Songwriter Diane Warren, who worked on seven songs with Whitney Houston, expressed Sunday a deep sense of sadness at the pop icon's loss, as well as a feeling of shock and a bit of discomfort about the way the singer's death is being handled less that 24 hours after the fact.
"I think people are all feeling really weird," said Warren. "Even at Clive's party last night, Alicia Keys was really good, but sorry, I didn't want to see Pit Bull jumping around the stage."
