Pop queen Whitney Houston dies at age 48.
Grammy-winning singer and actress Whitney Houston, one of the most talented performers of her generation who lived a turbulent personal life and admitted drug use, died on Saturday in a Beverly Hills hotel room. She was declared dead about 4 p.m. after paramedics from the Beverly Hills Fire Department spent close to 30 minutes trying to revive her. Police said there were no obvious signs of criminal intent at the scene and her death is under investigation. Houston’s death at age 48 came on the eve of music’s biggest night—the Grammy Awards. She will be remembered Sunday in a tribute by Jennifer Hudson, organizers said.
