Music lovers wandered around with their jaws dropped this weekend after hearing the news of Whitney Houston's death. Everyone assumed that the troubled pop star was a victim of her own addictions, and they likely weren't entirely wrong.
The singer was found lifeless at her Beverly Hills hotel room in a bathtub. The autopsy today revealed that there was water found in Houston's lungs. The world is waiting to speculate on the toxicology report that will be released in a few weeks.
Houston is yet another beloved idol whose use of narcotics paved the road to her demise. During Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party, fellow singer Tony Bennett called for legalization of drugs before offering a tribute to the late songtress with "How Do You Keep the Music Playing?"
