The Life and Death of an ICON a cautionary tale
By Bonnie Vent
I have received many emails regarding Whitney Houston. As of this writing I have not heard from her. However, I have spoken with 2 other celebrities who did comment on the life and death of an ICON.
Michael Jackson stated that a very ugly story was about to unfold. He said he was forced to do things he did not want to do. He also said he thought they needed him, but things were going on quite well without him. Certainly record breaking business deals have been made in his name since his passing, but sadly this is even more accurate with the new Immortal Tour. It plays the same venues and sells tickets to the same audience as was planned for Michael’s This is it Tour. Michael said he was worth more dead than alive and this is now a profoundly sad fact.
Marilyn Monroe referred to the dark people that lurk around during a conversation we had with her at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel. She said they were there when she was alive. She spoke about being so marketed and packaged that people forgot there was a “regular girl” behind the image. She left a warning for those interested in the entertainment industry. She said: It is ok to let them pretty up your hair but don’t let them redecorate your soul”
Should Whitney reach out to me I will do my best to assist her, but I hope that she does not need me and is now released from the dark forces that overshadowed her life. Following your dreams with your god given gifts should not result in premature death.
