Yeah, it's really depressing how many peoples' reactions essentially have the tone of, "That bitch got what she deserved."
It's really small-minded and it reeks of jealousy.
Let me tell you, just being sort of the center of attention in the most minor way ever for a few days at BootyCon each year is kind of a reality-bending experience. It's a blessing for sure, but after three days of that I can easily see how twenty or thirty years of 24-7-365 fame would warp somebody's mind. The pressure, the spotlight, the unlimited access to drugs and money, etc.

Agreed. I told Sachi on FB that people like to talk about how celebs should be able to get themselves straightened out and not wreck themselves on drugs/alcohol/etc. because they have all this money and resources. But being surrounded by sycophants who pander to you and in some cases try to bring you down just for the hell of it makes it even harder.
I wasn't a big fan of Whitney's music myself but people freaking out over the fact that her fans are actually upset and posting about it is annoying. She had her demons, but damn you'd have to be an idiot or living under a rock back in the 80s and 90s because she was everywhere and such a talented singer.

In a way the money makes it harder. Most people i know who have gotten clean and sober did so when they lost most of everything. It's gotta be hard to accept you have a bad problem when you have all that money and those comforts.

Vanilla Ice has his own home-improvement show on DIY. That shit is beast! He fixes up cabinets and hooks chillin' peeps up with sweet mega dens ... and he's one SOB that won't ever fucking die. Not that I'm hatin' on him. Just a fact jack.
PS: ... I've always wanted to say that shooting Biggie was easier than shooting Tupac just because, you know, one dude was skinny.
