    Am i a heartless prick? perhaps I am but what is going through my head is "this bitch hasn't done anything but smoke rock since 1989" and frankly my shock and amazement has more to do with the fact that she survived this long. I keep hearing about how she was an icon and all that.....her biggest song she didn't even write....she continuously made herself prey to an abusive drug addict (Brown).......sorry.....she had a great voice but I can think of 100 people off the top of my head whose death would have more impact.

    A drug addict overdosed (presumably).......same thing that happens in alleys every night.

    While you are very true in your evaluation, that still doesn't mean you are not a heartless prick.

    No man is an island, and every clod that falls off the continent diminishes it by that small amount.

    So while she earned her fate. As the poem goes, don't send for whom the bell tolls, it tolls for thee

    Just sad, perhaps one of the greatest voices ever, and due to her association with the wrong people and her addiction, we lost a true artist. I wonder if her drug dealer mourns her loss or mourns the loss of a customer.

    Oh bullshit. great voices are a dime a dozen. There are millions of people with FAR better voices than she had that did nothing more than sing in their high school choir, their church choir, or simple karaoke.

    And a true artist my ass.....it's not like she wrote any music of note. Her hits were written by others. All she did was perform them

    She did this to herself -- she was a major loser. Another overindulged, self absorbed celebrity. Children dying of cancer is tragic. This is entertainment -- at best.

    RIP in Whitney, and let's pray for those who attack you do not end up making bad choices as well and receiving karmic justice.
