Crack Is Whack, Whitney's Back

I just finished watching the American Music Awards and was particularly interested in seeing Whitney Houston. It was her first television performance in five years.

If you've forgotten or never knew what happened to Whitney, it can be summed up briefly with just one word: Drugs. She and her husband, Bobby Brown, allegedly, had quite a fondness for Crack. In fact, in one of her interviews, she was quoted as saying, "Crack is whack", whatever that means.

When she lived in Atlanta, the local radio stations would do reports on Whitney sightings around town. These reports weren't very flattering. Usually, it involved Whitney in her house slippers, seemingly high, and locked out of her gated community hissing and cursing at the amused onlookers.

Happily, with tonight's performance, it seems like Whitney is back! I sat through three hours of performances and only one artist sent shivers down my spine and gave me goosebumps, and that was Whitney Houston.

Congratulations Whitney! We're glad you sacked and whacked the Crack out of your life, and with this performance, you indeed, are back.

Whitney looked and sounded great last night.

That was the only performance I saw from an artist I recognized. She did great and she looks fantastic. I saw her on Today or GMA, not sure which a month or so ago and she looked great there too. I hope she has the monkey off her back, she is such a talent.

yes through it all she still has it.

She has still got it. That gorgeous powerful voice is still there and she looked fantastic. That was the highlight of the evening.

Sorry I missed the awards, but I am happy to see Whitney come off the Crack~!! She was going downhill at locomotive speed!

I think it's high time people stopped sugar-coating things. Whitney may be back, but her voice is not.

Her manager, Clive Davis, shouldn't have put her back into the spotlight knowing she can't sing like before.

Money talks and sense walks?
