I agree. If she "was" an illegal drug addict and went to a "legal" drug addict, she is still an addict. Terrible disease and a terrible life for all involved. She was very talented and drugs destroyed her, very sad. Doesn't put her on a pedestal to me.

Very sad to see someone waste their gift for drugs. She choose drugs over here daughter her family. It's just a dam shame. Money might not be able to buy happiness but it can kill ya.

Same reason people glorify Elvis.

Agreed and I would also like to hear less about Elvis on his death anniversary date. Birthdate. How long has this guy been dead? Really. About 35 yrs now. He has a postage stamp. He, a drug addict , was given a USA postage stamp. Then again, Bille Holiday was also given a USA postage stamp.
