Hello guys and dolls. Its time. Get your cups out because I am serving some hot tea.
Whitney Houston’s funeral inspired folks all over the world to tune into church on a Saturday.
The funeral was held at New Hope Baptist Church in Newark, NJ which was the church Whitney grew up in.
The funeral, as one speaker said, “had more stars than the Grammys”. Stars such as Mariah Carey, Oprah, Brandy, Monica and many more showed up to pay their respect to Whitney.
Tyler Perry, Kevin Costner, BeBe Winans and the Eulogist Bishop Marvin Winans gave riveting speeches about the fallen star. Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, The Winans, Kim Burrell, Donnie McClurkin, and R. Kelly performed songs dedicated to Whitney.
Aretha Franklin was supposed to sing but was said to be suffering from leg spasms. However, the singer performed at her sold out concert in New York Saturday night.
Now Aretha, you could have pulled a Maya Angelou and just sat down.
Bobby Brown caused a little stir by leaving the funeral early. He released a statement shortly after the funeral.
“My children and I were invited to the funeral of my ex-wife Whitney Houston. We were seated by security and then subsequently asked to move on three separate occasions. I fail to understand why security treated my family this way and continue to ask us and no one else to move,” Brown said.
Well the Houston’s family lawyer has come to set the record straight.
Lawyer Mark G. Trigg called into “The Frank and Wanda Show” on V-103 in Atlanta to give the on-air personality the true tea.
According to Triggs, Brown was supposed to sit in the first three rows with Houston’s family and not his children, who were not by Whitney. Brown’s children were told that they must sit close to the back with their uncle.
“Security “discretely” asked the children to sit with their uncle,” Trigg told Frank and Wanda.
That’s not all. It seems Bobbi Kris didn’t even want her Dad to talk to her.
Trigg said Brown also had agreed not to try to speak with Bobbi Kris unless she initiated contact first. Well Bobby tried anyway and security stepped in hopes that Bobbi Kris would intervene on the Brown’s family behalf.
The funeral went off without a glitch. It was about Whitney and it remained that way.
Chris Brown and Rihanna sent twitter into frenzy Monday with the releases of two remixes featuring both artists.
On her birthday Rihanna released the full length remix to her song “Cake” featuring Brown.
In all seriousness the song basically is about them reminiscing and missing their bump and grind sessions.
Don’t believe me? Here is lyrical proof: Breezy sings, “Girl, I wanna f— you right now. Been a long time, I’ve been missing your body.”
Then Rih Rih raps back “Remember how you did it? Remember how you fit it?”
Breezy released a remix of his new song “Turn up the music” featuring Rih Rih. The song is pretty PG.
I wonder how Breezy’s girlfriend Kamikaze feels about this.
Oh, her name is Karrueche; well this proves how irrelevant she is because I forgot Breezy had a girlfriend.
