Whitney Houston Dead at 48

by at . Comments

Whitney Houston, one of the most successful female artists of all-time, died at the Beverly Hills Hilton Hotel today. She was 48.

The singer's rep confirmed the news this evening to The Associate Press, with insiders saying a member of Houston's entourage discovered her body late in the afternoon; a hotel employee called 911; and paramedics arrived to find Whitney unresponsive.

She was pronounced dead at 3:55 local time.

Beverly Hill Police Lt. Mark Rosen said there was "no obvious signs of criminal intent," though no cause of death has been determined and detectives have already started a full investigation.

R.I.P. Whitney Houston

Houston leaves behind a daughter, Bobbi Kristina.

The two-time Emmy and six-time Grammy Award winner sold over 200 million albums worldwide. She had battled alcohol and drug addiction - last seeking treatment in early 2011 - for many years prior to her death and was spotted out twice in Los Angeles over the last week, first with occasional boyfriend Ray J and then with a pal on Thursday night.

Whitney was staying at the hotel in anticipation of Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party, which was scheduled to take place there that night.

Our thoughts go out to her loved ones and, in her honor, we present the greatest national anthem performance in professional sports history:

@Reed, you are correct, this problem with death due to drug use will happen again, unless the entire population (including the BLACK community) start saying no to drugs. blacks need to call the police on their fellow black drug dealers. whitney was too good a talent to die this way. love goes out to her beautiful daughter, who now only has drug user bobby brown to turn to. disgusting what bobby brown did to whitney.

I blame the black community for Whitney's decline. She was a pop superstar at the start of her career, but blacks kept telling her she was "selling out", and "wasn't black enough". So she married the blackest ass out there, Bobby Brown, started doing drugs (so prevalent in black culture), singing unpopular R&B crap, and so started the start of her decline. If the black community would have shut up and let her shine, she would still be here. The world has lost an incredible talent.
