LOS ANGELES (AP) — Whitney Houston, who reigned as pop music's queen until her majestic voice and regal image were ravaged by drug use, erratic behavior and a tumultuous marriage to singer Bobby Brown, has died. She was 48.

Publicist Kristen Foster said Saturday that the singer had died, but the cause and the location of her death were unknown.

Still kind of skeptical about it though. Finding it hard to believe (considering there had been a # of rumors on this throughout the past few yrs), although looks like more and more sources are coming out with the news that she has indeed passed away :\

One of my most favorite artists everrr...

Whitney Houston died this afternoon ... a rep for the singer told the Associated Press.

According to our sources, Houston died at the Beverly Hilton hotel. A police crime lab vehicle was seen outside the hotel just moments ago (see below).

Houston won two Emmy Awards, six Grammy Awards, 30 Billboard Music Awards, 22 American Music Awards during her record-breaking career. Her album "Whitney" was the first female album to ever debut at #1 on the Billboard Charts. She has sold 200 million albums world wide.

Houston holds an Honorary Doctorate in Humanities from Grambling State University in Louisiana.

Houston had one child, Bobbi Kristina, with husband Bobby Brown. Houston and Brown were married from 1992-2007.

That was a great rendition of the national anthem.

Sad...

I do not know anything about her...
Have got to think it was drug related though... 48 is realitively young...
Did she have a history with drugs?

Yes, she did have a history of doing drugs. The first thing that came to my mind was that it had to be drug related, based on her past but I'm not 100% positive. She is definitely one of the greatest of all time. R.I.P Whitney.
