When someone dies young in Hollywood like Brittany Murphy did today immediately the Forums and Board are swamped with searches for that person and drugs.
Have we really become so skeptical as a society of everything coming out of Hollywood being a result of socially irresponsible behavior?
I'm not seeing this death as making any sense, and with no real history of risky behavior, I'm going to take the higher road and go with Cardiac Arrest as a result of the complications of diabetes.
I for one hope there is no drug involvement at all. We've kind of had enough of that with the Michael Jackson thing.
i remember the bull around River Phoenix's death.The reports of GBH overdose was crud. His GHB (it's real name)levels were normal!
drugs can be anything..."any substance that effects the way your mind and body works"
Drugs have a way of showing up. So, many people simply jump to the conclusion, someone else has. They adapt it for their point of view, even if they don't believe.
Not everyone does that. But, a number of people do.
I'm not to be included. I wait to learn everything there is to know. It's not a great concern, regardless, because it really doesn't have an effect/affect on my direct life. It is tragic that it happened, but it's part of life and it's always shock to most, especially when the person was young.
Well, that's what I see.
To answer your primary question about why people think that way , they go off the track record. It is a shame her life ended so young. And she was a very talented young lady. I hope she is the exception and not the rule
Given the FACT that she has a history of drug abuse I lean towards drugs. Of course I could be wrong and its just a 32 year old heart giving out waaaaaaaaay early.
As far as River Phoenix I don't know what GBH is but that boy died of a speedball, same thing that killed John Belushi!
GBH is a name promoted by the anti drug lobby to mean Great Bodily Harm. It is in fact Gamma Hydroxy Butole or GHB. Dangerous with alchohol as a deep transe like state can result in very faint life signs that make the person appear dead.
GHB taken properly without any alchohol results in psychological insights and the lifting of depression as well as having many other medical applications. the drug was of great interest until the FDA banned it as abusable during the so called "War against drugs." Most of the information about it is politically motivated "Reefer madnesss" type hysteria in my view!
Actually, she had a history of accusations of drug abuse.
Bottom line, whether it's true or not, it sells newspapers and magazines, that's the sole reason I believe. Sad.
Your average 32 year old female does not drop dead of a heart attack that often.
Sure there are conditions such as cardiomyopathy that can be ticking away inside you without your knowledge then oneday you die. The numbers say that the likelihood of drugs is many times higher.
Each scenario is sad for both similar and very different reasons.
Good answer. Although I won't allow myself to imagine more than what they tell us in the news on something like this, I'll admit to kind of thinking, "I won't be surprised if this turns out to be drug-related". Usually, it does, and then I'm not surprised. The Hollywood culture doesn't help either.
There were also accusations she was anorexic, that certainly causes heart attacks. I don't like to jump to conclusions before I hear the facts. Whatever, it was a very sad event.
1. The last few famous people have died with drugs in there system
2. She was Young
3. young and Cardiac Arrest
4. rummers of drug use
It's not a contest...I don't know what caused her heart attack and neither do you. We will find out when we find out.
I cannot help but laugh at you people ! We cannot even have a civilized discussion regarding celebrity deaths . Any grown ups here ?
I was being civilized, I only stated why people are drawing there conclusion.
It has nothing to do with sensitivity. The fact is most of the forums devolve into a pissing contest sooner then later. And this one was already starting the preliminary rounds like the intreraction between uninvited writer and atil. This is one of the reasons people like Pgrundy are disgusted. While I rarely agree with her she is a quality writer. But if it makes you feel better saying I am oversensitive , I am OK with that.
But most of the time lately on the forums I am reminded of my grandkids arguing about whether to watch nickolodeon or the cartoon network.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, the interaction was civil between Uninvited Writer and myself, I don't think it was going to devolve into a pissing contest. These forums are for adults to interact and from what I have seen from the likes of the person you mentioned she has been the one claiming any disagreement with her views as a personal attack. I'm sorry if these things upset you but I do not feel like I was being attacked by uninvited writer and I hope she doesn't feel that I was attacking her.
I don't see any arguing going on here. I think you may be borrowing a "p-ing" contest that hasn't even happened. Someone asked. People answered. A couple of people thought they were giving funny responses. I don't see a problem at all.
Its really sad. She has had a history of drug abuse so it isn't necessarily "jumping to conclusions" to suppose it was drugs. I lost a friend to an overdose at the beginning of summer. It is really difficult to deal with and her family and friends are in my thoughts.
I didn't say a thing about drugs in my post so hope you aren't talking about my post or me
okay PHEW! lol just wanted to make sure...
And I would like to add I like your hubs too !
thank you..i think they are okay not the best but hey I'm trying lol I don't think I have stumbled on yours yet....
I didn't feel like it was an argument and I did not feel attacked. It would not have gone any further, I do not mudsling...
Right or wrong for thinking it, alot of actors do drugs and we find out about it.When there is a history it is hard thing not to jump to.I wish there was no such thing but its out there and ALOT of people do drugs and get hurt or killed by them. I just hope that maybe one kid can see it and never do drugs.
Meanwhile, a whole ton of people died the same day that were not famous. I really don't care how brittany murphy died.
Brittany Murphy DIED??? I am so sad.
I know other people have died too, I don't know who they are, though, so I can't send condolences.

Why does everyone want to stay young?I, for one, am looking forward to aging. It will come in due time, and I wlil be able to experience life and nature's laws in their truest form, instead of fighting them. Why this war against aging?

Everyone hates the "rich" and I do not understand why. I was always under the impression the American dream was to become successful and stay successful? SO why are we always trying to punish the rich?

I was just laying here on my mother's bedroom floor. She turned to one of the TV preachers, and he was talking about how much Jesus loves us, and the sacrifices that He made for us, and how every human is expected to consciously make a decision to follow Him.And I thought about the girls stuck...
