    This is a surprise - I wouldn't have thought it. Rest in peace, Ms Houston.

    Nobody knows for sure. Allegedly, it happened at the Beverly Hills Hotel. Just a bunch of TMZ bullshit speculation is all the first link is (Finally loaded for me after three or four tries.)

    In the ABC link, no one really knows anything. Her publicist just said she'd passed. No details.

    I feel bad for her family, because it's so clear that she was self destructing for a long, long time.

    May she rest in peace.

    For those who can't see it - Report is from TMZ, I cld get in the link, it says very little... this is first para
    Whitney Houston died this afternoon ... a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

    According to our sources, Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. A police crime lab vehicle was seen outside the hotel just moments ago (see below).
    below is a pic of a crime lab vehicle...

    BBC now running story - they wouldn't run it unless its a fact.

    There are tons of stars staying at the Beverly Hills hotels tonight for the Grammy's and Clive Davis' BIG party tonight...she is usually the belle of the ball every year and they always go in together, quite sad. CNN and Don Lemon have respectful coverage on now.

    Not sure that those are signs of self injuring behaviors, but DAMN! Girl looks a HOT MESS.

    Any word on exactly how old those pix are? I know she's purported to have been clean for about a year and a half, but.....alas.

    She had one of the best voices in the history of pop music. Damn you, Bobby.

    Is she really dead or is it a John Bon Jovi kind of death?

    Not the greatest surprise, but very sad nonetheless.

    NO FREAKING WAY!

    This has to be some sort of sick sad joke.

    Dumbfounding, disbelief, shock.

    What a monumental waste if it is indeed true.

    So sad, no one will match "The Voice"

    I was looking forward to her Grammy performance within the next 24 hours..

    Rest in Peace

    Even though I don't listen to her anymore but I did growing up. I am sad to see that's she gone. RIP Whitney...

    I've shed numerous tears years ago over Whitney. Never have I been so touched by such a bright, wonderful ray of light that she and her voice and her magnificently-toned effervescence shed on me (and the rest of the world); only to be so devastated (for her) when she allowed some of life's perils to overcome her.

    This news has the tears welling up again. Notwithstanding all the really "important" (i.e., political) tragedies I've been witness to in my life thus far--well, this one eclipses them all in my heart.
