For all the teen-girls-singing-into-their-hairbrushes-turned-adults-with-husbands… Whitney almost makes you miss having a broken heart. She always made you feel beautiful and righteous in your sadness and confusion — when a man disappointed you or confused you, or you needed a reason to feel confident again after a fall.
She was a pure superstar - and we just do not have those anymore. She was also one of the most beautiful creatures I’ve ever seen. Unadulterated, sweet, powerful, feminine, warm, fiesty, fierce, and her voice was like no other. Even those who imagined they were too cool for Whitney listened to her in secret.
When I first heard that she did drugs at all, years before Bobby Brown’s reality show, I just couldn’t believe it. The woman who told us about the Greatest Love of All? The woman who was every woman? The young woman who wanted to dance with someone who loved her had to end up at the heartbreak hotel. I am so sorry that she got pulled under. I’m sure she fought hard to stay sober.
Whitney, you helped so many young women love themselves in the worst of times. This is a real loss for the girl in all of us. You will be missed.
now here are some pictures of Whitney being a bad-ass..
