    aaaaaaaaaaaaand, just as a reminder as to what Whitney Houston has achieved, and why the world still cares, and to put something positive instead of the largely negative press she's received over the past few years (though recently it's all been positive again, post-rehab).

    here is a compilation of records that Whitney has held throughout her career. some of them maybe have been broken since she achieved them, but she still did.

    First Female Artist to have 3 albums sell over 9 million copies

    Only Artist to have 'The Star Spangled Banner' Certified Platinum.

    Only Artist to have a song on UK Year End Singles Charts for 2 consecutive years. (I Will Always Love You Ranked #1 in 1992 and #9 in 1993)

    that is absolutely hysterical! i can only imagine what the Whitney circa 2000-2006 would've done in response. needless to say, it wouldn't have been pretty. lol. watching her back then, really for the first 10-15 years of her career, was a master class in proper p.r. she always handled herself so well in interviews and any public event. i suspect she'll get back to that, now that she's clean and sans Bobby.

    she was at NOBU in New York today with Clive Davis. here are some pics and commentary courtesy of Perez Hilton:

    It’s Whitney, Bitch!

    Forget about Britney!
    The comeback we’re really looking forward to is Whitney Houston’s!
    And, under the guidance of Clive Davis, the drug-free diva has a much better chance at massive success than Spears, who is her own captain in a big boat lost at sea.
    On Monday, a healthy and radiant Houston was spotted with the music mogul in NYC.
    Nice to see her taking care of herself and her career!
    Hit a homerun, Whitney. People are rooting for you. Don’t waste their goodwill!!!

    The blue, the grey, the black--they match! Whitney looks great, and, as usual, I'm digging Clive's suits. Who's his tailor?

    I hope she shows everybody what she's got. To me, she and Mariah Carrey have THE best voices in the business - not Christina, not Jessica or WHOEVER.

    And of course, with a comeback usually comes a fashion comeback. I'm excited.

    SO completely wonderful to see her out and about looking absolutely gorgeous and radiant again! and most especially it's great to see Whitney interacting with people whom she used to associate with when she was in her prime heyday --- ie Costner, Ali, etc ---, this, to me, is most indicative of her rehabilitation. she is NOT shamed by her past, but rather is PROUD that she had the strength to pull through and can now stand on the brighter side of the mountain.

    g'on and get it, Whit! you're the Greatest DIVA of All! :flower:

    wow. i'm not sure what the hell is going on ... but we've got a third set of Whitney photos from this weekend. she must be getting ready to start promoting this upcoming album... i don't know, but she never makes public appearances like this. anyway, she's at the boxing fight last night in Las Vegas... she looks gorgeous!

    (*she looks a bit preggers in this pic... must be the angle and the dress*)
