sympathy thing. Meanwhile, he’s the one that got her started. Shame on him

Of course she’ll be missed – as anyone who passes would be. If this wasn’t an overdose, it was certainly as a result of a weakened system because of her previous ingestion habits. If you’re not bright enough to avoid drugs then………

Thank you for singing some of the most beautiful songs we will ever hear. Your talent was unsurpassable. I’m so sorry life was so messy for you. We will miss you, Whitney.

RIP Whitney…. Ur songs are awesome… We’ll miss you…

u’re such a great singer… U r one of a kind… Rest in Peace…

She could have died from an aneurysm or something. That’s the only explanation I can come up with. I really don’t think it was drugs, unless it was an accidental overdose.

RIP ma gal whit!! damn! still shocked! will always love you, you shall be missed <3

Rest in Peace Whitney,,the greatest singer,,you will be remember.
Prayers to all her family…

One of the greatest singers ever. May she find peace in the next life.

Janice Carreon @ 02/12/2012 at 12:10 am

my idol…rest in peace=(
you’re such an icon…and we will always remember you thru your songs…

Such a talented star for so many years.
RIP Whitney Houston.

We will surely miss you WHITNEY. From The PHILIPPINES

RIP Whitney Houston, this is such a sad day… I like this song the best : http://www.weekplay.com/i-will-always-love-you-video-whitney-houston.html

R.I.P. I loved your music!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its sad to seee someone die so young!

Yup,humans have a strong desire to place the blame on someone or something especially in a tragic situation…so we blame BB for her death. Really? So she wasn’t a grown woman, fully capable of making her own choices? BB may have introduced her to drugs but she had the power to walk away from the destruction at any given time. No one held a gun to her head and forced her to abuse drugs for years and years to come. She had the wealth,the smarts and the love of SOOOOO many other’s,so stop the blame game.She now is yet another example that we have to teach our children why it is wrong to abuse drugs.May she sing with perfect angels…RIP.

@Marie: @Marie: i dont know how you can be so suprised it is well known shes been using hard drugs for many years. Without professional help it was really a matter of time

groovemachine @ 02/12/2012 at 1:01 am

F’n crack hoe.
of coarse it was drug related….. if not from immediate use then from heart failure due to years of extensive rock smoking.
it’s too bad but 48 yrs old is a long life for a crackhead.
all kinds of good living non-crackheads probably died today in various stages of their lives too… every one of them is more deserving of my thoughts then Whitney is.
Condolences to those who actually care about her.

@Yessssssssssss: No I’m afraid it’s drink & drugs killing these people.

Beaver Paras @ 02/12/2012 at 1:18 am

She was very popular in our country-Philippines, she was most admired by many filipinos, infact, almost in all our TV networks, she was given a tribute for the greatest contribution she ever had in all her hit songs.

Bradley Bobst @ 02/12/2012 at 1:20 am

Today The Music world has lost one of the greatest and Beautiful Voices of All Time Whitney Houston She will be truly and Deeply Missed by her Fans and The Music World RIP Whitney Houston we will always love you.

R.I.P. Whitney Houston

SHE WAS A LEGEND OF ALL TIMES …MAY WHITNEY REST IN PIECE

R.I.P Whitney, you were great

listentoyourheart @ 02/12/2012 at 2:41 am

On more than one occasion my heart has told me to write to Whitney and tell how much she is missed and that she is a valuable human being, but I hesitated because I thought, “What difference will it make, who am I”? And then just this week she was on my mind. I’ve made up my mind to tell more people I love them and what they mean to me, no matter who it is. Its the living that can make a difference. She inspired me in many ways.

Rest well my baby. Thanks for serenading me last night. Your last hoorah. Never again will there be another you. Never.

It really hurts how can we be losing all our great musicians not long ago Michael left us and you also gone.RIP Whitney we know u still with us.

larry ajasa @ 02/12/2012 at 3:10 am

i can’t still believe what is happening in this word, good people don’t live long but bad people live long why? I will miss you so much whitney houston and your songs will remain evergreen in my heart. P.I.P whitney.

May her soul rest in peace!

she has a God given talent, so sad she’s gone but she will never be forgotten, Farewell to a genius singer…

i cant beleived she was died…oh my god what happen… she the best singer ever!

