CELEBRITIES around the world have reacted to the death of diva, Whitney Houston.

US police have confirmed the Grammy winning singer and actress was found dead in a Beverly Hills hotel room on Saturday afternoon (US time). She was 48.

The shock news comes as the music industry gathers in Los Angeles for the annual Grammy awards show on Sunday, and a few hours ahead of a traditional pre-Grammys dinner in the hotel where Houston died.

Here's what some of the stars have had to say:

  • "First of all, I want to tell you that I love you all. Second, I would like to say, I love you Whitney. The hardest thing for me to do is to come on this stage." - Houston's ex-husband Bobby Brown, performing a show hours after her death.
