And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Whitney Houston Is Looking To You

Earlier this evening, Ryan and I took a nap, and when we woke up our Facebook was flooded with the news that Whitney Houston had died.  We both looked at each other and said, "WTF!  How can this possibly happen?"

I grew up at the height of Whitney's career.  The 1980's were hers and no matter who got in her way, ie. Madonna, Cindy Lauper, Taylor Dayne, Jodi Watley, Vanessa Williams - she pushed them aside with the sole power of her voice.  I honestly believe that if she had not married that loser Bobby Brown, she would still be with us tonight.  Her career went downhill after that.

So many people today were inspired by this woman, we can only imagine how much she meant to the one who will be taking every Grammy on earth tomorrow, Adele.  I mean, every artist can, and will say that Whitney touched their lives in some way or another.  Hell, she touched mine more than she could possibly know.  I used to sit and listen to her when my relationships went sour, I used to listen to her when I wanted something uplifting to make my day.  She was the epitome of musical genius in my eyes, and to millions more around the world.  You will truly be missed Whitney, you will truly be missed - 'I Will Always Love You'

The last time I wrote a I blog on Whitney Houston was on September 11, 2009 on my old MySpace blog, and as a tribute to her, I will re-post it as I had back then.

The following week after posting this blog, Whitney's newest album, "I Look To You" hit #1 on Billboard's U.S. Chart.
