Whitney Looking Good...

[Chicago Sun Times Comment]

BY BILL ZWECKER SUN-TIMES COLUMNIST

HEALTHY-LOOKING HOUSTON: I didn't give her a blood test and didn't even chat with her, but Whitney Houston sure looked terrific when I spied her exiting the beach restaurant of the Carlton Hotel in Cannes on the French Riviera the other day. The diva, joined by two of the world's largest bodyguards and a woman friend, followed her husband, Bobby Brown, out of the chic cafe. The superstar was obviously in a happy mood, appeared clear-eyed and healthy -- and it made me smile seeing her look like the beautiful Whitney from a decade ago.

Let's hope that looks in this case were not deceiving.

Dionne's 40 Duets...

[Billboard Report]

Veteran singer Dionne Warwick has announced that her so-called "Farewell Tour" of Britain would not be her last. The artist also said she would shortly release an album of 40 duets to celebrate her four decades in music, with contributions from George Benson, the late Luther Vandross and her niece, Whitney Houston.

Warwick told the audience during her performance last Saturday (Sept. 3) at London's Hackney Empire that she would return on tour, and hinted that her timetable was linked to recent run-ins with the U.S. authorities; Warwick was arrested at Miami airport in 2002 for possession of marijuana.

Warwick's career actually began in 1962, with "Don't Make Me Over," the first of many songs written for her by Burt Bacharach and Hal David.

 

Brown In Court Again...

Reality TV star Bobby Brown was back in court due to being frequently delinquent in making child support payments.  A warrant for Brown's arrest was issued in June when he failed to appear at a pre-arranged court date.  Read the Boston Channel report: Bobby Brown Appears In Court Again.

Vibe...

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown are interviewed in this month's Vibe.  The interview was taken in August 2004 to coincide with wrapping filming of 'Being Bobby Brown'.  The delays in finding a television network to show the series would likely have resulted in the delayed publication of this interview.

Whilst principally about Brown, the interview does focus on Whitney Houston and discusses her state of mind at the time.  It also features a poignant telling of Whitney playing a piano in a hotel lobby, concluding with singing along to the tune of 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.'
