She also continued to produce plenty of hits, right up until the Millennium. Arguably one of the factors which attributed to her immense success as a female solo artist was also her incredible style. During her pop days, Whitney often wore bright, exotic make-up which would have most divas nowadays running for the hills. No doubt Whitney will live on in pop culture history like many other artists who died before her time, like her friend Michael Jackson and more recently soul songstress Amy Winehouse.
