      I wouldn’t buy that tired ass girl cd with someone else’s EBT card!!!!.. I would buy Ashanti greatest hit before I give that tired heaux a sale. Her cd will place right between Macy Gray and Dionne Warwick. Now that we got that out the way. Seat your tired ass down and pay homage to the greatest vocalist of our generation Whitney (Nippy) Houston!!!… You ole disrespectful b****!!!!!

        There is just no point in responding to an attention seeker. It’s a shame that some people’s world is so dark they have to resort to this kind of behaviour to get attention from people. Pray for them. Seriously. :)

      YOU YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO RESPECT FOR FOR ICONS BUT YOU WANT TO ACT LIKE THE ARTIST OF TODAY ARE BETTER THAN THE ICONS (EX: Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Janet Jackson)
      SHOW RESPECT, B/C Azealia will never be an ICON

    Not sure if I wanna see it. It’s hard knowing that Whitney’s not gonna be able to see her final curtain call. Just a note, that “I Look to You” song is good but ruined by those heavy sounding drums. They should have had more bells and cymbals to chime in on top of it (a la “I Have Nothing”) to make her then heavier sounding voice sound brighter.

    Babyface should have been on that album!

      Absolutely! I´m so glad I was born in the 80´s and grew up in the 90´s. After 2000 it all went downhill, at least mainstream music

      Yes, but I would say the 90’s birthed great music in almost all genres for the R&B Divas and Doms, to the Grundge music scene to Jazz. There was just some great music during that era. But let’s be fair, many of our parents would say the 60’s, 70’s had better music with stars like – Aretha Franklin, Natalie Cole, Bill Withers, Anita Baker, Stephanie Mills, Chaka Kahn, Ohio Players, Marin Gaye, The OJayz, Pariment Funkadelic, The Temtations, The Spinners, Frankie Beverly and Maze etc.

      **It is what it is folks. I think there are gems and jewels in ever generation. This new CONTROLLED, LIMITED MEDIA & MUSIC scene (360 degree “slave-type” contracts) makes it a tad more challenging for todays artists though! IMO

    I miss my Diva Whitney Houston “The Voice”!

    **I like Jordan Sparks. For some reason I see her following behind JHud as a singer/actress should the movie perform well and the BIASED, NO GOOD, RACIST AMERICAN MEDIA not slam her acting ability!

    @TEAM AZEALIA #KUNTBRIGADE had the nerve to diss THE ICONIC WHITNEY HOUSTON, YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY DELUSIONAL. YOUNG PEOPLE HAVE NO RESPECT FOR LEGENDS/ICONS BUT YET THEY ARE THE ONES WHO SUPPORT LOW CLASS PIECES OF s***.
    Whitney Houston is one of pop music’s best-selling music artists of all-time, with more than 170 million combined albums, singles, and videos sold worldwide.
