I mean really...one more self-indulgent pop star who had money, fame, adoration of her fans, a life that is just a fantasy to ordinary people, and here you have idiots all over the media today talking about how hard things were for her, and how sensitive she was because she was an "artist."
There are plenty of people in this world who have it so tough that they deserve our sympathy. This woman was not one of them. She had it all and killed herself with drugs and irresponsibility. So what? There are plenty more pop divas where she came from, for anyone shallow enough to think such people mean anything.
I'm sorry if this makes people mad, but we've got tens of thousands of poor women being left to become victims of breast cancer, so some right wing assholes can stir up their "base" with one more bogus outrage; we have 8,000 newly revealed cases of child molestation in one Catholic diocese in this country, and we are supposed to waste our time feeling sorry for Whitney Houston? No thanks.
P.S: I have now seen some nauseatingly racist things about Whitney Houston at the right wing blogs, so I just want to say that I saw the Grateful Dead around sixty times, and I felt the same way when Jerry Garcia died. This isn't about racism, it's about the failure to appreciate it when you have been dealt a wonderful hand in life.
