People are pissed at iTunes

Sony Music has come under fire after it increased the price of a Whitney Houston album on Apple's iTunes Store hours after the singer was found dead.
The music giant is understood to have lifted the wholesale price of Houston's greatest hits album, The Ultimate Collection, at about 4am California time on Sunday. This meant that the iTunes retail price of the album automatically increased from £4.99 to £7.99.
Houston's The Ultimate Collection, originally released in 1997, was the second top-selling album on iTunes on Monday morning. Apple returned the album to its original price late on Sunday.

What the fuck, people?
When somebody dies, the price of their goods automatically go up. An artist dies, the prices of their paintings shoot through the roof. Fact of life (or death, depending how you look at it), plain and simple, deal with it.
Besides, if you liked her music so much, why didn't you already have the fucking album? Quit bitching and go buy some ammo instead.
