Billie Holiday, Judy GarlandJanis Joplin,  Jim Morrison, Elvis Presley, Margaux Hemingway*, Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse, Whitney HoustonOh, how the mighty have fallen. Oh, ye fair ones!

If you count lesser luminaries, or other genres of entertainment (aside from singers), the trend never went away.
