Scissor Sisters...

[From The Mirror]

They say imitation's the sincerest form of of flattery but we're not sure what Whitney Houston would make of her tribute from Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears.

The singer, whose band's debut album has sold 1.5 million copies in the UK alone, reveals: "In my teens I didn't know what I wanted to do with myself, so I did everything. For my high school gong show I sported a wig and belted out 'I Will Always Love You', calling myself 'Whip-Me Houston'. I won a broken down motorcycle."
