One of music's most respected living legends has weighed in on the sudden death of pop icon Whitney Houston at age 48.

TMZ reports that Celine Dion isn't waiting for a coroner's report to confirm the obvious. Dion called into Good Morning America this morning and told Robin Roberts, "Whitney has been an amazing inspiration for me ... It's just really unfortunate that drugs, bad people or bad influence took over. It took over her dreams. It took over her love and motherhood."

She went on to say, "When you think about Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse, to get into drugs like that, for whatever reason. Is it because of the stress and bad influence? What happens when you have everything?"

It's interesting that she should ask "What happens when you have everything?" I tell people all the time that you get what you ask for but you may not be ready for it.

Everyone wants to be rich (and some want to be famous) but they never think about the heavy burden that comes with the riches and the fame.

Life is about the struggle. As infants being born, we struggle to get here, and life continues to be a struggle. The struggle doesn't get any easier with money. It's a sobering reality when you achieve your dreams and there is nothing left to achieve. You have every materialistic thing you could ever want, but you have nothing else to look forward to.

There's a line in one of my favorite movies that goes, "When Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer."

The true meaning of life is in the struggle. The happiest people I know live from paycheck to paycheck. Once you reach the top, there is nowhere left to go but down. Be careful what you ask for, kids.

    WOW! To be quite honest, I really feel sad for the family that is left behind. It has to be quite devastating to read things being said about your mother, daughter, sister, etc. It's definitely gonna be hard on the family. I just :pray: them peace and understanding. I just remember the 3 Ring Circus when Anna Nicole Smith passed....I CAN IMAGINE WHAT'S IT'S GOING TO BE WITH WHITNEY! God bless!

    She is referring to the media trying to play it nice and politically correct. I am sure the general public is not jaded. But those SOB's who were cheesing on the red carpet as her body lay in rigor mortis are the ones in complete and utter denial about their own mortality and lifestyle.

    My joy in life is helping others. If I obtain anything, I also give. Its all about where you channel your interests. If you feel you achieved it all then go help somebody else or create soemthing else. Whitney (for example only)or anybody blessed with money can easily form an organization to help women or whatever. Maybe in creating a avenue for others to overcome by being honest about your state and truly want to be helped then she would have also helped herself because it would have made her stronger.

    Just one question: Are you sadder when a person dies based on how they died or how much you cared for or respected them? I posed this question on my FB. If it was a parent and they had an addiction, how would you feel if you got phone calls from people sending their condolences with a but if...'she wasn't on drugs' or 'she could just have stopped drinking'. My uncle just passed and he was an alcoholic but that wasn't a factor at his funeral or the planning of his funeral. We all knew what he died from but we celebrated his life not the demons that he faced in his life. We all have demons and when it is your time I pray that no one brings that up when remembering you. This is not the time to condemn but to appreciate the gift that she shared with so many even if you were not a fan.
    She was a mother,sister and human first. We all fall short sometimes and when our time comes no one should point out your shortcomings.

    I think people forget that celebrities are human. I was watching old footage of her and Bobbi Kristina and her love for her daughter was evident. Really enjoyed listening to Rickey Smiley because they were celebrating her life and leaving all the crap out. I remembered when one of my old coworkers passed away suddenly at the age of 38 and people were at her funeral speculating on why she passed. All I could think was, "Does it matter? She is gone and she left two heartbroken children behind. Some people just don't get it.

    This is true... I used to have money when I was in my early twenties... a fair amount of money that I wished for, worked hard for BUT so wasn't ready for. I became selfish, distant, condescending, and lost. I became wrapped up in material things, the tangibles... one bad decision led to another and cause and effect were no longer on my side in a positive way. Nevertheless, I LOST it all down to my bare soul and it took a toll emotionally, finanicially, spriritually... 7 years later I got it all back one mustard seed at a time. I pray daily for humility. I NEVER want to be anything more than who I am designed to be... ever.

    I love the times when I borrow from Peter to pay Paul. I love the times when I have to call and make payment arrangements. I love the times when I can't go buy the pair of shoes I don't really need. I love the fact that I pay my mortgage on time because I know what happens if I pay late. I love knowing that my help doesn't come from me. You look at things different when you fall down and get back up... some people just can't shake their demons... I battle mine every single day. I just know what is at the rock bottom and I don't plan to see it.. again.

    @Creamy

    You know you my e-homie, but I do have a question for you...it seems like a lot of your posts are leaning toward the negative side lately...like your fb post about Whitney that you posted earlier today and now this...like I get that there are a million pretty babies in the world, but what is wrong with acknowledging that Bey's baby is beautiful? If it was anyone else's baby I would have given the same reaction, that she's a beautiful baby... I just don't see what's so wrong with discussing and acknowledging it... :shrugs:

    The rest of Celine's quote as reported by CNN...

    "There's something that happens that I don't understand," she said, "and that's why I'm so scared. I'm scared of show business. I'm scared of drugs. I'm scared of hanging out. And that's why I don't do parties, and that's why I don't hang out. That's why I'm not part of show business, because we have to be afraid."

  • Strawberrys and cream

    I agree about the money thing, to a certain degree, I was happy when I didnt have to figure my bills out and how much I am gonna put on it, in my real money days , I never even asked how much somethng cost, i just pointed and got it from houses to cars etc, when the Chrysler 300 first came out I had a pre orderd one, even tho I had a 85,000 benz in my drive way, along with a 60,000 Caddy Esc and a porsche, shoes, clothes, I bout a pair of regular sandals for 450.00 just to wear one night, SMH. it was like money grew in my back yard, but when I went to sleep at night I was miserable, there was nothing for me to look forward to, I flew first class everything, i just decided to go shoppung in LA, and booked a flight to shop and come back in 2 days, if the hotel was not a 5 star i was not staying in it :no: But it did nothing for my soul NOTHING, I was a miserable woman with a man that had plenty of hoes.

