Whitney Houston's Portrait

Hard to Swallow

3/1/2012 9:30 AM PST BY Johnny Lopez

0301_whitney_houston_pills_SplashCrack is whack, but pills are ... a work of art?

A portrait of late singer Whitney Houston made up entirely of pills has been created by mosaic artist Jason Mecier. In the past, Mecier has made similar portraits of Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson and Courtney Love among others.

Ibuprofen, Xanax, Midol and amoxicillin were some of the pills found in Whitney's hotel room when she died last month.

Seriously? All the people this "artist" has done as well as Whitney were all drug addicts. Its pretty pathetic that someone feels your legacy should be portrayed in pills.

Has anyone ever given thought that the amoxicillian could have raised her blood pressure? No one has addressed this issue, antibiotics are very strong and can raise blood pressure, causing all sorts of acute problems, she could have been allergic to penecillan...everyone focuses on the negative.

The artist needs to get a job and stop trying to get publicity off Whitney and other people. I doubt he would be making art made out of pills of his own mother, sister, wife, daughter, etc. if they had a problem...I hope Whitney's family doesn't see this, because it would be like a kick in the teeth.

This is distasteful and disrespectful! You all at TMZ are not much better than the Enquirer and the Sun! Get some class and post something worth reading! Little be told half of you are probably pill popping, coke sniffing, crack smoking pot heads...Let her rest....GEEEZZZZZ

Who would even think about using pills to draw art?

Use Jelly Beans or M&Ms, or Skittles.

Pills just makes the artist look like a junkie.

A lot of the comments make references to pharmaceutical companies. The medication taken correctly and not abused works miracles and saves lives. In no way should they be responsible for having anything to do with her death. No one shoved pills down her throat, and washed it down with a large amount of alcohol.
