Surprised at the endless fawning over the recent passing of notable celebrities? Notwithstanding their star status, should one be surprised that they die? Carrie Fisher at age 60 and George Michael at 53. British pop star Michael reportedly died of heart failure. His acknowledged drug abuse may have led to his ultimate demise. Fisher, aka, Princess Leia, of “Star Wars, “ fame had a history of cocaine use, which she claimed, “made her feel normal,” may have contributed to her massive heart attack on a plane. Fisher’s lineage of “Hollywood royalty,” offspring of 1950’s crooner Eddy Fisher, and starlet Debbie Reynolds, who passed a day later at 84, claiming she “wanted to be with Carrie.” That may not be a safe place.
