Death as mass entertainment: are you up for it? Someone has decided that Whitney Houston, who passed away last Saturday in a hotel in Beverly Hills (thanks to a lethal combination of alcohol and different kinds of pills), deserves a mass goodbye. Though the family expressed their wish to keep the funeral private and intimate, anyone who wants to do so will be able to see it live on the Internet. According to The Associated Press, the funeral - this Saturday, 18th February in the New Hope Baptist church in Newark, New Jersey - will be broadcast live on AP Live on Livestream. The ceremony will start at 5pm CET.
