News of Whitney Houston’s death was initially met with skepticism, disbelief, and outright denial. Perhaps it’s because we continued to collectively remember her as the baby faced songstress of the Eighties with bubblegum hued lipstick and perpetually perky ringlets. But, Houston was far more than simply a talented woman with powerful pipes: she epitomized diva in every single way and America loved her for it. Below you’ll find several photos of the late Houston- think of it as our tribute to the woman who told ladies everywhere that, “It’s not right, but it’s okay- I’m gonna make it anyway.”
Ultimately, Whitney encouraged millions of her fans to be fabulous, to be fierce, and to not be afraid to wear your heart on your (embellished) sleeve. What was your fave Whitney song?
