Olympia I liked the McCartney song. He has always written his wives love songs and she is stunning, rich, younger-what a life they have. Lifetime has 'The Body Guard" on and couldn't resist. I think Costner was a little in love with the young Whitney. It is amazing how she starred in a film with no acting experience and really did so well. I saw a bit of the funeral but could not watch. It was way more subdued and smaller and less showbizzy than that extravaganza the Jackson family promoted. I think it was exactly what she would have wished, with the exception of No Aretha, for health reasons, I guess. Jessie jackson looked very old and very sad. As the defacto minister to the black comminity, he has seen so much of this in the music/acting industry.
Cissy looks terrible, and from what I read, Whitney seemed reckless to the point of maybe planning this. She was broke, and Clive Davis was paying her bills, as Whitney supported many, including her ex Bobby. She was very generous they say. It is so long ago that she was the blockbuster star, but she threw it away early in life. I see the waste, and the Voice that could have matured and done duets, more movies like the "Preacher's Wife." I love Gospel so I was touched by the choir. It was very genuine, and in Church-no celebrity show-offs. I think she had many people love her but she was her own boss. She detroyed her voice, but it was apparently devastating to her when it failed her. I think maybe it was not a coicidence it all happened Grammy week. To see all the young talent...she thought she could bring her voice back and was trying, but she was in party town. I really think Hollywood has daily horrible tragedies and I am not a fan of most of the actors/actresses and the whole celebrity obsession in America.
I know those doctors who gave her all those sedatives will pay some day. I don't get a buzz from anything and am not an addictive personality, but I can certainly see she did not always "get" that she was not indestructable. Bobby Brown has cleaned up his act, ironically, and got out alive. I am concerned for the daughter. The grandma is old and broken and her mother was her whole life. Well, I think the stories will stop which is good. I pray God helps all who ask. The Houstons have amazing faith in Christ, and they are at peace. I wish I was so sure.
