Whitney Houston apparently drowned in her bath after ingesting a cocktail of prescription sedatives - the latest in a string of accidental celebrity overdoses on legal pills.

2010: In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, declares herself drug free. She would return to rehab in 2011.
2012: Dies at age 48 in a hotel room in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Feb. 11.

เธออกมายอมรับว่าได้ใช้สารเสพติดประเภทโคเคน กัญชา และยานอนหลับจำนวนมากจริง และไม่สามารถร้องเพลงที่ต้องใช้พลังในการร้องสูงได้อีกต่อไป // มิน่าช่วงหลังๆ ถึงไม่เห็นออก concert อีกเลย น่าเสียดายจริงๆ อย่างนี้ถือว่า บุญมี แต่กรรมตามทัน

KP// ปัญหาของฝรั่งมักจะเป็นยาเสพติด ส่วนปัญหาของคนไทย ก็คือโรคหูบอดตาดับคลั่งเจ้า โดยมีเหตุผลของความซาบซึ้งรองรับ น่าเสียดายจริงๆ ถ่ามีเจ้าก็เป็นอย่างนี้ แต่ถ้าไม่มีเจ้าจะเป็นอย่างไหน อุ๊ยตาย ... ห้ามคิด ห้ามถาม ห้ามสงสัย ลืมไปจริงๆ

อันนี้เป็นเรื่องที่มีคนเขียนเกี่ยวกับอีกมุมหนึ่งของ Whitney คือการที่เธอเป็น fundraisers ตัวเอ้ ... ยิ่งกว่าท่านพ่อคิมแห่งตอแหลแลนเสียอีก เพราะเธอรณรงค์หาเงินเอง โดยที่ไม่ได้ใช้ภาษีของประชาชน แถมยังไม่ทวงบุญคุณอีก ใครจะด่าจะว่าเธอเรื่องยาเสพติด ก็ไม่มีปัญหา ... เรียกว่า ใจกว้างพอ ไม่หน้าหนาอย่างใครบางคน ที่เป็นอีแอบอยู่หลัง ม.112

Lots of sad posts about Whitney Houston's passing earlier today. Many snide remarks about her drug addiction. Many videos of her singing will be posted. Many folks will post 140 character sentiments and hope others will see them as a profound statements or genius poetry. Truth be told, 99% of those people are just there for their own attention and don't know anything about the human who was Whitney.

I was not a huge fan. I knew her name and her music. Movies as well. Mostly what I knew about her was her addiction. It was the hottest news to be shared about the woman and was more widely know than her tops songs. I never saw people imitate her singing, unless it was displayed in parody with emphasis on her drug use. Other wise she was fodder for comedians and their writers. Sad tribute to a once highly esteemed star.

Before I considered commenting on her news, or even writing this post, I did some searching on Whitney and what she did with all her millions. Yes she lived well. Yes she was an addict. But surprising to me, and fairly obscured from the public, was her philanthropy. Whitney was a quietly charitable person. She donated her time and talent to fundraisers. She support many causes and had her own foundation the Whitney Houston Foundation for Children. It supports children suffering with cancer and AIDS. Her tried and true fans might know all of this. I as a general consumer was unaware because efforts like this aren't news worthy and go unseen.

Whitney will be missed by the masses for a few days. Her contributions, whether monetary or talent, will be missed deeply by these charities, organizations, and their beneficiaries for a long time to come. Hopefully this part of her life sees the light of day for at least a few moments. Hard to say if that will happen with the flash in the pan that is our modern day media.

I wan't an adoring fan. I am mostly cynical of the excesses of those in the entertainment industry. I only knew her for her music and her downfall with addiction. I am glad I stopped to look deeper. I now have a deep respect for her humanity.

It wasn't just that Jennifer Hudson sang her heart out to Whitney Houston's remake of "I Will Always Love You," maybe it's the way she ended the song with a haunting "Whitney, we love...we love...you,...

I blame the #Grammys for #WhitneyHouston's unexpected death. If only they would have nominated her CD "Born this Way" for album of the year then one of the industry's best baritones would still be alive. RIP WH!

A quick story about my seeing #whitneyhouston just a few years ago. I think she had checked herself into Rehab in Laguna, (in Orange County, California) recently. I was having dinner w/my husband & my parents in Seal Beach, CA... & in walks Whitney with (I think) her brother and his wife. I think they lived nearby. They were a couple of tables away from us. She had no makeup on, looked a little tired and seemed sad...but unmistakably Whitney. I remember thinking, she's so tall and so pretty. Her hair was curly and had a head band around it. She was wearing a long sweater layered over another sweater & boots. I remember because....well...how can you forget. She's a superstar and I was a big fan. I grew up listening to that beautiful voice, listening to her songs through my own loves & heartbreaks. I wanted to go up to her and tell her, but I wanted to respect her privacy. I saw her again out side as we were leaving...she was sitting on a bench talking on the phone. I looked back and silently wished her well and a better life ahead. Now thinking back, I kind of wished I had said something to her.
Rest in peace now Whitney. We will miss you.

I think in the last 10 years, we lost a lot of amazing celebrities. People with real talent. So sad... R.I.P. Whitney Houston. She will always be an inspiration. She was always one woman that never needs to show off her skin just to get recognition. She was just pure talent. #Whitneyhouston
