Whitney Houston Dead at Age 48

February 11, 2012

Whitney Houston, who was probably regarded as one of the greatest pop singers of all time until drug use and erratic behavior led to a decline in her career, has died at the age of 48.

Anyone my age grew up with Whitney Houston. I may not have been her biggest fan, but her music was a part of my adolescence. School dances…etc. I mean “The Bodyguard” and her remake of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You”. What a talent who will be surely be missed!

Not sure what else there is to say…I’ll leave you with probably the greatest National Anthem of all time at the Super Bowl:

From CBS News:

Houston’s publicist, Kristen Foster, said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown.

News of Houston’s death came on the eve of music’s biggest night — the Grammy Awards. It’s a showcase where she once reigned, and her death was sure to case a heavy pall on Sunday’s ceremony. Houston’s longtime mentor Clive Davis was to hold his annual concert and dinner Saturday; it was unclear if it was going to go forward.

Paris Hilton Facing Felony After Arrest

August 30, 2010

Prosecutors have filed a felony charge against Paris Hilton stemming from her arrest over the weekend on suspicion of possession of cocaine.

Last month, Hilton was detained in South Africa for allegedly smoking marijuana at the World Cup.

Bad Paris…bad!

From CNN:

Hilton was charged with possession of a controlled substance. She is set to be arraigned October 27 in Clark County District Court, according to courthouse spokeswoman Jillian Prieto.

The hotel heiress, 29, was arrested late Friday. Police pulled alongside a Cadillac Escalade in which Hilton was a passenger about 11:30 p.m. and smelled “a strong odor of marijuana coming from the vehicle,” according to the arrest report.

When the officer looked over, “the female passenger started to put the window of the vehicle up,” the report said. Police told the driver of the Cadillac to pull over, which he did, in front of the Wynn Hotel.