    Earlier, on the red carpet, gospel singer Kim Burrell told CNN she'd exchanged voice mails with her good friend Houston shortly before her death, describing her as being "in great spirits, as always." She said she always thought of Houston as a "fighter" and a "survivor," which made the idea of her passing all the more difficult to comprehend.

    "She's my sister and she'll always be my sister," said an emotional Burrell. "I love her dearly."

    Burrell told CNN Monday she is comforted by the knowledge that Houston had a solid religious foundation. She said she and Houston spoke weekly for 13 years, sometimes praying over the phone.

    "Whitney knew to go to God. Whitney knew how to pray," a tearful Burrell said Monday. "... I'm very confident that whatever her last moments were, she knew that God could be there for her. ... She's with him today."

    Burrell said she'd flown to California to join Houston in attending a pre-Grammy party Saturday night hosted by the songstress' longtime mentor, Clive Davis. Houston died a few hours before the party took place.

    On Houston's last voice mail, left as Burrell was on the plane, she said gospel music was playing in the background.

    "It's just very hard today to see all of this," she said. "It's very surreal, but I'm trying very hard to be strong for her."

    I heard this interview this morning and Celine was basically saying that her surroundings broke her down and she turned to drugs. She went on to say that she did everything based on Whitney. How she sung, dressed, carried herself etc. So I dont think she was throwing shade just being real.

    I think the irony is in the struggle, that you become victorious throughout the temporary anguish and can give honor to the Most High accordingly...I think that people are saying that they'd rather be broke and rich in the soul than to be rich and empty inside...no saying that one has to accompany another, but it is very easy to lose yourself when you have nothing to "worry" about financially in this imperfect and evil world...

    you start praising material things god will send you back to earth, I went through a similiar situation and it really helps when you have a support system too, like daisy said:

    “It is only by Gods grace that I am still here today. I have made some dumb/stupid decisions (even as an adult when I knew better) BUT GOD!! As my mama wld say to all you perfect ppl “keep on living”….

    _________________________________________________________

    :clap: growing up we were p-o-o-r. I learned about struggle at an early age but it prepared me and taught me to survive. I'm making a fairly decent living now, but best believe I'm humble. I'm still cheap. I buy good quality items but ALWAYS on sale, if it isn't there when I come back with a sale sign on it, heck I don't need it. Just cause I have it doesn't mean I need it. I remember once my water heater went out in my apartment too late for them to come fix it because they needed to order a new one. The management at my complex was all apologetic, I went right in that kitchen and boiled me up some water enough to fill up my tub, shooot I've done this before, :rofl: Ive come a long way, thank God for it :)

    That is what pisses me off. I have never known anyone from Canada that talks like that anyway. I've been to Quebec and they spoke english just like you and I. She said that she never went out, it's because she had to get her husband 'father time' to bed.

But my child says she thinks that she planned it and she wants no part of her pregnancy but wishes that she has a healthy baby. She is not judging her for being pregnant but mad at her cause she knows she did it on purpose.
    On another note, my baby said that she maybe the last virgin in school cause the school daycare is packed!

    :thinking::coffee:
    I think Whitney was just overwhelmingly sad. Here's what I mean ... In 2002, my only niece committed suicide over a POS that makes Bobby Brown look like Smokey the Bear. After all the stupid drama their relationship caused in the family (her father and I spent a night in jail after we put some hurt on his ass for hitting her; she took the rap for his shoplifting assed mother;she stole jewelry from her grandparents to get him out of jail; she gave him the car her grandparents had bought for her, etc.), he left her anyway. When she realized that she had given up everything and alienated practically everyone who loved her in favor of a man who truly did not ... she didn't want to live anymore. Now I don't think Whitney intentionally killed herself, I think she just wanted to numb the pain. Remember her friend (perhaps lover) Robin Crawford? Sent her packing cuz Bobby didn't like her. Her father died angry at her over some Bobby shiggety. All those years of bank rolling his whole damn family -- and he stood by and allowed them to take pictures of her drug fueled mess and sell them to the tabloids. She may have been into some drugs before Bobby, but their co-dependency seemed to be all consuming.Remember the miscarriages before and after Bobbi Kristina(she so desperately wanted a child/children by this man)? Skip to the present --- Bobby appears to have completely moved on past her; he seems to be pretty much OK. New woman, new baby, new contract, new life. Where was poor Whitney -- no contract, no career, no voice, no real man; not able to tap into the true sources of love that had always sustained her (JESUS, Mama, child, family, church)due to the Satanic smoke screen of drugs, enablers, leeches, fear, shame, ego, what have you. Y'all, I think Whitney was just sooo, sooo, sooo SAD.

    Sex should not be lied about or made to feel like "it ain't all that" we have daily sex talks right here on this blog. Kids ain't stupid, and you have NO control over another human being actions (up until a certain age and even then children act how they want too until they are corrected)
    The truth sex feels good, however some people are not mentally able to handle what comes along with the sex act. Even adults can not mentally handle "sex" because you are giving this person apart of your energy whether it is a one night stand, 7 year, 30 year....

    Children need the TOOLS to make right decision,not to be decieved they are people too indeed.

    My mom said don't come home pregnant. I got pregnant at 20 in college, she said either go to the courthouse or the doctor (not talking about the OB either). I did neither, we did end up getting married. Later on, she apologized for how it was handled.

    I will teach my kids other than don't come home pregnant. We will have open, honest discussions, that don't mean I am gone buy her a hotel room, but I will get birth control and condoms if needed. I feel if your child comes to you, it is too late and you need to leave the doors open and not be judgmental. If your eyes bulge everytime your child says something, they will not talk to you.
