What a voice! I often wonder why people end up dying right at the moment they're about to take off and get to the big leagues. She was on her way and now she's gone. RIP.

Do you ever wonder why some overweight people die early and some people stay fat until old age? It's because heredity plays a bigger part in people's health than a lot of us would like to believe. Anon 1:13 could be skinny as hell and get diagnosed with cancer tomorrow--all while making death predictions for others. Just live your life as you see fit and have fun doing it.

It could have been prevented. However, Rest in Power.

I get looked at all stupid because I don’t eat fried chicken and everything else that causes hypertension. Skinny people who eat fried foods aren’t exempt either. Lizzo is on her way if she doesn’t get it under control. Big Pun died from not taking care of his body. People always think it won’t be them particularly her because she moves around enough to get tired and then relax. It’s no joke. Hypertension is a silent killer. I make sure to check mine daily.
