Whitney Houston RIP
Rip Whitney Houston. I was floored when i heard the new of her death. I was leaving a shopping Mall when a cold chill came over me from the cool air hitting my face. Just then my phone rang and it was sister on the other end telling me there was a special news bulletin and the singer Whitney Houston had died.
Whitney worked her way up in the music world. She started out singing in the church choir and later became a back up singer for Chaka Khan in addition to others.
Whitney Houston at her height in the eighties and nineties was a powerhouse vocalist. She gained fame, numerous awards, and accolades under the direction of her mentor Clive Davis.
She is known for such hits as “I will always Love You” and “The Greatest Love of All”. And who can forget her staring role in the movie The Body Guard and her mega rendition of Dolly Parton’s song”I Will Aways Love You”
Everybody knows of her turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown and her trouble with drugs But instead of dwelling of all the negative that was a part of her being will leave that to rest because I’m sure her trouble life will be plastered all over the media for everyone to look and judge so I will leave it in her own words.
“From the beginning, the camera and I were great friends. It loves me, and I love it”.
“My mother taught me that when you stand in the truth and someone tells a lie about you, don’t fight it.”.
“God gave me a voice to sing with, and when you have that, what other gimmick is there”
“I’ve read about myself and my husband and my family, to the point where they’ve called my parents, they’ve called my brothers, offering money to tell stories. They call friends of mine. I’d just like for them to just … don’t badger us. Don’t scrutinize us. We have children and they have to live, too. It’s not fair.”
MIA Middle finger malfunction
53 year old Madonna upstaged by a middle finger from Sri Lankan star MIA. In light of Madonna’s new album MDNA, performing the Super Bowl was set to be a big push of PR letting the world know she is back as and as Pop risque as ever.
Before Super Bowl Sunday Madonna took a cheap shot at Janet Jackson saying there will be no nipple-gates at her show. She proved to be right. However under-staging nipple-gate was MIA creating her own controversy. MIA was invited to perform along beside Madonna and then flipped a bird and middle finger at all of America. The Super Bowl is viewed by more than 100 million people and is the biggest TV event of the year. She flipped the bird while uttering the words “I don’t give a shit”
“We apologize for the inappropriate gesture that aired during halftime,” NBC spokesman Christopher McCloskey said. “It was a spontaneous gesture that our delay system caught late.”
Seconds after the middle finger of MIA the screen blurred. NBC was attempted to catch the inappropriateness that many viewers did not see in the first place.
All in all MIA’s stunt worked, after the Super Bowl many flocked to You Tube and Wikipedia to see who the heck she is.
I plan on complaining to the Broadcasting Network and sue for emotional damages.
