whitney houston is the first diva i fell in love with.
i thought she was so beautiful.
she was a staple in my home as i grew up.
her second album,
being the work that introduced me to her.
every time i hear the songs from that epic-ness,
i always think back to my mother playing it while she cleaned on a saturday.
she was a HUGE whitney fan.
she wore that album out,
but it never got old.
it got better each time i heard it.
“the bodyguard” soundtrack was next after that.
during my dnd retreat,
i stumbled upon her “whitney” documentary.
i ended up watching it and…
…it truly broke my heart.
i can go as far as to say that her family,
and even “us” ruined her.
the alleged drug use in her teen years
her mother’s jealousy
alleged molestation from a female relative
getting booed for singing “white music” at soul train
meeting bobby brown
robyn being phased out her life
her father suing her
the drug use getting out of control
so much more drama
… i don’t think whitney had a chance.
she went from being “the voice” to being “the joke” before her death.
as i watched,
i saw all the places she went wrong.
her brothers should never have given her drugs at such a young age.
i wish she woulda stayed with robyn,
i think that was the only one who she could trust.
she’s the only one who hasn’t sold her out either.
even though whitney’s family paints her as this lesbionic devil.
even that club owner,
she allegedly met through denzel washington,
would have been a good choice.
bobby brown was her addiction.
don’t even get me started on bobbi kristina.
she legit stood no chance of survival within that world.
i’d love to read your thoughts on it so i’m gonna post it here:
and if you want more detailed bts,
that really chronicles her drug use and bobby’s destruction:
i really want the foxhole to check them out.
lowkey: when you watch,
you can see the light from her spirit dim up until the end.
