Well now her family can have closure in them knowing the real cause of death. She had a beautiful voice. So sad she killed it wth so many junk. Oh well no one can judge her addiction. Only she knew her struggles. R.I.P.................

People should understand that nothing about her life was private... She been in the lime light since she was a teen and all she wanted was privacy something she could never have. That alone could possibly push anyone over the ledge... On top of that it seems like she wanted love from someone, but holding the title of queen of r&b , the lover she wanted she couldn't have... Like phyliss hyman

And this is news why again?  Just another "Ghetto" entertainer that the media tried so hard to present as dignified and honorable.  No tears shed here, Next!

How vile! If you're not interested in the legend, YES, LEGEND, that was Whitney Houston, you shouldn't have bothered to read & comment on the article. In your simple words, "NEXT"!

So her life is less valuable because she's an entertainer? I'm also curious about your definition of "ghetto." Would you please elaborate? Also, is it possible that Ms. Houston was honorable and dignified? Did you know her?

No, you don't have to shed a tear and you can be annoyed that Ms. Houston's cause of death made the news.

Well, Firstly I served the country for ten years and sacraficed more than you could know.  Seen things I'm sure that you only see in movies or video games.  My statement is shared by more than you could imagine.  I have served my country, Have you smart ass?  What do you do for society, Watch "Dancing with the stars"?  Step off swiftly.

Naive, bigoted, militarily trained, no respect for others, and plenty of spare time.  Sounds like a recipe for disaster honestly.  If the NSA or FBI are on the lookout it should be for you.  They already have your info in their rolodex, after all.

I'm sure people can see your knocks on rap being 'primitive' and calling Houston a "Ghetto" entertainer for what they are. You might as well change your handle to 'Racist AZ Shit!'

In the words of Mark Twain, "Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference."  - & i shall do just that! I am no longer interested in responding to your calloused & benighted statements. Carry on!

Don't put God no where in this!! God does not make a mockery of anyone's pain, problems, or mistakes. And so what that you served the country for ten years. If you can't have respect for anyone else, then NO respect to you. Boom!! Do unto others as you would have them do unto you! *TING*

I've served my country for almost 52 years.  Does that make me smarter or better than you, Proud AZ Vet?  I fail to see how serving one's country automatically confers wisdom.
