I'll try and say this sensitively.
I have a big problem listening to all the hype over Whitney Houston's death and burial.
She had a good voice, she sang some good songs but why is there so much media bullshit over what was a very flawed person. The headline should have read "Drug Addict with Good Voice, Dies."
She squandered a huge talent and the millions that people paid to listen to her. I'm not biased, I paid to see her in concert many years ago at Wembley Arena.
I suspect that there are lots of drug addicts with good voices and I suspect that there are lots of non drug users with brilliant voices. Why aren't they celebrated?
I realise that this is a massive over simplification but you get my point.
