Whitney Houston

"Pretty can turn into pretty awful if you act that way," Whitney Houston once said. "I was taught that by my mom. She saw what happened to women who took their looks as everything." Following gospel diva Cissy Houston's advice, she turned from teen modeling to a singing career than would garner nine albums, six Grammys and over 140 million records sold. Houston died tragically on February 11, 2012, by accidental drowning in a bathtub, with heart disease and cocaine use listed as contributing factors.
