Don't get me wrong, she was super talented and I really did like her music but it wasn't like I was like, "Oh my days I freaking love you," but it's just a shame to lose another incredibly gifted artist to drugs.
The reason I'm doing this post is because "I Will Always Love You" kinda holds a special place in my heart, but for nothing that I was ever involved in, or actually concerns me.
My brother was eight when The Bodyguard came out; I was four. I obvz don't remember it, and actually only saw the film like, three years ago, but I (along with everybody else on the planet) have known this song forever.
The reason that the song tugs on my heart strings a little bit, is that my Mum said she used to sing this to my brother and I see it as a promise to him, from her, that for the rest of his life, no matter what happens, through le good and le bad she literally will always love him.
Dunno; it's a little heavy salad for a Sunday morning like, but it's the one thing I always think of when I hear the song.
I can imagine that Bobbles is feeling a bit guilty today, so remember kids:
