Whitney Houston's tragic final moments as she sang to herself in bath before drowning
Whitney Houston spent her last moments feasting on food and singing to herself before she was discovered dead in her bathtub, according to reports.The award-winning songstress left the world stunned when she tragically passed away in February 2012 at the age of 48, leaving behind her daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown who she shared with ex-partner Bobbi Brown.Whitney was scheduled to appear at the annual pre-Grammy Awards party hosted by her long-time mentor Clive Davis during the evening on the day she died.READ MORE: Inside Whitney Houston’s 'intimate on all levels' romance with 'lover' Robyn CrawfordOn the morning of February 11, sources claimed she had breakfast at the Beverly Hilton Hotel alongside her daughter Bobbi, but later retired to suite Suite 434 where she ordered more food and took some Xanax.Talking to Radar Online about her drug addiction, a source told Radar Online: "She frequently took anti-anxiety medications to help her sleep after nights of heavy partying."She also took them before big performances to calm her nerves."A while later, Whitney apparently then took a phone call from her cousin, singer Dionne Warwick and discussed seating arrangements for the evening.This was then later followed by another call from her mum, gospel singer Cissy Houston, which the publication described as a "cheerful and upbeat" conversation.The reports also claimed that Whitney is said to have told her assistant that she had a sore throat and was going to take a bath before the pre-Grammys bash at which she was scheduled to perform at.It was then believed that the singer reportedly ordered more food via room service, eating a burger with fries while she ran the bath.

Eminem, Duran Duran, Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie to be inducted into Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame
Eminem, Duran Duran, Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie are all set to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in 2022.Eurythmics, Carly Simon, Judas Priest and Pat Benatar will also be inducted into the Hall Of Fame this year.Kate Bush, Beck, DEVO, Fela Kuti, MC5, New York Dolls, Rage Against The Machine and Dionne Warwick made the initial shortlist for 2022, but didn’t make the final cut.The honourees — voted on by more than 1000 artists, historians and music industry professionals — each “had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture and helped change the course of rock ’n’ roll,” said John Sykes, the chairman of the Rock Hall, in a statement.The 2022 event, which will be the Hall’s 37th annual induction ceremony, will be held on November 5 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.The announcement comes after Parton initially refused the honour on the grounds that she didn’t feel that she had “earned the right”. But she reversed her stance last month to confirm she will accept the honour should she be voted in.Parton continued to explain that, at the time she made her statement bowing out, she hadn’t realised that the institution already included numerous artists from other genres outside the world of rock.

Rock Hall of Fame to Dolly: Voters will decide if you're in
Dolly Parton is still on the list of this year’s nominations for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame despite the country icon asking to be removed because she hasn't “earned that right.”The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation said in a statement Thursday that, in effect, it is up to the voters to decide if Parton is elected.“Dolly’s recommendation, along with the other 16 nominees for the class of 2022 was sent out earlier this month to our 1,200 general ballot voters, the majority of whom are artists themselves, for consideration for induction at our ceremony.”On Monday, Parton went on social media to “respectfully bow out” of the process, saying she did not want to take votes away from the remaining nominees. Parton had no immediate comment on the Hall's decision.Parton was named on the Rock Hall shortlist last month, alongside fellow first-time nominees Eminem, Lionel Richie, Duran Duran and A Tribe Called Quest.Other artists and groups being considered for induction are Rage Against the Machine, Pat Benatar, Dionne Warwick, Carly Simon, Judas Priest, Beck, Kate Bush, DEVO, Eurythmics, Fela Kuti, MC5 and the New York Dolls.Parton is most associated with country music and is in the Country Hall of Fame, but she has performed songs with a rock feel.
