    Whitney Houston dead at 48

    The Associated Press: Whitney Houston, superstar of records, films, dies

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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.

    Re: Whitney Houston dead at 48

    By far the most talented singer of our generation.

    I kinda thought he songs sounded boring the same but she was banging hot cute and had the pipes. RIP Whitney

    First the King of Pop dies, then the Queen of Crack, whats next?? the Prince of Snap? If so, we may have a stellar Rice Krispies superbowl commercial on the way. Deceased singers need sponsors too. RIP
