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.

While the use of pills here may, or may not, be appropriate, as a piece of art the picture is a fantastic likeness of W.H.

Considering how she lived her life, this work is offensive and that he should profit from it, really offensive.

Enough with the pretending she wasn't a drug addict! And for such a beautiful girl, who grew up privileged, she had the angry low class street girl in her. I never understood that.

Poor taste TMZ!!!!!!!! You guys and the artist are very insensitive. Please don't forget about this lady's child that has to see all of this. You should put yourself in their place and ask yourself if you would want you family to be tortured like this.

A sand painting using cocaine and baking soda instead of sand would be even nicer.

I'd hate to see what psych meds the TMZ's staff has in their medicine cabinet, bunch of disturbed, dope smoking loony tunes.
