Aki blogger is acting up today.

Whitney- Lady?

I remember vividly an article I read a while ago (could be more than 6 years ago) with a headline that posed

Whitney Houston a lady; Mariah Carey a tramp?

I really felt offended that anyone could suggest that Mariah was a tramp but reading on showed Whitney was a lady because she had stuck to her marriage and Mariah had not. It was at the same time Mariah was donning some very skimpy clothes and it did not augur well with many.

Undoubtedly, Mariah was trying to find herself but all she got was criticism from all quarters accusing her even of being a prostitute (forgive me if that is not what tramp means)

Going by the current state Whitney has found herself; it is now questionable just how Lady Whitney was by sticking to her dead marriage with Bobby.

I remember another article where Whitney was accused of trapping Bobby by giving birth to their daughter Bobbie . And we all know how fervently Whitney has defended her family at one point saying that the Browns and Houstons were great together despite reports that Bobby had been whooping her silly. Later on they even proceeded to do a show to fool fans of how strong their marriage was.

Maybe it is “till death do us part” but does the bible not allow persons to divorce each other when a party has been infidel. Infact infidelity is the only ground that is allowed by the bible.

Anyway I woke up singing the song “The Greatest Love of All” and wondered just how someone can sing such a beautiful song and yet go to total waste. I loved her singing,.i still do. Picture this line

“I decided long ago never to walk in anyone’s shadow; if I fail if I succeed; they can never take away my dignity”

What happened to Whitney Houston?


  1. Hi Shiroh, technically one could argue that she's not walking in anyone's shadow.... Guess with great talent comes great pressure? and she caved in somewhere along the way. Wish her and her ilk all the best.

  2. They have a daughter, right? I live in the hope that Whitney will make a comeback. Coz that lady has got talent. I will be back. I had a video to show u but You Tube is down...... when it comes back up, I will show something

  3. Whitney's story is sad.The mama had so much potential and let drugs and a bad husband take her down!If she had dumped him she would still be a star.I dont doubt that Bobby Brown slept with other women when they were together!
    I think the article said tramp and not trump.A tramp is a woman with loose morals.
    BTW: Ebu put together a dossier about that school in word with pics to go with it.School is back in session!So we can do some good charity work now!

  4. as acolyte said, her story is said. she went after Bobby trying to show how street/ghetto she was and not a rich superstar's daughter from the nice side of town - and got caught trapped in a downward spiral that's taken her her mind and her money

  5. What a coincidence you brought up Whitney. Just last week I bought her greatest hits CD which has like over 30 songs. I love her voice! Sadly, I don't think she herself is even aware of how far down the spiral she has sunk. Everybody else sees it, but she is oblivious. What can really save her now? Anyway, thank you for the music Whitney!

  6. I agree. Her Greatest Hits CD is a must have.
    One and I do mean ONE of my fav songs EVER is "If you say" the one she sang with Jermaine.

    Anyway, here is the clip I was looking for.



  7. What happened to whitney is a loss to all music lover. But is a lesson to all people, "you should not pick up nasty habits to impress your partner" and when the whooping starts it time to seek help or to ruuuuunn!

  8. Whitney messed up,and she had so much talent....what a waste:-(

    I still don't elewa how a woman stays with a man who batters her! eishhhhh self esteem/love of thyself ilienda wapi? A guy chapaz u once,what makes you think he will never do it again??? get up and go, go, go!!!

  9. I still listen to Whitney and maintain that they just don't make them like they used to. In spite of her troubles, she was one person who - whatever she did, she did with excellence - all her songs, all her star roles in movies ... I don't really concentrate on what the media tries to make us believe - how come they don't tell us about all the good stuff? I'm sure she's a winner who simply took a few missteps along the way.
