Diamanda Galįs wrote a piece about Whitney Houston. The junkie thing subject is touched a bit. Pelle gets his ass kicked and handed back to him.

I just hope the hope wont stay as long as when Michael Jackson died. That sucked (for people who absolutely don't give a shit).

How can you be so insensitive? Show some respect for the dead.

Here's the thing:

In the paper today there was a heartfelt editorial. "Whitney provided the soundtrack to my life."

And I'm like, "That's fucking sad. Vacuous pop from a mediocre talent who had absolutely nothing original to say to the world? That's your soundtrack?"


Unfortunate she died, however she died? Yeah, sure. I guess. But before I weep for her, I'll weep for the death of--let's face it--other people more talented and actually important than that dipshit could ever dream of being.


Lucian Freud died back in July 2011. Remember how everyone was talking about it, how cable news went on and on with endless tributes, how the internet roared with mourning?

Of course not. So I'm tempted to agree that I don't really care about WH's death one way or the other. Maybe that's unfair. Maybe the attention given to her life and death over the life and death of real artists is the fault of our "culture." Whatever. Fuck her, anyway.

Death isn't a contest. My sister buried her husband this week, and it
doesn't make me think of how pathetic it is that the world doesn't stop
and bemoan his passing. It makes me think of finality and sorrow.

Death represents the unknown to me, and I have always respected the
unknown. This is where someone chimes in with, "Uh, we already know
what happens when you die--NOTHING." You'll have to pardon me, I am
an old woman. How old? Old enough to know that I know very little
indeed.

I promise, you fucking saps, death isn't that bad.

Fucking linear apes.

Lets talk more about drugs. Do you reckon she had the good ones or got more kicks by feeling cheap?

I say good...then cheap.

Wow, do you even know who Whitney Houston is?

You should join up with gmku, he is working on selling 100,000,001 records, when you get 100,000,002 you can criticize Whitney Houston's "talent" or lack there of..

no, what I said is somebody can't possibly sell 100,000,000 records without having talent, and anyone who thinks whitney houston had no talent is just hatin plain and simple..

her talent speaks for itself

further, she sold so many records because she meant a lot to so many people, and if she wasn't our particular SYG kind of music, we shouldn't just scoff at what we don't understand, she is hardly a one-hit-wonder imitation pop star from The Voice II. People should have more respect than simply to troll around on someone's grave and legacy

She was a good singer. She made some great records. I liked very few of them. So I stay out of this thread, because it would be insincere of me to say anything.

Predictably, someone's trying to be really fucking cool and slagging off someone who's dead for reasons that had almost nothing to do with her. Maybe someone else should've sold that many records. But they didn't. Maybe someone else should be that famous. But they weren't.

All I'm saying is that the quality of asinine and impotent sniping on this forum really needs to up its game. Slagging off Whitney Houston... what next, George Bush isn't that great threads? Pricks.

RIP Whitters.
