On the passing of Whitney Houston..
And, once again, we lose a very talented person to drug and alcohol addiction. Once again, fame, talent and money mean absolutely nothing when confronted by the demons of addiction. No amount of money, no amount of fame and no amount of talent can defeat addiction. Period, end of sentence. THAT is why the entertainment industry needs to STOP glamorizing drug and alcohol use, as I said when Amy Whinehouse died. Using drugs and drinking are not “sexy”, “cool” or “defiant”. Using drugs and drinking CAN BE DEADLY, especially if you break out in a drunk when you drink or use. And, hanging around with people doing that shit can be just as deadly, if you’re not careful. And Whitney Houston is the ultimate example of this.
Whitney was not supposed to end up like this-drunk, loaded and then dead. She was supposed to be a Streisand type diva, the one who’s respected, and who’s followed by lots of young ladies who want to sing like she did. However, she ended up with a “bad boy” and thought she could “change” him. She didn’t change him-he changed HER.
After she got married to the jerk, she lost all her individuality and became an appendage of Bobby Brown. She admitted that she started using cocaine and smoking marjiuana while she was married to him. Surprised? I’m not. Some women seem to think that by doing what the “bad boy” does, it endears her to him. That’s bullshit. The only thing that does is make that woman look like a fool to the rest of the world. And that’s what happened to Whitney Houston. Instead of retaining her physical and emotional independence, she chose to cling to toxic waste, and that’s exactly what Bobby was at the time. Hell, even he admitted that not long ago. That marriage was the beginning of the end of her career, mainly because she was never her own person. She was always someone else’s. And that’s what helped kill her.
The best thing Whitney ever did was dump Bobby Brown. It’s just too bad she didn’t do it while she still had her voice. Hence, the lesson of Whitney Houston. Whitney is going to be an example to other young women like her-talented and ambitious. When they meet the Bobby Brown type loser, they will think of Whitney Houston and leave those “bad boys” alone-hopefully. If Whitney had told Bobby to jump in the lake instead of marrying him, she would still be alive, still be singing and still be respected. I believe that’s why Bobby Brown started blubbering in Mississipi at his concert tonight-he had a hand in her death, and he fucking knew it. Sure, she was an adult and was stupid enough to go along with it. And, she did have her issues with drugs BEFORE she met Bobby Brown. So, he’s not to blame for all of it. But he IS to blame for some of it. He could have said “Babe, let’s not do this shit anymore. We’re adults now.” But he didn’t.
I hope this turns out to be a lesson for every young women confronted by a jerk like Bobby Brown. Remember what happened to Whitney-and leave his loser ass the fuck alone. You don’t need a relationship worse than you need your own self. RIP, Whitney.
