Whitney Houston: A triple threat talent…

I’m still in shell-shock over Whitney Houston’s death, I saw the breaking news story come up on my fb timeline. I googled it and all the articles confirmed the worst – Whitney Houston, Dead at 48.  Growing up in the 80s, there were two stars I always looked forward to seeing on the TV and they were Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston. Their songs were truly iconic during that tremulous decade. Whitney had this caliber talent to carry a tune, to the point where most of us would of gone breathless – she could still harmoniously sync to the beat.

I’ll remember Whitney as a triple threat. She could sing, dance and act. As I mention on my facebook, if you are remotely BLESSED with one of those talents it can take you far – but if you have all three – there’s NO LIMITS to your potential. However the demons Whitney faced, like so many of our talented superstars were drugs. She coined the term on the 2002 Diane Sawyer interview “crack is whack” that open a can of worms for comedians to poke fun at her. Right now there’s silence, no one is laughing – all we hear is her amazing vocals coming out of our speakers, TVs, computers and smart phones.

People are suspecting the cause of death had to do with drugs, we won’t know until the coroner report comes out. In my opinion, I think her heart just gave out on her. Dr. Drew talked about addict recovery on CNN, if he had been treating Whitney, he would of advised her to take two years off. In 2010, Whitney told Oprah she was clean, I think she just bit off more than she could chew and it killed her. For those of us who have dealt with drugs issues, whether its our own or family/friends, the rule is take one day at a time. Sometimes planning ahead can lead to one’s demise.

I’ll miss Whitney. But like all great artists, her legacy will live through her music and talent. Be sure to watch the Grammys tonight, Jennifer Hudson will pay special tribute to Whitney Houston.

Ms. Dewey goes from studious to sexy!!! Whose Ms. Dewey?? It was Windows attempt to make their own “google” only with this interactive character called “Ms. Dewey” played by the lovely Janina Gavankar.  I watched Janina on the “L Word” where she played this casanova-like character “Papi” grrrr name sounds hot huh? She only was on the L Word for one season… boo… it was funny, there would be a bunch of bars around the Castro in San Francisco that would host “L Word Sundays” lesbians and their friends would flock these bars… during intense scenes… you could hear a pin drop.

I should of blogged about this video a long time ago, I’m really trying to get back into blogging and writing, so really, whatever I’m writing here its nothing new. You probably even have even seen this video. Janina is no stranger to music, in a few inteviews, she’s always considered herself a musician before being an actress.

On Kanye’s “808s and Heartbreak” I really loved “Love Lockdown” the beats… the lyrics… we witnessed a new Kanye. And Janina’s version is just as amazing… in her own twist. Some have called her the new “It” girl, I guess I’ve always thought she had it, the music pundits thought they “discovered” her… she has been doing her thing for a long time, it’s just the pundits weren’t listening.

Petz lives in a media cave, she loves Janina’s music, but Carmen was her favorite L Word character
