Cissy Houston On Whitney: She Was Taught. She Knew The Way.

Whitney Houston’s mother says her daughter was raised well, but made choices that took her down the wrong path.

Remembering Whitney

Whitney Houston’s mother says her daughter was raised well, but made choices that took her down the wrong path.

“I think that good mothers and good fathers and good families don’t always have great children. Bad people have good children. It’s all their responsibility when they get to certain age to choose their way. She (was) taught, she knew the way,”

Cissy is opening up about her daughter in her new book, “Remembering Whitney: My Story of Love, Loss, and The Night The Music Stopped”.

Still, she isn’t above wondering if she could have done something differently. In one passage, she refers to her own feelings of guilt. “Nippy,” a nickname she used for Whitney “was better than anybody I know at keeping her stuff private — at least, private from me.” She later continues: “I’m still so angry — at Nippy, at the world, at myself. There are days when the questions just consume me … Was I a good mother? Was I too hard on her? And the worst one of all — could I have saved her somehow?”

Cissy Houston doesn’t blame Whitney’s ex-husband, Bobby Brown, for  her daughter’s troubles outright, but she doesn’t hold back about an incident which she believes was physical abuse. She talks about visiting Whitney in the hospital after her daughter needed surgery for a two inch gash in her cheek, which she suffered while on a cruise with Brown.

She writes that Whitney and Bobby “swore up and down later that it was just a freak accident,” related to Brown slamming his fist down while “acting out about something,” sending a piece of china flying.

Amber Riley Performs Beautiful Tribute To Naya Rivera On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’

RIP.

Whenever Amber Riley and Naya Rivera combined their insurmountable talents on the hit show Glee there was an almost tangible magic that left fans in awe of the powerhouse duo. Playing Mercedes Jones and Santana Lopez respectively, the two characters may not have always seen eye to eye but when they joined you knew you were in for a memorable performance. It is sad to think that we will never get another “River Deep, Mountain High” or “The Boy Is Mine” moment after Rivera’s passing last month but there is something special in knowing Riley will carry the torch for her fallen costar forever.

On Thursday night introduced by guest-host Lil Rel, Riley virtually appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!  to perform a new song from her EP entitled “A Moment” which was dedicated to Rivera. “Not too long ago we both lost a really amazing friend in a tragic accident and we both will miss her forever,” said Lil Rel. The performance is displayed in black and white and features Riley singing in front of a montage of photos of her former co-star. It is truly stunning.

Check out the tribute below.

You Will Have Hearts In Your Eyes When You See Cardi B’s New Hair Do

Published

Wait till you see her WAP (Wonderfully Artistic Pigtails)

Cardi B has never shied away from a bold look and her latest hair do is proof of that.

The 27-year-old “WAP” singer…song of the year IMO…took to Instagram Tuesday night to show off her pink, heart-shaped pigtails and people are loving the look. In the short video Cardi asks fans if they would “go to the club with your hair like this” and I think we can all agree that this look would definitely turn heads at the clurb.

The artistic hair do was crafted by Cardi’s long time longtime stylist Tokyo Stylez and took at least three hours to complete. Fans commented about how beautiful the unique hairstyle is but questioned how the rapper was going to sleep that night. Let’s hope those pigtails can be twisted off and be thrown on the nightstand.

Check It Out, Joe Jonas Has Shocked His Fans With His New Look

Published

I’m a sucker for his new do.

It doesn’t matter if you are more of a “Nick” or a “Kevin” or a “Joe” when it comes to loving the Jonas Brothers. All that matters is that you all agree with me that Joe is obviously the most attractive of the three brothers and that’s just a fact. I’m sorry but I don’t make the rules.

The 31-year old stunned fans today earlier today when he debuted a shocking new look on his Instagram. Sporting a black t-shirt and those signature dark, furry-Murray eyebrows, Joe flashed his new platinum blond buzzcut. I know I might be in the minority here but I do love when these Hollywood hotties switch it up and do the blond thing. I loved it on Adam Levine. I loved it on Zac Efron. I even found myself oddly drawn to the OG platinum stud, James Michael Tyler aka Gunther from Friends.

Perhaps the new do is a part of Joe’s daddy-makeover as he and his wife, Sophie Turner, recently welcomed their first child, Willa. A source told ET “Sophie and Joe have named their daughter Willa. The couple’s bond has gotten even stronger since the addition of their daughter. Although circumstances are different right now because of the [coronavirus] pandemic, Joe was there for the birth of his daughter. The couple is happy they now have time to spend at home with their daughter and get used to their new life together.”

Be still my heart.
