Ha, America, you make me laugh. It is never illegal drugs who kill your stars. It is always prescription medication. You idiots.
People close to Whitney Houston were aware she was taking Xanax — and according to our sources, she told them she always took it before big performances … like the pre-Grammy party she was scheduled to perform at last night.
We’re told Whitney believed the Xanax helped calm her nerves before going out in front of people. According to our sources, Whitney claimed to have anxiety and panic attacks and the pills helped her relax before taking the stage.
Our sources say the people inside of Whitney’s hotel room when she died were aware Whitney would take Xanax before shows. We’re told those people never saw Whitney take any pills, she would just tell them she did. They are unaware how many she would take or if she took any other drugs.
DUMB ASSES. THE SHOULD USE ANY EXCUSE TO GET THE MUPPETS ON AS CHILDREN WILL THEN WATCH. IDIOTS.
It was bad enough that just about every eligible tune in the Best Original Song category was omitted from this year’s Academy Awards nominations. Or that, due to their complicated voting system, the music branch of the Academy Of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences saw fit to nominate only two songs: Rio’s “Real In Rio” and The Muppets’ ”Man or Muppet” when well-known artists like Elton John, Mary J. Blige, and Sinead O’Connor also had terrific songs in the mix. But now Deadline has learned that neither nominated song will be performed during the Oscar telecast as things stand now. We understand that both studios — Rio‘s Fox and The Muppets‘ Disney — formally protested the decision to skip but received turn-downs. ”It seems like a huge missed opportunity to me, and we certainly tried,” one song insider just told us. Said another song insider: “It doesn’t make sense. They could have so much fun with Muppets and Rio staging.”
