I split this from the large thread so that no one misses it. She will definitely be on several magazine covers, so let's post them in this thread. I just hope they're respectful. Thanks.

And the Lord asks me what I did with my life,
I will say I spent it with you.

As far as I saw the covers of german weekly magazines I won't post any, because they are disrespectful in their subtitles...and within the magazine stories. I hope I find a gracefully one, which I can buy and post here.

Not quite related but I was looking for some stuff in my desk, and I accidentally found Whitney's issue of Instyle from a couple years ago... I didn't even know it was still here. And on the front cover it says "Whitney! Happy, healthy, and ready for what's next!" And just reading that headline made me really really upset all over again. :(

Thanks, that's perfect. We're looking for respectful ones, not tabloids, etc. Tribute covers.

Lisa, when are they due to hit the stands? I've been looking daily and can't find anything. Next week, perhaps?

This Week's Cover: Whitney Houston's life and legacy

Whitney Houston’s tragic death on the eve of the Grammy Awards was a shock to the music community and the world. Her fans and colleagues have struggled with her legacy in the days since her passing, reconciling her one-of-a-kind talent with her battle with substance abuse and troubled personal life. In this week’s issue of EW, we explore Houston’s life, her influences, and how she will be remembered.

At the Grammys, Houston’s impact was apparent. Bonnie Raitt, Diane Warren, and other major music industry figures spoke to EW about her influence on their own work and on the music business as a whole. ”She broke the glass ceiling for female R&B singers to cross over,” Raitt said.

Houston’s music is what will live on. From “How Will I Know” to “I Will Always Love You,” we’ve compiled an ultimate Whitney playlist, featuring 25 of Whitney Houston’s best songs, as well as a collection of her life in photos.

For more on Whitney Houston and our complete Grammys coverage, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on stands this Friday.

Whitney Houston

Before she was a six-time Grammy winner, before she became a glamorous pop diva who influenced generations of power-voiced belters and shattered sales records in the music industry, Whitney Houston was a shy, slight girl known as "Nippy" to her family in Newark, N.J.

"She was everyone's dream daughter. She was sweet. She sang in church," photographer Bette Marshall, who shot Whitney as a teenager, tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story, which chronicles the life of the troubled singer. Houston died at 48 on Feb. 11. "And you knew she’d be a superstar."

But Houston's ascent to superstardom was often rocky, and she struggled with her public image as America's Singing Sweetheart.

"She was in pain from living almost a double life," says a record exec who worked with Houston for many years. "She wanted to be down with her community. That’s who she really was. But because of her career, she also had to portray this pure pop princess in gorgeous gowns, singing songs the white community adored."

Wonderful Whitney: Remembering Whitney Houston



My blog today is a bit of a diversion from the norm. But I want to share with you my personal recollections of Whitney Houston. The news of her untimely passing has shocked us all, and I am just heartbroken when I think about the young Whitney I knew before she became Whitney Houston, the Superstar.
I had the pleasure of working with Whitney during her high school years when she was a teen model. I was a fashion editor at Seventeen magazine and then Fashion Director at YM. She was a delightful, sweet, wonderful person, and all of us who worked with her loved her. She was truly beautiful inside and out. Anytime we were booking models for a photo shoot, we would always say, “Let’s book Whitney” “See if Whitney is available” “Whitney would be great for this story.” She was never a diva and she was always professional. She showed up on time and made our jobs easier by doing her best in front of the camera. She never complained if days ran long and cheerfully did whatever was expected.
I remember a photo shoot in the Hamptons on one of those dog days of summer in August. It was 95 degrees and we were photographing back-to-school clothing. Whitney, wearing wool socks, boots, wool trousers and a sweater, was asked by the photographer to climb up a very high sand dune. She did so for quite some time and kept smiling all throughout that steep climb. She never uttered a word of dissent, even though the heat was brutal. She posed on that dune until the photographer had his money shot. That was Whitney: agreeable, kind, eager to do her best and a real trooper. I can picture her sitting on a studio floor in between shots, her schoolbooks open on her lap as she studied. She was not only diligent and hardworking but she was also fun to be around. Whitney loved to laugh and when she smiled she lit up the room. I traveled with her to the Dominican Republic for another fashion shoot and have vivid memories of her laughing and splashing in the sea—always sunny and smiling and happy.
Here are a few photos from Whitney's modeling days in YM, starting in August 1981

None of us knew that Whitney’s godmother was Aretha Franklin or that Dionne Warwick was her cousin. Whitney was modest and never bragged about her megastar connections. We did know that her mother was Cissy Houston, renowned gospel singer, and that Whitney sang in her church choir. But it wasn’t until one day at a photo shoot when Whitney told us that she was going to sing with her mom that night that we discovered what a rare talent she was. Cissy Houston was performing at Roseland, and Whitney was slated to perform one song on her own. It was her first solo performance in front of a big NYC crowd and she was understandably nervous. She asked if we could all come and support her…and we did. I remember standing in the crowd near the stage and watching Whitney emerge from the wings and walk slowly onto the stage after her mom had introduced her. She tentatively took the mike, smiled at the audience, closed her eyes and started to sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” She was magnificent and that beautiful, clear voice resonated throughout the room. The crowd went wild as so many more crowds would in the years to come.
There were occasions when Whitney and I would take the bus together to our homes in New Jersey. I lived in Montclair at the time, and we would head to Port Authority after a day at a studio. We would order ice cream cones and sit laughing and talking until it was time to board the bus. I would sometimes drive her to her home in East Orange, and on one of those days, knowing that she was about to graduate from high school the following month, I asked Whitney what her plans were after graduation. I can picture her sitting in the passenger seat of my car, her books on her lap as she turned to me and said, “I really want to be a singer. Like my mom. I just love to sing. But I’m scared and nervous I won’t make it. Do you think I have a chance?”
Here was this unbelievably talented girl who was about to thrill the world with her magic questioning whether she might make it in the music industry. Of course, neither of us could even imagine at the time the incredible impact she would have upon the music and entertainment world. I looked at her and said, “Whitney, you are a beautiful person and you have an amazing voice. If you can’t succeed, I don’t know who can. I’m pretty sure you’ll make it, Whitney.” She smiled her sweet, lovely smile and thanked me for the words of encouragement.
And just three years later, in 1986, I wept tears of joy as I watched her on TV accepting her very first Grammy. “You made it Whitney!” I thought.
Today, it’s tears of sadness and my heart goes out to her mother and daughter, to her mentor, Clive Davis, and to all her friends and family. I will always treasure the very special memories I have of this beautiful, loving person and, dear Whitney, I hope you know that we will always, always love you.
