Beyonce issues statement on Whitney Houston

We all miss Whitney Houston. However, Beyonce wants you to know how deeply saddened she was after learning the diva died at the age of 48 years old on Saturday afternoon. Here’s Bey’s full statement on her passing:

“The loss of Whitney Houston is painful. I remember meeting Whitney for the first time when I was 15. She was the ultimate legend. The ultimate woman. Not only was she confident, poised, stunningly beautiful and intelligent, but she was sincere and kind. She took the time to make everyone feel like they were very important to her. I, like every singer, always wanted to be just like her. Her voice was perfect. Strong but soothing. Soulful and classic. Her vibrato, her cadence, her control. So many of my life’s memories are attached to a Whitney Houston song. She is our queen and she opened doors and provided a blueprint for all of us. God bless her.” - Beyoncé
