Macbeth and Whitney Houston tragic fall

Many people for once in their life has been at the top and soon started to slowly move down leading to a tragic flaw not everyone had that happy ending for example; Whitney Houston was a good leader to everyone just like Macbeth. They both had a good feel for being a great role model for others, people looked up to them and honored them both. Whitney had a great talent getting through to people by singing and being a great actress. Macbeth on the other hand kept his people protected and well kept, but there was a big down fall in their life, such as making the same mistakes over and over again just to cover up something that could not be covered up. They both knew that they were making mistakes and the only way to get by, keep that mistake hidden and keep calm was to keep doing the same things over and over again. The he killing became a big down fall for Macbeth and the drugs became a big shut down for Whitney. They both had a successful career, a bad habit of substance and they both died.
Whitney Houston was a great singer. She inspired many people with her talent and motivation as well as Macbeth being a good role model to his people. Whitney Houston career was going great. She was discovered by a photo shooter because of her beauty, however he wanted to make her a teenage model. “one of the first African American women to appear on the cover of seventeen magazine.” She also started acting in 1992. Staring in the movie. “ The Bodyguard”. She also let out a new single hit, making a great song “I will always love you”. She continued with her music because it was getting her attention more just as Macbeth when he meets the three witches that discovered his future. The witches told him “all hail, Macbeth! Hail to thee, thane of Cawdor” (act 1, scene 3, line 49). They also told him that “all hail, Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter!” (act 1, scene 3, line 50).

Lady Macbeth got into Macbeth’s ear. So that he could kill a dear friend of his (Duncan) just to be next in line to be king. His first kill became a little dose of drug to him. Whitney Houston life started to bring trouble when she married R&B singer Bobby Brown. Their marriage was wonderful at the beginning they were all about love they both started using drugs and abusing it. Bobby Brown stated that “I did not get high before I met Whitney, on narcotics. No I smoked weed, I dranked beer, but no I wasn’t the one that got Whitney on drugs at all”, but in Macbeth situation. Macbeth was not a killer until Lady Macbeth got on his back about being king. Macbeth continued to act as if nothing has happened with him so he kept his killing a secret in despite of not getting over throne and Whitney Houston kept doing drugs because she was addicted.
Macbeth situation led to another he had to think about killing Duncan because Duncan is his friend and that would be awful…
