Whitney is a legend. Her sad story is marred by drug use and "Being Bobby Brown. " (remember when they openly discussed her "cure" for constipation? vile.), but let us remember Whitney for her unparalleled talent. She made more music and won more accolades (according to the Guinness Book of World Records, she holds more trophies than any other pop star) than any of the modern day wannabes. (See: Lana Del Ray's miserable fail at recreating the magic of Whitney's 1994 Grammy Performance, below)
You will be missed, Miss Houston. Rest in peace.
A side note to Lindsay Lohan: Take Whitney's famous words to heart, "Crack is whack." Or else, Amy Winehouse and Whitney will be welcoming you soon.
