As usual when an artist dies their life is somehow elevated to God like status. One of the headlines in the LA Times said " Whitney Houston's voice was life changing ",
That is effen hysterical.She never changed my life . What I'll remember about WH is she had a amazing voice that was a God given talent and pizzed it away with drugs and alcohol.What I'll remember is her drunk,demanding, erratic,embarrassing behavior at parties before and after award shows.Not one time when she walked off stage or her concert was canceled 30 minutes in that the fans "she loved"were reimbursed there money. The media in LA slobbers over celebrities and elevates them to ridiculous heights. When Michael Jackson died the local commentaries and some of the articles that were written were hysterical.I always find it funny to see some of these morons with no jobs blubbering on the the Walk Of Stars.I was a big fan of Frank Sinatra and was in Vegas when he passed away. I didn't see anyone throw themselves in Caesars fountain and wail like a idiot.
The voice floats confidently but quietly in the first few lines of Whitney Houston's version of "I Will Always Love You," the song for which the superstar vocalist, who died Saturday of undetermined causes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, will always be remembered. Hear it rush out of the radio unexpectedly, and it has the power to transform your world.
