    I find it very disrespectful for people to ask if one of their faves was there. I’m a Beyoncé fan and I got tired of seeing people tweet “Is Bey there” or others tweeting “Is Mariah There” if that was the only reason why y’all watched Whitney’s funeral then you’re pathetic. I watched her funeral because I listen to her music and I love her as well. Just because I stan for Bey doesn’t mean I only just listen to her. I like a lot of different artists as well.

    Who the f*** cares about Bey or surrogate Baby Blue at the funeral.

    She betta be at home learning how to raise a kid and not putting out more booty ass songs

    When Bey passes, a majority of her classics. Are slutty fast food hits just like Rihanna

    A very inspiring funeral service.

    Alicia got me crying ! Stevie was wonderful. And Tyler proved to the world he’s more than the entertainer we know. Kevin Costner was amazing as well.

    And Pastor Winans slayyyyyed (If that is appropriate to say lol).

    Wonderful !

    RIP Whitney Houston!

    TGJ Highlights just seem like the wrong word. It was a touching service. I saw Ray J and he really was torn up, when they were taking the coffin out of the church he reached out and then broke down. MJB was the first out of the church, and i expected to see Monica but didn’t. it was a really nice service.

    I especially loved Cece Winans performance, but everyone was great.

    I loved Kevin C’s words of how he felt about Whitney and Bebe’s musings on Whitney as a friend.

    Very moving stuff. Rest well Whitney.

    I agree – Highlights? That really isn’t the right word. It’s a funeral – not an entertainment purpose.

    Marvin preaching was the best part…… This is the first time some people have seen what its like in a black church….. my mama was about to stat shouting LOL

  20. JohnVidal February 18, 2012

    Clive and Kevin Costner words were great cos they reminded kids what a true legend means. Alicia´s performance was beautiful
    And yes Beyonce or Mariah were there but we didn´t see them cos this is about WHITNEY HOUSTON and no one else
    RIP dear Whitney. The pain has finally ended for you
    Thinking about Cissy breaks my heart though

  21. muni February 18, 2012

    Alicia Keys was really touching!!

  22. CHRISTYN February 18, 2012

    NEW HOPE BAPTIST CHURCH, stop saying New Life!

  23. Anne February 18, 2012

    Don’t understand why Beyonce is being brought up, especially in a negative light. We do not personally know these artists so we should condemn or bash them. Did anyone listen to Whitney’s bodyguard Ray? We need to stop ridiculing and constantly criticizing these artists who dedicate their lives to entertaining others and adding a little shine to the day of those who appreciate the talents they share. For those who are just curious yes they named Beyonce as one of the attenders. For those who choose to bash her or any other artist who has done nothing to you, shame on you. We all need to do better. This site is one big artist bashing site at times and THIS NEEDS TO CHANGE!

    RIP WHITNEY! THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR GIFT, THE VOICE. The
    service was beautiful and I think it was a reflection of Whitney.
