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:

Dionne Warwick & the rest of her FAM- tried to get her away from Brown at the start. They were in no way compatible. Still - she wanted the bad boy. Thought it would juice up her image. Blacks thought she was a little to WHITE for them with all the stylish Videos. She wasn't having it. She grew outspoken- liked that edginess. Had it all and shit it away. Another opportunity to learn from this--- if Drugs were indeed the case. If you have a Family -stay close. If you don't - surround yourself with people that care about you. Sad this happened. One thing is for sure. I will happen again today- Somewhere!
