The cause of her death has not yet been determined.

Among the celebrities at the funeral were Houston’s cousin Dionne Warwick, her ex-husband Bobby Brown, R. Kelly, and the couple’s 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina.

    Could you please post a decent photo of Beyonce on your webpage. I am tired of looking at the crack of her butt hanging out everytime I come on this website.

    How nice of CNN to keep Jesse “Racial-Grievance Industry” Jackson in frame just to the left of the pulpit. He has to insert himself into everything, doesn’t he.
