Yesterday was Whitney Houston’s birthday and I celebrated by giving a pitchy performance of So Emotional at karaoke. R&B singer and longtime Brandy rival, Monica, commemorated the day with a sweet post on Instagram. R&B singer and longtime Monica rival, Brandy, also commemorated the day with a heartfelt Instagram post.
But then things got weird.
Brandy’s post is below, and it seems that Brandy is very territorial about Whitney Houston.
Lord have mercy on my soul!!! Happy Born Day Whitney. You live on in me… I can feel your Spirit inside of me and all around me. My angel, my friend, my fairy God Mother. I love you forever… thank you for trusting me with the torch!!! I remember every moment with you and I and I will cherish these miraculous moments forever and ever! I love you…. 8/9-2/11 #WhitneyHouston #offwiththecomments already made headlines
Here I thought Nippy belonged to all of us, but according to Brandy, only Brandy is allowed to love Whitney. Not only that, according to Brandy, Brandy is the second coming of Whitney, because that’s what Whitney whispered to her on her deathbed, never mind that Whitney died alone in a hotel bathtub. By acknowledging Whitney, Monica inadvertently opened up a can of crazy and re-reignited the long standing feud between her and Brandy.
Now, somewhere along the way the feud between Brandy and Monica (that was allegedly squashed when they both took home a Grammy for their 90s classic “The Boy Is Mine”) was reborn via perceived pettiness a few months back on social media. Cool heads prevailed and everyone allegedly moved on.
Or so we thought.
Yet, when word got out Monica too showed loved to Ms. Houston, Brandy wanted to make sure people knew she wasn’t concerned with “oh girl” and whatever she posted.
Oh yes, Brandy #tooktotwitter! to drag Monica for…, for…, well I’m not really sure what for. Brandy has clearly lost her damn mind. (via Vibe)
Brandy’s scree pissed off a lot of Monica’s fans, who criticized Brandy on IG and Twitter for being so extra about Whitney. So then Brandy got mad at Monica, because her fans were doing the most. Us Weekly reports:
Brandy then slammed fans who attacked her on Instagram, and seemingly blamed Monica for the hate she’s been receiving.
“Monica needs to really check her evil ass fans,” the “I Wanna Be Down” songstress wrote in the comments. “It’s so much stuff I can post about hateful things they say to me … but I will never have time for that. Always thinking something is about her. It’s not!!!! Me and Whitney have nothing to do with anyone but the two of us … we made history and I cared more about being with her than I did with anything else.”
This makes me wonder, does Brandy have an actual mommy? She is clearly obsessed with Whitney to a frightening degree. Monica on the other hand, has been silent on the whole mess and seems to be happy letting Brandy spin herself up into a tornado of insecurity and delusion. If Monica is engaged in this alleged feud at all, her shady and silent method seems to be working, because Brandy is clearly losing her shit. According to Us Weekly she also said:
I’m not to be F–ked with today! If this was rap or hip hop you would be praised for speaking your mind but since it’s rnb you have to take the so called high road … well because I can rap just look at this as my high road.”
This makes we wonder, does Brandy have and actual clue as to what words mean? Brandy, your high road is underwater. Whitney Houston, the epitome of R&B, was never afraid of speaking her mind. And though she put us through a lot, she never once tried to rap. I doubt she’d be on board with all this pettiness. Whitney, if you can hear me up there, come get your girl. She trippin’.
