Lindsey Lohan, you listening to this?
Sad she was very talented unlike alot of Pop “singers” these days....Remember seeing her videos in the 80’s...
Rest in peace, after a talented but troubled life. This is so sad.
I liked her voice. May God be merciful and bring her home.

She was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel..she was supposed to appear tonight at a party for Clive Davis at the Beverly Hills Hotel..probably OD..heck take out probably, 100 percent chance of it being an OD
A tragedy. She was beautiful back in the 80s. I pray she came to know Christ before she died.
Beautiful voice, and she used to be a classy lady. Sad what she became...RIP.
That’s probably standard procedure when the death isn’t natural. Doesn’t mean that it’s actually criminal in nature.
How sad, she had beauty and talent. It is amazing how many people who have been given such gifts end up on drugs and dead at an early age.

I guess it is sad, but an hour of FNC in breaking news?
Oh dear! There goes the news cycle...just when a whole lot of serious effluent around the world is about the hit the air conditioning!
I just checked VH1 and MTV and they have absolutely nothing about it.
Horrible news. Prayers to her family. Not necessarily a total surprise but horrible just the same.
But the much scorned Fox News did and does and is having a show about her right now!
Yeah but the fatal crash was on Wilshire/LaPeer(Where the Audi dealership is, know that place well I am about 8 blocks away) from what Im hearing Whitney Houston was found dead in her room at the Beverly Hilton hotel so there is no connection between the two incidents
What a shame. RIP, Whitney.
Very true. Silly me, I thought those networks would report news of this nature.
Sad. A powerful counterpoint to the celebration of excess and sin that will be on display at the Grammys.
A tragic loss of a lovely talent.
I fell in love with her voice!
No one, and mean NO ONE, will ever sing the National Anthem as good as she did at the Super Bowl in ‘91! Just absolutely beautiful version!
She coulda stumbled home
When I first saw her back in the ‘80s I thought she was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. Way too young and way too bad
FNC jumped on this immediately -
I guess there is no dignity even in death. Repulsive that you would post this photo.
We don’t know yet if it was drug related but she ruined herself over drugs.
I think this is such a shame on so many levels after years of loving her voice. And that National Anthem at the start of the Gulf War at the Super Bowl (1991?)ranks the best ever sang by anyone.
She had it all and threw it all away. Listening to her trying to sing after her comeback last year was just painful. She threw it all away for drugs.
Drug use, as some say, is a victimless crime .... probably need to inform the victims ... both the users and everyone around them!
Actually, CNN was on it for a least a half hour before FNC even mentioned it.

Too bad, she just couldn’t shake her problems. RIP.
drugs, alcohol and thug boyfriends
I honor the passing of a great singer and grieve the loss of a troubled soul.
Sad, but sorry to say it was only a matter of time. She had a great voice.
Whitney Houston’s premature death is a tragedy, but no one should be surprised. The only thing that surprises me is that she managed to live this long. It’s a shame, given her great talent. What did she see in Bobby Brown in the first place?
Too bad. One of the best pop voices of all time. Just an incredibly powerful and pure voice. Don’t know much about her, but I always suspected she was a decent person, in spite of her drug issues.
Lindsey Lohan, on the other hand, is a punk.
Heard this on the radio while driving home.
What a tragic ending to a tragically-led life once Bobby Brown entered it.
Prayers to her family. I’m sure they’re beyond heartbroken....all these years hoping and praying that she’d turn around.
I’ll never forget the first time I heard her voice when I was a child. There has never been anyone close to making me feel the way she did when she sang. RIP Whitney.
