... is all the names of people whose lives were cut short from hard-core drugs.
And keep in mind, especially A-listers, they like to down play that part unless it's brutally obvious, like with Prince. When first responders try to kick down the door, and an avalanche of used needles and empty heroine bottles is barricading the door shut... well... then that's going be a part of the press release. I know, Prince died of opioids... same family, different dealer.
Sad but true, but even Carrie Fisher was addicted to cocaine right up until the end. Do 60-year-olds have heart attacks? Sure, some, but cocaine addiction in her case couldn't have been helpful. She's gone, so why soil her name in the press. I get that.
George Michael, heroine. Died peacefully in his sleep the articles say, yes, overdosing on heroine. If Hugh Hefner were to die in the night, we'd all buy the whole "peacefully in his sleep" crap, but not a 53-year-old for shit sake. If a 53 year old dies in bed in the middle of the night, he's either been caught by a jealous husband, clutching at his own chest in agony, coughing up blood, or blitzed out of his fucking mind... but he's not peacefully dying in his sleep.
So at the same time, great opportunity to say, don't mess with hard drugs, people. You die. Heroine, cocaine, Meth. Fuck that!
Even Nancy Regan! Died freebasing crack cocaine while snap-chatting pictures of her cooch. Naw. On that one she was just old as dirt. So don't do dirt either. It's also bad for you, too.
