6ix9ine, Whitney Houston and the singers afflicted with drugs (Part I)

Many famous singers in the music scene have fallen into drug addiction and lost their career. Even Whitney Houston or Mac Miller both died of drug overdose.


Aaron Carter:

Carter has been given the title “Prince of Pop” in the early 21st century. By the age of 13, three million copies of album Aaron's Party (Come Get It) had been sold over in the US and certified platinum. Early success makes Carter plunge into dissipation and drug addiction. And now, 30-year-old Carter has gone over the pinnacle of his career and the title"Prince of pop" has belonged to Justin Bieber. 


A few days ago, Carter was questioned by a fan on the social network that why he “never reached the level of success” as Justin Bieber. 

“Listen man. I can’t sit here & just not say anything to that, I’ve been born in this industry before he was born.” Carter responded. “I’ve had harder times and always bounce back. No I’m not Justin Bieber I’m Aaron Carter. I’m also in construction,” he continued. “I paved the way. These kids have NEVER paid me homage.” 


Etta James:

James began her career with the band Creolettes. In 1960 Ms. James was signed by Chess Records, the Chicagolabel that was home to Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters and other leading lights of black music. She quickly had a string of hits, including “All I Could Do Was Cry,” “Trust in Me” and “At Last,” which established her as Chess’s first major female star. Sadly, the American singer became addicted to drugs and often went into rehab at the pinnacle of her career. 


Drugs made James's career interrupted for a while. In 1974, she overcame the adversity to rebuild her image in the fans. Prior to his death in 2012, James won six Grammy Awards. The New York Times said that if her career had not been interrupted by drugs, James would have devoted more to music.


Amy Winehouse:

Winehouse is England's great musical talent. "Winehouse has an even better start than Adele," wrote the Daily Mail. Winehouse made her name popular over the world when she released her album Back to Black. This is the best-selling album in the UK with over 1.85 million copies. At the pinnacle of her career, Winehouse was spotted using stimulants in 2008. 


Later, Winehouse's addiction became more severe. In May 2009, Winehouse's father - Mr Mitch - expressed his sadness: "I just want my daughter back as before." At that time, the marriage breakup with Blake Fielder-Civil made the British singer depressed. In July 2011, Winehouse was found dead at her home in Camden. Newspapers in the UK claimed that Winehouse has died of drug use overdose.
