I hope life treats you kind
And I hope you have all you’ve dreamed of…
From The Bodyguard Soundtrack, 1992
|Whitney Houston, Seventeen Magazine, May 1983 | She was 19-years-old in this picture.|
Houston’s cause of death is still unknown. Although her passing was not as predictable as that of Amy Winehouse (whose death I wrote about here) or Michael Jackson (whose death I wrote about here), it isn’t altogether a surprise either. It’s so sad to see someone die so young and assumably tragically.
|30 years goes by very fast. Her suit reminds me of 80s aerobics and shows like the 20-Minute Workout.|
I passed a billboard tonight advertising an upcoming B.B. King concert at some nearby Indian Casino. The first thing I thought of was, “B.B. King is still alive?!” When you’re a little kid and even a teenager, everyone seems old. I remember when I was in the third grade my sister had an album of Elton John in her bedroom. He was wearing funny glasses, striped pants and platform shoes. Sometimes, I can’t believe Elton is still going strong. Some people get so many years while others seem to have far too few.
RIP Whitney Houston.
