Man, that's sad.

It's always sad when someone that talented dies so young...wanna bet it was a drug overdose?

Obviously not enough times...or long enough.

In any case.....when it comes to that stuff, its not IF but WHEN.

Amazing how people with such promise and talent seem bent on self destruction. She wasn't the first...and won't be the last.

Just because she went to rehab PHYSICALLY doesn't mean she was really MENTALLY wanting to be rehabilitated, does it? Until YOU want to quit for YOU, how does rehab help? Can rehab help me if I am wanting to quit for the wrong reasons like say "My wife will leave me if I don't" or "My children have been bugging me to quit" or "We had an intervention", etc, etc?

How many rehab times will it take if you honestly want to quit because you really decided that you want to quit?

How many rehab times will it take if you are not personally committed?

I have had friends and family that quit alcohol, cigarettes and what not simply because they wanted to quit. No 12 step dance, etc, etc. OTOH, I have many acquaintences that quit and went back to the same vice in spite of the 12 step dance, prayer groups, hypnosis, etc, etc. All of the failures had one thing in common. They wanted to quit for all kinds of reasons besides them deciding that they themselves want to quit.

She was talented and original, which set her apart from many (most?) other pop stars.

I will agree that there is little talent among the pop "stars".
