Whitney Houston is about as exciting as a warm shade of yellow.

young Whitney Houston meets Serge Gainsbourg (some Wilmotters might know him who he was) on a French Tv Show.The classy junkie stinkie unshaved greasy haired French lover comments (in English) : "I say (said?) I want to F*** her" (1'20'').Rencontre Whitney Houston et Serge GainsbourgAnd, he puts his hands on her, her face, her hair.what a shame ....

She was a life-support system for vocal chords, and a sloppy irresponsible one.You have watched plenty of girls on the path to wrecking their lives. You have even tried to save some of them, it seems, but you know what the success rate is with that.Little choices every day - to drink or not to drink, to smoke crack or shoot up or not to smoke crack or shoot up, and which guy do you take home at the end of the night.That last one can be the deciding factor.It was her choice, but it rests on BB for the domestic violence and endlessly stirring the tar pit of addiction.
