    Its a real shame.
    I remember when she 1st hit the scene. I had an album of hers. I dont know if drugs caused her career to dwindle or what but there is no denying she had talent.It really is a shame how she fell victim to substance abuse.

    As to:



    Please look at the top of the page:




    Jeez .... Can't please everyone! It's offseason. What is going on with the Ravens in the next month? Not a lot to discuss: 24x7 name change, draft speculation, then what?

    It will get moved ... tomorrow. For right now: if you are like me, you come to 24x7 before reading the news.
    The problem is people dont read everything about a sight or they feel that if it is off season stuff it should still be about the ravens

    Breaking news from the AP: Whitney Houston, who reigned as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, has died. She was 48. Publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unclear.
    TRAGIC end to a young and extremely talented individual...one can not imagine the pain she felt prior to the end. RIP, and God Bless!!...

    Very likely a tragic end to a life that, while full of fame and fortune, was itself tragic. I don't know whether to feel sorry for her or happy that she's not suffering anymore.

    Maybe they couldn't hear her screaming for help from her bathroom because she had her music on in the living room and passers by couldn't tell the difference!

    I hardly consider this a tragedy. 9/11 was a tragedy. Presidential assinations are a tragedy. People being killed by drunk drivers are tragedies.

    Whitney was an amazing talent who made some bad choices and became addicted to drugs. She had all the money and resources in the world to get better but it was always clear from her responses that she was in denial. She made a lot of bad choices, like Bobby Brown, for instance. Addiction can be a tough thing, and I'm not minimizing people that have, or have had them in the past, but I can't feel sorry for her.

    Now she just joins a long list of celebratards that died to young because of their lifestyle choices.

    No no no no you are completely wrong. 9/11 was not a tragedy. Neither were any of the presidential assassinations. And people senselessly killed by drunk drivers certainly aren't tragedies!

    Stories like Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse fit the description of a tragedy. We could all see their deaths coming. They were once great buggy had that one fatal flaw that eventually destroyed everything.

    (a tragedy is when someone's death was inevitable because of one fatal flaw. All of the things you mentioned are the complete opposite of a tragedy. They are just disgusting and senseless tragic events.)

    Well you aren't wrong because the things you mentioned are tragedies just not the type of tragedy that people on this thread meant when they said it.

    so if a family member had an addiction you wold not try ot help them? and if they died from it you would not show up to the funeral? come on IT IS STILL SAD to anyone who has a soul you would not want it to happen to your family and then hear someone tell you I dont feel sorry for your mom,dad etc. because she was a druggie that is just disrespectful. I prayer for her family and friends that they have the strength to carry on.

    I'm just shocked. I have all her songs and loved her. The BODY GUARD
    was a great flick.

    RIP

    COMPLETELY messed up my night yesterday. It's crazy how someone dying can touch you. I wasn't even a big fan of hers but something about how tragic it was, really got to me. I hope that Whitney finds the peace in the afterlife, that she couldn't attain in this life.
