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.

i think it looks cool, ppl need to stop getting to "disgusted" over a picture that in no way insults whitney or her memory, just because it is made out of pills means nothing. people need to lighten up, she did this to herself no one else, she honestly only has herself to blame. u can blmae bobby or whatever but in the end she took it no one forced her to take it.

I don't see this as substantially different from memorializing James Dean or Dale Earndardt through twisted auto wreckage, or Janis Joplin as a special edition Southern Comfort bottle made to look like her, or naming a potent new creamy ****tail "Milk" as a nod to Michael Jackson's manner of death. It's all pretty ghoulish, whatever label (like "art" or "social statement")you hang on it to shield your callousness from your own view.

TMZ It is very disrespectful to joke around with someone who has passed, and more importantly because of their addiction. Suppose it was your mother, sister, daughter? Let's show some respect for people who are no longer here, better yet those who are here too.

Whitney was a stupid crack head ho so this is no big deal. Her daughter Bobbi kristina is another drug using fool so she will end up like her mother. Stupid self entitled ghetto drug addicts who get what they deserve.
