People felt a connection to Whitney by listening to her music just like people feel a connection to starving children by looking a pictures of
People listen to way more music than they do look at pictures of starving children.
(Music is force-fed to us, in many ways.)
That pretty much explains the entire thing. The problem is the American culture (which is spreading, tragically), but do not blame Whitney Houston nor
her fans, because the scope of the problem is much larger.
Blaming her or her fans would mean you should also blame every cook and person who eats anything other than plain rice every day, because they are
overindulging while others go hungry. Yet, we know that the problem of starving children is not simply due to a shortage of food. People die in India
because the food cannot be transported to the people, for example.
Just so we think more about this and do not rush to conclusions. I hope this helps...