Rest in peace, Whitney Houston. You portrayed the Greatest Love of All in your legendary music. It made me and many others So Emotional and gave us a time in difficulties to Exhale. You Almost Had It All. You helped me realise countless things that are priceless, never mind worth just a Million Dollar Bill. You Were Loved…. then in just One Moment in Time, All At Once….. I have to say “Rest in peace, Whitney Houston.”

que dieu la bennice

alma Prell @ 02/12/2012 at 4:10 am

We are crying for this new so we do not believe it .It’s too early.
No matter we never forget you.

lisah fischer @ 02/12/2012 at 4:29 am

may her dear soul rest’in peace,,her legacy leaves on ….

TIMEKEEPER @ 02/12/2012 at 4:30 am

My heart is breaking. Yes she had suffered from addictions, but her voice was so beautiful. We all should concentrate on sending love and prayers to her mother Cissy Houston, and daughter Bobbi Christina. This is what is really important now. God called her home so she can rest. Let us all feel the gratitude and thanks that we had her around as long as we did. The world has become a little darker today, and God speed Whitney, may you live to the fullest in the next life.

This is tragic and very sad, but classic, in that it does not surprise me at all !!! this is the ultimate outcome of drug addiction!!! A one way ticket to an early grave!!! Elvis, Janice joplin, marilyn Manroe, Rick James, Kieth Ledger, Anna Nicole Smith ect, ect, ect, and the list goes on and on and on!!!!

When are these talented people gonna get it ??? Too much money= too much fun, and these people play too hard !!!

Whittney was a great talent, this is very sad !!!

YAY! No more Twitney!
Drugs will do it to ya every time, and lets not get carried away and say all these great things about her, SHE IS, sorry, WAS A DRUG ADDICT.
The world is a nicer place without her.
Now to work on Bobby.

Oh how I love Whitney!! I feel so sad. She was so talented and beautiful! She graced our world with the most beautiful songs ever. She shall be greatly missed! RIP Whitney.

rest in peace Whitney, you will be sadly missed in Africa…..

I still can’t believe she’s dead. Everyone knew she had a problems but Whitney’s death is shocking anyway.

UNKNOWN CAUSES! I DONT THINK SO!

Like Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston has also been a victim of the music industry ruthless mafia. it is not personal, ITS BUSINESS!!!

R.I.P We will surely miss you , NICE SONGS gosh i cant blv !!

We gon miss her soooooo much,R.I.P Whitney

Earlrica Phillip (Ayana) @ 02/12/2012 at 11:32 am

Whitney you are d best thing that has ever happened to music. The angels in heaven lent you to the rest of the world so you can bless our hearts with sweet music. Now i think that it is time for you to go back to them.

“You are the greatest love of all” >>>>>I will always love you>>>>>

Condolences extended to her relatives, friends and fans. Be strong and of good courage.

RIP Whitney……………………

@mimmie baaname: i know right that was my girl to i really hate this im just praying for the family

whitney was a great singer until she met that Devil of a guy Bobby Brown who could only pay her back by killing her,never gave her the ove and attention she needed,but some how he must pay back some day,Whitney may your soul rest in perfect peace till we meet again
I know God loves you most thats why we dont have to ask why you because we will never fine an answer;So many Whys at the end of the day the angels will come from heaven and will say IT IS GODS WILL

Am never forget here Voice and i am all ways listen to here songs especially to the lovely song (One moment in time),

An Icon gone home ,grew up with the songs she song loved them all,my heart goes out to her daughter,mother, brother,an aunt and the many fans another soldier gone home.

if i were have a power i shut have to make her life back by withney houston

oooooooooooooooh it was my morning day to hear that msssssssssss withney houston her death.
if i were have a power i would like to give her back to alife mss withney houston.

RIP Sister, you’ve seen it and that’s why you looked to him before parting this sinful world of ours. RIP again.

No one ever sang the Star Spangled Banner like you did Whitney.
I shall never, ever, forget that ‘moment in time’. Thank you so much
for sharing your gift with us. I shall never forget you. ‘I will always love you’.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they will be comforted.
No one of us knows what we will do or become before our time on earth ends.
So it behooves now of us to judge or pass judgement.
Instead of judging, why can’t we not pray that a situation like this does not occur in another family.
Whitney was a daughter, a mother, a sister, a niece, a cousin and so much more.
When my brother passed away, some folks in our community before they sympathise, during our time of grief, they were making negative comments, even though during his good times, he helped so many. It hurts. So I am beseeching, even begging people to desist in making hurtful and negative comments, please stop.

He who hath no sin, cast the first stone, that means everyone. Let us show love to the family, friends and fan. God Bless each and everyone.

Lashawnn Anderson @ 02/15/2012 at 8:52 am

Rest in peace Whitney. Your mission was accomplished . Your music will forever live on I will also continue to pray for your daughter, mom and the rest of your family to God be the glory!…
