Link.

This ain't no Twitter death hoax people, this is real. First celebrity of actual note to die in 2012. The cause of death hasn't been released yet but I'm willing to bet drugs were somehow involved. Fuck addiction, RIP.

Let the Bodyguard references begin.

Didn't know who she was until this news. May she rest in peace.

#3 Edited by Sooty (8082 posts) -
Whoa.
 
Wasn't she in some song with Coolio once? I really can't remember now, but R.I.P.
 
Totally read this as Whoopi Goldberg and had flashbacks of Ghost.

Not exactly shocked

#5 Edited by Village_Guy (2407 posts) -

I dunno why I'm kinda surprised, she has been a wreck for some time now after all. Well, not much to do or say about that...

Rest In Peace.

Hey, people.

Stop doing hard drugs

#7 Posted by TheHT (10281 posts) -

Geez, shame she couldn't pull herself around. She was a pretty big deal, music-wise.

#8 Posted by JasonR86 (9377 posts) -

That's too bad. I hope people don't go on rants about drugs or Bobby Brown or anything else. I hope they just remember the songs she made famous.

You're a bad person.

Drugs are bad.

#12 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

I'm gonna guess it's suicide considering she was bankrupt...maybe.

#13 Posted by Claude (16251 posts) -

RIP Whitney. Such a talent.

#14 Posted by TheNightWatch (31 posts) -

The real question is... does anyone have her on their deathpool?

#15 Posted by Bribo (583 posts) -

Sad.

Stay off the pipe, kids.

#16 Posted by Masha2932 (1237 posts) -

Rest in peace.

#17 Posted by Solh0und (1680 posts) -

First Don Cornelius and now Whitney.

Rest in Peace to both of them =[

#18 Posted by Hailinel (22711 posts) -

For some reason, I thought she was a lot older.

#19 Posted by MariachiMacabre (6937 posts) -

Another talent lost to addiction. Unfortunate.

You're right. Who could forget that one guy who played Vader in Empire but not really because he was only in two scenes and did stunts occassionally. That guy. And Aaron Carter's sister.

#21 Posted by msavo (7522 posts) -

Has it been confirmed what caused her death?

#22 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8060 posts) -

Damn, RIP.

#23 Posted by Sparklykiss (1909 posts) -

I thought Whitney was a few years beyond 48. The fact that she's younger than both of my parents kind of freaks me out. I also believe that she just had an offer and made an announcement to be on the X-Factor, too. It's a shame that both of those events happened so close together.

Probably has something to do with drugs.

@Everyones_A_Critic: Etta James just died too y'know. Just as a (sad) example.

Anyway, may she rest in peace. 48 is too young, no matter the causes.

I was about to say "Harry Morgan", but I can't remember if that was this or the end of last year?

I guess so. I guess we should see if anyone is gonna fuck up Whitney's spotlight by being deceased this year too. This is her time to shine GOD DAMMIT.

2012 is starting to suck. R.I.P., Whitney.

Rest in Piece Whitney

#35 Posted by bartok (2371 posts) -

Whitney was a huge fucking deal in the late 80's and early 90's.  

#36 Edited by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -
@SethPhotopoulos: Oh wow that Lebanese Politician also died?!  
 Guess "First celebrity of actual note" wasn't true at all!
#37 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8060 posts) -

@SethPhotopoulos: You could have just linked to the wikipedia page instead of copying and pasting all that shit.

#38 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (4852 posts) -

@Unknown_Pleasures: I thought about it.

#39 Posted by ShadowConqueror (2993 posts) -

Cocaine's a hell of a drug.

#40 Posted by JasonR86 (9377 posts) -

@SethPhotopoulos:

Most of those people don't count.

#41 Posted by N7 (3570 posts) -

Bobby Brown on the run again.

#42 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Houston we have a problem, Houston! Houston come in!

#43 Posted by Turambar (6484 posts) -
@SethPhotopoulos: Are you really going to argue the subjective concept of "notable"?  I know what you're trying to get at but come on now.  If you're going to do something as inane as c/ping the wiki page, you might as well go all the way and tally up the names of every human that's died so far this year.

Also, this. The most shocking part of this story for me was her age.

#45 Posted by sissylion (677 posts) -

@Everyones_A_Critic: I'm not going to argue with you about why you're wrong about who's notable, but if you honestly don't think the deaths of Etta James or Don Cornelius are important, you're letting your age show pretty harshly.

I hate to be a dick, but this. The past four or five years of her live were ravaged by drug use. I'm shocked it didn't come sooner.

#47 Posted by RetroVirus (1405 posts) -

RIP. Addiction is a terrible waster of talents.

#48 Posted by SteamPunkJin (1286 posts) -

Bobby did it.
