Whitney was so undeniably talented. None of the pop singers today could sing the National Anthem like she did. No contest. And while it's tempting to go back and look at her Bobbi Brown years, it's in poor taste. She seemed so sweet, but powerless against so many of the creeps (cough, Serge Gainsbourg). It is fair to say, "Whitney, I'm so sorry you lost the boyfriend lottery."

Falling in love is bittersweet.
