Whitney and Winehouse a few months apart– I’m always sickened by the fact that millions of singers and musicians who are much more talented, disciplined and worthy never make it, while terrible people like Houston and Winehouse get it all handed to them on a silver platter, fame, wealth and stardom, and they piss it away basically because they can’t handle having all the money in the world with which to party.
It reminds me of the PBS special about cocaine where the monkey will keep pushing the button and doing more and more cocaine until it dies. RIP Whitney (Rest In Pipe)
I’ll remember her with a crackpipe in her mouth, or butchering the Nat’l Anthem by changing the melody and chord pattern (hey, she’s just improving on the original, and she’s a star, after all!).
I’m a firm believer in Karma, and while good people get diseases and are involved in accidents, most of the people who OD are bad people who deserve it. They caused a great deal of heartache, harm and pain to others in their life and nothing so becomes them in this world like the leaving of it.
