When a person passes away at such a young age you have the urge to want to find and place blame!
It is no secret that Whitney like to “party”. The news media likes to use the word “struggle” with drugs and addiction, but to me it looks like she didn’t struggle with it at all but rather embraced it! I’ve never been the type of person who would stick my nose into other people’s business. I think people should be allowed to do whatever they want as long as it doesn’t effect other people! To each his/her own!
But Whitney’s death does effect others! Whitney’s choice to “party” does effect others! Whitney not being on this earth does effect others!
Blame has to be put somewhere. Does it go to Bobby Brown who married Whitney and wasn’t exactly the best influence on her? Does the blame go to Clive Davis and everyone in the music industry who profited and enabled her poorly chosen lifestyle? Does the blame go to her current friends and entourage whoever they may be? Someone has to be blamed! We can’t just accept that she is gone and it’s just gods will! Who to blame?
Thus, the title of this blog entry. “F*ck you Whitney Houston”. The only person that can be blamed is Whitney herself. Whether she passed away from some sort of overdose, or natural causes, it is clear that she is gone from us, taken away from us, because of years and years of abuse of herself.
What would Whitney say if she were here to read this blog entry? She’d say, why do you care? Who are you to give a rats ass about my life. It’s my life, not yours. Did I ask you to care about me. Did I invite you into my life. Mind your own business Mr. EarthZebra man whom I’ve never met and couldn’t give a sh*t about.
And she’d have a point. Who are any of us to “expect” of entertainers that they live a certain way. Live up to our expectations. To be always available for the next song, next movie, or next magazine cover.
Well, the answer is simple Miss Houston. When you picked up the microphone, stepped in front of the camera, or tied on your cleats asking all of “us” to buy your album, go to your movie, or go watch your performance, you then accept the “responsibility” to answer to all of us!
While I do blame you Whitney Houston for not being with us anymore, it will only last for a moment. Because the blame is only frustration that you will not be here anymore.
We love you Whitney Houston! We always have and always will!
RIP Whitney and thank you for the time you did bless us with.
