I'm listening to my favorite song of hers, "I Will Always Love You" right now as a tribute. It still gives me goosebumps. Incredible voice, beautiful woman, tragic life. I am personally saddened by her loss, and am heartbroken for her friends and family.
Likely suicide or drugs.
She was in the news recently, for being flat broke.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
Changing direction... I always liked her voice, though her style of music wasn't really my taste. She was a wonderful talent, though.
As much as I could recognize the talent in "I Will Always Love You", I will always despise that song. It just grated on me from the first time I heard her version.
Very sad, may she RIP. Can't say I was a fan, but she was very talented. Cocaine is a horrible drug, not saying that she overdosed, but your body is going to deteriorate when you take a drug like that for so long, she couldn't have been very healthy. Very very sad.
If there's a god, damn it she won't mind.
If there's a god, baby she won't mind.
Finally, damn. She'd been knocking on deaths door for a while with all those damned drugs, horrible way to disintegrate. Too bad Brown can't be charged with destroying her soul too.
⚧ C.T.L.W. You figure it out
My Endo doc went over my blood work. "I see your estrogen level is now at 315, do you feel like you have too much Estrogen now?"
I told her "... N... N.. No..." and started crying.
She might just as easily have died from heart disease in the wake of years of chronic crack cocaine abuse. Forty-eight is plenty old enough for such a habit to catch up with anyone. However, considering that this is the eve of the Grammy Awards, there is a distinct possibility that this was a suicide.
It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.
I don't recall where I read it, but I think that, statistically, black women have the lowest rate of suicide in the US.
