Is it me or is it that just as soon as the overwhelming shock of losing the King Of Pop Michael Jackson and the compelling & timeless talent of Amy Winehouse just became disgestible to my emotions, here we have yet another loss of immense talent in the musical icon that is Whitney Houston that seems to be now a bit too much to assimilate!

While it is just too early to say what the cause of her death is, in actuality it really doesn't matter at this point as it won't bring her back.

But this unexpected episode of a severe tragedy simply makes one think of the deadly forces behind the Colgate smiles and engineered Hollywood appearances that drive a person to a lifestyle that quickly takes them out of this life.

What is it about being a celebrity in today's world that always almost seems to bring on tragic consequences when rising past the glass ceiling of Hollywood mediocrity?

We do know that the hectic travel schedules, the rushed meals, the medicated emotional highs as well as the pressure to perform in machine like fashion day in and day out just might have something to do with their eventual demise.

The human mind, body and spirit was not made to handle the demanding schedule, lifestyle and isolation of celebrity life. Some fall victim to these invisible imbalances faster than others while some seem to brush it off as though it were nothing.

Those I might add are definitely in the minority and I believe it is safe to say, that another Whitney Houston type of tragedy is really not to far off from the horizon and almost guaranteed to happen again.

When will we ever learn that life is too fragile and too short and we need to get back to the basics of self preservation.
