Whitney Houston's publicist today confirmed that much of the publicity/TV marketing information that originated in the BMG book was inaccurate information. Basically, the record company publishes details of the campaign way in advance to music retailers to let them know what is coming up. This is standard practise for all labels.
In Whitney's case, the details of the Greatest Hits contained the tracklisting for the album as well as details on how Arista would be marketing the project. The tracklisting is correct.
The print media information is incorrect. This was a wish list at the time of going to print. Whitney is not scheduled to have cover stories for Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, Parade or In Style and the same applies to most of the other print media listed. Read: Unconfirmed.
As for stories about Whitney performing her TV special on the grounds of her home, it's been confirmed that this was being considered and although not ruled out, it seems unlikely.
As for the confusion surrounding the next European single, BMG International have said that a final decision about the next single has not been made.
The title of the album and it's final artwork is being decided by Whitney at the moment. Hopefully we will hear something more about this soon.
