Cher Weighs in on the Tragic Death of Whitney Houston

Cher, the musical diva we all know and love, is known to have quite a few famous friends in addition to her buddies outside of the business. Cher and Whitney Houston are both in an elite class of solo female singers whose careers have spanned decades and who have massive fan followings. They have also been friends for years. 
 
In the aftermath of Whitney’s passing, Cher took to her official Twitter account, @Cher, to answer fans who were asking her for a comment on the tragedy. She explained that life is hard for everyone, but implored people to imagine enduring life’s heartbreaks in the spotlight as Whitney did. She suggests that we all do something to honor Whitney and “don’t sweat the small stuff.” 
 
Only a year ago both Cher and Whitney were shining and glamorous at the pre-Grammy gala of Clive Davis, as reported by the Socialite Life. Cher was stunning in a bold black dress, and Whitney was elegant in a silver gown. Both ladies paid tribute to David Geffen, the music industry mogul who was being honored that evening. Cher called him the smartest man in the room, and Whitney performed on what was ultimately to be her last Grammy night. At the 2011 shindig Clive held before the Grammy Awards ceremony, Whitney paid tribute to her cousin, Dionne Warwick, and performed “Say A Little Prayer for Me,” “Walk On By,” and “That’s What Friends Are For.” 
 
It was only hours before the 2012 gala that Clive Davis was throwing in the very hotel where Whitney passed away that the news came of the 48-year-old superstar’s sudden, unexpected death. The autopsy has been done, but no details have been released. According to Entertainment Wise, Whitney’s body was flown to Newark, New Jersey on Monday, February 13 for a burial, according to The Daily Mail.
