Bonnie Pointer was arrested this morning and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance. She made bail about three hours after being arrested. Pointer is 61 years old. See, here is the thing. When you are a young singer or musician, the drug thing seems glamorous and cool, but if you are still having to use at 61, you have some serious issues. The Pointer sisters were huge. When MTV first started, The Pointer Sisters were on there as much as Duran Duran. Then they kind of faded away and make money singing at casinos. Apparently enough to feed their drug habits.
