Whitney Houston is dead, according to ABC News. The queen of pop music had a stellar career that was stained by allegations of drug abuse and strange behavior. That career has now come to an end.
Publicist Kristen Foster has confirmed Houston’s death and the cause is still unknown. Houston was once at the top of the music industry in the late 1980s and 1990s. She was one of the top-selling artists in the world and got her start in the black church. She also starred in films such as “Waiting to Exhale” and “The Bodyguard.”
After she began to get involved in drugs, Houston’s sales started to decline and she could not longer hold the tunes she held as a young woman. She eventually admitted that drug use is part of what had taken her off track.
“The biggest devil is me. I’m either my best friend or my worst enemy,” Houston said to ABC News 10 years ago.
“The time that I first saw her singing in her mother’s act in a club … it was such a stunning impact,” recording executive Clive Davis told “Good Morning America.”
