No Love For Whitney In Birmingham
After postponing several shows, Whitney Houston finally started the UK and European leg of her world tour in Birmingham last night. Several audience members said Whitney couldn't reach the high notes and was sweating more than Vanilla Gorilla at temple. Um. Do those bitches think it's 1995 again? The Whitney of the new millennium has barfing pores and cracks notes in two! This isn't your memaw's Whitney. The Sun reports:
The singer was even booed by disappointed fans.
One jeered "where are you", after she disappeared from the stage for three songs. The break, after Houston had been performing for barely 20 minutes, featured backing singers giving renditions of For The Love Of You and Queen Of The Night.
And then there was a video montage soundtracked by her recorded version of One Moment In Time. When Whitney returned to the stage she apologised, saying: "I heard you get mad. You're a little pissed off I understand. However I thought you would enjoy the montage. I humble myself and thank you for being so good over the years. Well, I'm here now and have even changed my clothes."
That sounds like a show to me, but I also stand up and throw a bouquet of opening night roses whenever a crackhead on my train rattles on about how her goody bag doesn't work like it used to (true story).
Anyway, here's Whitney sounding like a deaf walrus giving birth to a full grown elephant covered in spikes.
