Whitney Houston dead at 48
No. No. No. No. No.
Whitney Houston is dead. She was 48.
Whitney Houston, who reigned as pop music’s queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, 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 unknown.
At her peak, Houston the golden girl of the music industry. From the middle 1980s to the late 1990s, she was one of the world’s best-selling artists. She wowed audiences with effortless, powerful, and peerless vocals that were rooted in the black church but made palatable to the masses with a pop sheen.
Whitney Houston’s publicist has confirmed the 48-year-old singer has died.
Kristen Foster says the cause and location of her death is not yet clear but media reports say she died at the Beverly Hilton hotel.
TMZ is reporting that a police crime lab vehicle has been seen outside the hotel.
Our sources tell us a member of Whitney’s entourage found her in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel … and called hotel security — who then dialed 911. When paramedics arrived Houston was found unresponsive.
We’re told police arrived to the scene within minutes and fire was already there on an unrelated call. According to our sources, paramedics performed CPR but it did not work and she was pronounced dead at 3:55 PM.
Our sources say there were no obvious signs of foul play, but BH PD detectives have begun a full investigation. We’re told she was ID’ed by family and friends.
Whitney Houston had been staying at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in preparation for the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy party on Saturday night.

Got Something to Add?
What's weird is that I just watched a Behind the Music on VH1 about Bobby Brown. They stated she said she didn't do drugs, OMG, it was obvious she did. Now look at her. I say if she didn't die of an overdose she died of drug use complications.
I thought she was making a comeback and back to her beautiful self with her beautiful voice. This is truly so sad.
Yeah, not surprising at all unfortunatly. Hopefully she'll be remembered for her time as one of the greatest singers instead of being a drug addicted hasbeen.
How sad! She was just in the news that I watched last night; I guess it was a replay of ET. And she was not looking too good. :(
@fuckhead because the last time I saw her she was on Oprah, looking very with-it and together. Last night Clive Davis was talking about her talent on Piers Morgan = she was in LA for his party tonight. It's shocking news.
