One of the most saddening deaths that has happened in a longtime occured last night. I was shocked when I heard that iconic singer Whitney Houston had died a few hours earlier, so shocked in fact, my face turned white as my eyes teared up. To me, Whitney was one of the many artists that influenced me to write music and pursue music as a career. No one ever got to her level and matched her vocal ability, she will always be known as “The Voice” in my eyes. I’ve been blasting her debut album all day long on my stereo. She truly shared ‘The Greatest Love of All.“ R.I.P. Whitney.

TIMELINE: February 2012

Wow. Your eyes are not deceiving you. I actually finally got this timeline done almost 6 months after I posted January 2012. That’s in part to album promo, the holidays, etc., but also due, in large part, to the scope and length of this timeline. As I’ve progressed through 2011 and into 2012, there are much more articles, tweets, pictures and videos to wade through and make sense of. 

But I think this one will be worth it.

August 2011 was what I call “bulletproof weeks.” February 2012 had a similar feel. Harry had “broken up” with Caroline at the very end of January (the same day he flew to America to start his American career wow what a coincidence) and Louis and Eleanor were barely half-assing it. These 4 weeks are so important, as I believe they were the last weeks they had where they were able to publicly display the reality and nature of their relationship without a lot of negative consequences. 

And they did not hold back.
