man...i have to say, i was never a fan, as her music was just not my thing, but in her prime, her voice, i have to say, was undeniably rather incredible. Obivously the ravages of addiction have destroyed it, and i found this concert footage from a couple of days ago in Brisbane, to be rather sad. YouTube - Whitney Houston - I will always love you live in Brisbane 2010 how can anyone be so "past it", and out there on stage and just not see it? Obviously she was a talented singer who is now out there to try and rekindle some of the magic, but with her primary draw destroyed (her voice), can she even see that what she is doing is embarassing to her? does someone not tell her? i understand she may need the money, or maybe just misses the attention, but a combination of public humiliation as well as total dissatisfaction by her paying fans and customers, should really cause her to consider bowing out with some grace and what little dignity she still has intact. It is really kind of sad, when a "diva" has lost what was the reason for that status in the first place...even more so, because there are still other, older women who are still belting them out perfectly, like Tina Turner did in her comeback and for ages since....or Streisand (even if she annoys me) and other women. what do you say? anyone a fan of hers and find it painful or sad etc.
