You won’t find a lot of people arguing the fact that Whitney Houston was one of the most incredible vocalists in several generations. However, one might argue that we know enough about Whitney’s life and tragic death to last last several generations more. But the reality is that in death, as in life, everybody wants a piece of Whitney. So we’re getting another documentary. A trailer for Whitney, the latest documentary about her life and career, has just been released.
According to People, what distinguishes this documentary from the Showtime doc titled Can I Be Me, is that Whitney is the only doc to be officially sanctioned by Whitney’s estate. That probably means Whitney will focus more on Whitney’s talent, and less on her drug use, alleged bisexuality and relationship with Robyn Crawford.
Robyn doesn’t seem to be a presence in Whitney and frankly, I’m surprised Cissy Houston even allowed Bobby Brown to participate at all. I guess he’d be pretty hard to wipe from the record, though I’m sure Cissy has looked into it more than once.
I really don’t need another Whitney biography, but I’ll watch it anyway because any footage of Whitney performing is footage I want to watch. And since we already know all about the ugly in Whitney’s life, it might be a nice change to see her beauty and talent filtered through her mother’s loving gaze.
