Looking at the life of Whitney Houston, it appeared that she had everything going for her. She became a successful icon who changed the music industry for female vocalist. She caused female vocalist competition to be magnified that would have not otherwise been. All went well (at lease that we as an audience and fans) until she began dating and then married Bobby Brown, former lead vocalist for New Edition. Once their connection happens, you then began to see a change in Whitney’s life. You began to hear about the drugs, cocaine, and the fighting. I don’t know if Whitney was 100% innocent of any drugs, drinking, and cocaine before uniting with Bobby Brown. I don’t know and will not make an assumption.
