Whitney Houston may have had a premonition of her own death, telling friends she “really wanted to see Jesus” in the days before she died. Friends tell TMZ Houston quoted the Bible, sang hymns, and talked a lot about the afterlife in recent days, and said she “felt like her time was coming.” After singing “Yes, Jesus Loves Me” in her final public appearance, Houston told a friend the next morning, “I’m gonna go see Jesus … I want to see Jesus. You know, he’s so cool … I really want to see that Jesus.” Read more…
Oh, Nancy Grace. Yesterday, the commentator implied on CNN that, despite there being no evidence of foul play, Whitney Houston’s death was not an accident:
“I’d like to know who was around her, who, if anyone gave her drugs — following alcohol and drugs — and who let her slip, or pushed her, underneath that water? Apparently, no signs of force or trauma to the body … Who let Whitney Houston go under her water?”
Well, I have a few questions for Nancy. I’d like to know who was around her, who, if anyone gave her beans — following her “Dancing With The Stars” rehearsal — and who let her nipple slip, or pushed her nipple, out of that dress? Apparently, there were no signs of force or trauma to the body. So who let Nancy Grace fart on live television? [Daily Mail UK]

This weekend, the music industry lost an incomparable talent with the death of singer Whitney Houston, at the much-too-young age of 48. Here’s a look back at her career and life in pictures.
At tonight’s Grammy Awards, Jennifer Hudson was tasked with singing “I Will Always Love You” in tribute to Whitney Houston, who passed away yesterday at the age of 48. It was emotional and flawless, the perfect, if brief, memoriam. Watch it above.
UPDATE (Sunday, 3:45 p.m. EST): TMZ is now reporting that Whitney Houston was found in her room’s bathtub and that it’s possible she drowned? Sources also say prescription drugs were found in the room and that Houston took Xanax before performances; only an autopsy will be able to reveal if she died via drowning, overdose, or some other cause. An autopsy is scheduled for today, but an official cause of death won’t be available until the toxicology report is complete.
Seriously sad news to report: the Associated Press is reporting that singer Whitney Houston died today at the age of 48. She is survived by her daughter Bobbi Kristina (with ex husband Bobby Brown). The singer was photographed leaving a pre-Grammy party on Thursday night looking potentially intoxicated. Houston, of course, battled drug addiction in the past, although there is no word on her cause of death. In May 2011, Houston’s representative said that the singer had checked into rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. She had recently been seen out and about with former boyfriend Ray J.
