Britney Attends Clive Davis' Pre-Grammy Party, Reflects On Whitney

Held at the Beverly Hills Hilton, Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy party was a solemn one last night after the news broke that legendary singer Whitney Houston had died just hours before the soiree, where she was expected to attend. Whitney was only 48 years old, and in 2009, she was cited by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most-awarded female act of all time — with a total of over 400 awards (6 of which were Grammys) spanning the life of her career.

Britney has always cited Whitney Houston as one of her longtime musical inspirations and told Harper's Bazaar in 2011, "I've loved [Whitney] since I was a kid." Brit also quotes "I Will Always Love You" as her favorite track by the talented songstress.
