  • Talking about Whitney Houston’s recent death, which has been officially ruled a drowning, Elton John said, “I could have easily ended up like Whitney Houston. It’s a miracle I didn’t. Because I’m sure I did as much cocaine as she ever did.” Why do celebrities always chime in with this It could have been me! thing after a death? I’m thinking of Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse here. It seems a little tasteless to attract attention to yourself and the fact that you were lucky enough not to die. But, hey, he’s Elton John, so I’ll give him a pass.

The singer also had heart disease and cocaine in her system when she died, although the only drugs found in her hotel room where Xanax, Ibuprofen and Midol. A source told TMZ that it’s possible Whitney had a heart attack in the bath and then drowned. [Just Jared, TMZ]

Today in “Real Royal Tenenbaums News” … the internet is aflutter with the rumor that Bobbi Kristina Brown — 19-year-old daughter of the late Whitney Houston — is dating 22-year-old Nick Gordon. Gordon lived with Whitney and Bobbi Kristina from the time he was 12 (though Houston never officially adopted him) and served as an older brother figure to Bobbi Kris. Apparently, the romance rumors started when Gordon tweeted the above photo (which some suggest has, like, sexy overtones?) and referred to her in the possessive (“MY Krissi”). Then he responded to the rumors, writing on Twitter, “Yea we got a little closer and what!!!!” never denying that the two are an item and retweeting those who defended the (alleged) romance. So, while it’s not a direct confirmation, it’s not a denial either.  So, yeah… [Twitter via Crushable]

This Target greeting card is one of those things that was offensive to begin with, but crossed way over the good taste line when Whitney Houston passed away. Luckily, the chain had the good sense to realize that they needed to get the card off the shelves ASAP. “The card was in our stores prior to Ms. Houston’s death. As soon as this was brought to our attention, we began the process of removing the card from all applicable stores,” a rep told TMZ. Still, I’m cringing. And wondering whom it ever would have been appropriate to give this card to in the first place. [ABC News, Reddit (photo)]
