    I saw the photo of whitney and my personal oppinion about the photo is that it should not have been on the cover of any one magazine, let her rest in peace and have some respect for her family and her legacy, none of us are perfect in this world and never will be. We live in a world where anythings sale we are at a all time low in America!!!

    The family was kind enough to let the world into the homegoing services…the world should of been courteous enough to let the family have the one moment of viewing her alone…. thats all they ask was for that time. selfish, greeding and inconsiderate.

    I do not ever buy cheap tabloids, but i honestly was curious about how she looked in the casket, i admit it. There have been several celebs that had open caskets for viewing, because fans want to see them even when they are dead. I am one of those people that will attend a wake, and will peek in the other rooms to see who is in there, i never go up close, i just want to see.

    If a more tasteful magazine had done a full spread, including this shot, i would have probably bought it. She really looked beautiful warm and like she was in a peaceful sleep.

    whitney lived in the public eye while alive.Why should she not be in the public eye in death.she did have a god given talent.the only thing that bothers me is she has been put so high on a pedstal.and i think that is a bad message for our youth. in fact she was a junkie and she died the way she lived

    The National Enquirer is NOT to blame for this!! That paper has been doing all the “distasteful, disrespectful, and low-down” things it’s been doing for many years. Whoever snapped the pic and sold it to them is TOTALLY responsible. That person is the one who was trusted by the family to honor and respect the deceased as well as the family’s wishes. EVERY family has a Judas, and that Judas has his/her price. Who is to blame if a hit (planned killing) is carried out? The killer or the one who solicited the killer and gave pics and whereabout info???

    Even though Whitney was very beautiful in her casket picture I think it should have been left to the worlds imagination of how she may have looked. It was deceitful to take the picture when it was a wish of the family to be private. R.I.P. Ms. Whitney Houston
