Take a listen to Whitney’s final recording below and check out the trailer for “Sparkle” while you’re there… What do you think about it? Listen now!
Whitney Houston’s family had some drama during the Billboard Music Awards. First, there was a battle over who would accept the Millennium Award on Whitney’s behalf. Sis-in-law Pat Houston thought she should get to accept the award because she wanted the exposure, but she had to settle for standing next to Bobbi Kristina while she accepted her late mother’s award. But that wasn’t all the drama. Pat also got into a heated argument with Whitney’s last boyfriend, Ray J.
Ray J was seated close to the family for the awards show and Pat didn’t like that. She thinks that Ray J was a bad influence on Whitney so she asked the security to have him removed. She ended up yelling and screaming at him, saying that he no longer deserved to be close to the Houston family. The security warned her to not make a scene because it would all be caught on live TV, right before Whitney’s tribute. Eventually, she calmed down and Ray J was allowed to keep his seat. Ray J wasn’t happy about her outburst though. He told a friend that Pat ruined what was a great opportunity to honor the woman that he loved.
One last piece of Houston drama.. 19-year old Bobbi Kristina was videotaped gambling in at the MGM Resort and Casino alongside her brother boyfriend Nick Gordon even though you have to be 21 to legally gamble. Both MGM and the Nevada Gaming Commission are looking into this. If charged, Bobbi Kristina could face up to six months in jail or a $1,000 fine.
UPDATE- According to TMZ, Ray-J was extremely distraught after the awards show. Someone went by his house Monday morning and he seemed disoriented and wasn’t making any sense. He was rushed to the hospital by an ambulance and is still there right now. They are reporting that he was suffering from exhaustion and dehydration.
Did you miss any of the Billboard Music Awards last night? There were a ton of performances, some stellar, some embarrassingly bad.
There was a little backstage drama with Whitney Houston’s fam. Apparently, her sister-in-law, Pat Houston, thought she should accept the Millennium award in Whitney’s honor. She just wanted the exposure to promote her upcoming reality show, but Whit’s daughter, Bobbi Krisitna, rightfully got to accept the award and gave a tearful speech. Jordin Sparks also sang “I Will Always Love You” as a tribute for the late singer.
Justin Bieber delivered a less than stellar performance of his song “Boyfriend“. He’s been slacking in the live performances lately… Time to switch to the Britney Spears’ way of lip synching? I think Biebs live cred is starting to slip. Carly Rae Jepsen completely upstaged him with her live performance of “Call Me Maybe”.
Cee-Lo Green and Goodie Mob did a tribute to MCA of the Beastie Boys that recently passed away. They performed their hit song “Fight For Your Right”in his honor. And it looked like Katy Perry was going to do some Circus du Soleil aerial acrobatics while performing her new song “Wide Awake”, but she just swung from the rafters for a bit.
Bobbi has officially signed on to do a reality show on the Lifetime network. The show is going to focus on the Houston family as they all try to pick up the pieces after Whitney’s death. Whitney’s mother Cissy Houston will also be on the show and she thinks that this exposure will be great for Bobbi’s singing career.
The only person who’s not really on board with this reality show is Bobby Brown. He’s been trying to get Bobbi Kristina to appear on his own reality show because he needed a ratings boost but she refused to come on his show. He’s not excited about having to compete in the reality spotlight with his daughter and his ex in-laws.
One of Michael Jackson’s bodyguards just gave a tell-all interview about some secrets that he knew about the King of Pop. Matt Fiddes was Michael’s bodyguard and confidant for years. He’s the guy that claims he is the father to Michael’s youngest kid Blanket and wants to prove it with a DNA test.
And during his tell-all interview, he claimed that Michael had a secret affair with Whitney Houston. He said that they hooked up back in 1991 and Whitney practically moved into Michael’s home. They only dated for a few weeks but he said that Michael always dreamed of marrying her.
Michael and Whitney met up again nearly a decade later at a concert. Matt claims that they were both a mess and Michael begged Whitney to get off the drugs. They gave each other a long hug and whispered that they loved each other.
Matt also revealed some other things about Michael. He said that Michael was an anorexic drug addict that was covered with needle marks. He called him bald and impotent. He said that Michael became a Natzi in his final years because someone filled his head with anti-Jewish propaganda and they had to ‘reprogram’ his mind so he didn’t think anti-Semitic thoughts.
