Whitney Houston Who magazine tribute issue

Yes, the tribute issues are here.

Whitney Houston's death last week was a shock to her millions of fans.

And now, all the magazines have started delivering their editions honouring the singing superstar.

In a 20-page special, Who magazine pays tribute to the talent - and the tragedy - of the pop icon and troubled singer, reflecting on her life in pictures, her musical achievements and her addictions... which ultimately claimed her life at the age of just 48.

The issue chronicles Whitney's life: from her teen model years, to her transition to music, and her rapid rise to global fame, including her notorious marriage to rapper Bobby Brown.

The issue also unearths details of Whitney's last few days, and reveals what really happened in her shocking final hours.

Aretha Franklin tells Who mgazine: "Let us all applaud and remember Whitney. Remember the hits. Forget the misses. A true superstar has gone on."


The public's appetite for all things Whitney is currently insatiable (who hasn't logged onto YouTube to revisit her songs, her interviews, even clips from controversial show 'Being Bobby Brown' - I have) and this week's edition of Who is definitely a collector's issue (I have already snuck a peek at the other weekly mags and as always, Who's version is the most comprehensive of them all).

On sale now and until Thursday next week.

Here is the entire Diane Sawyer interview with Whitney Houston, where Whitney infamously coined the phrase: "Crack is whack".


  1. How deceptive....she has not been 'on top' in 10 years, top to the 'hangers on' crowd..she wasted a wonderful talent,,,she was not thinking about her child......

  2. Hi Eliza, it is definitely very sad her young girl is left behind. This is the most gutting part. I think we can all agree she hadn't been 'on top' for years. She was, however, planning on doing good things with her voice and her talent, if you listen to mentor Clive Davis's speech at her funeral. On top or not, it is all 'round a waste and deeply sad.
