<div class="quote-block">Whitney Houston is dead at 48 years old.<br><br>
The superstar singer and actress's publicist, Kristin Foster, broke the news of Houston's passing to the AP. She was found and pronounced dead at the Beverly Hills Hilton on Saturday afternoon; thus far, no cause of death has been revealed. In recent years, she struggled with drug abuse.<br><br>
Her self-titled debut album, released in 1985, sold 25 million copies worldwide. In total, she released seven albums and three film soundtracks; a winner of six Grammys, Houston sold over 200 million albums and singles worldwide. She earned 30 Billboard Awards, 22 American Music Awards and two Emmy Awards.</div>

I wasn't going to start a new thread on this, but I was reading the news reports about her death, and apparently <i>Tony Bennett</i> said "let's legalize drugs". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":surprised">

I saw this on Sky news a few hours ago. Apparently there are reports saying it is a bathtub death.</div>

What exactly is a bathroom death? Suicide? Slipping in the bathtub?<br><br>
I wasn't a fan at all but it's still sad that she was so addicted to drugs and now her kids have lost their mother. Although they probably lost her a long time ago. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

It is when you drown in the bath tub.<br>
It is more often due to taking some kind of substance which makes you drowsy. I don't think that you could actually commit suicide by drowining in a bath tub.

She has one daughter called Bobi.<br>
There is going to be an autopsy so there has still not been an official statement giving the cause. There has been a lot of speculation concerning the cause of death.

So sad. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br>
Though there has been no announcement of cause of death, I have a sinking feeling it is drug related. Too many young lives lost to this epidemic. RIP Whitney, hope you find peace.

I doubt it had anything to do with drugs but, we better not speculate its already sad, however I did read the bathtub thing also, so what I think is that she probley took way too much drugs and decided to take a bath and she was alone and something went wrong or she feel asleep and drowned herself because she was warn out, there are clips of her singing at a club Jesus Loves me and you barely able to notice her voice.

Death isn't that uncommon when you give up your music career to concentrate on cocaine for twenty years.

She made decent music, but she did it to herself with her drug use. People get too worked up about things like this. Thousands of people died that day. Many of them were probably totally amazing people, and many didn't engage in self destructive habits. I care no more for her passing than any of the other deaths that occurred that day. The only difference is that I know her name and face. Yeah, it's sad. But in the end, everybody dies, especially when they poison themselves.

So you think it was because of drugs or not?

I feel sorry for the daughter. Her parents really had it all at one point, and then not only lost a lot but humiliated themselves on national television--the details of their dirty laundry for all to see. I remember one clip of their reality show with the drugs and squalor, and I felt the producer was taking advantage of their vulnerable state.<br><br>
Their behavior was out of control--I feel sad for the kids (aren't there several?).<br><br>
I see this stuff everyday at my job, very sad that people make bad choices and then suffer terrible consequences.
