R.I.P. Whitney Houston
February 11, 2012 in Sad
I think the shock over her very untimely death is more to do with how early it came. I also think that as much as we knew of her troubled, recent past and her troubled, ongoing future, there was a part of a lot of people who quietly wished that she’d somehow get it together one more time and make a triumphant comeback of sorts. Because she actually had talent. No matter how much people could dismiss her for forsaking her soul roots, or for being a pop princess and selling out in sugar-caked movies, one thing is undeniable – she could sing. Very sad, indeed.
