I always had hope she would turn herself around.

At best a brief mention during Weekend Update or the goodbyes at the end.

Incidentally, Maya Rudolph, who always played Whitney on the show, will be hosting next week.

I would hope no one in your family ever has their lives messed up due to addiction since you, obviously, would not support their possible recovery. It's just not in their odds, right?

I somehow missed all her drug problems in recent years. I guess I don't read pop news enough. What a tragedy... she had a real gift.

If by "recent" you mean "for the last 15+ years she's been living on cocaine"?

Then yeah, her drug problems are 'recent'.

Still a bummer... Could have been her circulatory that was damaged by all those years of blow, she may well have been sober at the time of her demise. Too young, but she had a hell of a run though.

re: Whitney Houston dead UPDATE: Daughter also DEAD

Houston was last seen publicly on Thursday, when she appeared disheveled and disoriented in front of a Hollywood nightclub. According to the Hollywood Reporter, she got into an altercation with "X Factor" finalist Stacy Francis on Thursday at an event where she was said to be acting "belligerent."


Stacy Francis... seriously, your Whitney fucking Houston.!

Well, I would say to just not start doing drugs. It is a choice right?

I've no idea, but does that mean you can't hope for someone to be among those that do manage it?

You guys need to lighten up. I'm taking no pleasure in her death. Really don't care. I have zero sympathy for addicts though.

I'm just saying that, as far as I know, most addicts don't kick their addiction so it's no surprise that Whitney Houston died young, most likely from a drug overdose. Drug addicts die young. It's just how it is.

re: Whitney Houston dead UPDATE: Daughter also DEAD

Hard to believe that she's been in the music business for almost 30 years and not counting soundtracks, holiday albums she only has 6 studio albums. Such a waste. I was a fan of her music up until around 1995, then I just didn't care anymore, especially after she married Bobby Brown, started doing drugs and behaving erratically.

I hope she finds peace on the other side. RIP Whitney Houston.

re: Whitney Houston dead UPDATE: Daughter also DEAD

I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's drug related.

Once again, hard to feel sorry for someone who's been given a huge opportunity for a great life and had so much financial security - but chose to just throw it away on drugs. Stupidity is the word for it.

Not a fan of her music at all, but it's still sad. Heard the news on a radio station between songs on our way home from dinner tonight. Strange that we had the radio on because we rarely listen to the radio.

RIP Whitney, but Shane MacGowan (ex of The Pogues) is still going strong:

Cattle stampede through the Beverly Hills Hilton, I bet they would have rather had that then her droping dead in on of their rooms.
