Today it was reported that New Jersey born superstar Whitney Houston had cocaine in her system at the time of her death.
Many people blame Bobby Brown for Whitney’s troubles. If you had to blame someone, it might actually be Clive Davis. Even though he’s the one who “discovered” her, he was also the one who insisted that she homogenize her church-bred soulful sound into something more palatable. She was never allowed to just be herself.
I don’t think it was drowning or drugs that killed Whitney, but deep despair. No matter how this story ended, we will always love you, Whitney. May God give you rest now at last.
