Did Whitney Houston Die

Whitney Houston has been an American icon for nearly three decades, her songs have been on the top of the charts since she came on the scene in the 1980s. Her voice has been the corner stone of her mega success and this is why she her death has brought on such grief to fans and people all over the world. Born Whitney Elizabeth Houston on August 9, 1963, she was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. Her elegant voice, and luscious smile captivated her fans.

Houston's list of awards includes two Emmy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 6-Grammy Awards, and 22 American Music Awards. She also has had a total of 415 career awards. Whitney is one of the world's best-selling music artists as she has sold over 175 million albums on a worldwide level. Her death comes as a shock to all, but the most curious thing we all want to know is, how did Whitney Houston die?

It has been known that she has had years of drug battling and the habit was hard to put away for her. Especially since her marriage union to Bobby Brown, it appears her life went into a downward tail spin. Many people blame Bobby for introducing drugs to her and ultimately ruining her career, legacy, and life. These same people are speculating, but for Houston to die at age 48 alone in her hotel room only gives the feeling that some kind of substance abuse was involved. Houston had continued her drug and alcohol abuse after her divorce to Bobby Brown.

Drugs and alcohol kinda don't care who you're married to or if you're dating or single. According to Yahoo, Whitney had a very difficult week. She was seen intoxicated a number of times. She was seen arguing and doing odd things such as hand-stands in the lobby of a hotel. She was even seen looking "tow-up-from-the-flow-up" with her hair drenched with water.

A few year ago, when rapper ODB came out of jail and was looking to make a comeback, before albums and touring could be completed, he died suddenly in what officials called a drug overdose. A relapse. Whitney Houston is speculated to have suffered from the same type of relapse. Getting ready for a mega Grammy Awards, Whitney may have dipped back into her horrible habit and suffered a heart attack in the process.

We are all going to miss her sorely. The world does not know the amount of talent we are going to bury; but we are thankful for her many positive contributions to society. Her brilliance in song, acting, and uplifting women will never be forgotten. While she may not have been an avid Christian, we can be sure her soul will be resting in peace. Some years prior she'd made a trip to Jerusalem to see the Holy Land, and had proclaimed herself a Hebrew Israelite (Bible Believers).

This did not stop her from abusing substances and is perhaps the hallmark of what ended her short yet precious life. Bobby Brown was performing live when the news was released, and reportedly broke down. It is sad, no matter if he is the blame for it or not, he has lost his ex-wife and we lost a beautiful songstress. We hope people will learn from this and stay away from all substance abuse.

Rest in Peace Whitney Houston; live on in your music.

One can only speculate, but other celebrities have been known to die after coming back from being clean. Going back to the habit can put to much strain on the heart, especially if the drugs are taken in the same quantity as when they were using. Whitney was a great talent!
