Professional troll Kanye West has found an even more effective way to enrage black people (nay, all sane people) than saying slavery was a choice. According to Entertainment Weekly, Kanye’s disrespecting Whitney Houston by using an old tabloid picture of her drug-strewn mess of a bathroom taken without her knowledge as album cover art for Pusha T. If ghosts are real, Nippy’s coming for you and she’s bringing Nat Turner and Harriet Tubman with her to Fuck. Your. Shit. Up!
Clips and tidbits from the new Whitney Houston documentary have been leaking left and right leading up to its Thursday premiere at Cannes. While nothing gives me the jollies quite like Whit saying Paula Abdul “ain’t shit,” the latest round is nothing but sads, because it says a driving factor of Whitney’s problem was sexual abuse she endured early in life from Dee Dee Warwick, the sister of Dionne Warwick.

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.
Lorde’s Instagram Story Featuring A Bathtub And A Whitney Houston Reference Went Over About As Well As You’d Imagine
Lorde is in hot water (sorry not sorry) with Whitney Houston fans for posting an Instagram story featuring a luxurious bathtub with the caption “And iiii will always love you.” And now she should probably just go ahead and get into a witness protection program, or something, because she’ll never live it down. Brandy probably has a hit out on her.
Despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary (easy access to drugs, extensive understanding of butt anatomy, prescription spectacles), Bobby Brown is not a medical doctor. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know a thing or two about science. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, Bobby said that he knows what really killed Whitney Houston and it wasn’t drugs. Bobby believes Whitney died from a broken heart.
Not Everyone Enjoyed Christina Aguilera’s Karaoke Tribute To “The Bodyguard” At The American Music Awards
Any doubt that the American Music Awards are the last-minute high school project version of the Grammys was removed last night when Christina Aguilera took to the stage for a tribute to the 25th anniversary of the soundtrack to The Bodyguard. We know it wasn’t a tribute to Whitney Houston, because at no point during Christina’s “most-confident bridesmaid at the bachelorette karaoke party” performance did anyone report seeing a disrespected ghost scream “Hell to the NO” while attempting to yank the mic plug from a power outlet backstage.
