‘What have you done for me lately?’ takes on new meaning after reports have surfaced that Grammy-winning pop icon Janet Jackson has been snubbed, yet again, from induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

With a four decade career that boasts over 100 million records sold and countless industry awards lining her shelves, Jackson reigns supreme as the second most decorated female artist of all time (second only to Whitney Houston -who was also shut out).  Apparently her efforts, which span across music and film, have yet to be enough to impress the academy who votes and helps decide who will be inducted into the prestigious institution.

Much ado has been made about Lifetime‘s upcoming Whitney Houston biopic.

From song clearances, to starring actors, to its very existence; the Angela Bassett production hasn’t been short on controversy.

The latest round of debate ignited this week when it was announced that Deborah Cox will be voicing ‘The Voice’ in the made-for-TV movie. Legalities surrounding copyright means it won’t be possible to use Houston’s hits in their original form. Hence, Cox – a powerhouse in her own right – is providing “vocal tracks” for lead Yaya DaCosta to “perform” to.

Naturally, the news has many eager to hear whether Cox can do justice to Whitney’s iconic catalogue. And it seems folk won’t have to wait too long to find out.

Lifetime‘s biopic on the late, great Whitney Houston hasn’t even hit screens yet and is already causing quite the scene.

Indeed, debate has greeted almost every morsel of news revealed about the movie; from it being a cable production instead of a big screen offering, to its lead stars, public response has been potently polarized.

The latest facet of the Angela Bassett directed telepic to come into question is the licensing of Houston’s music.

According to E!, with legalities surrounding the use of Whitney’s iconic song catalogue still being hashed out, original versions of the tracks will not feature. Instead, Yaya DaCosta - who has been cast as Houston – will “lip-synch” to re-recorded takes on the songs performed by none other than Deborah Cox.
