At times dabbing her eyes with a tissue during the court session, Houston testified that she did not require spousal or child support and that Bobbi Kristina could not depend on her father.
“He’s unreliable,” Houston said of Brown, according to the Associated Press. “If he says he’s going to come, sometimes he does. Usually he doesn’t.”
Houston declined to comment to reporters after the hearing. Attorney Ram Cogan, representing Brown (who did not attend the hearing), said he will file a petition on behalf of his client to overturn the judge’s decision.
Houston filed for legal separation from Brown on Sept. 8, and then filed for divorce in mid-October.
On Dec. 28, she requested a default judgment to fast-track the dissolution of the marriage.
Since their separation, Houston has been recording a new album with J Records president Clive Davis in Los Angeles.
Whitney ain’t playing. She’s making moves to sort out her life, yet there’s no sign of Bobby doing the same; she deserves Bobbi-Kristina. So much for the friendly relationship Bobby claimed he and Whitney were maintaining.
In the five years since R. Kelly was slapped with child porn charges, the R&B superstar has no court date in sight and continues to drop hits. Vibe investigates.

Five years?! Damn, time goes fast. The Michael Jackson trial started and ended and R. Kelly still hasn’t even been tried. I don’t think he ever will. Only he knows if he really did it; and by ‘it’ I mean whether he knew the girls he slept with were underage, because we all know he slept with them. This should be an interesting read…
———————————–Johnta Austin – Video (ft. Unk)
This new track from talented singer/songwriter Johnta Austin isn’t really doing it for me; it’s not bad, it’s just not that good either. Considering this is the man who played a major part in the career-reviving ‘Emancipation of Mimi’ album, I expected better. The subject matter in ‘Video’ has been done so many times before and the beat is kinda generic, so the song comes across ‘dated’. I’ve heard better tracks from him, such as ‘Turn It Up’ and ‘Hood Love’, so hopefully he delivers on his next offerings.
Bone Thugs N’ Harmony (ft. Mariah Carey & Bow Wow) – L.O.V.E (SNIPPET)
The clip is kinda short, so I can’t give a full review. However, from what I can hear, the track sounds like its gonna be good. I’m sure it’s a Jermaine Durpi production; the beat sounds real ‘JDish‘ and I can hear him shouting in the background lol. Mariah’s flow on the hook sounds great, dunno why Bow Wow is on the track though.
Still In Love (Kissing You)
Flaws & All
This video is real simple, so it matches the theme of the song. She lets her guards down and shows some of her true personality, which we often don’t see.
WOAH. This video is FIYAH! I’m liking the whole concept…everything. She ain’t ever brought it like this in terms of a video before. Beyonce’s former band mates Kelly and Michelle feature in the video too. She should have saved herself the time and just released this and ‘Green Light’, as they are clearly two of her best videos. PERIOD.
Now this is what I’m talking about. Everything about this video is ON-POINT! I’m liking the ‘different’ vibe/choreography she went for on this one. I applaud the fact that she’s doing something kinda different here too. Hands down one her best video’s yet…
This one’s a straight dance/concept video. I’m liking it for what it is but some of the other vids are much better. She was working the choreography though.
Ok, so Beyonce’s B’Day Deluxe is leaking left, right and centre; videos, tracks…everything. This vid for ‘Freakum Dress’ ain’t bad, but it makes me wonder if there was any point in the whole ‘making a video for every song’ idea in the first place. There’s nothing innovative or interesting enough to make me want to go out and buy the album because of it. What’s more is that you can tell they were on a budget…it’s kinda cheap. To be honest, the only video’s that show any signs of being worthwhile are ‘Get Me Bodied’ and ‘Green Light’. Let’s hope the other vids are saying more than this.
While Stone had some harsh criticism for today’s crop of R&B singers, her most scathing words were saved specifically for singer-actress Christina Milian, who just so happens to be the ex-girlfriend of her ex-boyfriend, Beau Dozier.
Stone describes most singers today as “just highly paid strippers.” When told she may have just insulted a large swath of singers, she cocked her head to the side, flashed an innocent smile and said, “What? It’s not like I’m not telling the truth.”
When Christina Milian’s name came up in conversation, Stone, according to writer Aliya S. King, “doesn’t bother to hide her disdain for the woman who Dozier, now Stone’s ex-boyfriend, once dated.”
Stone told King: “I could tell you some stories about her… ,” then launched into a “profanity-laced tirade against the pop star.”
King writes: “After I point to my tape recorder, reminding her that she’s on record, Stone doesn’t quit. Instead, she continues to go off on Milian and, even worse, Milian’s mother. ‘I’m just honest,’ Stone concludes with a shrug.”
“Christina has never met Joss,” Milan’s publicist responds. “She can’t imagine what this is all about.”
Ain’t this funny? How does she manage to to call out anybody else when she, herself, has a shady background?. Wasn’t it just a few short weeks ago that Joss came under fire in the ‘F*cking for Tracks’ exposé? What she doesn’t seem to understand is that she can call all these R&B chicks ‘hoes’ all she likes but at least they’re ‘hoes’ for all to see! She, on the other hand, is a ‘hoe’ behind closed doors and that’s worse. She needs to sit down.
