So sad to hear that Whitney Houston died.....not really a surprise,
but what a shame. Prayers go out to her daughter and family.
I don't know if she died from drugs, but it seems like that might be
What a shame- and how ironic how all the perils of fame that Barry
sang about in "15 Minutes" is just so true for so many entertainers
like Whiteny Houston and Amy Whitehouse. Marvin
CNN is saying she was at the hotel for Clive Davis' party tonight pre-
Grammys (Beverly Hilton)....boy, this is sure going to make all the
festivities seem weird. Supposedly Ray J was with her or found her
(Brandy's brother). It's going to be a very somber Grammy Awards.
Wonder if Barry was planning to go to Clive's party?
Relieved to hear Barry didn't go ...he sure didn't need the stress,

TMZ had two photos that some paparazzi took in an article on her.
In both photos Whitney did not look very good. Then I saw an article
on Yahoo that said it was unclear if Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party
would go on. I'm sure Barry is upset that his old label mate has
passed on. Amy Winehouse and now her. It will most likely come
out that she was doing drugs again. The photos of her I saw on TMZ
didn't look like she was sick. They looked more like she was out of
it or she was on something.
Chaka Khan spoke about the dangers of the music industry that may have
influenced Houston and her battle with addiction.
"I think we all, as artists, because we're highly sensitive people,
and this machine around us, this so-called 'music industry,' is such a
demonic thing," she told Morgan. "It sacrifices people's lives and
their essences at the drop of a dime...I had a manager once say to me,
You know you're worth more money dead than alive."
The singer expressed the most concern about Clive Davis' decision to
move forward with his pre-Grammy party on the night that Houston
passed away in the same hotel that she died in.
"I thought that was complete insanity," Khan said. "I don't know what
could motivate a person, to have a party, in a building, where the
person, whose life he had influenced so enormously, and whose life had
been affected by her...I don't understand how that party went on."
Sharon Osbourne, the wife of Ozzy Osbourne and co-host of The Talk,
admitted that she could not make it to Davis' party after hearing
about Houston's death.
"I didn't go to the Clive Davis party," she told E! News. "I do not
know how people could have gone to the party knowing that Whitney was
still in that building dead."
