Pop diva Whitney Houston dead

Pop diva Whitney Houston passed away due to unknown causes at her Beverly Hilton hotel room earlier today. She was 48.

Though foul play has been ruled out, an investigation is on.

Houston was last seen at a Grammy party on Thursday, and apparently did not look well then. However, she performed briefly, which would become her last performance.

Houston won six Grammy awards, two Emmy awards, 30 Billboard music awards and 22 American music awards in her career, and has sold about 200 million albums worldwide. Sadly, her drug addiction cut short her successful career.
