Whitney Houston was found face down in the tub....and it sounds like there was cocaine residue
WHITNEY HOUSTON'S full autopsy report was released yesterday. Here's what we've learned from it . . .First of all, Whitney was found FACE DOWN in the tub by her personal assistant, who had just returned from running some errands. It was the assistant who suggested Whitney take a bath, because she was complaining of a sore throat. It sounds like there was indeed evidence of cocaine in the room. The report says there was, quote, "a small spoon with a white crystal like substance in it and a rolled up piece of white paper" on the bathroom counter.
And in a bathroom drawer, investigators also found, quote, "remnants of a white powdery substance and a portable mirror on a base . . . and more remnants of a white powdery substance" on the bottom of that base. Officials also found, quote, "a plethora of prescription medication bottles, prescribed to [Whitney], multiple blister packs and a loose tablet." When she was found, Whitney had a bloody nose . . . and the autopsy revealed, quote, "perforation of posterior nasal septum." (--Which we can reasonably assume was from cocaine use.)
The report states, quote, "[Whitney] possibly overdosed on a narcotic substance, prescription medications, over the counter medications and alcohol."
Here's something else Whitney had: BREAST IMPLANTS. The size was 230cc. It's not clear how big they were in, like, bra size terms. As we heard last month, Whitney's official cause of death was DROWNING . . . but heart disease and cocaine use were listed as contributing factors.

A teacher's aide in
She posted a picture last year on her private page from her home computer of a co-worker wearing pants around the ankles and a pair of shoes. A parent who is friends with the elementary school teacher saw the pic and told school officials. The district insisted that they look at her private Facebook page and she refused. They put her on paid administrative leave, then they suspended her and stopped paying her. There's a new law being pushed that would make it illegal for employers to require employees to turn over their social networking account info. [DailyMailUK]

Jack White released a limited-edition single by helium balloon from his Third Man Records label headquarters in
(Third Man Records)
The track is called "Freedom at 21". The song is from White's upcoming debut solo album, "Blunderbuss," which drops April 21st. Jack and his pals at Third Man filled 1,000 blue balloons approximately two feet in diameter with helium, attached flexi-discs and released them into the sky. Jack described the stunt as "an experiment exploring nontraditional forms of record distribution and a way to get records in the hands of people who don't visit record shops." The balloons were made of biodegradable latex and were attached to the singles with natural twine, so things were very eco-friendly. [LAtimes]
