Whitney Houston: Dead at 48

This is truly a sad ending to a long and drawn out public downward spiral.  One time pop sensation Whitney Houston has been found dead at the Beverly Hilton Hotel by her bodyguard this afternoon, state Beverly Hills Police.

Last photo of the troubled singer, taken this past Thursday as she exited Tru night club in Hollywood, depict her looking like a ripe mess albeit alive.

Although the world knew that the one time voice which belted out of the Clive Davis creation was gone and nothing but a memory, her expected return to the big screen in “Sparkle,” opposite Jordan Sparks and Mike Epps, was highly anticipated.

Ironically the upcoming film deals with fame and drugs.

The loss of Whitney Houston comes on the tail end of her fans having already mourned the loss of one of the greatest and most impactful voices of our time.

Her recordings will stand tantamount to her one-time vocal prowess and her life will be a cautionary tale of the hazards of uncontrolled drug use.

RIP Whitney.

We will leave y’all to mourn in your own fashion and share these two videos, showing two very different Whitney.

Steven Tyler: Dudes in Rehab!

Steven Tyler Enters Rehab for Painkiller Medication Addicion

Rocker and Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, 61, seen here at this years’ Glamour Women of the Year awards, has checked himself into rehab for prescription painkiller medication addiction, reports People.

“As with many athletes, Steven put his performance first as he struggled with acute pain for years,” Dr. McKeon tells People.  “Managing and controlling his pain has been challenging, and despite our use of alternative therapies and the creation of custom shoes built by a team of engineers from Timberland, Steven’s pain has progressed,” he goes on to add.  Additional surgeries to his knees and feet are likely, report states.

I am only left wondering what is Tyler going to do with all those damn pills!  Good ones I bet…  I would gladly take them off his hands…

But on a serious note, we wish Tyler all the best for a speedy and healthy recovery from his impending surgeries and kicking the habit – again.
