Pop singer Whitney Houston has died at age 48, multiple media outlets reported Saturday night.

According to the Associated Press, publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer was found unresponsive at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on the eve of the Grammy Awards. The singer’s website, whitneyhouston.com, crashed Saturday upon news of her death.

Houston was a pop sensation in the 1980s and 1990s — with hits such as “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “I Will Always Love You,” — but her voice and image were tarnished by drug use and a turbulent marriage to singer Bobby Brown. She also starred in hit movies like “The Bodyguard” and “Waiting to Exhale.”

Grammy producers paid tribute to Houston during Sunday night’s broadcast in a performance by Jennifer Hudson.

  • she was really something else. people don’t get more beautiful than that.

    since i’ve been thinking so much about her these days, i’m stuck with something, and wondering if anyone reading this can help. i think this goes back to the late 1980s, but maybe it was early 90s… anyway, there was a song, it was a rap song i guess, where a guy sung about how infatuated he was with Whitney, how hot she was, etc… and at some point i think he sang “W-W-W-Whitney” or “Whitney, Whitney, Whitney” – i may be remembering wrong but i think he had a caribbean accent – does anyone have a clue to what that song was, or who sang it? if so please email me dave703.927.2759 at gmail – thanks!
