Music icon Dionne Warwick had the perfect comeback about news circulating that she was dead as she debunked it on her social media page.


Dionne Warwick has shared her thoughts on the recent media misconception that surfaced, insinuating that she was dead. The star's disclaimer came in the form of a video on Twitter.

The star started on a light note, stating that this was the second hoax pulled about her supposed death, adding that she thought it was not "very nice." She sounded it again that she did not die.

Warwick, 80, chose a sarcastic tone as she chipped in a witty statement against the negativity. She ended her address on a bubbly note, asking fans not to worry because she was doing well.


The "That's What Friends Are For" crooner's video came a few days after a YouTube video surfaced insinuating that she passed on. Known for her Twitter bants, she reacted in a hilarious manner. She quoted the tweet as she exclaimed, "Oh No!," sending many fans reeling with laughter.

Soon, her jazzy voice took her up the singing echelon with several hit tracks and award-winning sounds. 


This is not the first time Warwick showed her wit to match Twitter's bants. The award-winning singer once took jabs at Chance the Rapper and The Weeknd for their music names, and the pair recognized the excellent humor, stating that they were honored to be recognized by her. 

Besides her social media activities, the five-time Grammy winner has veered into inspiring children about their dreams. She once released a picture book targeted at helping kids stay inspired with their goals.


Warwick outlined that it was essential to let the younger generation know that their dreams are valid and achievable. She shared that her grandfather bolstered hers.

The veteran entertainer was born in New Orleans into a musical family. Her sisters, Dee Dee and Cissy, and late niece, Whitney Houston, were all into music. 

Warwick defined her career from childhood, where she sang in church. Soon, her jazzy voice took her up the singing echelon with several hit tracks and award-winning sounds.
