I am a little shaken by this and I never knew the woman. I mean this has got me more shocked than Jackson's passing.

Predictable, but still sad of course.

I don't know why her death was predictable....Who predicted it?

I was so rooting for her because she seemed to be getting her life together and I'm going to remember her for her great career and NOT her troubles...May she rest in peace Crying or Very sad

The last 15+ years have been sad IMO. Certainly a heavy heart with the loss but sadly this has felt inevitable for quite some time now.

Talent and opportunity lost in the battle she faced with demons inside herself.

Very sad - one of THE primary musical memories for me in the late 80's/early 90's.

I choose to believe her spirit is now returned back to the pure energy, electricity and joy she once brought in her music.

Thoughts and prayers to her family/friends and especially her daughter.

RIP

I don't know of anyone who predicted it as such, but history shows that junkies don't tend to have long life expectancies.

As recently as last year she was making a come back and was looking better than she had in many years. So I would think most were thinking she was finally getting it together. So yes, it is sort of shocking for it to happen now. To be dismissive as oh junkies don't live long, isn't really cool.

Sadly it seemed she was getting her life together a lot of times only to be pulled back down by whatever she was battling...and after each attempt it just seemed less and less of her survived.

I always want to see folks get there life back but with some folks you get the feeling they will eventually prevail and with others you get the feeling they won't - for me she fell in the later category.

This may turn out to be a death of natural causes but my guess is it comes about as a result of the toll her life took on her body.

And I agree -- she is free now and we are free to remember the talent and the joy in her music.

Indeed. TigerVol has a great way with words anyway.

Never was such a beautiful star on the stage of the Oscar telecast as the night she sang with Mariah.

This is so very hard to believe -- 48. What a great loss.

I will never forget seeing/hearing Whitney sing the National Anthem at the very first WNBA All-Star Game, 1999, at MSG.... It was worth the trip to NY for that alone. Simply magnificent.

My heart goes out to her family.

RIP.

RIP Whitney! Prayers to her family and friends.

Whitney did many beautiful songs but my favorite was "I Will Always Love You" gives me chills just thinking about the way she hit those high notes.

May that song be the anthem for her family and friends as I am sure they will always love her.
