I'm in total shock right now; just as much as I was when it was announced that Michael Jackson had died. *Sigh* Don Cornelius died just a week or so ago and now this.

This from the 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.

RIP Ms Houston.

She'd only recently completed shooting the Sparkle remake.

Just unbelievable. Sad.
